What works in favour of Manmarziyaan, according to trade analyst Girish Johar, is the music of the film by Amit Trivedi and its strong star cast. In a conversation with indianexpress.com, trade analyst Girish Johar said that the movie has created the right amount of buzz among cinephiles and people are excited to see Junior Bachchan back on the screen after a gap of two years.
Indian Express’ film critic Shubhra Gupta in her review of the film wrote, “Taapsee Pannu stands out, trying to work past the clichéd role. This is the first time the excellent Vicky Kaushal is not able to make the character his own: fresh off Sanju, this is a disappointment. And Bachchan’s Robbie, fashioned as an antidote to the mercurial Rumi, reminds you so strongly of Ajay Devgn’s part in Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam that it’s hard to separate them.”
