Bollywood Hungama's review: "TANU WEDS MANU RETURNS makes for a must watch, especially for Kangna's spellbinding performance, outstanding plot and amazing one-liners. SURE-SHOT HIT!"
Moumita Bhattacharjee of BollywoodLife.com said: "Tanu has returned with Manu this Friday and this time, everyone is making sure you don't leave the theatre without a big smile on your face. Hoots and claps are the order of the day! Catch up with Tanu once more or you will miss all the fun this weekend!"
Shubha Shetty-Saha of Mid-Day said: "After Kangana, the best thing about this film is the dialogues. Highly original and consistently connected to the roots and the ambience that it is used in, the more often than not hilarious lines add a lot of value to this largely delightful film."
Sneha May Francis of Emirates 24/7said: "if you can look past the melodrama, 'Tanu Weds Manu Returns' provides some great laughs. Go on, LOL"
Manjari Saxena of Gulf News said: "Though the plot falls short and seems to move round in circles, the story and acting — with a lot of hilarious lines — doesn't lose pace. The music is good with the foot-tapping Bano Tera Sweater and the funny Haryanvi version of Old School Girl."
Srijana Mitra Das of The Times of India said: "Aanand L. Rai merits applause for his masterful direction of Himanshu Sharma's rich, riotous story. Evoking a new-age Hrishikesh Mukherjee, Rai keeps things tight, light, yet layered - and handles two leading ladies, one of whom deserves an extra half-star."
Sarita A Tanwar of DNA said: "Tanu Weds Manu was an endearing love story with some of the most well sketched characters on screen. The same characters return and it's good to see them once more. There is a calculated effort on director Aanand L. Rai's part to make the film very different from his earlier offering and he succeeds in that."
Kusumita Das of Deccan Chronicle said: "Give this one a watch. Don't leave your brains at home entirely, but don't use them too much either."
Sweta Kaushal of Hindustan Times said: "Watch Tanu Weds Manu Returns if you love Bollywood. watch it if you follow Bollywood. and if you look down upon Bollywood, watch the movie to see how entertaining the industry can be. For people outside north India, the film is an authentic portrayal of middle-class small town India. And it is funny as hell! We'd say this is a must watch."
Film critic Taran Adarsh tweeted: "Watched #TanuWedsManuReturns. O-U-T-S-T-A-N-D-I-N-G! A hat-trick for director Aanand Rai - #TanuWedsManu, #Raanjhanaa and now this!"
"Kangna delivers a superb performance yet again, after #Queen. Madhavan is awesome, handling his part with brilliance. #TanuWedsManuReturns"
