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.

As a series of eerie coincidences turns lethal, threatening the lives of those she loves, Cecilia's sanity begins to unravel while she desperately tries to prove she is being hunted by someone nobody can see. 


REVIEW:
I sorta hated the beginning.
Starts outs so dark that you can't really make anything out. Hard to know what's going on if you can't see.
It doesn't take long to get light though.
Thankfully.
Man, does the story ever pick up after that. I don't remember much about the original but this one is intense. Right to the very last second too.
Sydney is badass and shows it throughout. Can you imagine what it would be like if everyone thought you were o…

REVIEW: I loved the whole series, but especially loved this season as it wrapped it all up.  There were a couple of moments that were so incredibly tragic, but also a couple moments where the most tragic things couldn't have happened to better people. Take Sussy for example. God, how I hated that woman through the whole show and couldn't wait for her to get what was coming to her. Did she get it here? You have to watch and see! This is the season where you will sit on the edge of your seat, waiting to see who will win the kingdom. Does your favorite character prevail above the others? MIne d…
