Marjaavaan Review

Raghu (Sidharth Malhotra) works for Anna (Nassar) who has a dwarf son Vishnu (Riteish Deshmukh). Raghu is loyal to Anna & Vishnu hates him because he isn’t daddy’s favourite. Enters Zoya (Tara Sutaria) who cannot speak but no one can stay silent in a Milap Zaveri film, even she gets to stay dialogues. Zoya, from Kashmir, is in a quest to search for kids who can sing in Mumbai’s slum area.

As Raghu helps Zoya find those kids, he forgets he’s already in a relationship Aarzoo (Rakul Preet Singh). Few item songs later, as we’ve seen in the trailer, Vishnu kills Zoya but he has his reasons. So, now Raghu hates Vishnu as much as Vishnu hates him & then starts the revenge.

Sidharth Malhotra is fine as Raghu, because of the theme of the film he goes overboard at times. Riteish Deshmukh is one of those exceptions because he enjoys whatever he does. He tries to convince you that he’ll unabashedly be Vishnu and you’ll have to adjust your mood according to him. He is very good at whatever he was offered. Tara Sutaria is an eternal beauty stuck in the wrong film. She manages to express herself very well but everything goes in vain because of the script.

Masala formula films are dying with today’s evolved audiences and this attempt is a genuine one made in the wrong time.

Rating: 5/10
