Critic Reviews Mirzya

  • Times of India | Review By -Meena Iyer Rating-7/10
Harsh manages to give glimpses of his vulnerability and intensity as a performer. And, also his physical strength (the shirtless scene). While Saiyami, who withholds emotions in a few scenes, sparkles, Anuj makes an impressive debut. If you are drawn to stories that are high on aesthetics with lyrical narratives, Mirzya is a portrait that deserves a long look.

  • News18 | Review By -Rajeev Masand Rating-4/10
For a film inspired by a legendary romance, it’s a shame the lovers in Mirzya can’t quite set the screen on fire. In the end Mirzya is a misfire, despite its staggering ambition and its remarkable technical achievements. I’m going with two out of five.

  • Rediff | Review By -Raja Sen Rating-3/10
There is no reason to champion these immature lovers, and their struggle seems both needless and predictable. Mirzya is a film where Art gets drunk, creates a scene and passes out.

  • NDTV | Review By -Saibal Chatterjee Rating-5/10
Unfortunately, the other numbers, visually and musically arresting as they might be, look like standalone creations. They do little to enhance the many moods that the film seeks to capture. Mirzya is a colourful but tepid tableau populated by pretty but comatose marionettes that even Gulzar's poetry cannot stir to life.

  • Mid Day | Review By -Mayank Shekhar Rating-4/10
Flitting between these two sets of self-aware, self-indulgent sequences, and with little to empathise or care about, frankly, my head hurts from all the fakery. But then again, art or fart, is, of course, a very subjective call. Well, you know what I thought.

  • India Today | Review By -Ananya Bhattacharya Rating-6/10
The first half of Mirzya is crafted well. The intermission arrives smoothly, without the film taking a toll on your patience. The second half has gaps which seem to stretch on for long, leaving you restless. In its own space, that of a musical romantic tragedy, Mirzya is fabulous. But it can't rise above the mediocre, as far as a complete film is concerned.

  • Koimoi | Review By -Surabhi Redkar Rating-5/10
Mirzya is a film for a niche audience. People who enjoy poetry in motion, this film is exactly that. For those who prefer frothy love stories, this intense affair may bore you out. Mirzya is a dramatic, poetic and visually aesthetic yet fails to blow you away.

  • Hindustan Times | Review By -Rohit Vats Rating-5/10
This 135-minute Shakespearean drama is visually impressive, but lacks the essence of a heart wrenching love-story. It’s a period drama trying hard to be a musical. And music? Probably the best in last couple of years.

  • DNA | Review By -Sarita Tanwar Rating-6/10
Mirzya has parallel stories running through and sadly, both lack the emotional connect. Mirzya is random, abstract and niche – not particularly everyone’s cup of tea. Watch it for Harshvardhan Kapoor and Saiyami Kher – the most unassuming debutants of 2016.

  • Indian Express | Review By -Shubhra Gupta Rating-3/10
Mirzya movie review: Harshvardhan Kapoor and Saiyami Kher's film is a beautiful, lush production but what it lacks is that crucial element between the two which makes romance come alive.

  • Spotboye | Review By -Khalid Mohamed Rating-5/10
Sorry but the restless shifts from the distant past to the present – emphasising the point that love continues to be a many-hazardous thing, especially if a couple belongs to disparate social strata -- doesn’t quite gel. Overall, the outcome is  choppy, incoherent and more artsy than absorbing, prompting you to check your wrist-watch.

  • Bollywood Life | Review By -Tushar Joshi Rating-4/10
Mirzya is a visual masterpiece, but one only hoped that it had a narrative that promised an equally brilliant premise. Watch it to usher in two newcomers Harshvardhan Kapoor and Saiyami Kher who fortunately have follow up films that hopefully do more justice to their skills.

  • Gulf News | Review By -Manjusha Radhakrishnan Rating-5/10
Watch Mirzya if you have a penchant for folk tales, poetry and mysticism. This grand love tragedy requires you to show a willingness to be transported to a land where lovers are skittish and crazy. Overall, Mirzya is poetic but unimpressive.

  • Bollywood Hungama | Review By -BH Review Rating-4/10
Although the plot of MIRZYA (rich girl-poor boy-disapproving parents) has been attempted umpteen times before in Bollywood, MIRZYA offers absolutely no novelty (in the form of twists and turns) in the film. The film, in totality, looks completely lifeless and falls flat on the face.
