Meet 'Manu', a seedha saadha Doctor from London. Intelligent, temperate and from a respectable family, The perfect groom which every parent wants for their daughter. 'Family pressure' leads him to Kanpur to meet Tanu the quintessential small town girl who has studied in Delhi. Tanu is a smart, intelligent girl who will do everything that her parents will disapprove. With a mind of her own and a love for rebellion, Tanu is dead against an arranged marriage. But destiny holds something totally different for these dramatically diverse personalities. Their paths keep crossing time and again and weaves this wonderful story through the Indian heartland.
The sequel, just released, to Tanu Weds Manu seemed interesting so I thought I'd better watch the original first. The film was quite slow but more annoying was the quality of the DVD. It was very dark and clearly not an original, more like a pirated copy with ring tone promos on the top of the screen. Very very disappointing.
