Director Rakesh Omprakash Mehra’s MIRZYA Premiered With A Star Studded Cast In The London Film Festival. The film was screened in the Embankment Garden Cinema with fans and film enthusiasts attending it. It was a star studded event with the complete cast including the film director attending the screening. The cast included Harshvardhan Kapoor and Saiyami Kher. Special guests included Anil Kapoor, Sonam Kapoor and Art Malik. The premier became more of a family affair, as the Kapoor family stood together with Art Malik and Saiyami Kher.
MIRZYA is a blend of fantasy and reality. Being the acting debut feature film for Harsvardhan Kapoor and Saiyami Kher, the film is visually stunning, with beautiful blend of music. Adapted from the famous love story of ‘Mirza Sahiba’, the director tried to show the film from a different angle, bringing in a new form of story telling to the audience. At the same time, the film was quite predictable, as it is a story told over and over again in the sub continent.

Performance wise, Harshvardhan Kapoor and Saiyami Kher did their best. Both showed chemistry which at times looked quite perfect, but at some places looked a bit weak. Over all both did a good job, but their is always a room for improvement. The script of the film is over all OK, but not the best. As it is a topic on which movies have been made in uncountable numbers in the past, it becomes more challenging for script writers to put in something new that would grab the attention of the audience. The music of the film is quite up to date, with a blend of classical, rock and qawali. The poetry is magnificent, and as it is mostly in Punjabi language, it has more depth in its meanings. If you do want to watch this movie, then don’t watch it for its ending, but for the beauty of its cinematography, the locations and quite simply the art of film making it self.
