Mirza Juuliet....Poor rehash

MUMBAI: Mirza Juuliet is one more spin-off on the legendary Punjabi folk tale of Mirza Sahiban, the love story of Mirza and Sahiban. A film was made on the same story in 2016 in a modern context as Mirzya. Mirza Juuliet is just another feebler attempt.

The character of Sudarshan Kumar comes back to his maternal uncle?s home where he was brought after he was orphaned. But, he runs away. His father and mother were killed by the gun wielding goons in UP. He was restless to seek revenge. Having run away from his uncle?s care, Kumar seeks a job at a dhaba where, one day, he spots the killers responsible for his parents? death. He kills them with their own gun.

Sent to a juvenile home, one wonders how Kumar did emerges a grown up man when he is released! The film then goes on to chart a script of will.

Kumar ran away even while his uncle was bringing him home to care for him as he was an orphan and he has been in some sort of custody ever since. But, after being released, he already has a backstory about his childhood love with the character of Piaa Bajpai, his uncle?s neighbour! It seems she was his companion in school as well as life around the mohalla.

This Mirzya Sahibaan story is based in UP and, as if mandatory, involves political background. Piaa?s three brothers are gun totting bahubalis, her fianc? is the son of a politician with plans to become the next chief minister. There are family intrigues and killings.

What irks Piaa is her fianc??s sexual advances even before marriage. In one such attempts by him, she realises that what her fianc? wants to do with her, she would rather she did it with Kumar. She realises she loves him.
Having finished with its UP style friendships, relationships, enmities and intrigues, the film now resorts to the legend of Mirza Saahiban. If you watched Mirzya, you are watching a rehash, albeit more convoluted, in this film.

The film looks dated, has a poor script, poorer execution and nothing working for it. Viewer does not care for regional politics or bahubali stories, especially the UP, Bihar kind.

Producers: Neeraj Kumar Burman, Ketan Maru, Amit Singh.

Director: Rajesh Ram Singh.

Cast: Piaa Bajpai, Darshan Kummar, Priyanshu Chatterjee and Chandan Roy Sanyal.
