I agree with others - Second Best is a descriptive title.

The original was good. The "Second Best" - forget it. Too much time wasted in Bollywood dance scenes. Sonny putting up with Sunaina's antics was disgusting. Her prima-donna, shove my ex-boyfriend in my future husband's face, attitude is something no one entering marriage should have to put up with. Of course, I'm old fashioned about marriage, believing that couples should always strive to support and build each other up.

Too goody and fake formula

With a top cast, the whole thing was charming but oh so formula and goody. I lost interest in the characters mid-way and could not go back. The subject matter seemed so artificially pumping up India for old people. I couldn't imagine any of these people genuinely interested in living in India.

Checking in again

The sequel lacks the charm of The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, with a plot that seems to be cobbled up together like it is a greatest hits package and Sonny (Dev Patel) the wide eyed hotel entrepreneur being even more irritating. Luckily Jaipur is picture pretty, the British pensioners from the first movie are still alive and joined by others. The main interest is between Douglas (Bill Nighy) who is a local tour guide and his blossoming relationship with Evelyn (Judi Dench) who works as fabric buyer. Things threaten to take a turn for the worse when Douglas's bitter wife turns up and asks for a divorce. Muriel (Maggie Smith) is now the co manager of the hotel and she and Sonny are looking for investors for The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel. Sonny also has his wedding to prepare for and a rival who purchases the property he is interested in. Even worse, a writer arrives at the hotel Guy Chambers (Richard Gere) who Sonny is convinced is the hotel inspector sent from the USA, Chambers takes an unhealthy interest in his mother. The film was just a bit too long and lacked the resonance and emotion of the first film. At least it ends on a Bollywood note.
