The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel set to be one of the best sequels to date
The sequel to the award-winning Best Exotic Marigold Hotel hits UK cinemas on February 27.
An all-star cast, which includes Dev Patel, Maggie Smith, Judy Dench and Bill Nighy, return to the retirement hotel in India where hotelier Sonny (Patel) now dreams of expansion.
The British expats are stirred out of their comfortable “just-so” dispositions, when they are joined by a suave and handsome American named Guy (Richard Gere). Inadvertently, his presence ruffles more than a few feathers, and sends blood rushing to the cheeks of the ladies, not least those of Celia Imrie; infatuated at first sight.
Also returning are writer Ol Parker and director John Madden (Shakespeare in Love), who helped make the first film such a success.
With probably the (second) best title for a sequel ever conceived, and such a strong cast, it’s surely worth a punt.
The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel is in cinemas from February 27.
