Critic Reviews The Legend of Michael Mishra

  • NDTV | Review By -Saibal Chatterjee Rating-2/10
Never has a movie been more inaptly titled. There is nothing remotely legendary about The Legend of Michael Mishra and its protagonist. This film is a shoddily packaged cock-and-bull yarn that makes as little sense as an alligator waltzing on an autobahn. To cut to the chase, The Legend of Michael Mishra is so egregiously bad that it isn’t funny.

  • Hindustan Times | Review By -Rohit Vats Rating-2/10
There is nothing legendary about this film which glorifies a Patna-based kidnapping kingpin. It is a forgettable affair. But, what may stop you from wiping out this film completely from your memory is that it’s made by the same director who gave us the brilliant Mathrubhoomi in 2003.

  • Koimoi | Review By -Surabhi Redkar Rating-2/10
The second half stretches a lot and if you have managed to stay on your seat till then, that’s an achievement. The Legend Of Michael Mishra is a complete waste of your time and money. If you manage to survive this film without a head-ache, you shall be the legend! A 1/5 for this!

  • India Today | Review By -Suhani Singh Rating-1/10
The longer The Legend of Michael Mishra proceeds more the laughs come at unwarranted moments. Jha's exaggerated set-up turns into a shambolic mess with poor production values and a listless romance. So when a character says, "Zindagi mein kahin chook gaye hain hum" (We've made a mistake in our life), we are ready to accept this as the filmmaker's apology. But forgiveness is a different matter altogether.

  • Bollywood Hungama | Review By -BH Review Rating-3/10
The film's director Manish Jha lands up doing a shabby job with THE LEGEND OF MICHAEL MISHRA. Even the presence of a seasoned actor in the form of Arshad Warsi, was just not good enough to salvage the film from drowning. The film has a shaky start, and continues to wobble till the end. What really works in the favour of the film is the sudden twist (in the second half).

  • Indian Express | Review By -Shubhra Gupta Rating-2/10
Some films are so painfully awful that they can safely be categorised under: what were they thinking Clearly, the people responsible for this enterprise must have thought they were making a comedy. But it made me cry: for the terribly wasted talent of the terribly talented Arshad Warsi, as well as his cohorts who’ve done so much better in earlier outings.

  • Times Of India | Review By -Renuka Vyavahare Rating-3/10
The film's extras come across like they were hired from the streets without any prior acting experience. Aditi Rao Hydari's good looks is the only good thing about this amateurish attempt, masquerading as a feature film, aimed for adults. Don't know about 'Legend' but this insipid film ijj epic fail for sure.

  • News 18 | Review By -Sameeksha Dandriyal Rating-2/10
It's better to ignore this tedious disaster and invest money on a much better small budget watch. As for Warsi, we know he has the potential if only he chooses to showcase it in films with better narrative and storyline. Skip this one and keep your peace of mind intact.

  • Mid Day | Review By -Shaheen Parkar Rating-2/10
In the second half, the actors seem to realise that things are not right. Warsi as an overgrown lover boy hams his way through the film, while Irani Sr and Jr go about their supposedly fun roles to lighten up the scenario, but in vain. Aditi appears to be in a perpetual state of discomfort. Warsi and Irani are known for their comic timing, but are sadly wasted in this one. This legend is certain to be doomed.

  • The Statesman | Review By -Jyotsna Basotia Rating-0/10
Neither quirky nor edgy, the film fails to qualify as a “comedy flick”. Forget laughter, there's not even a slight smile on the face throughout the torturous experience. Love is not in the air in the ludicrous story, and The Legend of Michael Mishra is a blemish in the face of romance. If the cinematography and plot is lousy, the direction and narration deserve zero points. A big thumbs down to the movie.
