Storyline

Raghu is a loyal goon to the local thug Narayan Anna who controls the water mafia in Mumbai. Anna's dependence on Raghu doesn't sit well with Vishnu (Anna's son), whose complexes arise from more than just his short stature, as he is only three feet tall. When Raghu falls for Zoya, a mute musically-inclined Kashmiri girl who teaches children music, Vishnu jumps at the opportunity to use it to discredit his father's most favorite goon.

Vishnu kidnaps Gaitonde (one of his father's enemies) and tells a kid Zoya had selected for her music festival to shoot him. Zoya sees this and flees but Vishnu is already alerted of her presence. Vishnu tells his father that there was an eyewitness to Gaitonde's murder and that witness is Zoya, so Anna orders Raghu to kill Zoya, not knowing that Raghu loves her. Raghu finds Zoya and tries to run away from Vishnu and his father but Vishnu catches them and orders Raghu, Zoya, and all the kids to be killed. Vishnu's father tells Raghu he and the kids will be safe if he kills only Zoya, as she is the eyewitness to Gaitonde's murder. Zoya tells Raghu to kill her so that he and the kids remain safe. Zoya gives Raghu the gun, places her thumb over his, pulls the tigger and dies in his arms.

The police arrest a traumatized Raghu for Zoya's murder. In jail, Raghu becomes depressed and broken. Zoya is buried by the children, Raghu's friends and her friends. Vishnu tries to get Raghu killed in jail, knowing if he is released, he will take revenge. However, Raghu beats up the goons Vishnu hired. Vishnu then cuts off Raghu's friend Mazar's leg because Mazar kicked him. When Vishnu's father tells him that Raghu will be sentenced to life, Vishnu helps Raghu get out by bribing the proofs, planning to kill Raghu upon his release. However, when Raghu returns, Vishnu sees that Raghu is not the same after Zoya's death. His father tells him that Raghu died the day he killed Zoya. Vishnu tries various ways to bring Raghu back to his old ways but fails.Raghu had completely changed and all his old habits had changed. Vishnu's father catches him and warns him against this but Vishnu angrily kills his father and sends goons to kill Raghu. However, Raghu kills them all and buries them. He visits Zoya's grave and vows revenge on Vishnu; he is joined by his friends in this mission.

On the day of Dussera, when Vishnu comes to burn Ravana's idol, Raghu arrives and starts beating all the goons. Vishnu pierces an arrow into Raghu's heart but Raghu burns him. While dying, Raghu sees Zoya's soul and dies peacefully, surrounded by friends and family. The police arrive and the inspector tells the Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) that Raghu died. The ACP replies that Raghu returned to his life, which was with Zoya.

2.5

Raised as the right-hand man of a tanker mafia in Mumbai, Raghu’s (Sidharth Malhotra) life changes when he sees Zoya (Tara Sutaria). But this love story is probably destined for doom.

In one of its early scenes, the film’s leading man Sidharth Malhotra (chewing the rear end of a matchstick) lands up in a shady looking godown to beat up the bad guys. He brings along a first aid kit (a la Big B in Trishul where he brings the ambulance along) and justifies it by saying, “Main todunga bhi aur tod kar jodunga bhi.” He then fires another one that goes, “Main maroonga marr jayega, dobara janam lene se darr jayega.” And thus, follows many such high on drama, low on impact lines and action scenes where grim looking burly men engage in fist fights and throw each other around. Only if this action came with logic and conviction to match.

The film’s plot is reminiscent of many potboilers straight out of the 80s, with barely any novelty in execution. There is love, drama, action and revenge packed in an exhausting two and a half hours of narrative, full of clichés and stereotypes. Thankfully, Marjaavaan has a few good actors, who strive to make their characters work against all odds. Leading them is ironically, the film’s villain Vishnu, played by Riteish Deshmukh. As a midget, who is obsessed with metaphors around height, Riteish doesn’t exactly look dreadful but his performance instills some fear. However, as he constantly mouths over-the-top filmy dialogues, it blunts his villainy making it unintentionally funny.

Sidharth Malhotra, on the other hand, has a fine screen presence and he attempts to put in an honest performance. But his character is one-note and the film’s overall writing lacks the depth to make it impactful. The film’s leading lady, Tara Sutaria, looks beautiful in the role of a mute girl Zoya, but doesn’t have much to work with. Ditto for Rakul Preet Singh (in a special appearance), who plays a bar dancer, Aarzoo. She has little to do than showing off her moves on the dance floor and flaunting her perfect hour-glass figure. Among the character artistes, veteran south actor Nassar and Bhojpuri star Ravi Kishen, impress in their limited screen time. The film’s music is melodious and peppy that blends well with the narrative, but there are far too many songs, adding to an already lengthy runtime. The background score is loud and distracting.

Marjaavaan attempts to check all the boxes for an emotional action rollercoaster, but its dated execution doesn’t quite make the kill.
