Mirzya - Preview

wogma rating: Switch channels if it's on cable (?)
quick review:

Pretends to be intense. Pretends to be romantic. Pretends to be enigmatic. Pretends to be Shakespearean – how can it be without the complexity or the tragedy.

I can safely say that Mirzya's music reviews have caught my attention more than the trailer. From its trailer, Mirzya looks like a regular love triangle, even if it is much more intense.

You can see Harshvardhan Kapoor's character's pain in that one scene where he sits overlooking a city. Even so, the story holds no particular hook. The shift between period setting and current days, between bikes, bicycles, and horses isn't too intriguing either.

However, the music reviews have built up hope. Which is a good thing because, with 15 tracks, Mirzya might as well be a musical. Hope it is what bring novely to this otherwise, seemingly ordinary love triangle.
