Movie Review:- Manmarziyaan: Kashyap's version of Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam! ***½

1687th BLOG POST -->>

Anurag Kashyap’s art of making movies is very distinct and if you have seen his works before, you enjoy watching his next movie even more. Even though each movie of his is an individual movie yet all his movies seem to be a series where you need to go through all his work to understand his latest flick. When you will watch his latest work- “Manmarziyaan”, you will be surprised to see the transformation in the style of movie-making that Kashyap has gone through to make a commercial movie which can be accepted by most of the masses. Yet I believe that this movie is very modern and can be accepted by only few from the current generation. There is rarely a chance that previous generation will accept this overdosed romance and frequent mood-shifts of the characters.

First, I would like to mention the characters in the movie. Each one of them is distinct from each other which gives the writers to play around with them as much as they can. The character of Rumi played by Taapsee Pannu is basically the protagonist who faces two men at the same time in her life and gets confused with which one should she consider marriage with. In this confusion, she takes decisions which affects her, these men and her family members. The character of Vicky played by one of the best actors we have in our new set of performers in Bollywood- Vicky Kaushal is a man who earns little bit through his DJ work otherwise only keeps following and chasing Rumi for sex. He cannot see his life beyond Rumi and gets worked up every time he finds her ignoring him. The character of Robbie played by Abhishek Bachchan who is making comeback with this very movie is a man who is too good to be considered real and ensures that everyone is happy with him. He finds it tough to handle Rumi considering her infatuation with Vicky. Making a movie with such characters is fun and thus, audience also enters the theatre with lot of expectations.

Talking about the movie now, the first half is wonderful with lot of one-liners and funny moment with special romantic segments between Vicky and Taapsee. The dialogues are powerful. The second half is more about Abhishek and Taapsee’s chemistry and the intervention of Vicky in their life which never lets anyone settle down completely. The music, songs and background score make the experience of watching this movie joyful and passionate. Amit Trivedi’s kind of music was very necessary for showcasing and doing justice with the kind of passionate and intense romance being shown. Few scenes are very cinematic where the characters play with dialogues and facial expressions. The climax is also nicely handled and looks convincing for such a confused love story.

Talking about the drawbacks in the end, the 2nd half is quite stretched which could have surely edited by 15-20 minutes. There is too much of Rumi in the movie. The screen could have been equally divided among all the three characters. Being set in a rural background, there are few scenes which could not be handled by the parents but still they consider it without even raising their eyebrows. Otherwise, the movie is entertaining and, one-time watch. I give the movie 3.5 stars out of 5.
