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 »
'Tanu Weds Manu', directed by Anand L. Rai, is a Good Film, that offers entertaining moments in the first, as well as the in second hour, and manages to hold your attention. Sure, it's flawed, but it never really loses it's pace, which works on it's advantage.
'Tanu Weds Manu' is a Romantic-Comedy, about how two extreme opposites attract. But, like every Love-Story, there are faced by several obstacles, which they face, and eventually get over with.
Himanshu Sharma's Writing is First-Rate in the first hour, as it offers some really interesting sequences. But, the writing dips in the second hour, and tends to drag a bit. However, a convincing culmination does the trick. Anand L. Rai directs this Romantic-Comedy ably. Cinematography is perfect. Music by Krsna, is super.
Performance-Wise: Both R. Madhavan and Kangna Ranaut shine in their respective parts. Jimmy Shergill is excellent. An Under-Rated Actor! Deepak Dobriyal is lovable. Eijaz Khan supports well. Rajendra Gupta is flawless, as always. Others lend good support.
On the whole, A light-entertainer, that can definitely be viewed once.
