Manu is perfect marriage material. Tanu is heavily screwed up. And yet, in some wacky, filmy sort of way, they are made for each other.

Welcome to this fun filled caper where one of them finds true love, and the other discovers new love. 'Tanu Weds Manu' offers you the maximum in terms of enjoyment that can be bought in the price of one cinema ticket. For even more, you might as well decide to get hitched yourself.

The story is awesome from the word Go: The setting is a rustic household in ChamanGanj, Kanpur (which is incidentally a Muslim majority area, and the effect is apparent on a Brahmin household where the girl wears chunky jewellery with red and green suits), where the unsuspecting, London-return docile boy comes to see his prospective bride. Girl in question has swallowed sleeping pills with booze and is sleeping while he sizes her up, and makes good use of his camera phone for future use. The mood is already set with this ribtickling start (where a young girl is doing the naagin dance for prospective jeejaji), and the makers don't disappoint till the very end.

What makes this film an absolute treat (even though it is strikingly similar to Namaste London - it can be called NL2.0, and still it packs enough punch not to be written of as a remake) is the entire gamut of side characters, all of which have well etched out roles - Pappi, Jassi, Raja, Payal all of them do justice to their characters and ethnicities. The Delhites, Lucknawis, Kanpuriyas, Biharis and Punjus all exude realism by their accents and personalities. To top them all, Kangana Ranaut redefines the 'Jabraat' babe and Madhavan delights with his loveable, teddy bear act.

My only grouse is the somewhat weak climax, and the unrealistic transformation of the bride. But to borrow from the film: Thoda sa raita fail bhee jaaye to chalta hae: aakhirkaar Mannu bhaiya ne kar hi dikhaaya !!

A word of caution: Are you really going to take my word for TWM? I share a name and state with Madhavan, and am currently camping out in Kanpur. I simply cannot find fault with this flick !!! :-) :-)
