Manmarziyaan - Honest Movie Review

Owing to the centre of all the latest excitement and hype, Anurag Kashyap's new romantic comedy-drama finally throws light on the realistic hardships of love stories. It's hard not to expect phenomenal movies when it comes to this director and I can surely say that Manmarziyaan qualifies as one of them.

The story revolves around a fiery and ardent Rumi (Tapsee Pannu) who is stuck between loving two desirable men Vicky (Vicky Kaushal) and Robbie (Abhishek Bachchan) where both of them are amiable to different parts of her puzzling personality. 

Every artist in the movie including the supporting roles with hardly enough screen space are bewitching, mirroring their respective characters accurately and the music by Amit Trivedi makes each situation more intense and solid. The story written by Kanika Dhillon could've used more clarity considering the lengthy second half and the confusing climax.

However, that is completely clouded by Tapsee, Vicky and Abhishek's fascinating portrayals. Extra admiration for Abhishek Bachchan who oozes sensitivity and depth to an otherwise light character and Vicky Kaushal who brings out the passion, innocence and allurement to his role but Tapsee, already being an accomplished actress somehow isn't very surprising in the film. 

Trying his hand at a new genre even with a slightly bumpy script Anurag Kashyap clearly knows how to win the audience and he does with Manmarziyaan as well. Finally, I'd like to say that the film is surely something interesting and unique to ponder over for this September.

My Rating - 3.5/5 | Grade - B+ (A Perfect Weekend Pick!)
