Manmarziyaan, which is being directed by Anurag Kashyap, is going to release on September 7 2018. The movie stars Abhishek Bachchan, Vicky Kaushal and Taapsee Pannu, and their characters have been revealed in the first pictures, which also confirms that Vicky and Taapsee are playing lovers. According to the filmmakers, the movie is about the theme that heart wants what it wants, and is going to be an examination of love and relationships. Anurag’s recent movie, Mukkabaaz, was critically acclaimed, as it was praised for showing a complex portrait of caste system, discrimination and sports. The movie wasn’t a box office success, though, as it didn’t feature any Bollywood A-listers.
Anurag Kashyap is one of the most acclaimed directors of Hindi cinema, but he has always been interested in making independent movies, rather than going with superstars. His big budgeted, Bombay Velvet, which starred Anushka Sharma and Ranbir Kapoor was a financial and commercial failure, but he came back with movies like Ugly and Mukkabaaz, gaining critical acclaim for both of them.
Abhishek Bachchan, who has not been in movies lately, will make his screen comeback, and both rising stars, Vicky Kaushal and Taapsee Pannu are going to be seen in love with each other. Anurag is known for making uncompromising movies, that sometimes have hard hitting endings, and this one looks like it could be something special too.
