Storyline

The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel is the expansionist dream of Sonny (Dev Patel), and it's making more claims on his time than he has available, considering his imminent marriage to the love of his life, Sunaina (Tina Desai). Sonny has his eye on a promising property now that his first venture, The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel for the Elderly and Beautiful, has only a single remaining vacancy - posing a rooming predicament for fresh arrivals Guy (Richard Gere) and Lavinia (Tamsin Greig). Evelyn and Douglas (Judi Dench and Bill Nighy) have now joined the Jaipur workforce, and are wondering where their regular dates for Chilla pancakes will lead, while Norman and Carol (Ronald Pickup and Diana Hardcastle) are negotiating the tricky waters of an exclusive relationship, as Madge (Celia Imrie) juggles two eligible and very wealthy suitors. Perhaps the only one who may know the answers is newly installed co-manager of the hotel, Muriel (Maggie Smith), the keeper of everyone's secrets. As ... Written by Fox Searchlight

26 February 2015 Film of Choice at The Plaza Dorchester Tonight - The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel. Checking into back into The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel was like visiting old friends with a familiarity that is both comfortable and welcoming. We are reintroduced to all the old characters as we follow the next part of their adventure in the home for the Elderly and Beautiful situated in Jaipur, India. You have to smile as the effervescent enthusiasm of the totally inept Sonny bubbles over in every single thing he does. Held together by the team around him, Sonny finds the demands on his time pulling him in all directions as he tries to expand his business and arrange his marriage. The audience were laughing throughout as we bounced back and forth between each character's story and the addition of both Tamsin Grieg and Richard Gere were both entertaining and welcome. It was great to go back, the film was bright in colour, humour and emotion and I must confess I will be going back to see it at the cinema and definitely buying the DVD.
