Cine-lovers have a good film selection this week. Anurag Kashyap's Manmarziyaan and Taberez Noorani's Love Sonia open in theatres today. Both films have been praised for their content and strong plot in the international circuits. Anurag Kashyap's Manmaziyaan, alternately titled Marriage Material, is a fresh take on romance. Rumi (played by Taapsee Pannu) tired of dealing with her boyfriend Vicky (Vicky Kaushal), who is not willing to take responsibility of their relationship, decides to get married to Robbie (Abhishek Bachchan), whom her family has selected for her. But matters of heart are not that simple. Rumi, Vicky and Robbie learn it the hard way.

On the other hand, Love Sonia depicts the dark world of human trafficking and forced prostitution, in a way, which will make the audience extremely uncomfortable. Love Sonia marks television actress Mrunal Thakur's Bollywood debut. Love Sonia also features Richa Chadha, Freida Pinto, Rajkummar Rao, Sai Tamhankar, Demi Moore and Manoj Bajpayee.
