I've never seen the amazing Bollywood Star Kangana Ranaut being
anything but Good to Great in her roles, this
beautiful ex-model that started her Bollywood career with a Bang, her
role in the gangster melodrama .... Gangster
in 2006. Sure, she's been in some uninteresting Fluff as Fashion and
Once upon a time in Mumbai but after amazing
performances in both Queen and Revolver Rani in 2014 she's one of the
greatest Female Stars at the moment.
I love her and in this sequel (i haven't seen the precursor from 2011),
a light-hearted comedy that sometimes feels a
bit too silly, it still works because of her charisma and FANTASTIC
dual role of Tanu and Datto.
I hadn't heard anything about the film before seeing it and i must confess
that when the credits were rolling i was
looking for the name of this sensational new Bollywood actress, then
i saw and understood .... Kangana as Tanu
and Datto. Ha, ha, ha, how is it possible, i was absolutely sure that
there were 2 different actresses in the roles.
I even found the gag that people mistook Datto as Tanu as a bit far-fetched,
that's how great Kangana was.
After a really weird start in a London Mental Hospital
(WTF?) the marriage between Tanu and Manu is going
to pieces and Tanu returns to India and her hometown of Kanpur.
Soon Manu follows and at a medicine cardiac-related speach in Delhi
(the university) he sees a young athletic
student training outside and in the Bollywood Masala style he falls
in love directly and starts to stalk the girl.
She resembles his soon to be ex-wife and her name is Datto/Kusum and
she could be his daughter age-wise.
With him in his amorous efforts is his brother Pappi (Deepak Dobriyal,
first time i've seen this fine actor in a
farcical role). Manoj "Manu" Sharma is played by R. Madhavan
(that was so good in horror-comedy 13 B).
Manu proposes to Datto and soon there's going to be
a wedding - maybe. Tanu has got her suitors too, the
old boyfriend Raja Awasthi (Jimmy Shergill) and the odd law student
Chintu (a funny Mohammad Zeeshan
Ayyab). There's Tanu's and Manu's friends Payal (Swara Bhaskar) and
Jassi (Eijaz Khan) and they're just
great in their supporting roles too. There's the parents and there's
Datto's brother (Rahul Sanklya) and all of
them are good. Something NOT working that great were the unfunny opening
in London and the Pappi
university farcical scene, both scenes could easily have been omitted.
