Lacks in story, but, an outstanding audio-visual experience.
7 October 2016 | by maulin5See all my reviews

After a very high expectations, one should desire to gain something extraordinary. I'm from one of them. I'm die hard fan of Gulzar and Rakesh Omprakash Mehra. So, may be you can find it bias.

The legend of Mirza-Sahiban was the concept which Rakesh had to filmed. For that his writer, Gulzar penned a similar story. And then narration goes smoothly in both the eras in the film. What made Sahiban to brake Mirza's arrows is the question to be found. And the team leaves you to think and find out whatever answer you would like to keep.

Anil Kapoor's son Harshvardhan Kapoor is here as Mirza. And it's his debut film. Saiyami Kher plays the role of Sahiban. Both the newcomers had done above average work. All the other actors, like Om Puri, Art Malik and Anuj Chaudhary are good in their respective roles. Some dancers are there, and they keep coming to the screen to tell a pain in a folk-dance form. These little elements make this film a worthy watch.

Otherwise, as far as story is concern, the question of broken arrows is good, but what else we want from the tale? Despite the fact that the team of Mirzya had not enough material to present, the team experiments and develops new things. In these new things, the major one is Indian Cultural Music.

Shankar, Ehsaan, Loy & Daler Mehndi have given the music as well as background score. Gulzar has written lyrics in the form of poetry. Every single song with its meaningful words stays with you in your heart if you are able to listen it. If not, than just O Mirzyaa in the voice of Daler Paaji can able to melt your inner anger and you'll find yourself in some unknown moment which delivers only peace. Title track and Teen Gawah are five out of five songs. Every single bit of these songs are my obsession. I can't describe what I feel when I listen these songs, but for me it's wonderful experience.

Hitchki, Hota Hai, Nadi, Chakora - all these songs deserve awards. No Indian movie has given this type of pure Indian music. And I'm not talking about only this year, I don't remember when did last time I hear these type of purity in Indian movie music. Hat's off! Now, let's talk about Cinematography by Pawel Dyllus. I can imagine whatever Mirzya film shows in Rajasthan. Though, that is superb, but let me be frank. I can imagine this type of cinematography. But... One thing is beyond my imagination, and that is the part of Ladakh. I can't imagine how difficult it was to shoot in Ladakh on such a large level. Like with the usage of 20 horses and 30 people, running here and there, and the little drops of water which move in slow motion with shining. Every single picture or shot is 100% perfect or even above that in the part of Ladakh.

Director Rakesh Omprakash Mehra had given films like Rang De Basanti and Bhaag Milkha Bhaag. These films got successful. But, Delhi-6 and Aks didn't. Mirzya will go in the second category. Box office collection will not be high as M.S. Dhoni is running nicely. And mix review of these movie will not get more people after weekend. The things will be remembered, are the visuals, the unusual film-making, the cultural music with great lyrics, the beauty of Ladakh & the answer of those broken arrows.

Some people don't make films for money, or to be famous, they just make what they want to. I salute to Rakesh and his visions. Film will remain in my heart forever like one line of the title track speaks, 'Marta nahi hai Ishq O Mirza, Sadiyon Saahiban rahti hai'!

Dare to love. Dare to be desirable. Dare to be like Rakesh. Dare to think and develop. Dare to do for self. Dare to be unusual.
