Schoolmates Mohnish/Aadil (Harshvardhan) and Suchitra (Saiyami) are pre-teen lovers, who get separated due to an unfortunate event occurring in their hometown Jodhpur. While Mohnish is sent to a juvenile correction home for murder, only to come out as Aadil, Suchitra turns out to be this royal lady all ready to marry off Prince Karan (Anuj).
Years later, they both discover each other during Suchitra’s horse riding lessons, and learn that the fire of love hasn’t still died yet! This embarks a journey of two lovelorn lovers fighting the world to unite as one!
- Inspired from the famous folklore of star-crossed lovers Mirza-Sahiban, the literary background, present bits and fusion of Daler Mehndi, Mehra and Gulzar has created a Broadway-style format.
- Harshvardhan and Saiyami, the DEBUTANTS, have performed in a grandeur style, and their passionate chemistry is the major USP of the movie.
- Pawel Dyllus, cinematographer, has managed to shot the visuals of Rajasthan and the people in the most mesmerizing manner.
- A melodious score by Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy and Daler Mehndi has added a sense of lavishness.
- Anuj makes a smashing debut as Prince Karan, and manages to draw the attention whenever on the screen!
- Om Puri, Art Malik, KK Raina, and Anjali Patil have proved to be a powerful asset for the movie.
- Action scenes are superbly choreographed, and have no technical glitches.
- Editing is commendable.
- WITH Gulzar Saab writing the screenplay after 17 years, the movie will make you fall in love.
- Harshvardhan looked every inch as appealing and sexy, and the shirtless scene will actually make you drool to your bits!
- A major setback would be the lack of passion between the lead pair, which also shows on screen.
- As the folklore is quite popular, there is a massive absence between the real conflict and suspense.
- Harshvardhan is a little vulnerable at times, showing off his weak points at certain edges.
- Saiyami seems to withhold emotions in some scenes.
A movie with high aesthetics and poetic recitation, Mirzya is a panoramic portrait that needs to be explored.
