Manmarziyan review : Taapsee Pannu and Vicky Kaushal does justice to the role

Cast: Taapsee Pannu, Abhishek Bachchan, Vicky Kaushal
Direction: Anurag Kashyap
Rating: 3/5

Anurag Kashyap dedicates his newest film to Amrita Pritam, the precocious poet who herself is known for her unconventional, trailblazing love story.

The Bollywood love triangle – an arrangement that involves the almost impossible task of choosing between passion and stability – makes another notable appearance, this time helmed by a man better known for profanity-laced, bullet-driven shootouts.

For once, Anurag Kashyap steers clear of the dark alleys he frequents in his works and instead forays into a universe of uncertainty, ‘emotional atyachar’ and complicated hearts.

Manmarziyaan is set in small-town Amritsar where Vicky loves Rumi loves Robbie. The who loves whom equation is fluid here, with Taapsee playing the erratic and moody Rumi - the pivot of this tale who oscillates between the two. Rumi symbolises manmarziyaan. 'Mann' and 'marzi' form 'manmarziyaan'. Do what your heart says. Kashyap's heroine does exactly that, and leaves a trail of destruction and heartbreak behind.
