When Curcuit does a half-hearted attempt at being Munnabhai and fails.

Wogma Review

In their childhood, boy sees girl and girl sees boy. Love at first sight happens. They part as soon as they meet. Years later guess what happens? How is this even a story? How is the story of this character legendary? I very consciously try not to say this about any film, but I am so close to asking - why is “The Legend of Michael Mishra” even a movie?

Love stories in which the protagonists go to extremes to prove their love are common enough. Love stories in which the hero thinks he is going to an extreme when he isn't really, can only get your eyes to roll. Top it off with lame dialogue and average performances and there is barely anything to appreciate about it.

The Legend of Michael Mishra has no substance what so ever, which is alright, right? We are used to films with no substance. Well, this one has no form either.

Oh, dear - sounds like you didn't like this one at all.

So who's the male lead? Arshad Warsi or Boman Irani?

meeta:

@timeliebe Well, it is Arshad Warsi. But how does it matter. :/

TimELiebe:

@Meeta - because we're all kind of Arshad Warsi fans...?

Also Boman Irani, though he's done more films we haven't liked that much. As I've said elsewhere, he's this really talented actor who sometimes seems to coast in his roles - but when he brings his A-game, I think he may be one of India's best film actors.
