    Mirch rating: 6 out of 10(Aakash Barvalia wrote on 21 Dec 2010)

    Now-a-days adult genre which have sexual topic inside are getting more magnetize to the fellows mango people in our country. Family oriented movies are been made lesser and 9 out 10 movies have something or the other ‘Mrich’ inside it. However we the mango people are quite matured now-a-days as if an only the content is not being showcased as vulgar, then only the movie is appreciated in its own terms, otherwise every alternate are ready to critic and criticize the movie through their respective views. Mirch is the exactly the movie which I am pointing about. Let’s see on how amount of ‘Mirch’ is there on this ‘Mirch’.

    Film describes four different stories from four different points of view through four different eras. There is one struggling film script wittier, Maanav (Arunoday Singh) whose script is getting rejected again and again by numerous producers in Bollywood industry. Finally through his girlfriend influence, who is national awards winner film editor, gets one opportunity to present his script to one of the producer, Nitin (Sushant Singh), whom she had worked in several films. He pays attention to the script but demand for some sexual content which should not be vulgar. As he was strongly opposed to alter any change in his script, he came out with another story, loosely passed on Panchtantra tales, to which the base of the film is sex, but the content is not vulgar. Thereafter he explains four different short stories, two of them of old era and two of them related to the modern era. And later to join all these four different stories, he connects his story to the script adding a little bit of ‘Mirch’ in Producer’s fictional life. In all of the four stories, including the connecting story, is about how a woman is getting caught red-handed by their respective husbands in doing something under the couch scenes with their lovers, and thereafter how they uses their smart brains to escape from the situations with the taste of humor added to it.

    The very first one describes us a story of one carpenter who works for some king and lives with his wife who he thinks that she is having an affair with somebody when he is out whole day. But when caught red handed she instantly uses her brain and not only escapes from the situation but also freely doing all the things in front of her husband. The second is from Raja-Maharaja’s side, where one young sexy Rani is fed up with her old husband king. She then uses a trick to do ‘it’ in front of her old husband king with his own Senapati. Post interval relies on two modern stories in which one gives tit for tat to her husband and the other fools her husband to keep her ‘call girl’ status undisclosed. The connecting producer’s fictional story is based on this fourth story.

    Direction by Vinay Shukla was very impressive; the way he has presented all the four stories is absolutely notable. However writing part has some negatives in that, pre-interval stories are very striking with added good humour to it, but post interval stories are not pretty much convincing. In short, pre-interval old stories were demonstrated with smartness as the two women’s in that stories are showing their proper witty smartness to their husbands after getting caught red handed, but the post interval modern stories are not having pretty much convincing climax, and so do to the fifth connecting story which is also not that convincing as already given hope by their pre-intervals stories. Although overall, all the four stories, including the fifth connecting one are pretty much well shot and nicely described with some added wit humour.

    Editing was good, cinematography was awesome, and not to forget, the sets which have used in ancient stories were very amazingly done by Art Director Mr. Nachiket and Mr. Tapan Roy, who have also worked in Utsav (1985), and in Devdas (2002) respectively.

    Performances by all the cast are just brilliantly done, especially by Arunodhay Roy who had showed his effort very genuinely. I guess his work here will be appreciated in his next film. Raima Sen’s bold avatar was impressive a bit and her performances were overall good. Rest as Boman Irani, Shreyas Talpade, Konkana Sen Sharma were just as perfect as they are in every of their film. Shahana Goswami did her job well and was realistic in every of her scene. Rajpal Yadav, Ila Arun, Prem Chopra and others made a good support.

    Final Verdict:
    It is very much erotic film, but can’t say as most erotic. However, it surely delivers what it is meant for and what it promises for. Surely watchable for one time, but for only those who seek for something different and interesting with some adult humour.

    3 / 5
