AMUMBAI: A love storyunlike any other, Manmarziyaan is a romanticdrama that revolves around three primary characters - Vicky Kaushal(Vicky), Taapsee Pannu(Rumi) and Abhishek Bachchan (Robbie). Directed by Anurag Kashyap, the movie presents a classic love triangle, narrated with a fresh perspective where the characters are perpetually oscillating between confusingly complex emotions. Zee Cinema is set to air the cinematic blockbuster ‘Manmarziyaan’ on Saturday, 13th July at 6 pm. 

Vicky Kaushal who plays Vicky Sandhu said,“Manmarziyaan is been one of the most liberating experiences for me as an actor. I believe the character Vicky Sandhu to be my alter ego and to completely surrender to that character and to the world of Anurag Kashyap was one of the most learning experiences for me. It was the first time I was collaborating with Taapsee and Abhishek and had a blast shooting with them.”

Essaying the role of Rumi, Taapsee Pannu said“When Kanika was narrating the script to me, I felt there was no challenge in portraying the character of Rumi. I’m a black or white person in real life, but this character is confused and indecisive. So, I couldn’t relate to her. Then, she said something which was the reason I took up the film. She told me, ‘Had it not been for that patch, it would have been a cakewalk for you.’ That became the selling point for me.”

Commenting on his character - Robbie, Abhishek Bachchan said, “I feel every actor brings a lot of himself or herself to a character and, also takes a lot back. There are several shades of me in Robbie and there are things about Robbie that I would love to emulate.”

Zee Cinema with its new brand philosophy ‘Seene Mein Cinema’ enliven characters like Rumi, Vicky & Robbie, whose jazba to love hard, fuels their ‘live to love, love to live’ spirit! Set-in small-town Amritsar, the plotline follows the life of Rumi (Taapsee Pannu), a wholehearted unapologetic girl who is crazy in love with Vicky (Vicky Kaushal), a typical Punjabi munda. The movie gains momentum when on one occasion Rumi is caught red handed by her family and is pressurized to get married. 

Vicky on the other hand, develops cold feet, and constantly avoids Rumi's request to bring his parents over and ask her hand in marriage. Fed up, Rumi gives up on Vicky and agrees to an arranged marriage. Enters Robbie (Abhishek Bachchan), a warm and genuine man, who effortlessly swoops Rumi off her feet. After a brief courtship, the blooming love birds get married. Things however take a turn when Robbie finds out that Rumi cheats on him with Vicky. Will Rumi leave Robbie for Vicky, or find her way back into Robbie’s heart? 

Capturing the emotions of the film, are the songs by Amit Trivedi. Manmarziyaan’s 14-song music album is rooted in Punjabi music with Dhyaanchand, Halla, Daryaa and Sacchi Mohabbat being the highlights of the film.
