The day Marajaavan trailer released, it was compared directly with Ek Villain, a super hit film of 2014. However, the flick is not that impressive.
Yes, the dialogues in the film aren't as clap or whistle-worthy as one would've thought from the epic trailer of it. Even the first half of the film in specific is nothing worth talking about. Neither the romance between Raghu and Zoya worked well, nor the death of Zoya leaves any impact on the viewers' psyche.
This time Marjaavan has proved that it is not everyone’s cup of tea to create something on the celluloid that will make the audience cheer, whistle, and clap.
If we talk about the plot, the movie is all about a Don named Anna (Nassar), who has a foster son Raghu (Sidharth Malhotra). Raghu does all his dirty work almost entire life. The twist enters when the closeness of Anna with Raghu doesn't sit well to Vishnu (Riteish Deshmukh), who is a real son of Anna but is vertically challenged. Soon we can see Vishnu plans to eliminate Raghu. But Raghu’s life changes more when Zoya enters in his life.
Well, we are not denying the fact that the story of the film is not fine, yes it is fine and the screenplay is okay too, but still it is just the execution by Milap that doesn't work best for the most of the part and also the dialogues that should've been film's strength.
Yet, due to the presence of its lead stars, background score, the world it has created in the film, the execution of some fight scenes, and hero-worshipping, Marjaavaan somehow entertains too.
And, if we talk about the performances, all the actors are exaggerating at equal levels. Riteish Deshmukh is the best of the lot; still, he fails to exude the fear that was required as his character is one-note and underwritten.
However, Sidharth Malhotra has what it takes to be the new-age mass hero. But somehow, this was not the right film, and it does not give him that opportunity. He carries the aura of a mass hero and is earnest in his role.
Tara Sutaria, who is a mute girl, looks good but is annoying as Zoya. As her character spends a major part of the screen time crying, she should learn how to cry on screen. On the other hand, Rakul Preet Singh is also wasted here in terms of performance.
Besides all, Nassar is fine as Anna, among the supporting cast.
Talking about the songs, you will surely enjoy all of them, including #KinnaSona, a lot.
Earlier in an interview, Sidharth Malhotra said,
“When I heard director Milap Zaveri’s narration, his dialogues were the first thing that got me excited. I felt that I should do this. I got inspired to become a hero watching big action heroes saying dialogues. This is the first time in my career that I am playing a hero and being presented like one, all thanks to Milap and the whole team.”
You can watch the movie once for sure!
