Manmarziyaan (transl. The heart's wish; Hindi pronunciation: [mənməɾzɪjaːn]), released internationally as Husband Material,[3] is an Indian Hindi-language romantic comedy-drama film directed by Anurag Kashyap and written by Kanika Dhillon.[4][5] Starring Abhishek Bachchan, Taapsee Pannu and Vicky Kaushal, the film is jointly produced by Phantom Films and Aanand L. Rai's Colour Yellow Productions. Manmarziyaan began filming in February 2018.[6][7][8] It is a love story set in Punjab, India.[8] Principal photography wrapped up in April 2018. It premiered at the 2018 Toronto International Film Festival[9] and was released in India on 14 September 2018 to positive reviews from critics and audience alike.[10][11][12] A trailer was released on 9 August 2018.[13]


Rumi (Taapsee Pannu) a free-spirited, vivacious young woman and Vicky (Vicky Kaushal), a young man waiting for his music break are in love and they can’t stay out of the bedroom. When they’re caught blue-handed by Rumi’s family, pressure builds up to get married. But Vicky has cold feet and keeps avoiding Rumi's request to bring his parents over and reject her hand in marriage. Eventually, she gives up on him and agrees to an arranged marriage which later becomes love marriage. That's when Robbie (Abhishek Bachchan), a banker, enters the proverbial love triangle.

In November 2016, it was announced that Anurag Kashyap will be directing Manmarziyaan, produced by Aanand L. Rai. It was supposed to be directed by Sameer Sharma, who had shot some portions of the film, but Rai was not happy with the rough cut and stopped the shooting. He then approached Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari to direct it, but she could not do it because of her "prior commitments".[8] Initially, it was reported by the media that Dulquer Salmaan, Ayushmann Khurrana and Bhumi Pednekar were cast in the film, but they dropped out of the film. Abhishek Bachchan was then brought in as a replacement for Dulquer Salmaan.[8][15] Pannu's character in the film is a sports shop owner who has learnt hockey from her parents.[7] In December 2017, it was announced that Abhishek Bachchan will be a part of the film. The main cast also features Masaan star, Vicky Kaushal, who plays an aspiring DJ and is unable to commit to his love.[16] The film has been shot in Punjab, while some portions in Delhi and Kashmir.[17].

Box office[edit]

Manmarziyaan had a fair weekend at the Box Office as it managed to accumulate Rs. 14 crore. The film saw further jump in collections on Sunday as a result of which Rs. 5.70 crore more came in. Had the collections been closer to the Rs. 20 crore mark, it would have been even better, more so since there was good effort from Anurag Kashyap, Aanand L. Rai and Eros when it came to taking the film to the audiences.[18]
