Storyline

Maanav is a struggling filmmaker who does not want to compromise on his script. His girlfriend Ruchi is a successful film editor who arranges for him to meet Nitin, a producer. Nitin likes the script but is not very sure of its box office potential. Maanav then suggests a story from the Panchtantra: A woman is caught red-handed with her lover by her husband and yet, she manages to wriggle out of it Scot-free! Nitin loves the story but finds it too short for a feature film. Maanav then creates three more stories based on the same premise: in a way, the Panchantra story travels in different versions to the modern times through the film. The four stories are woven together by a common story. Mirch itself echoes this structure, with four stories mingling with the main narrative. Written by Mannu-Sadana

Not Enough Spice In This One
11 February 2011 | by (Fraggle Rock) – See all my reviews

While the concept may not be entirely novel and writer/director Vinay Shukla seems to have sincere intentions, 'Mirch' suffers from poor writing. There are four stories withing a story (thus in total five). While I liked that the women were portrayed as strong and dominant, the men are almost portrayed as dumb caricatures.

The first story that revolves around a struggling screenwriter and his girlfriend who try to convince a producer to make a movie from his script. While this story is halfbaked, the characters are very poorly developed. Moreover, the Tisca Chopra track in the end is completely pointless and looks forced. The following two stories are more like folktales. While the second segment is well executed, the songs were a bit excessive. The love scenes in the third segment look staged and lacked sensuality but the art direction is wonderful. The fourth segment is pretty much the typical bored metropolitan housewife having an affair with an artist story and it is unnecessarily stretched. Similarly, the last one is needlessly extended and ruined by Boman Irani's irritating performance.

Arunodhay Singh is very good in the second and third segment and he hams it up in the first and fourth segment. Konkona Sen Sharma and Raima Sen are first rate. While Konkona performs naturally, Raima shows tremendous growth as an actress. Ila Arun is equally fun to watch. Shahana Goswami too does a terrific job even though her character wasn't properly fleshed out. Rajpal Yadav does a decent job and Shreyas Talpade goes over the top.

While I liked that 'Mirch' tries to tell the story of smart and dominant women who definitely know how to manipulate their men, it's mostly been let down by poor writing, editing and average execution. Which is a pity because it had a lot of potential.
