Love stories can never go out of fashion. When it’s someone like Anurag Kashyap, known for making dark, edgy films like Dev D and Gangs Of Wasseypur out there attempting to show his ideology of love, you obviously tend to get all the more intrigued. His latest directorial Manmarziyaan has been making the right noises from the time it was announced. Here are 5 reasons that make this movie a must watch:
Anurag Kashyap Returns With an Intense Drama
It’s never the typical hero-heroine romance when Anurag Kashyap is at the helm. The last time this maverick directed a love story was in 2009. It was Dev D, a spin of the classic legend of Devdas that left us speechless. It has been 9 years from then. With Manmarziyaan, Anurag Kashyap is coming up with the theme of simple love between complicated people. While love stories usually talk about perfection, Manmarziyaan talks about the flaws, the raw and real emotions.
Vicky Kaushal as The Flag Bearer of Fyaar
This year belongs to Vicky Kaushal who has delivered spectacular performances in Raazi and Sanju playing characters that will be etched in our memories for a long time. He plays the character of Vicky, the quintessential Punjabi brat who wants to become a DJ. Vicky redefines the concept of love with his unique style- FYAAR. He is reckless, irrational and passionate lover whose indecisiveness is something that is so relatable in today’s world of modern dating. Manmarziyaan has all the elements in the right place that will lead to his hat trick of blockbuster movies this year.
Amit Trivedi’s Magical Music
A musical at the core, Manmarziyaan marks the reunion of Anurag Kashyap with music composer Amit Trivedi. The album of Manmarziyaan comprises of 15 spectacular songs, each distinctive from the other. The entire album has been created over a span of two years. All the tracks are a heady mix of desi beats and contemporary rhythm. Each song is totally worth a listen and leaves a lasting impact on you. The music and lyrics are exceptional. Amit, who received a National Award for Dev D has delivered another benchmark album with Manmarziyaan.
Abhishek Bachchan’s Much Awaited Comeback
There is no doubt about the fact that Abhishek Bachchan is one of the most versatile actors we have in Bollywood. He is returning to the big screen after a gap of two years. He has delivered some impeccable performances in Guru, Dus, Dhoom, Dostana and Yuva. We want to see more of him, always! His stellar presence adds so much to the Manmarziyaan cast. He certainly is a big reason to watch this love triangle.
An Unusual Love Triangle
Manmarziyaan speaks volumes about modern-day relationships and love-related complexities through its three main characters- Vicky, Rumi and Robbie. Vicky is madly in love with Rumi, but is not ready for marriage. Then enters Robbie who marries Rumi and begins the complicated love triangle. Torn between her first love and marriage, Rumi finds it hard to decided who to choose. With characters constantly oscillating between confusion and complex emotions, Manmarziyaan presents a fresh take at romance and relationships.
