From the colorful trailer of ‘Manmarziyaan’, it is abruptly understood that Anurag Kashyap and writing of Kanika Dhillon, has made great confusions whether Taapsee will marry Vicky or Abhishek. Is it a confusing love or in depth with understanding? ‘Pyaar’ or only ‘Fyaar’? But only one thing is understood that Amit Trivedi’s songs are in strong romantic numbers and will definitely makes link to the story.
The story starts with Vicky (Vicky Kaushal as a cool Punjabi DJ) jumping onto the terrace of Rumi’s (Taapsee Pannu as a state level hockey player and a sports material shop owner) house and makes out ‘Fyaar’ with her. Knowing about this meet up in their home, the family members put up stress on Rumi to get married soon with a responsible guy. On the other hand, Rumi wanted Vicky to come to her home and discuss with her family about marrying her. Vicky who has no idea about how to live a responsible life with her, denies to come up to her family and to do the marriage proposal. In spite of giving more chances by eloping with Vicky and waiting for him even on the day before her marriage, Vicky leaves her which ends up Rumi to get married with a London return banker, Robbie (Abhishek Bachchan).
Robbie, knowing all about Rumi’s relationship with Vicky, maturely understands her and gives her options to choose between him and Vicky even after marriage. Rumi, who is between the thoughts of her first love with Vicky and having a responsible person (Robbie) to care her, has no idea how to choose one. Robbie comes to know about Rumi’s unknown meet ups with Vicky, sneaks into a discussion between Rumi and Vicky with the context, “will you close your eyes and think about me when you sleep with him or open your eyes and think about him?”. Do you think a husband can accept this debate ending with his wife’s silence for the question developed? Robbie breaks the marriage which ends up with a beautiful climax. Will Rumi start living with Vicky? Will Vicky take care of her with a good job? Or will Robbie and Rumi join together understanding each other? Will Rumi understand Robbie to be a ‘Manmarziyaan’?
Beautiful romance with colorful locations and props, having cool colors and colorful shades for everyone in song visuals, red hair color of Taapsee, blue spike color of Vicky and wearing Punjabi ethnic Turban after the London return are more than enough to make understand about the characters and screenplay of the movie. Can I director make viewers understand the entire story with dancing and visuals of ‘Twins’ roaming around? Anurag does it throughout the movie by adding up more colors in ‘Manmarziyaan’. Dialogues with no background music have beautified more flavors to this romantic drama. Last but not the least, Amit Trivedi’s songs has been the supportive pillar to feel the depth of romance and all the three lead perspectives in this movie.
On the whole,
‘Manmarziyaan’ is a new age ‘Mouna Ragam’ conveying the proper meaning of love. It is loved and more loved if people face hard and serious relationships before marriage. Like Abhishek asks Taapsee “Pyaar karti ha mujse?”, and as Taapsee answers to it. ‘Ho Jaayega Pyaar’ if you watch ‘Manmarziyaan’.
