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

When Manu Sharma goes to Raja Avasthi's house for the first time to see Raja's sister for marriage, Raja's father introduces another girl 'Sapna' to Manu's father, as Raja's fiancé. Sapna neither appears nor is mentioned in the movie later; Yet, later Raja is seen trying to marry Tanu in a Court in Kapurthala. It should also be noted that Raja was the one to send 4-5 goons (via his another friend Ravi Kishan) to scare Manu when he first reaches Kanpur Station. It is confusing because Raja is already Engaged to be married to Sapna at that time. See more »

A candy floss cinema for a perfect weekend.
4 August 2011 | by (India) – See all my reviews

TANU WEDS MANU is a feel good movie with its own pros and flaws.

The movie starts off well with a typical start like a rom com movie added a Punjabi funk and flavor to it.

The film manages to hook you with its sheer atmospherics.The director creates an extremely busy and colorful canvas brimming with characters who are anything but cardboard cut-outs.

If Madhavan fleshes out a heart-tugging, oh-so-lonely and acutely Desi NRI, winning you over with his shy smiles and well-mannered chutzpah, then Kangna Ranaut's wild cat rebel is endearing too.The feel good attitude of the film is what it makes a worth watch.

The story by Himashu Sharma is good but nothing new.The factor that keeps you engaged is the unpredictability.Dialogues are catchy and witty at the same time.Good score here.But the screenplay is okay.

The editing by Hemal Kothari is lousy.The film could have been tightened post interval.The ups and downs in the rom com could have been elaborated slightly better.Kangna's transformation from wild cat to Susy etches.Cinematography by Chitranjan Das is good.

Music is a complete surprise. Debutant Krsna takes a good start here.Background score is good and it complements the movie.

Aanand L. Rai after a good start with "Strangers" looks promising here.He has managed well to differentiate an ordinary rom com with this one.

TANU WEDS MANU deserves to be a different cinema in its genre due to directions.Minus few Hiccups in story section,the director has managed well the overall flow of the movie.
