Mirziya Movie Audience Review
Star Cast: Harshvardhan Kapoor, Saiyami Kher
Directed by Rakesh Omprakash Mehra
Mirzya is a very simple yet extremely layered love legend. The lovers here face what lovers everywhere have faced since love was discovered in the human heart. As in “ Rang De Basanti” Mehra creates two levels of storytelling one that is situated in the presenttimes with lovers going through the love tropes with a kind of gentle persuasiveness that makes destiny seem charmingly welcome and the other love story that unfolds in a snowswept landscapes of the past with a fatal fury.
And Gulzar gives them such lovely lines to speak. Harshvardhan and Saiyami own these lines with proprietary pride. The exemplary sound design (Pranav Shula) is so textured and totally correct we can heart evey crack in the lover’s hearts.
This brings me to the movie exceptional technical qualities “ Mirzya ” is arguably the most technically accomplished piece of cinema in a very long time. Spaces in the heart are virtually manisfested onscreen in the character clothes, demeanour, performance and posture.
The visual landscape reifies the emotional content of the plot without hammering in the link between waht we see and what the character feel. The romance in the past fuelled by a nomadic mating dances and rituals from folk art which coalesce in comfortable union of a fugitive heritage and contemporary conventions.
