After 14 years, Nia Vardalos Nia Vardalos took birth on 24th September of 1962. >> Read More... and John Corbett John Corbett is an American country music singer a >> Read More... pair up again to become the quintessential couple in a crazy Greek environment for the movie “my big fat Greek wedding-2.”

Plot: Toula’s life is a mess with her travel agency closed; she has to depend on the restaurant which belonged to her father, Gus ( Michael Constantine Michael Constantine is a famous actor of the Ameri >> Read More... ). Ian is the principal of the school where their daughter, Paris ( Elena Kampouris Elena Kampouris is an actress known for her roles >> Read More... ) studies. Paris is quite the pampered child, but this does not excite her and most of the time she tries escaping the family. Toula and Ian’s married life is facing turbulence as she does not have time to sort issues out with her husband in the midst of fixing everything else. Meanwhile, the Portakalos family is gearing up for another wedding.

The unusual fact about this wedding is that Gus and Marie are getting married again after spending fifty years together. After all, this time, Gus discovers that their marriage certificate had not been attested by the priest and therefore he intends on getting married again, an idea on which Marie does not easily agree. Finally, once the bride-to-be says yes, the entire eccentric Greek family begins planning a huge wedding complete with a wedding planner and all fancy stuff. The other side of the story sees Toula’s teenage daughter, Paris discovering herself and realizing her desire to go and study in New York.

Paris and her friend, Bennett, who himself belongs to an equally crazy Greek household as Paris’s, attend prom. Prom happens to coincide with the date of the wedding, but Paris promised to be present for the grand reception. All are happy as Gus receives a much –awaited letter from an online ancestry portal confirming him to be a direct descendent of Alexander the great. Though Toula forged this letter, it brings about great happiness to her father. A happy-go-lucky movie, it ends with the entire family seeing off Paris to NYU.

Analysis: Nia Vardalos successfully weaves a funny story which with the able direction of Kirk Jones Kirk Jones took birth on 31st October of 1964. Pro >> Read More... puts up quite a good movie. The sequel as compared to the original movie is a little less interesting. The plot is not focused and tries covering a lot of aspects together which renders the movie an element of chaos. The story brings out the real facts about life like marriage issues, growing- up children and growing- old parents.

Star performances: the female protagonist, Nia Vardalos delivers quite a good performance for quite a confused character in the plot. John Corbett is not as lovable as he was in “my big fat Greek wedding” but still puts up a good show. The best performance is undoubtedly by Andrea Martin Andrea Martin is an American comedian, actress, au >> Read More... as Toula’s aunt Voila, who is most expressive and practically blows life into the story.

What’s there: the story provides good comic moments. The movie is simple, but all the characters try and deliver their best.

What’s not there: the gags are not all that exciting and after a certain time become tiresome and stereotypical. The character of Toula is not very prominent and is caught up in a lot of confusion. The script does not stay focused and goes haywire trying to cover all aspects.

Verdict: The final say on the movie is that though the script is not that great, the movie is not that bad either. It involves the theme that things are bound to change with time, and one should accept this truth of life. A pleasant movie “My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2” will prove to be a happy watch for the audience.
