Tanu weds Manu Returns: Kangana steals the show twice


Tanu Weds Manu


After four years comes a sequel of the movie Tanu weds Manu  which  is still fresh in our minds and cherished by all . Seeing all the same actors at their best again was a real treat.

When i first saw the trailer i knew kangana is back with her brilliance after Queen. The movie begins with Tanu returning home from abroad alone, tired of her marital life which is no longer a bliss and a husband who is too slow and passive to her lifestyle. After all, how long can one runaway from one’s true selves. Manu who is so tortured by his marriage made in heaven that he reaches a mental asylum. And boom comes a message from Manu to Tanu, “I hate you Tanu”. Also follows court notices and divorce petitions and hence begins the battles of their egos.

An interesting addition to the movie’s cast is Chintu, who is a lawyer by profession but an unlawful tenant in Kangana’s house. And chintu is none other than Murari of Ranjhana. The same guy who said, “Tumhara pyaar na hua UPSC ka EXAM ho gaya, 10 saal ho gaye clear hi nahi ho raha”. He is popularly the “kandha” in the movie which is euphemism for a guy who gives his shoulder to a girl who is heart broken. Like liquid from pyaar ka punchnama but a ferocious one.

Admist world war between the husband and wife, enters kusum sangwa, a national athelete and is a look alike of Tanu. Kangana speaks fluent english in the movie but her haryanwi is unbeatable. And Manu falls for her, initially for her resemblance with his wife, and later also because she is like his wife. Did he like Kusum or just want another Tanu because he still likes Tanu? Now that’s like a life question, if you fall for a person just like your ex, is it because you still love your ex? Well may be the movie will answer it for you.

Adding colors to the movie are Raja awasti, Jassi and Payal in their own special way. The humor quotient of the movie is at its peak. Where women are shown as bold and independent they are also shown as nagging, cribbing wives and where men are shown as the calm and peaceful race, they are also shown as the confused and emotional husbands:P.

Well the review can go on and on with praises for the movie, but one last mention will be for the songs. My personal favorite : Banno tera swagger laage sexy 🙂 🙂




Piku !! A daughter’s story :). A movie review


Rating: 4/5

Shoojit sircar is back again with a heart warming story of Piku after Vicky Donor and is shot yet again in a Bengali household.

He has served you the Bengali family on a plate just the way it is. I could almost see my family on the screen. Loud, arrogant,  vehement , animated, fierce but yet so true to their heart.  There are scenes in the movie where we would not know if the family is fighting or talking to each other. 🙂 Advocating women empowerment is possibly our favourite topic and giving an opinion on every matter is our birth right, or rather we think its our responsibility .

The theme of the movie , is very carefully chosen and the message that you how much you need to care for your parents is well shared. Though for a major part of the movie we see Piku and her dad bickering on topics like potty( motion) 😛 , you would never for once doubt piku’s love for her dad. Piku so rightly says, “jab ma baap budey ho jaatey hai, unko zinda rakhna padta hai'(when your parents are old you have to keep them alive).


Amitabh’s brilliant presence on the screen will make you adore Bhaskor, though he is actually an annoying, senile and a old selfish father.  At times when Irfan tries to advise Amitabh on how to avoid constipation you would see effortless innocence in Amitabh’s eyes.

Every actor has been so true to their character. Special mention for Mousami chatterjee in a young vibrant maashi’s role. And Deepika, looked stunning, she can carry any piece of cloth.

Our generation i feel is already very connected to its roots and we appreciate every bit of our culture and no matter how much we rebel against our parents we still love them the most. This movie rightly potrays so.

Every aspect of the movie was carefully crafted and tailor made for any Bengali. And if you are not a bengali , but appreciate art, culture, streets of Kolkata, Deepika 😉  and Amitabh then its a must watch. You will come out of the theatre wondering, if Shit can actually be described with so many adjectives.
