Manmarziyaan, directed by Anurag Kashyap, and starring Abhishek Bachchan, Vicky Kaushal and Taapsee Pannu is going to be released on 21 September 2018. It was initially scheduled to come out on September 7 2018. The movie is being touted as a romantic drama, which is going to be Anurag’s first venture into the genre after gritty gangster movies and the sports drama this year, Mukkabaaz. The first look of the three leads was released in March, and it was revealed that Abhishek Bachchan is going to play a Sikh character, while Vicky and Taapsee are going to play lovers, and their first look was of them in a motorbike and looking happy.
Anurag Kashyap has had a very good year, with the success of his Netflix series, Sacred Games, breaking boundaries for Hindi language content. The show, which he co-directed with Director, Vikram Adityamotwane has become an instant international sensation because of its cast of characters and originality. The cast, Saif Ali Khan, Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Radhika Apte, and most importantly, the supporting players have received critical acclaim for their performances.
Manmarziyaan is going to be a departure and tone for the director, but it seems that its going to be as potent with themes about modern India as he has done it in movies like Gangs of Wasseypur, and Black Friday. It is also going to be Abhishek’s return to the silver screen after two years. He hasn’t been able to make an impact in the Indian cinema, but he the new look for the movie seems to indicate that he is going to give another performance as strong as his work in Guru. Anurag Kashyap is also known for making his actors go to lengths for their actors, but the result is always more than satisfactory, with actors serving their best performances in his movies.
