Mumbai Mirror – A complete Review

TNI Bureau: As the name provides ‘Mumbai Mirror’ is all about Mumbai, the nexus between powerful, corrupt dance bar mafias and the Mumbai police. Starting from script to performances, the film has tried to copy some super hit films released in the last couple of years, but is a complete disaster.

The effort of Sachin Joshi, who wants to shoulder the film, is a complete failure. In fact, if performing in a Bollywood film was that much easy, anybody you pick up from the crowd could be a Salman Khan or Akshaya Kumar.  But reality is something else, something very tough.

In the script only the film wanted to take advantage from the publicity of the earlier films like wanted, Dabangg, Singham and Ardhasatya. So, being busy in the attempt to put extracts of these films, the film misses to put something of its own. Thus, the script does not deserve any admiration.

We are not convinced with portraying of the central character in the film, where the cop perhaps feels that there is no bad or good cop, but a cop is only a cop. Yet, sniffing of cocaine by a police officer is not acceptable anyway.

Then, coming to performance, Abhijeet’s retorts are accompanied by a “Dum pe lakdi” song and music, but it is purely no entertaining. Sometimes he wants to act like Salman in Dabbang and sometimes like Ajay Devgan in Singham, but fails miserably in both the approach.

Gihani Khan, the female lead wanted to sensitize the audience with her sexy show, but it also turns terrible after a point.

Vimala Raman is okay as the as the journalist-turned-nurse Jia. Also, Prashant Narayanan is wasted in his role as Inspector Prashant.

Prakash Raj may be seen as the only actor who could have saved the sinking boat, but his approach has also started to offer less entertainment as the same thing is repeated in several films now. But still if anybody has done something in the film to catch the audience, then that is Prakash Raj.

Aditya Pancholi is alright as Durrani. Mahesh Manjrekar is good as Gaitonde, the corrupt cop.

Music of the film is at par with the performance, not interesting anyway. In whole, a distorted script, bumpy characters and a poor lead actor don’t tally up to any points for the director. Anand Raj Anand and Amjad Nadeem’s music is alright. Cinematography of the film cannot be blamed. Editing could be better, but in the absence of any strong output from the performers, editing has nothing big to contribute.

So, the film can be taken as a masala film up to some extent and hence can be good for the single screen audience, but not for the multiplex circuit.

The hero plays a cop, sporting an extra-large moustache like Aamir Khan in ‘Talaash’. His punch line may be seen as a step brother of Salman’s punch line in ‘Wanted’, ‘Mein agar ek baar commitment kar liya toh khud kaa bhi nehin suntaa.’ Here the hero mouths a dialogue ‘mujhe sirf ek cheez se darr lagta hain, ke mujhe kisi cheez se darr nahi lagta’.
