• Director John Madden offers another affectionate portrait of ageing and second chances in this sentimental but always charming comedy that deserves a watch if only for its terrific A-list cast. It’s the kind of film you’ll want to take your mum to.

    As per the film, the question is not about how many new lives we can have. Rather, it is whether ‘do we possess the courage to cross the boundaries?’

    The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel is not as tight the previous version, but it’s certainly a good film to watch this weekend.

    This is a fun story with as many layers as a Jaipuri pagdi. The acting is such fun – the film features much of the cream from the high tea of British drama – that you appreciate characters, even if you didn’t check into the first Hotel.

    When it comes to an enjoyable time at the cinemas, The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel is second to none.

  • Most of the film is crowd pleasing to the core, and when the talent on display is so effortless in entertaining you, it’s hard to walk away from the film with any negative emotion. It’s the first feel-good movie of the year, and that’s always a good thing.
