Tanu Weds Manu


Tanu Weds ManuLighthearted romantic movies are usually liked by cine-goers. It hardly goes unwatched. ‘’ also belongs to the same genre. It’s simple, romantic and lovely. Films like ‘Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge’, ‘Namastey London’ speaks how an Indian heart mingle with someone Indian living in pardes. In ‘’ also, the male protagonist was shown coming to India in search of an Indian bride.

Manu (Madhavan) is a NRI doctor who comes to India to marry a simple, homely Indian girl. He searches for Indian ethnics in his would-be-wife. His hunts end when he met Tanu from Kanpur. Manu and Tanu is two different person of diverse quality. Manu is silent, unlike an NRI, he is simple, down to earth, not fashionable believes in arranged marriage and lover of Mohammed Rafi’s songs. While Tanu is a bindas kudi, graduated from Delhi University.

Slowly and steady Manu conquers Tanu’s heart through his simplicity.

But destiny has stored something else for Tanu. Manu helps Tanu to move her cycle of lovebut she finally falls for him. But director Aanand L Rai emphasis on the point that the film does not have similar plot like the other films and have its own individuality.

The film is very strong in the beginning but in the middle, it losses grip and becomes very ordinary. Aanand could not justify certain points.

The soundtracks of ‘’ could not impress more except 'Sadi Gali' and 'Jugni'. Chirantan Das's cinematography well lifted the culture and tradition of North India. 

Speaking about performances, R. Madhavan as NRI guy was impressive. He played his part well.
was also fine but it takes time to accept her in the role of small town girl as she was always seen in the role of ultra modern and addictive role. played his part quite well.

In the nutshell, ‘’ is not a bad watch, quite enjoyable. It is a entertaining film, very refreshing.
