Finally a realistic love story
kumartanya-2706518 September 2018
The movie is very realistic unlike the usual Bollywood love stories. It portrays the confusion the characters are going through so well. Acting is just brilliant, specially Vicky Kaushal. Songs are beautiful. People are saying that the 2nd half is boring but it's supposed to be laid back to show the connect of the two characters. It's a movie which is definitely not made for people who just want to laugh n watch unreasonable love stories and are extremely close minded. If you have good taste in movies you will love it. Much better than the so called classic love stories like dil wale. The only drawback was the excessive use of the word fyaar. Rest beautiful.

Awesome movie, completely new setting to play with and anurag plays it out like a pro.. Abhishek was awesome with his subtle good boy act, and Vicky kaushal and tapsee did the rest.bgm and score gives it the extra 2 🌟 to make it 10/10

Story of Dev D told from a woman perspective, masterfully crafted.
ameerabbas10 February 2019
This one is another gem from Anurag. It's one of my favourite films that came out in 2018. This film feels like reading a book. Such a delite to see detailed characterisation for even the side characters in the story. But, unfortunately this is a film ahead of its time for Indian audience.

For those who have loved someone...
mjkool17 September 2018
For me a good love-story-movie is the one which makes you fall in love again, either be it with your family or with your wife or girlfriend or even an ex. Manmarziyaan did that. It emphasizes the fact that, if something like love is meant to be yours, it will BE yours, you don't need to grab or hold it tight. This is a movie for those who have loved someone with all their heart and I think people in arranged marriage will relate more to the story. It beautifully shows the process of how two people agreeing to do arranged marriage get to know each other, how they become friends first and then lovers.

Although the basis of the story can be framed as a love triangle, direction/screenplay of the story bring the novelty, kudos to Anurag and Kanika for that! The movie needs to be watched for the intensity of the emotions of main characters and for the pitch-perfect use of music. Abhishek Bachchan speaks a volume through his eyes and owns the movie. Tapsee fits the role effortlessly and Vicky Kaushal impresses with his 100% effort as usual.

More of a psychological romance.
jaypatel7-165-78331515 September 2018
This isn't a linear romantic movie! There are lots of ups and downs in emotions of characters and those aren't shown through words or special expressions!(especially in Abhishek's case) it's all in head.

Too much of music spoilt it a bit for me!

At the end of the movie, you'll know the story of characters from childhood, and the reasons for their decisions!! And that made it beautiful and different from regular romance.

Sheer brilliance from Anurag Kashyap "2.0"
ariancage14 September 2018
What a great movie!!!! Sheer amazing brilliance from a new incarnation of our Anurag Kashyap. Well crafted deep characterisation which morons call indulgence. The performances are astounding and everyone hail the great lead trio. Amazing movie!! THE Music deserves a special mention!

Music is the lead.
varshabhushan15 September 2018
Taapsee, Vicky, AB, and Amit Trivedi are the soul of this film. Kashyap could have cut it short by half an hour. Still it's definitely a must watch. People who are fed on masala Bollywood love stories will never like this movie. Mind you! as you can see from the reviews. Hence my small try to save it. Hence extra 2 points. 10/10

Spineless characters
phani-annangi2 August 2019
Spineless characters play hockey for 2 hours with their heads down and mindlessly shuffling around ..very apt to the title..the best ending could have been all three staying single !

Slow saga of a confused girl
baruaritesh13 September 2018
Warning: Spoilers
The movie has the right intention but is extremely slow. Screenplay screeches to a halt in the second half.

Amit Trivedi's music is the only saving grace.

In a nutshell, this is a story about a confused, sex hungry Rumi, who bounces between the 2 leads in the movie.

You can give this is a miss!

Another brilliant movie by Anurag Kashyap
srastogi-9093515 September 2018
Another great movie from Anurag Kashyap, probably better than his earlier love triangle Dev D. Kudos to Kanika Dhillon for the turns and twist in story, very different to a typical Bollywood love story. Equally brilliant and well supporting music by Amit Trivedi, may not be his best Lutera. Well suited for movie, story and the location Punjab, though missed his voice this time. Loved it.

Great first half but dud second half
sharmakaran-6702314 September 2018
Starts well, keeps you engaged. But post intermission, it just gets super repetitive. I don't know why anurag kashyap didn't cut the movie much earlier at time of review. This easily could have been shorter by half hour.

But watchable overall.

Horrible movie
reemarasheed20 December 2018
Warning: Spoilers
Such a waste of time. I cant believe that Anurag Kashyap can make a movie like this. I wonder what he is trying to imply here. Here we have a girl who has no moral values nor family values. She runs between her husband and boyfriemd and back to her husband who is completely spineless. And the boyfriend who is irresponsible and as confused as the girl and her husband. If you think this movie is on new generation take on love and relationship iam sorry you are highly mistaken. Movies like this is completely misguiding especially to the younger generation.

