Rating: 2.5/ 5
A Tanker mafia named Anna (Nassar) raised Raghu (Sidharth Malhotra) in Mumbai. Raghu is his muscleman and does all his dirty work. Anna’s closeness to Raghu doesn’t go well with Vishnu (Riteish Deshmukh), who is Anna’s real son. He tries all sorts to defame Raghu and take revenge for this. Raghu’s life takes a turn when Zoya (Tara Sutaria) comes in his life as Vishnu plans to eliminate him. This triangle creates drama and action which comes to an end in the climax.
The film is a masala film right from the beginning with some dialogues. The plot is reminiscent of many potboilers straight out of the 80s and 90s. The script writer and director have tried to put every masala, from love and drama to action for full two and a half hours. There are good performances, but script has many flaws which put the brakes on the film at many places. The film’s villain Vishnu, played by Riteish Deshmukh is dreadful. He has put all efforts in his role. Sidharth Malhotra has also shown his talent. He has put efforts to look like a goon and present mannerism. He has some good dialogues along the script.
The film’s leading lady, Tara Sutaria, looks beautiful. She has put in efforts to fit into the role of a mute girl Zoya. Rakul Preet Singh (in a special appearance) plays a bar dancer, Aarzoo. She has a small role and has nothing more to offer other than showing off her moves on the dance floor. Veteran south actor Nassar has played his role well. Bhojpuri star Ravi Kishen has also impressed with his performance. The film’s music is good and already in chartbusters.
Marjaavaan attempts to please the audience with all types of masala. Siddharth fans may like the movie.
