THE LEGEND OF MICHAEL MISHRA - Once again a weird film forcing you to think that how such projects get approved and then made too without any alarm raised in time. (Review by Bobby Sing)

Vaguely using a heavy word ‘Legend’ in its title, this is yet again a film that makes you wonder that how on earth such kind of scripts get approved and then get made too without any sensible person pointing out the mistake at the right time during the entire process of ‘the making’ before it’s too late.
Beginning with an interesting song reminding your of the phrase ‘Filam shuru ho gayi Mamu’, the story gets revealed as a flashback and remains a completely dull presentation throughout, without any comic, emotional or remotely engaging sequence in its two hours of duration. Based on the same old ‘routine’ plot of a Patna based ‘Bihari’ kidnapping don and his one-sided love affair, the film keeps offering one weird sequence after the other, forcing you to look for the names in the entire team behind the making of such an intolerable project and the producers who actually bought the idea when it was first narrated to them in a story sitting.
Moving into much bigger absurdities post interval with all those court-jail sequences and an interesting twist coming too late towards the end, TLOMM once again reminds us the power of destiny in the life of an exceptional actor like Arshad Warsi, who can be repeatedly seen as the lead hero in these kind of ridiculous projects either due to his own misjudgment or any obligations arising out of his friendly relationships in the industry. But whatever the reason might be, there is no denial to the fact that these ‘foolish films’ have severely damaged his bright career prospects in the recent years undoubtedly. Besides, it’s also painful to see the extremely talented Boman Irani being forced to make a cameo with the beautiful Aditi Rao Hydari and his son Kayoze Irani (playing the young Boman) in a project that is simply good for nothing.
Still sighting two good things in this awful watch, I found the selection of the boy playing the young Arshad Warsi quite interesting along with the eye-catching choreography and execution of the track “Love Letter”. However it was really unbelievable to find the film directed by Manish Jha, the man who gave us a classic ‘eye opener gem’ titled MATRUBHOOMI (2003).
In short, THE LEGEND OF MICHAEL MISHRA is easily one of those ‘badly made’ unfortunate projects that needs to be forgotten as soon as possible by both the viewers as well as the makers together. In fact the film honestly doesn’t deserve any kind of attention even from the people who got it banned in Punjab due to the dialogue mentioning ‘Rishi Valmiki’ and his inspiring transformation.
Rating : 1 / 5 (including an additional 0.5 just for the one song and Aditi Rao Hydari)
