The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel (PG)

Directed by John Madden
Starring Maggie Smith, Judi Dench, Bill Nighy, Dev Patel, Richard Gere, Tamsin Greig

The follow up to The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel is more of the same - classy actors, beautiful shots of India, gentle comedy and drama. It is undemanding but enjoyable stuff. Richard Gere and Tamsin Greig join the fun as Dev Patel, Maggie Smith, Judi Dench and co are looking to expand their hotel aimed at the older clientele. However, Dev is distracted by his upcoming wedding and the return of a rival for his business.
Very pretty scenes of India - did the tourist board contribute? But this is also a film with charm and warmth. Not groundbreaking but decent entertainment. 7/10
