The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel -- a sequel not to be missed
Film review by Bob Walker
Filming commenced in Jaipur, India
in January 2014 of this sequel to the
sleeper hit British comedy/drama
of 2012 The Best Exotic Marigold
With the exception of Tom Wilkinson
the bulk of the great cast remains
intact. Richard Gere, Tamsin Greig
and David Strathairn are newcomers
to the sequel. With the same
director (John Madden) and writer
as in the original film the hilarious
one-liners just keep on coming.
Once again, Dev Patel, Judi
Dench, Maggie Smith, Bill Nighy,
Penelope Wilton, Celia Imrie and
Ronald Pickup deliver very strong
performances. Richard Gere
provides romantic interest.
The second hotel is the expansionist
dream of Sonny Kapoor (Dev Patel)
and it's making more demands
on his time than he has available
considering his imminent marriage
to the love of his life Sunaina (Tena
Desae). He has his eyes on the
property now that his first venture
has only a single remaining vacancy
posing a rooming predicament for
two fresh arrivals, Guy (Richard
Gere) and Lavinia (Tamsin Greig).
Evelyn (Judi Dench) and Douglas
(Bill Nighy) have now joined
the Jaipur work force and are
wondering where their regular
dates for pancakes will lead them
while Norman (Ronald Pickup) is
negotiating the tricky waters of an
Madge (Celia Imrie) juggles two
eligible and very wealthy suitors.
Perhaps the only one who knows
the answers is newly installed co -
manager Muriel (Maggie Smith), the
keeper of everyone's secrets.
