The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel Movie Review

The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel

Length:- 2 hr. 4 min.

Inter cultural thoughts can be fascinating or shocking based on your own perspective and living style. If you love understanding new cultures you can take positively even the negative part of a different culture by understanding how and why it’s so unique. “The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel” is the sequel to the movie “The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel”. The prequel was much appreciated in many countries. Thus, the film become an eventual hit. This time as well we have something similar in the sequel. Sonny (Dev Patel) is looking for some financial support to make his hotel better.

In the opening sequence Sonny goes to US along with Evelyn Greenslade (Judi Dench) for raising funds for his hotel. But before investing the investors wants to check whether it’s worth investing or not? They say they will send an inspector to see how the hotel is doing? The cast is almost the same as the previous one but unlike other time it’s not that entertaining and funny. What’s missing here is the charm which should make us fall in love with the country? Even though we have interesting ideas in movie they are not enough to make great movie.

It looks the movie needed some more work rather than just a simplistic satire on India. What’s shown in the movie nicely is the kindness of the general Indian people. The film shows that no matter how different Indians are, they are actually very kind and generous in nature. That’s where movie tries to makes you fall in love with the place. The actors who are almost entirely the same as in the last movie certainly makes a good impression on you. They eat pancake in the Jaipur just to make sure they are not missing their home food.

Despite of the good things present here the movie may be a little drag at times. This intercultural drama has come up with some half way executed nice ideas. Personally, I was expecting much better from this movie which I didn’t get. Overall, I could say that I found the sequel a bit less nicer than the prequel. The kind of fun and enjoyment in the first movie was way to better.

Verdict:- Not that Good

Ratings:- 2. 5 / 5 Stars
