Almost everything is superb in Tanu Weds Manu Returns!
It’s funny, eclectic and wondrous. If the spin of the story is fabulous, the performances deserve a standing ovation.
Kangana Ranaut is spectacular as Haryana’s state-level athlete. She seamlessly shifts between Tanu and Kusum and you would actually believe they are two different people. Her Tanu act was something we have seen before so there is no newness to that, but Kusum is amazing!
Madhavan, in his role of this cute adorable husband, does his job well. This time, he too has some funny one-liners.
But it is Deepak Dobriyal who steals the show here. He has some of the best lines in the film, which will crack you up instantly. What works is his straight-faced way of delivering dialogues. It seems humour comes very easily to him. All of us have a friend like him, who can make us crack even with a simple way of addressing your brother’s wife, “Bhaaabi.”
Jimmy Shergil, too, deserves a mention here for looking really dashing and for some superb straight-faced humour!
Aanand L Rai has proved yet again that all you need is a correct story and some hilarious punches to move ahead…audience will do the rest.
