Malhotra stars as the lead in the romantic thriller, who falls in love Sutaria, a mute girl. This relationship causes a rift between him and his mentor Riteish Deshmukh, a local don. Marjaavaan reunites the two actors onscreen after 2014's Ek Villain, directed by Mohit Suri.
The film draws inspiration from 1970s Bollywood films, packed with high-octane fights and dramatic sequences. Milap Zaveri (Mastizaade, Satyameva Jayate) has written and helmed the feature.
Marjaavaan has received a mixed response from the audience and critics. In her review for Firstpost, Anna Vetticad wrote, "Marjaavaan is so hackneyed that even the usually restrained Malhotra is driven to intermittent over-acting during its two-hours-plus running time. Deshmukh hams his way through playing Vishnu. Ms Sutaria is bland."
