Anurag Kashyap’s Mannmarziya has been in the news for the longest time and finally, the trailer of the film has been released. The film stars Abhishek Bachchan, Taapsee Pannu, and Vicky Kaushal. It also marks junior Bachchan’s comeback to Bollywood after two years. The trio will be sharing the screen for the first time.
Produced by Anand L Rai, the film’s trailer is high on emotion, passion, and love. The trailer is a treat to our eyes which beautifully revolves around the phrase love isn’t complicated, people are.
Manmarziyan is a love story set in Punjab and will see Abhishek play the quintessential Sikh lad, Robbie, wearing a turban. His character speaks volumes with the depth in his eyes and it tugs your heart like no one else. Taapsee plays the perfect Punjabi kudi, a fierce Rumi, who seems to be head over heels in love with Vicky Kaushal’s character. Vicky plays the perfect lover boy, a roadside Punjabi Romeo, who shrugs off the responsibility to be with Taapsee and be with his love until it’s too late.
While Abhishek’s and Taapsee’s off-screen camaraderie translate well onscreen, Vicky’-Taapsee’ chemistry is sizzling, raw and electic.
The trailer starts with Rumi (Taapsee) and Vicky’s (Vicky Kaushal) romance and how they plan on running away from their families and getting married. But Vicky being a typical roadside Romeo doesn’t take this seriously and soon after we see Robbie (Abhishek) enter the picture as Rumi’s potential groom. Vicky’s irresponsibility takes Rumi away from him and while Rumi is still in love with Vicky, she married Robbie. This is when all the complication starts. The trailer leaves the audience stunned and confused about who will Rumi end up with in the end.
Kudos to Anurag Kashyap for this whacky love story set in the Heartlands of India with foot-tapping and soulful music, Punjabi verses and an engaging story by Kanika Dhillon.
The film has been shot in real locations of Punjab and Delhi and is slated to release on September 14, 2018.
