The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel — Lost some of its charm, but not totally devoid of it — 7*/10

  • Story: Lost some of its caliber in this new instalment. Compared to the first one, the story is more confusing, even figuring some wanna be philosophy.
  • Characters: They seem to become a sort of parody of their former selves with their various antics.
  • Dialogs: Very interesting, but annoying in the case Sonny Kapoor which is an enormous diarrhea of words.
  • Scenario: The pace is hectic and doesn't let us appreciate what is happening. The scenes are cut fast and crude. The wedding dance scene is pretty nice though, it shows off the Indian's famous capabilities for dance choreography in movies.
  • Actors: Mostly good work. Cast members include Dev Patel, Judi Dench, Maggie Smith, Bill Nighy, and, unfortunately, Richard Gere which didn't give too bad a performance.
  • Photography: Very nice, sometimes beautiful.
  • Sound: Good music and score.
  • Special effects: None.
  • Synopsis & information
  • Who is it for? For those who want to know why they did a sequel and are curious to know what happens. Just don't expect the same caliber. It's more of the same without the same attention to quality. It's not the best, it's the second best and it shows. However, it is entertaining, if nothing else.