Beautiful and well directed
chiranjeev-arora12 September 2018
Thoroughly enjoyed the film.

Taapsee was just amazing. She stole the show. Abhishek Bachchan - Welcome back. Sardar look suits him. Vicky Kaushal - What an actor. Sukhi look ... Haha..

First has a lot good comedy. Only if you understand a bit of Punjabi. Second half is equally fun but with more drama and emotional Scenes.

Must watch.

Pure waste of time
sunilps16 September 2018
The movie is about a girl who is sex hungry. She is confused about sex and love and chooses to have more sex illustioning it to be first love. There is absolutely no stuff in the storyline and abhishek seems to be totally wasted. Cannot believe i wasted my time watching this crap. Please skip this movie. Even Anuraj kashap would not sit and watch the movie through without being drunk.

Anurag Kashyap- a litlle hit and a little miss this time
anupkranal15 September 2018
Human emotions and actions are complex and for years Bollywood tried to show it in simple ways which Indian audience can comprehend easily. Especially this is true when we are talking about love and passion. Manmarziyan has tried to change it a little bit but how successfully the audience will decide. Anurag Kashyap has been giving off late that he now wants to make a love story, a glimpse of that we can see in Mukkabaaz . Now he comes with its first full fledged Love story at last in its latest offering Manmarziyan. In Netflix's Lust story Anurag has showcased the complex nature of a Lady when it comes to handling love affairs and relationship. In Manmarziyan, Anurag Kashyap has passed this Baton to Tapsee Pannu from Radhika Apte. Manmarziyaan has got everything from Passion, anger, disappointment in love. But the strongest point as always been in Anurag Kashyap's movie is that how well he gets out the best off from his actors. We are talking of Tapsee Pannu which is a revelation and takes the character of Rumi to next level. The energy level of Tapsee and Vicky Kausal was essential to what the film has called has Fyaar and not Pyaar. Abhishek Bachhan has done what he has good at, maintain a silent but effective personality which can be compared to Ajay Devgan's character in Hum Dil de chuke Sanam. But audience should not fall into a trap that it belongs to the genre which Hum Dil de chuke Sanam and Woh Saat din were. This one is very complex and dive deep into the Human Psyche of Love, wants and obsession. Characters Vicky Kausal portrayed a character who is obsessed with Rumi(Tapsee)and doesn't know anything else apart from loving her. While Rumi shares the same obsession, she is also a bit logical towards her approach to Love. Robbie played by Abhishek Bachhan played a silent caring guy who tries to portray himself that he is a man of morals and sacrifice for other's happiness but doesn't hesitate to manipulate people to get Rumi. Screenplay and Story Writer,Kanika Dhillon who for the first time has written a Love story (previously being RA One)is good in parts. Her screenplay slacks more than often and can be considered as the biggest reason ,why 156 minutes seemed too long for the film. She was on the money in the first half but her screenplay lost the grip in the second half only to regain in the last 30 minutes of the film. Direction It is more often than not Anurag Kashyap's movie is called director's movie but I would say that this movie belong to its actors specially Tapsee Pannu and Vicky Kausal. Anurag Kashyap does exceptionally well in the first half when he showed the electrifying chemistry between Rumi and Vicky. But he was nowhere close to his best while Love triangle started to take shape in the second half. Although very well intentioned but Anurag failed to communicate properly the conflicts going inside Rumi's mind and her decision that followed. Music It is no denial of the fact that Amit Trivedi is the most talented music director in the industry. His soundtrack is excellent and the songs are woven so beautifully in the movie that they never looked out of place and they even enhanced the effectiveness of the scenes. Daryaa and Dhayanchand are the highlights of the movie and they are used very effectively by Anurag. But the sad part is that they were not used properly during promotions and this is evident that having such good songs , none of them were chartbusters. Most of the audience will discover its great music only when they watch the movie.

What is good

Performances of lead cast The soundtrack and music The chemistry between Tapsee and Vicky Kausal The new complex treatment to Bollywood old age love triangle The authentic settings used in the movie

What is not so Good

The run time of 156 mins, the film could have easily reduced by 15 minutes or so The editing, particularly in first 30 minutes of the second half The director's lack of experience in delivering in genre of romance and love.

One of the worst movie I have ever watched
pankajv-5188716 September 2018
Utterly confused movie from beginning to end. What does Anurag wants to show.. Reality or a new generation or reality of lossers, or wants to pass message for society. Though acting is good but movie falls flat without a story line and a plot which has no relavance. Complete waste of money and time. 2 starts given for acting of actress...
