Mirch- Movie Review

Roochster

The movies this week weren’t too interesting and I wasn’t too keen on watching Tron Legacy cause it’s just not my type of movie so I chose Mirch.

There are like 5 stories in this movie so I’m not sitting and typing so much. I’ll tell you in short. A struggling writer approaches a producer with his rejected script with too much hope. The producer says sorry boss, give me a script which is solid. The only way to make money from a film is a dumdaar actor or sex.  So the writer thinks up 4 different stories, inspired from Panchatantra, in which there’s infidelity, sex and smart women.

Now coming to my review. The beginning of the movie almost made me snore. The title credits were simultaneously rolling with the protagonist waiting for his girlfriend and drinking beer at the same time. So for the first five minutes, all I could see was his hand and a glass of beer and car keys. But don’t worry… it could only get better from there. And it did. The stories were genuinely good. Ok the 2 stories after the Interval were a little weak compared to the first two.

There are some really talented actors in the movie- Konkana Sen Sharma, Raima Sen, Rajpal Yadav, Boman Irani, Shreyas Talpade, Shahana Goswami, Sushant Singh, Prem Chopra, Ila Arun, Arunoday Singh and Tisca Chopra. Director Vinay Shukla’s very smartly used most of them more than once in all the stories in the movie and they’ve done a good job, except for maybe Arunoday Singh who was just ok.

Cinematography could have been way better considering the beautiful locations they got. The music was pretty good and went well with the movie theme.

Overall, Mirch had quite a bit of masala to make it entertaining but it would’ve been better if the pace was faster too.

Rating– 3/5
