‘Ek Villain’ (2014) was Sidharth Malhotra’s break-out film in a way. After making his debut in Karan Johar’s ‘Student Of The Year’ (2012), he had an average success in the form of ‘Hasee Toh Phasee’ (2014). ‘Ek Villain’ proved to be a humungous success and Sidharth, as the lead actor of the film, benefited greatly from it.  While the film was directed by Mohit Suri and written (screenplay) by Tushar Hiranandani, the dialogues were penned by Milap Milan Zaveri.

The ‘seeti-maar’ or clap-trap dialogues, written by Milap, endeared Sidharth to the masses. Now, five years later, Milap is the director of ‘Marjaavaan’, a film which features Sidharth as the quintessential Hindi film hero. Sidharth has earlier been seen in slightly ‘massy’ roles in films like ‘Ek Villain’ and ‘Brothers’ but there were only glimpses of a larger-than-life persona in those films. In ‘Marjaavaan’, Milap seems to have left no stone unturned to present Sidharth in a larger-than-life, heroic avatar.

Sidharth is going through a rough patch in his career but ‘Marjaavaan’ is expected to be that film which can turn around things for him in a big way. ‘Marjaavaan’ is also an important film for Milap whose career as a director got a huge revival with the success of ‘Satyameva Jayate’ last year. There are already huge expectations from his next ‘Satyameva Jayate 2’ and if this turns out to be a good success, the expectations definitely be higher.
