The relentless drama follows minute by minute in the lives of the volatile lead couple, caught in an unhinged love, will certainly make you feel relieved about your staid existence though.
The movie emphasizes on Rumi (TaapseePannu) and Vicky (Vicky Kaushal), the couple in love which can’t resist the bedroom. On being caught red handed by the family of Rumi, there builds up a pressure of getting married. On this, Vicky begins to have cold feet and starts avoiding Rumi and her request of talking to his family about their marriage. Eventually, Rumi agrees to an arranged marriages after giving up on Vicky. This is when the proverbial love triangle forms on the entry of Robbie (Abhishek Bachchan).
Talking about Anurag Kashyap’s Manmarziyaan, his maturity of talking about love and relationships is arguably refreshing. The Amritsar-born script writer, Kanika Dhillon wrote this script, fully soaked in Amritsari ghee, traversing the mohallas, demonstrating the real world of confused young generation with parents having less influence over them finding their partners. There was a clear glimpse of young-blood infatuation and madness, which is though short lived – but was certainly long enough to continue till the end of the movie.
Kaushal playing the ‘bad boy’ and Abhishek Bachchan as a patient and well- meaning good boy can give you a gist. Pannu was presented as their object of affection. Bachchan puts “Atom bomb” in the film for Pannu, and this is exactly the word which can describe her feisty character in the movie. Her stunning, viscerally moving performance has no other words to praise.
Together the three actors added incredible zest and energy to the story, compelling the audience to look at the world with the three different perspective, and probably even you can find yourself in any one of them. Though no sides taken, but Kaushal’s character was the best reflection of the current lost and transient generation, being engaged in “complicated” relationship, which is even quite close to a Kashyap character.
Speaking of which, let’s find out how this full-blown romance can be considered different from other Kashyap movies? Just like all other Bollywood movies, it is also divided into pre and post-interval halves but the good point is both the halves were completely balanced in the sense of binding the interest of the audience. With this pure cinematic delight, the music of Amit Trivedi also elevated the emotions in the film to a large degree. Even most of the songs fleshed out the feelings of the characters in a quite great way. This new-age love story also holds some glittering charm of old-school love saga, which actually makes this romantic movie quite interesting. For millennial, the story can be a little too deep but despite of that Marmarziyaan can be undoubtedly listed among the must-watch romantic movie of 2018.
