Tanu Weds Manu Returns

Tanu Weds Manu Returns film begs the following question

Have you ever seen a hindi movie dominated by a Heroine? Maybe a few (in the past).Yes.

Have you ever seen a hindi movie where the heroine makes a mincemeat of the Hero and dominates every frame of the reel. Beginning to end?

If you have not - see this movie. Kangana run out's the hapless hero in the movie

'Banno tera swagger laage sexy’ - is an apt tune for Kangana Ranaut's uninhibited performance in the movie

Just Watching her free wheeling baarati dances will be enough to say - Paisa vasool. In one such dance, she just gives vent to her frustration and if you want to see an angry young girl equivalent of Amitabh Bacchhan, those few frames will convince you.

Kangana Ranaut heralds a new breed of heroine - breaking the Stereotypical Indian female in Hindi cinema in every possible way. There is an edginess about her, a kind of gay abandon too. But what is interesting about her is that she is capable of carrying the burden of the entire movie on her slender shoulder, like she does in  Tanu Weds Manu Returns.

The Manali girl slips into a Haryanvi dame role with aplomb, the Sita-aur-Gita formula gets rehashed a bit but Kangana Ranaut is Gita-turned-Sita vs another Gita in this rollicking sequel.
