Mirch is an adaptation of the Panchatantra, that unlocks a woman’s heart and confounds her mind, leading every man to think over her integrity and question her unstained character.
The film revolves around a nascent filmmaker Manav, who suffers failures and disregards from his superiors in the film industry but is dogged to create a movie which will elevate the industry to a level never reached before. Based on the period Panchatantra he then creates a story following 4 tales, each of which encloses sex as its vital theme. Manav poses questions to men on what they’d do if they found their spouse in bed with another guy. Would they let it go? Or would they go on with their lives without being pretentious? Raima Sen and Konkana Sen Sharma are the leading ladies who depend on eroticism and do not hesitate to show off their body to all and sundry.
The film depicts woman’s astuteness in gaining pleasure and tries to expose their slackened character. The perceived character in the film has let to question woman’s potency to acquire the things they love via their body instead of on their own merit, and also incites to question the integrity of men. Mirch is definitely a film to think on those lines.
With not-so-good content, the film scores an average and endeavors to appeal to the proverb ‘Face is the Mirror of Mind’ by negatively stereotyping women and their drive towards contentment and pleasure. Konkana and Raima have acted well while the other co-actors were also watchable. Direction and screenplay are appreciable but a better story could have worked for the film.
However, Mirch didn’t taste as hot and spicy as expected but can work for Panchatantra fans.
