Synopsis

„Manmarziyaan” explores the colourful beauty and vibrant culture of Amritsar, Punjab, through the tale of an arranged marriage.
When Robbie Bhatia comes to his hometown to find a companion, little did he know that he would hopelessly fall in love with his wife, a vivacious Punjabi girl, within a few days.
Meanwhile, his wife, Rumi, is struggling to find true meaning of love and learning to adapt to a new life. As her past resurfaces and threatens to disrupt her present, she is forced to wonder what her heart really wants.
Working from a screenplay by author Kanika Dhillon, who wrote the satiric novel „Bombay Duck is a Fish” and co-wrote Shah Rukh Khan's superhero movie „Ra.One”, director Anurag Kashyap strikes a knowing tone with this film. The arc of the story celebrates Bollywood tradition, with its love complications and family obstacles. But the feel is up-to-the-minute, with daring scenes unimaginable a few years back.
