What’s It About
Sidharth Malhotra is the right hand of a dreaded gangster, Nassar. He is hated badly by the gangsters’ son, Riteish Deshmukh, who feels his dad loves Sid more than him. However, Malhotra suddenly has a change of heart once he falls in love with dumb Tara Sutaria. Will he be able to leave this world of crime and lead a normal life? Or will his past sins catch up to him and make him do things to the beloved people he never imagined he would do? Well, for the answers you’ve to watch the film.

What’s Hot
Excepting the song ‘Tum Hi Aana’ penned by Kunaal Vermaa, composed by Payal Dev and sung by Jubin Nautiyal, there is nothing that is ever worth a mention.

What’s Not
Sidharth Malhotra needs to understand at some point in his career that mere good looks aren’t enough to come up with a great film. All the effort that he seems to have put into this film seems to have been in the gym. His bulging biceps and long locks are sure to give any girl sleepless nights. Sadly, to make the movie worth your time, that’s not enough.

Riteish Deshmukh, who hardly ever disappoints, is on a string of bad performances. In ‘Housefull 4′ he didn’t have enough to do, and in this one, he is not even one percent of the dreaded villain he was in ‘Ek Villain‘ . I wish he had thought hard enough before picking up this film.

Rakul Preet Singh, who has pretty much the best performance among the lead actors, is hardly visible in the movie. Her blink-and-miss performance could have been extended and used much better in the film.

Talking about the story of the film, it is so confusing that you will be left pulling out your hair as why things are happening the way they are happening. To be fair, till the first half, you will be left wondering which direction the movie is heading towards. The second half slightly gives you a sniff of a storyline, however, at the climax, it all vanishes into thin air.

The more I talk of this film, it just angers the heck out of me. In short, this is a shitty film.

Watch ‘Marjaavaan’ only if you want to tear your hair off your heads. Otherwise, AVOID. Makers of Bollywood masala potboilers need to know that Hindi audiences are now done and dusted with the high flying south Indian style action sequences. They are looking out for a story these days. Even if you don’t have a story and it’s simply a commercial film, at least have an Akshay Kumar or a Salman Khan as the leading man of your film. They are still managing to pull it off, while the rest are just perishing down in the dust. For ‘Marjaavaan’ I am going with a sheer one star.

Considering there aren’t any bigger releases than ‘Marjaavaan’ this week, this movie might just have a smooth run at the ticket windows. Sadly, that’s the way how Bollywood works.
