Another irresistible swirl of heart-warming life lessons, funny valentines and intoxicating local Indian colour, this captivating sequel is not second best at all, more a worthy companion piece to the 2011 crowd-pleaser. Here, co-manager Dev Patel's dreams of expansion get in the way of his marriage plans while the cream of British acting aristocracy (Bill Nighy, Maggie Smith, Judi Dench) navigate their own romantic complications with effortless chemistry. Richard Gere and Tamsin Greig check in to the retirement hotel as possible spies for the US financiers Patel needs to fund his franchise, adding their own brand of infectious charm to the winning formula, but returning director John Madden and writer Ol Parker make sure not to rock the mature fairy tale boat. The touching ending is a fitting conclusion to another pleasure-filled journey populated by a wonderful ensemble of what feel like old friends.
With the original Best Exotic Marigold Hotel a roaring success, owner Sonny decides the time is right to expand his business empire. But to do so, he and the rest of the residents must pull out all the stops to impress a potential investor's inspector - a task that proves to be easier said than done. Comedy drama sequel, with Dev Patel, Maggie Smith, Judi Dench and Richard Gere.
