Mirzya starring Harshvardhan Kapoor and Saiyami Kher fared consistently poor on the third day also. The film collected Rs 2.10 crores on Saturday and Rs 2.20 crore on Sunday — this is as much as it made on Friday. Mirzya has collected Rs 6.50 crores in three days. Post Sunday, it will be interesting to see how the film manages to survive the weekdays.
The film is not attracting audience despite festive season going on. People are on long weekend leaves celebrating Durga Puja and Dussehra. What could be the better time to go out and watch movies with families? However, none of those factors is apparently helping out Mirzya. The coming few days would be crucial for Mirzya. Trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted, “#Mirzya Fri 2.20 cr, Sat 2.10 cr, Sun 2.20 cr. Total: ₹ 6.50 cr. India biz. DISAPPOINTING!”
Interestingly, all the glitz and glamour surrounding Mirzya’s promotion has so far failed to do any good. The whole Kapoor family came out in support of the film and lauding Harsh and Saiyami’s performance. However, the duo hasn’t got any impressive reviews from critics for their performance. Many are complaining that romance – the chemistry between lead pair — is completely missing. And Harsh’s visage is hidden behind his long beard whole time. Others, after seeing the film say that it could have been a wrong debut choice for new actors.
The film also stars actors Om Puri and Art Malik. Om Puri has hardly 3-4 scenes and according to some critics, his performance is wasted in this film.
There were no big releases this week besides Tutak Tutak Tutiya. And people seem to be in no mood to squander their money in the name of watching some magnificent cinematography and music penned by Gulzar.
