Starring Darshan Kumaar and Piaa Bajpai in the lead roles, Mirza Juuliet is an unconventional kind of a love story which has a lot of drama and violence. The movie portrays the story of two completely different individuals who have different lives. Julie Shukla, who believes in love without commitment, is going to marry a politician’s son who is a complete Casanova. Mirza is a police inspector who has nothing to do with love. Mirza and Julie meet each other in a bizarre circumstance and eventually fall in love without realizing the consequences. Although the movie does not explore the ugliness of the politics of hate beyond that point, but they get entangled in the vicious web of the politicians where there is more violence than peace. Mirza Juuliet is basically a love saga on constant heat. The characters are not afraid of talking about sex and Piaa Bajpai is basically a sexed-up verison of Parineeti Chopra from Ishqzaade. Darshan Kumaar on the other hand looks confused and this is probably his worst performance till date.
The director Rajesh Ram Singh has created a clichéd love story which is extremely tiresome and has a tragic end. There’s a lot of mismanagement in Rajesh’s direction and in spite of the decent run-time it is difficult to sit through till the end. The music is awfully composed and all the songs are boring including the title track. The only positive point in the movie is the cinematography, which is beautifully done and the picturesque landscapes in few scenes will impress you. But it is the kind of movie which can be best avoided. It is not worth your time and money. Happy movie-less weekend guys!
