The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel: Movie Review

By: Lakwatsera Lovers

Do you have plans on watching a feel-good movie? Well, if the answer is yes, you should include The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel on your list. We are already entertained with the trailer even though we haven't watched the first part yet.

The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel  is already full with long-term residents, so young proprietor Sonny Kapoor (Dev Patel) and co-manager Muriel Donnelly (Maggie Smith) travels all the way to San Diego to find a company which can invest to their hotel expansion. Aside from Sonny's business deals, he also needs to stay focus on his upcoming wedding to her fiancee, Sunaina (Tina Desai.) Soon, Sonny must find a way on what to prioritize first and weigh if he can do both at the same time. 

Actually, there are several more interesting stories happening around the hotel and its elderly residents. It's quite a mess at first, but as soon as you got the grip of everyone, you'll get hooked with their stories and even with the love triangles. All of this are entertaining because of the talent combined coming from an experienced cast. You have Richard Gere, Judi Dench, Bill Nighy, Magie Smith and Celia Imrie just doing their thing in providing the charm to the whole duration of the film. Dev Patel brings in the humor and did this effortlessly. Other casts like Ronald Pickup, Diana Hardcastle and Tena Desea also did well on their part. It's just a bit 15 minutes long, but nonetheless, they managed to push it through.  

Overall, The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel is pleasant to watch. It is indeed a feel-good film and by simply watching these Hollywood icons cheerfully playing their parts, it is a definite crowd pleaser.

I forgot what happened in the previous film, but the opening sequence re-establishes things nicely.
