A rollicking if predictable rom com, where all the expected notes are hit up to the guaranteed happy ending.
It's difficult to recall the last movie husband who evinced such gentlemanly self-restraint when it came to actually consummating his union to a reluctant partner. Kent Smith in Val Lewton's "Cat People," maybe?
Even as it acknowledges its inspirations, Manmarziyaan strikes out in decidedly different directions.
For a film that waxes eloquent about the unpredictability and volatility of love, the end feels like an unnecessary cop-out.
It is ultimately a disappointment not because of its craft, but because of predictability, self-indulgent pace and its irritating attempt to be both a light crowd-pleaser with a cutesy ending as well as an impassioned, volatile romance.
Like love, this film is messy and flawed and glorious. You have to sign up for all of it.
Put a ring on Manmarziyaan, you won't regret that choice.
The performances by Taapsee, Vicky and Abhishek are special, to say the least.
It's Abhishek Bachchan's Robbie that is by far Manmarziyaan's most interesting character. He isn't your usual 'third wheel;' there are shades of grey lodged deep within his magnanimous personality.
Shot well by Sylvester Fonseca and edited well by Aarti Bajaj, the film scores on technical fronts as well. Summing up, Anurag has made a Silsila for the Tinder generation.
