Film: Tanu Weds Manu Click for more info

Bunty Aur Bubli, Neil n Nikki, boy meets girl. You kinda go into a film like this with a certain expectation of what the next two and a half hours are going to be like. Sassy girl pulls meek boy into her world where he falls in love with someone who he never would have thought of falling in love with, or even hated two minutes ago. You know the drill.

But no. Tanu Weds Manu seemed to disappoint more than entertain, and that not least because of the major spoiler in the title. Tanu wasn't sassy enough, Manu not meek, and the whole thing just didn't work as well as it should have. There just wasn't the chemistry, the flow, that these films need to have.

But even putting that aside you find a film put together with little care, a lot of it not making much sense. This confusion only served to distract you from the charm and humour in the film, although I wouldn't say that the script was immensely funny.

But there was a little bit of charm, and Kangana Ranaut just about pulls off the care free wild girl who needs to be tamed. But this just wasn't enough and so I can't quite recommend this, although perhaps it's one to wait on for a DVD.
