Critic Review
Mirzya (2016) Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra’s MIRZYA is essentially an epic love story set during the contemporary times. The film starts off with the introduction of the childhood of Munish (Harshvardhan Kapoor) and Suchitra aka Suchi (Saiyami Kher). The duo not just go to the school together, but also, sit on the same bench and help each other every time in need. One day, when the school teacher asks Munish for his homework, Suchi lends him her copy. And when Sir asks Suchi for her homework, she says that she had not done the homework. And because of this, the teacher hits her with a cane. Unable to bear the sight, Munish lands up robbing the gun from Suchi’s (police officer) father and shoots the school teacher dead in broad daylight. After that, despite being sentenced to a juvenile remand home, the compulsive thoughts of Suchi make Munish run away from there. Meanwhile, Suchi and her father leave Jodhpur forever and shift to a new location. After a few years, a grown up Suchi returns from abroad only to be received by her fiancé Prince Karan (Raj Chaudhary). Incidentally, Munish (who now lives a ‘changed life’ as Adil Mirza) works in the horse stable of Prince Karan and starts teaching horse riding to Suchi. Munish recognizes her but does not reveal his true identity to her till she guesses who he is. The two fall in love again, but things are very different now as compared to their childhood. Does Munish confess his love to Suchi, does Suchi go ahead with her marriage with Prince Karan and does Munish and Suchi gather the courage to stand up against the world to fight for their love, is what forms the rest of the film..

There movie has no comedy and romance and is filled with too many complex and tragedy stories that make you feel uncomfotable and leave you confused. Its only a one time watch if you like to give your brain too much pressure!.

The film spends much longer on a scene where Malik, as the girl's father, glugs too much whiskey, goes into high melodrama, and then, comically, falls to the floor in a peculiar swoon. Sounds about right: Mirzya is a film where Art gets drunk, creates .

Mirzya is not your traditional young romance where college kids will enjoy the frivolity of young love. It is an artistic take on the passion and zeal of love as an overwhelming experience. You need to deal with its overtly artistic nature with a pinch of.

which is all delivered. What you don’t expect is the constant jumping between the two stories and this takes some getting used to. A valiant effort- 3 out of 5 purely for the appreciation of this vision..

Mirzya' is an artily poetic film which has some stunning visuals, melodious music and good performances. It's just that the impact gets ruined due to super slow narration along with weak screenplay and boring presentation..

Watch Mirzya if you have a penchant for folk tales, poetry and mysticism. This grand love tragedy requires you to show a willingness to be transported to a land where lovers are skittish and crazy..

Watch Mirzya for the visual extravaganza that the film is. And come out with Daler Mehndi's voice, 'Marta nahi ishq o Mirza, sadiyan Sahiban rehti hai.' The legend lives on..

Mirzya disappoints. Coming from all the talent that’s gathered together for this, that’s even more dispiriting..
