A typical climax scene in any rom-com movie will have the lead couple marrying, thereby signifying a happy ending. But here is Tanu Weds Manu Returns, a movie that starts where other stories end.

As viewers, when the movie ends, we do end up wondering how the married life of the lead characters will be like and here is filmmaker Aanand L Rai who is ready to show us just that.

Tanu Weds Manu Returns Cast: Kangana Ranaut, Madhavan, Jimmy Shergill

Tanu Weds Manu Returns Director: Aanand L Rai

Tanu Weds Manu Returns Plot:

The movie grips you from the very first scene, which shows the Tanu (Kangana Ranaut) and Manu (Madhavan) sitting in front of the doctors at a mental asylum. During their four years of married life the couple have changed causing them to constantly fight with each other.

Manu is fed up and decides to get divorced. With a nervous state of mind he sends her the notice and a pissed off Tanu comes back to her hometown and meets her ex Raja (Jimmy Shergill) and all her old boyfriends.

Meanwhile Manu meets Kusum, Tanu lookalike at a college lecture. She sings ‘I might be sentimental' in Haryanvi style which causes Manu to fall in love with her. Kusum who gets to know about Manu's feelings decides she doesn't want to have an extra marital affair with him.

Meanwhile Kusum's marriage gets fixed with Raja Avasthi (Tanu's ex from Tanu Weds Manu).

Tanu Weds Manu Returns Performances:

Needless to say, but Kangana Ranaut has given stellar performances in both the roles she has essayed, Tanu and Kusum. But more whistles for Kangana's Haryanvi character which she performed with aplomb. This movie will easily see her win a number of awards and may even beat her Queen record. Madhavan may be overshadowed by Kangana in the film, but his realistic acting is very enchanting. He doesn't try too much and therefore is simple role captivates you.

Supporting characters like Deepak Dobriyal, Mohammed Zeeshan Ayyub, Jimmy Sheirgill, and Swara Bhaskar make this movie memorable and a sure shot winner.

Aanand has struck the right cord with the way he has directed this movie. It is very difficult to direct a hit sequel to a successful movie but Mr. Rai has managed to do it with much exquisiteness.

Himanshu Sharma who has written the story deserves a standing ovation for it doesn't seem make believe and is in fact very feasible and believable.

Manu Is Back

Manu aka Madhavan is back. He and Dhanush are the only two South Indian actors who have been accepted with open arms by the Bollywood audience. Every Hindi movie that Madhavan does has been brillaint and one can't wait to see him on the big screen again.

Tanu & Kusum

Actors essaying double roles in movies is not a new thing but in this movie we have to give a standing ovation to Kangana Ranaut who has portrayed these two different roles with atmost perfection.

Kusum's Accent

It is not a easy thing to learn a different dialect, let a alone a whole new accent along with it. But Kangana being the talented artist that she is, mastered the Haryanvi dialect which can be seen in the trailer.

Raja Too Is Back

Jimmy Shergill as Raja is back in the sequel. His love story with Tanu in the first part was interrupted by Manu, let's see how far his romance will go this time.

Manu & Kusum

We have already seen the chemistry of Tanu and Manu in part one, but this time Manu's chemistry with Kusum transcends on a different level. The innocence and purity of love can be easily seen.

Manu's Smile

Many of you may wonder why this point? But a lot of Madhavan fans will agree with the above mentioned point. His smile is killing and in a good way! He just mesmerizes you every time he smiles and a lot of female fans will be heading to theatre to see that killer smile on the big screen.


Anand's previous movies, Tanu Weds Manu and Ranjhanna were both good and from the looks of it, Tanu Weds Manu Returns seems to be heading in the same direction.


The songs of the movie have managed to click with the audience for they not only suit the theme of the movie but are also very catchy and fun.

Ensemble Cast

The film has a lot of new characters to keep you engaged as well as spend your time LOL'ing at their jokes. Two new additions, Mohammad Zeeshan Ayyub and Rajesh Sharma will surely entertain you with their acts.
