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 fianc√©. 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 nice time pass movie
25 February 2011 | by pargat89See all my reviews

Today i watched Tannu weds Mannu without much expectations from it, but it turned out to be a good time pass movie.

First half is really like a roller coaster ride. Lots of humor with some 'beeped slangs'. It was really funny to hear Indian slags from Kangna who is playing a role of a bindass girl.. ;). As the movie move on you create an interest in the story. Unlike most of bollywood movies where you can predict every scene before, this movie is some what different.

Second half is comparatively slow and the story calms down with some emotional touch in the movie. Story becomes somehow predictable, but it needs to be that way. They couldn't do much in that.

Kangna has shown in couple of her last movie that she can also act a bit. Madhavan is good as always.

Overall it is a good time pass movie. Go and watch it if you are bored with you daily routine and want some fun.
