Marjaavaan Box Office Review: Expectations
When it’s a Milap Zaveri film, there are always good expectations at the Box Office. Most of his films, be it as a writer or director, have done very well at the Box Office. His last film as a director, Satyamev Jayate did very well at the BO despite competition from another big film Gold and now even its sequel is on cards.
With Marjaavaan, he is carrying quite positive vibes around because the trailers and music have received a quite good response from the public.
Marjaavaan Box Office Review: Impact
The trailers promised an engaging romantic action drama with a high dose of emotions. While the film delivers everything which it promised it lacks an engaging screenplay which is always one of the biggest factors in driving the film. The film has emotions but lacks connect, has a few good dialogues but they don’t come out that well because they haven’t been delivered to match the requirement.
At times I felt, it’s a great opportunity missed. The script had elements that could’ve been so good. The scene in which Raghu kills Zoya could’ve been very emotional if the execution of the film was good. But sadly it comes out lacklustre. Also, the scene in which the goons attacked Shaad Randhawa’s character. It was brilliant but hardly evokes any emotion and that’s the case of poor execution.
Apart from these scenes, the whole second half dips when it had to build upon the drama. The whole revenge plot doesn’t make any sense because the drama hasn’t been established properly.
Sidharth Malhotra delivers a fine performance and he seems to have shown growth as an actor too. However, the kind of character he plays here required a much more skilled actor. Tara Sutaria looks so gorgeous and elegant. Watching her is like watching a dream and she gives a good performance. Rakulpreet Singh is just about okay. But it is Riteish Deshmukh who keeps you hooked in the otherwise half baked drama. His dark character and his performance is so good that want to love to hate him but instead fall in love with him as an actor. Riteish has again proved that he can do more than comedy. It’s time he starts experimenting with his skills more. Shaad Randhawa is a surprise and gives one of the best performances.
Milap Zaveri has missed such a good opportunity. I am saying this again and again because it hurts to see a film with such potential falling flat on its face.
Marjaavaan is still not an outright bad film. Apart from Riteish Deshmukh’s performance, it has some really well-choreographed action scenes which will be liked by the audience. It’s just that all of this is not enough to encourage the audience to go and watch the film in theatres.
Marjaavaan Box Office Review: Prospects
Sadly, Marjaavaan won’t find much patronage even from its target audience which is in huge numbers. A mass entertainer without big stars should have very good drama to attract crowd which it doesn’t have. The film will still do average kind of business at the Box Office and may save itself from being a Flop. The budget of the film is not big so it’ll easily recover its costs.
A lifetime business of Marjaavaan could fall in 40-45 crores range.
