The sequel to a 2012 surprise hit The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel is all about Sonny Kapoor (Dev Patel) and his new assistant manager Muriel Donnelly (Maggie Smith), who travel to San Diego, California to propose a plan to hotel magnate Ty Burley (David Strathairn) for buying and opening a second hotel in India as a companion to the Best Exotic Marigold Hotel.
Ty Burley looks at the proposal and states that he would send in his guy to inspect the heritage hotel.
Back in India, Guy Chambers (Richard Gere) walks into the hotel. Now they think he is an undercover hotel inspector, while he states that he is a retired businessman looking to write a book.
Muriel Donnelly, does a great job in keeping all the guests in the Exotic Marigold Hotel happy. In all of this we have Sunaina (Tena Desae), Sonny Kapoor’s fiancee, Sunny’s mother (Lilette Dubey) and Kushal (Shazad Latif), admirer of Sunaina.
Sonny has a choice to partner with Kushal and expand his hotel, but the problem is, he cannot stand him even one bit and naturally so.
What follows is Sonny’s struggle to make his dream come true and a fairy tale end.
The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel has the wit and humour that was very much a part of the girl film. The dialogues of Sonny are funny and he does full justice to the. In fact the entire star cast of the film is a treat to watch.
Screenwriter Oliver Parker and director John Madden have done full justice to the sequel as the film has some beautiful moments.
The only thing that did not like in the film was the fact that Sonny is ok pimping his mother to achieve his goals.
The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel is a must watch.
