Tanu Weds Manu Returns is the story of a married couple–four year after their ‘happily ever after’. Tanu (Kangana Ranaut) is tired of her husband Manu (R Madhawan) a doctor in London. She finds him boring.
The movie is a sequel to the 2011 film, Tanu Weds Manu, where the couple falls in love.
At a marriage counseling session in London, Manu loses his cool and is admitted into a mental asylum. Tanu packs her bags and flies to Kanpur, where the couple’s families live.
Manu follows her to India weeks later. Even though they are living in the same city they never talk. Things turn ugly when Manu sends his wife a divorce notice.
Tanu, the rebel queen, uses it as an excuse to flirt with her former love interests. Manu on the other hand during a guest lecture at Delhi University spots an athlete, Kusum also played by Kangana. Her resemblance to his wife surprises him.
He follows her around and the two finally strike a friendship. Somewhere along they fall in love and decide to get married.
When Tanu finds out about the marriage, she rushes to Manu and tries to woo him back.
The plot is fast, and Kangana breathes life to both her roles. The female lead roles are strong powerful women who do not cow down to pressure and whine and shed tears.
The movie has jokes that will get the audience roaring with laughter.
A fun watch, totally recommend it.
