Second best
This film tells the story of a group of senior citizens from the Western world settling in a hotel in India.

"The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel" us exactly what the title is. It's second best compared to the first one. The first one had a cohesive story about a group of individuals finding themselves and their happiness. This time around, the story concentrates on the hotel owner's marriage and hotel expansion, and much less about the residents. Even when they tell stories about the residents, it's not as engaging and touching as it could be. I don't find myself caring for the characters at all. It's quite a disappointment for me.
