It’s a bit corny, but director brings out the original and impulsive situations in TANU WEDS MANU.
Character of Manu (Madhavan) is s quiet, humble and soft-spoken, has no tone of voice or mind-set, believes in arranged marriages, enjoys old songs, and is unfashionable plainly. Character of Tanu (Kangna) is argumentative and a dictator, had many affairs, also has her new boyfriend's name tattooed on her chest, is a clear-cut and daring babe.
London based Manu is a very simple guy and an ideal groom for every parents. Family pressures lead him to Kanpur to meet Manu for his marriage. After reaching there he founds out that Manu is dead against arranged marriages and is a fearless babe who smokes, drinks and gives bad words. However fate holds something entirely unlike for these dissimilar personalities.
First hour entertains you, but second half gives you bit of boredom. Though the movie was clichéd but director Aanand L Rai make sure that TANU WEDS MANU maintains its individualism and doesn't come from corner to corner as a copy of those enormously agreeable films. In fact, his treatment of quite a lot of light moments is commendable. Also the climax is the best moment of this endeavor. Climax of the film lift its status and you with a big smile on your face while leaving the theatre.
Madhavan was very convincing. He is authentic, controlled, yet dynamic. To treatise a personality in such a modest way is a big time test and Madhavan does it with an absolute indulgent of its character.
Kangna was bold, but lovable. She plays a division that has an enthusiasm for life. He character is courageous and joyful, and she does it with full conviction.
On the whole, TANU WEDS MANU is a feel-good entertainer film which will bring smile to your faces.
