'The Legend Of Michael Mishra' Movie Review: This Arshad Warsi-Aditi Rao Hydari Starrer Shows You How Not To Fall In Love!
Cast: Arshad Warsi, Boman Irani, Aditi Rao Hydari, Kayoze Irani

Director: Manish Jha

Producers:Kishor Arora, Shareen Mantri Kedia

Writers: Manish Jha, Radhakrishnan, Sneha Nihalani, Anshuman Chaturvedi (Dialogues)

Claps: Arshad Warsi who manages to bring a smile on your face in a scene or two in this otherwise lacklustre film

Slaps: Clichéd Plot, Weak Direction, Unimpressive Music

What's New: How a simple 'Hello' can make someone fall head over heels in love with you ( No, we ain't kidding here!)

Popcorn Refill: Anytime when you finish your munchies and want a refill. We bet you won't miss anything crucial.

Plot: A young Michael Mishra, who is a tailor by profession, ends up accidentally killing a small-time gangster thus earning the respect of the locals. While being pursued by the police the boy comes across a pretty damsel who is busy practising her dance moves underneath a tree. Cupid strikes and Michael loses his heart to her (in a slow-mo scene), only to be whisked away by the police.

Years pass by and our hero grows up to be a 'lallantop' kidnapper specialist Michael (Arshad Warsi). But he is still in search of the dancing girl who stole away his heart in childhood. With the help of his side-kick Half Pant (Kayoze Irani), he finally recognizes her as Varsha Shukla (Aditi Rao Hydari), when she participates in a talent hunt named 'Bihar Is Full Of Talent' to fulfil her dream of becoming a Bollywood actress.

Later to impress his girl, Michael shifts in her neighbouring building to start his 'Ishq Di Gaadi' . As expected, feelings are reciprocated, 'luv letters' are exchanged. Soon Varsha says 'hum isse pyaar ko ek naam dena chahte hai..lekin usse pehle aap thoda sudhar jaaye'!

Folks be like 'Kutte ki poonch seedhi ho sakti hai lekin Michael jaise aadmi kabhi nahin sudhar sakta'. Will our Romeo prove the world wrong?

Performances: Arshad Warsi who is generally known to hit the bull's eye with his impeccable comic timing, fails to save the audience from sinking into boredom this time. Barring a scene or two, the actor pulls off a repetitive act that we have seen in his last couple of releases.

Those who are expecting a crackler of a performance from Boman Irani, be prepared to be disappointed! The veteran actor has nothing much to do in the film. (Spoiler Alert: Neither Arshad nor Kayoze Irani share a frame with him)

Kayoze Irani plays 'Michael' Arshad's side-kick but alas! he too has been saddled with a caricature-like role which has been breeding in Bollywood since ages.

Aditi Rao Hydari looks pretty in every frame. But then why does her Bihari accent have to sound so weird? Can you believe the girl even breaks into a jig to a song describing a 'cow'?

Direction: Manish Jha, the man behind the gut-wrenching 'Matrubhoomi- A Nation Without Women' and 'Anwar' is back donning the directorial hat after a long sabbatical. This time he revealed that he wanted to make a 'socially irrelevant' film. Checkbox tick. Sadly the flick lacks the zing and entertainment quotient. The world of Michael Mishra is full of caricatures and loud characters that just make empty noises. Another big no-no is the mediocre writing, flat narrative and the lame jokes that derives neither the chuckles nor creates any interesting moment.

Jha takes a dig at several things right from talent hunts to clichéd Bollywood moments but his attempts are shallow and you fail to remain engrossed in his story-telling.

The film's music doesn't stay with you for long. However Aditi's groovy number 'Luv Letter' might find some takers.

Combo-on-offer: Desi romance+ Boring jokes+ Clichéd plot

Verdict: We give 'The Legend Of Michael Mishra' TIGHT SLAPS. In the film Michael has a 'FEEL GOOD' signboard in his den. Bad luck guys, that's just not the case after you watch this ridiculous film!
