“Marjaavaan” Review: A Failed Attempt At Creating A Massy Entertainer

Mohnish Singh |Nov 16, 2019

“Marjaavaan” stars Sidharth Malhotra, Riteish Deshmukh, Tara Sutaria and Rakul Preet Singh in lead roles. The film is directed by writer-director Milap Zaveri.

Marjaavaan boasts of a stellar cast which includes the likes of Sidharth Malhotra, Riteish Deshmukh, Tara Sutaria and Rakul Preet Singh. The film is a love story and has soulful music. One of its songs, Tum Hi Ana, has already become chartbuster. The audience also loved the trailer of the film when it released, but how is the film in its entirety? Let us find out.

Story: Based in Mumbai, Raghu (Sidharth Malhotra) is a gangster with no family of his own. He was found in a gutter when gang lord (Nasser) adopted him and raised him to be his right hand. Vishnu (Riteish Deshmukh) is the dwarf son of the gang lord, who does not like Raghu at all because he feels his father loves Raghu more than him. Meanwhile, Zoya (Tata Sutaria) comes in the life of Raghu and nautch girl Aarzoo (Rakul Preet Singh), who loves him to death, sees him drifting apart. Fate brings them all to a point where Sidharth has to make a tough call which changes his life forever. What happens next forms the crux of the story.

Critical Analysis: Marjaavaan reunites Sidharth Malhotra and Riteish Deshmukh after five years. The duo was last seen together in the 2014 musical hit Ek Villain. Though Marjaavaan is a love story, it is the drama featuring Sidharth and Riteish that turns out to be the best part of the film. Whenever the two actors come face to face with each other, they just set the screen on fire. Both the actors have done good job. Having said that, they failed to create the magic of their previous outing Ek Villain. You can blame it to weak writing.

Tara Sutaria, who made her silver screen debut with Student of the Year 2 (2019), plays her part convincingly. She plays a mute girl in the film. But she successfully conveys a lot through her eyes and expressions. Rakul Preet Singh looks perfect in the role of a nautch girl. Despite presence of so many actors, she stands out in the film.

Final Verdict: Marjaavaan is not a film for every film enthusiast. It basically caters to the single screen audience in tier 2 and tier 3 cities. So, if you want to transport yourself to the era of the 80s and the 90s, you can give Marjaavaan a shot. I am going with 2.5 stars.
