  • Better than the first one

    A rich and vibrant love story on multiple levels…fantastic…A joy to watch..great cast! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
  • Dull and disappointing

    By Streetworker01
    This sequel is a pale shadow of its lovely predecessor. Everything that made the first film so memorable, especially its charm, is lacking here. This group of actors will always be a joy to watch, but they are the only highlight. They do what they can, but the flat, meandering script is an uphill struggle even for Judi and Maggie. A huge let down, alas.
  • Enjoyed.

    I enjoyed the film for what it was… warm, fun, gentle very colourful with great dance music and much loved actors. It left me feeling good at the end. I enjoyed it every bit as the first one. No need to‘rubbish’ something because it is not to your liking.
  • Great Cast ! Poor story line !!

    By Ceroc13
    A wealth of great characters lacking any star appeal or direction and that's it problem. An over acted animated lead role through this supposedly warm and comfortable film lost its way- not even Richard Gere could save this film.! And that's a shame because this film seem to center on negative roles rather than skilfully develop the eccentric and endearing scenes that we have come to love from the first film and its cast.
  • Loved It

    By BoldNBright
    A good feel movie as good as the first. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Wish there were a lot more films like this it really lifts you up and makes you smile.

    A really "warm" feeling film!! Love the Indian music and dances Brilliant!!!
  • Poor meandering storyline

    By EllieSp8
    This sequel was really poor, a meandering storyline, the hotel proprietor acted in an thoroughly disagreeable way and all characters were very one dimensional. There was little to like about this film.
  • Second Best

    By Poacher1991
    Pointless and definitely second best
  • Very difficult to concentrate...

    By Marrow100
    ...because this film has serious problems with its sound. I'm watching this through a Sony surround system that no other film seems to have a problem with, except the first Marigold Hotel. If it's the same sound engineer on both these films, they need firing. It's almost impossible to hear the voices above the music and/or folio in many many areas.
  • Watched it and loved it.

    I had a really good time watching this. This is what a films are for right? Some great one liners, lovely performances and Richard Gere! I got to the end and had that feeling you get from good films.
