The trailer of maverick Director Anurag Kashyap’s next film, Manmarziyaan, has released, and the first thing that strikes you about it is how it looks to be his most commercial venture yet. Firstly, it’s in the romance genre – something Kashyap isn’t known for – and secondly, the plot appears to be full of emotion and humor, set against the backdrop of a love triangle. Maybe it’s the Aanand L. Rai effect, whose Colour Yellow Productions is jointly producing the movie with Kashyap’s Phantom films.
However, being a Kashyap film, the emotions are neither melodramatic nor is the humor over the top – the feelings shown between the lead cast flow naturally and the jokes are quirky and full of wit. This one looks like a funny, heartwarming desi rom-com that could prove to be a dark horse. Watch the trailer below:
Manmarziyaan stars Abhishek Bachchan, Taapsee Pannu, and Vicky Kaushal in lead roles, and is slated for release on 14th September 2018.
