Storyline

London-based Dr. Manoj Sharma returns home to Delhi, and in the company of his parents, Kishan and Anju, as well as several others, travels to Chaman Ganj, Kanpur, Uttar Pradesh to meet his prospective bride, Tanuja Trivedi. He approves of her, informs his elders and they begin preparations for the marriage. Subsequently he gets a rude awakening when Tanuja tells him that she already has a boyfriend and plans to marry him even against her parents' wishes. Manoj informs his parents, and they set about to see other girls for their son - albeit in vain - as he has his heart set on Tanuja, and is all set to return back unmarried. Manoj and Tanuja are fated to meet again in Kapurthala, Punjab, while attending the marriage of Jaspreet Singh Jassi and Payal Sinha. While Manoj hopes to win Tanuja's heart - he will face more rejection when she enlists his assistance to elope with another male. Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

Goofs

Throughout the movie, Tanu has curly hair. Immediately after the marriage registrar office scene, the scene where Tanu is washing her face, you can see that her hair have been straightened. The timeline does not match as the scenes in the movie timeline are not hours apart but just immediate after the registrar scene. See more »

Tanu and Manu's Snoozefest
20 January 2012 | by (Fraggle Rock) – See all my reviews

Having read the synopsis, I became interested in Aanand Rai's 'Tanu Beds Manu'. The film starts amusingly, even though full of clichés. The beep slangs were funny but it would have been funnier if there was no beep but then again the makers wanted to make the movie family friendly I guess. I liked the references it makes to other Hindi films. The interaction between the characters are fun especially in the first half and Manu's initial struggle after being turned down by Tanu and peer and parental pressure are shown amusingly. I also enjoyed the scenes with Kangana Ranaut and Madhavan in this portion of the movie. It's only after the introduction of Raja Awasthi that things rapidly head downhill. From then on it becomes another generic Bollywood love triangle that has been overdone in, well, numerous Bollywood movies. At this point the film drags on and on until the predictable and overstretched ending. Madhavan does a brilliant job as the slightly nerdy goofy Manu. Comedy may not be Kangana's fort but she tries and is quite alright. Jimmy Shergill is wasted. Deepak Dobriyal is excellent. Ravi Kishen is wasted. Overall, this could have been a decently entertaining lighthearted fare all the way if it weren't for the lacklustre second half.
