Husband Material (Manmarziyaan) Reviews

July 21, 2020
Manmarziyaan is a film that is likely to sweep you along as it goes down its lazy, loopy path in search of happiness for its endearing heroine. You will her on to settle down, but on her own terms.

Abhishek Bachchan is sweet as paavam-bechara Robbie, though a little dull. Vicky Kaushal nails the externals of his character with great pizzazz, but has little to chew on in terms of who the man really is.
March 11, 2019
Aided by smart writing and affecting performances, the film subverts the nice guy trope and squashes the idea of the one true love.
September 21, 2018
A rollicking if predictable rom com, where all the expected notes are hit up to the guaranteed happy ending.
September 14, 2018
Even as it acknowledges its inspirations, Manmarziyaan strikes out in decidedly different directions.
September 14, 2018
For a film that waxes eloquent about the unpredictability and volatility of love, the end feels like an unnecessary cop-out.
September 14, 2018
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.
September 12, 2018
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.

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?
