Tanu Weds Manu review: Not a typical NRI love story

Tanu Weds Manu released in theatres. If you have watched movies like Salam-e-Ishq, Slumdog Millionaire or Namaste London and liked them then you would also like this movie.

Tanu Weds Manu is an NRI plus desi girl love story which is quite a common theme in Bollywood movies. Tanuja Trivedi aka Tanu (Kangna Ranaut) is a girl from Kanpur. A graduate from Delhi University is a rebellious girls who likes fast bike, alcohol and

Che-Guevara. On the contrary, Manoj Sharma aka Manu (R Madhavan) is an MBBS from London who despite being brought up in a western country would not do anything his parents dislike. TWM shows how these two opposite characters falls in love and finally gets married.

Tanu Weds Manu has a great fast half but the story is stretched out in the second half. Some scenes are very well executed while the others are not so good. However, it is not the typical NRI type love story and the makers made sure it does not end up like that. The climax of the movie is also interesting.

R Madhavan played the NRI character very well. Kangana also did very good but what would bother viewers is the sudden change in her character. From a outspoken girl, she suddenly turns docile.
