Tanu Weds Manu - Notepad

wogma rating: Watch if you have nothing better to do (?)
quick review:

45 minutes of complete entertainment followed by 55 dull ones of nothing happening. All of which is tied up in the 20 most 'blah' ones ever written. You do the math. Kangna is a misfit and the film has the worst climax a film could ever have.

Plot Summary

Manu (R Madhavan) is a NRI settled in the US for 12 years. He's in India and his parents have organized girls for him to "see" for a marital alliance. The first girl he meets is Tanu (Kangna Ranaut). And all does not go well, or does it not?

What Worked

  • The titles linking the actor to the name of the character. Awesome!
  • The awkwardness when Manu sees Tanu for the first time.
  • Payal's (Tanu's friend's) accent.
  • The meaningless lives "good" boys live is captured in just a couple of lines.

What did not

Note: This section simply lists the things that I did not like in this movie. This is not the overall impression about this movie. Please read the full review here

  • Kangna Ranaut's silly grin in some scenes.
  • Kangna Ranaut cannot dance.

Nitty-Gritty

This section lists things that I think are not important to the overall impact of the movie. In most cases, it could be explained away by something like, "we noticed the glitch after the scene was shot and there were schedule/budget issues and thus we could not re-shoot it". I like giving the makers the benefit of doubt, but I am amused nevertheless. Hopefully, they will tickle you too.

  • Continuity jerk - Kangna Ranaut's ghungta (part of the sari forming a veil) kept moving up and down on its own.
