Actress Kangana Ranaut's performance in her latest outing "Tanu Weds Manu Returns" (TWMR) has garnered her rave reviews from film critics as well as audiences.
Directed by Anand L Rai, "Tanu Weds Manu Returns" is a sequel to hit Bollywood film "Tanu Weds Manu". This comedy movie revolves around a comic love triangle between Tanu, Manu and Kusum. Kangana Ranaut plays both Tanu and Kusum, characters that are opposite to each other.
After Himanshu Sharma's amazing script, her performance is the biggest asset of the movie. With this film, she has taken her acting skills to a different level, say film critics.
Here is what critics have to say about Kangana Ranaut's performance in "Tanu Weds Manu Returns":
As far as the performances are concerned, absolutely no prizes for guessing who is the undisputed captain of the ship - Kangna Ranaut, who delivers a career best performance. Her performance in the film is definitely award worthy, which will also add one more feather in her cap after QUEEN. She really knows how to carry the film on her shoulders. Despite having excelled in both the roles, it is her portrayal of Kusum with Haryanvi accent that remains etched forever. The impact of her roles is so significant that you just cannot imagine any other actress in her role. She gets into the skin of both the characters the very way like a fish takes to water.
Tanu Weds Manu Returns boasts one of the finest double roles ever in Hindi cinema. Kangana is breathtakingly good, both as doll-like drama queen Tanu and simple, dignified, earthy Kusum, whose wide-eyed honesty, flat, sporty figure and large, dusty teeth contrast sharply with Tanu's peachy prettiness, her dressy appeal, her petulant rosebud mouth, her vain, glittering fragility. Each role is performed with sensitivity, precision and flair, Kangana displaying the confidence of a talent Queen.
Kangana Ranaut has done a fabulous job with her characters Tanu and Datto. Tanu hasn't lost her weird, irresponsible and audacious ways, Datto is a sincere, young girl, a fiercely independent one, who takes up responsibilities. From the body languages of the two women to their accents, Kangana aces it to the T. She proves yet again that she is one of the few heroines in Bollywood who is willing to experiment with different roles and still come out as the most convincing every time.
Kangana Ranaut, in a magnificently effective double role, powers the comic drama forward with an effortless act that requires her to embody two diametrically divergent faces of Eve in small-town India. Tanu Weds Manu Returns vindicates the general belief that Kangana is currently in a zone where she can do no wrong.
Kangana is a double delight in Tanu Weds Manu Returns!
The real draw of Tanu Weds Manu Returns is that you get two Kangana Ranauts to entertain you, and she delivers in a huge way. Both her avatars are so likeable you (almost) forget the gaffes of the film.
