‘Mirzya’ review: Made for a sexless society, here how movie gives love a really bad name
Mirzya review; Mirza-Sahiban is a standout, emotional roller-coaster ride of a story. It has left strong men in tears and women in worse shape. A number of movies have been made on it and to be honest, none of them managed to do what the latest version has managed - trash the folk tale and make it a subject of frustration and anger - the watching of it was pure torture. Mirzya stars two debutants, the strapping Harshvardhan Kapoor and the svelte and sensuous Saiyami Kher. And it shows! So, here's how to give love a bad name. (Bollywood Hungama)
Mirzya Movie Review: Director Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra took a love story about childhood lovers Munish (Harshvardhan Kapoor) and Suchitra (Saiyami Kher) and he managed to make it uninspiring. The back ground may be great, the visualisation is picture perfect, but what the two actors and the rest of the cast were doing was to make it inane. It is too slow, storyline has been made too complex for words and there is no thrill conveyed to the wider audience about the passion, the violence of the time nor the nature of society at its worst when it comes to sex and marriage between 'unequals' - that is what they are in the film, with Munish at the lower end of the society and Suchitra at the top.

Mirzya Movie Review: The movie has no business of going into the flashback mode repeatedly. Mehra is smitten with the childhood part. It could have been easily trimmed to the bare passionate/violent parts be done with it to focus on the love story per se. But no, the viewer has to bear with the fact that the lovers had a past when they were kids and how they sacrificed their comfort and easy life for the other. (Bollywood Hungama)
Mirzya Movie Review: The actors keep coming up on the huge canvas that is definitely beautifully lit up, but getting the lead actors into the mode of delivering on the love story is an endless wait. Both the actors, even in the most dangerous part of the scenes, when they can lose their lives or be separated forever, fail to convey the immediacy of the horror faced. They may well have been taking a stroll in the park. (Indian Express)
Mirzya Movie Review: While the director fails to get the best out of the lead pair, the film marks their debut, both Harshvardhan Kapoor and Saiyami Kher just cannot get over their rawness in the film. They are like 2 wooden boards and the feelings they are expected to convey are wooden, to say the least. Early days yet for them both, but who in the world allowed them into the movie without making sure they tick at least a few of the acting boxes. (Indian Express)
Mirzya Movie Review: The sexual attraction, the desires, the passion of a young great looking, highly sexualised, couple (evident from the kind of clothes the grown up heroine wears and the masculinity that Kapoor displays is totally missing! It is such a sanitised version of the love story that it may have been produced for a sexless society! (Indian Express)
Mirzya Movie Review: The only time there is some feelings imbued into the movie is when the songs start playing. Not all, as the film is filled with them, but the ones that stand out are "Mirzya" (Daler Mehndi is surprisingly good!), "Aave re hichki", and "Teen Gawah Ishq ke". (Indian Express)
