The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel #Movie

THE SECOND BEST EXOTIC MARIGOLD HOTEL is the expansionist dream of Sonny (Dev Patel), and it's making more claims on his time than he has available, considering his imminent marriage to the love of his life, Sunaina (Tina Desai). Sonny has his eye on a promising property now that his first venture, The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel for the Elderly and Beautiful, has only a single remaining vacancy - posing a rooming predicament for fresh arrivals Guy (Richard Gere) and Lavinia (Tamsin Greig). Evelyn and Douglas (Judi Dench and Bill Nighy) have now joined the Jaipur workforce, and are wondering where their regular dates for Chilla pancakes will lead, while Norman and Carol (Ronald Pickup and Diana Hardcastle) are negotiating the tricky waters of an exclusive relationship, as Madge (Celia Imrie) juggles two eligible and very wealthy suitors. Perhaps the only one who may know the answers is newly installed co-manager of the hotel, Muriel (Maggie Smith), the keeper of everyone's secrets. As the demands of a traditional Indian wedding threaten to engulf them all, an unexpected way forward presents itself.

My review for The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel


REVIEW:
Almost as good as the first film.
It was definitely nice to see all the faces from the original movie. Richard Gere was a nice addition, he did play a rather interesting role. If you have seen the first movie, you will laugh at how his character romances the most unlikely character. He does succeed with her, but that is what is funny. She doesn't seem like the romancing type in the first one.
Again, this film was deeply rich in Indian culture and traditions. I was in awe through most of it, especially the wedding ceremony. A breathtaking moment.
The end of the movie had me so choked up though. It was really beautiful. While I know the movie is complete and there was no cliffhanger, I do hope there will be another made. I love visiting the Best Exotic Marigold Hotels, both of them. 

4/5

  1. I agree with your review, it was almost as good as the first one; these are fabulous movies and plots and actors. The cinematography is so good I can almost smell the Indian spices in the bazaars.
