Ace director’s Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra’s latest project Mirzya has hit the theatres today. Anil Kapoor’s son Harshvardhan Kapoor is debuting with Saiyami Kher with this epic love story.
Munish (Harshvardhan Kapoor) and Suchitra (Saiyami Kher) are inseparable from childhood. They can do anything for each other and in one unpredictable situation Munish shoots a school teacher dead because he punished Suchitra. To punish Munish is sent to a juvenile home from which he eventually escapes. In the meanwhile Suchitra and father leave the village. After many years they meet again in a complete new situation. Suchitra who is returned from abroad is in a relationship with Prince Karan (Raj Chaudhary) under whom Munish is working as horse stable. Love sparkles between Munish and Suchitra. The rest of the story follows in Munish and Suchitra discovering their inner feelings and passion for each other.
Mirzya as a movie fails to create the same impact which the trailers have created in our mind. The music, cinematography and performers look stunning in the trailer but sadly the film fails to impress so.
A power-packed name like Gulzar brings in lots of expectations and raises the bar. But Gulzar’s screenplay is very slow paced and dialogues don’t gel with the audience.
The narrative switch between the real love story and folklore Mirza-Sahiban representation is very confusing. Coming to the performances despite being debutants Harshvardhan and Saiyami do a notable performance.
Overall Mirzya is a typical poor boy in love with a rich girl plot attempted to show in a novel way but fails to bring in the freshness!
