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 fiancé. 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 »

Good things in life come in small packages
20 May 2011 | by AvinashPatalaySee all my reviews

The promos were indeed eye-catching but the way it raked "moolah" at the box-office indeed took the entire industry by surprise. The constituents of "Tanu Weds Manu" is its honesty and down to earth treatment. The screenplay makes the proceedings believable and add to that a script which is very much a spoken language making the audience to instantly connect.

√ Maddy:: A much awaited deserving solo hit which hopefully should translate into bagging some interesting projects. BTW - Manu Sharma being a engineer-cum-doctor in London served no purpose to the actual plot. And yes, a natural performance indeed.

√ Kangana:: The rebellious character "Tanu "with a mind of her own has been borrowed from many (recently Ms. Padukone in "Break Ke Baad"). Now that the movie is a hit, Kangana surely has added the feather to her cap. No doubt she has given her honest best but it showed that she was over- doing it. Perhaps it would have been natural had Anushka or Deepika were brought on board.

√ Deepak Dobrial:: A waste of talent. Ended up being a side-kick while I was hoping his character would leave a lasting impact.

√ Ravi Kishen:: Good diversion at the beginning but ended up with a special appearance.

√ Jimmy Shergill:: Good "tough guy" performance (and would have certainly helped to pour in the audience from Punjab).

√ K K Raina, Rajendra Gupta & Navni Parihar:: Lend adequate support.

Songs went on to become popular after the movie churned good numbers. "Tanu Weds Manu" certainly deserves one time watch.
