Mirzya box office collection day 2: Harshvardhan Kapoor’s film earning declined.

Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra’s film Mirzya hasn’t been able to impress the audience so far. The numbers tell this more clearly. The film has collected a mere Rs. 2.20 crore on the first day and on its day 2 the collections were even lesser. Harshvardhan Kapoor and Saiyami Kher are making their debut with this movie. Good music, vibrant cinematography and use of popular folk tale haven’t managed to do any good to the movie in terms of box office numbers.

Bollywood trade analyst Taran Adarsh shared Mirzya’s latest box office collections. He tweeted, “#Mirzya FAILS to witness growth on Day 2… DECLINED on Sat, after a DISMAL Fri… Fri 2.20 cr, Sat 2.10 cr. Total: ₹ 4.30 cr. India biz.”

Why does Sahiban break Mirza’s arrows? That was the question which motivated Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra and Gulzar to make a Punjabi folk tale into a movie. But, if only the audience could have been as innocent as Mirza. Mehra cleverly tries to give a modern facade to Mirza-Sahiban legend, but couldn’t quite do so. He sets the story in present-day Rajasthan but fails to explore the nuances and layers of the story.

Mehra fails to answer – what led Sahiban to break the arrows of Mirza. He just doesn’t delve into scratching Sahiban’s character in the film. It would have been interesting to see the dilemma and confusion of a woman who is in love with two men at the same time. Then, there are songs and dances which are infused in the films to make it look grand and glittery.

Capturing the complexities of a modern relationship on screen is a tricky task. And when one wants to fit a folk tale in today’s time, challenges become humongous. The audience is clearly not convinced.

          twoline folk story portrait like one painting, movie is not just painting, it must be flow of emotions in words through screenplay, somewhere Rakesh had to work more on deeper script. I watched movie with patience like few scenes but older story was waste of time. Just need to told new story with more depth and flows of drama. Drama could be created around story but Mr Mehra missed this time. It was just a poetry of Gulzar missed Mr Mehra touch.
