Director Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra's Bollywood movie Mirzya, starring Harshvardhan Kapoor and Saiyami Kher, has received positive reviews from the audience.
Read: Mirzya critics review
Mirzya is an epic fantasy, romantic thriller for which Gulzar has written the story, which is based on the Punjabi folklore of the tragic romances of Mirza-Sahiban. The movie deals with the story of the star-crossed lovers, which is set in two parallel worlds -- real and fantastical. The lovers grapple with forces that seek to keep them apart in both the avatars. They discover that even a moment of true love is worth an entire lifetime.
Harshvardhan Kapoor and Saiyami Kher, who have made their acting debut in Bollywood with this flick, have played the lead pair in Mirzya and they have delivered decent performances in the movie. The sizzling chemistry between the couple is the highlight of the film. Anuj Choudhry, Om Puri, Art Malik, KK Raina, and Anjali Patil, who are seen in pivotal roles, are also assets of this flick.
Mirzya has brilliant production values that are on par with Hollywood standards. Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy's amazing music, Paweł Dyllus' stunning visuals, superb choreography of action scenes and brilliant storytelling are the attractions on the technical front, say the viewers.
We bring you some film-goers' verdict shared on Twitter and Facebook. Here is the live update of Mirzya movie review by audience:

#Mirzya is based on the tale of Mirza-Sahibaan, one of the most important romantic folk tales of Punjab. Lohaaro ki gali hai ye: Gulzar's enigmatic words weave magic in the opening scene. #Mirzya. The classroom scenes will take you back to school days and remind you of your childhood love. #Mirzya. Moving back and forth in time is something you'll have to expect if it's a #RakeyshOmPrakashMehra directorial. #Mirzya. Horse riding scenes are beautifully shot. Such detailing. #Mirzya. While #HarshvardhanKapoor is pulling off a controlled act as Mohnish, @SaiyamiKher plays Suchitra,a chirpy girl. #Mirzya #Mirzya is more like a musical or a visually stunning stage play Look out for the scene where @HarshKapoor_ goes to meet @SaiyamiKher's on-screen father. So convincing. #Mirzya #Mirzya is a beautiful film shot and directed with technical sensibilities. #Mirzya sets a fine example for classic poetry in motion but doesn't really strike the right chord when it comes to romance. #Mirzya is not everyone's cup of tea. If you've poetic sensibilities and a certain love for fine couplets, you'll like it, else not

Attempt Is 2 Make A Work Of Art.But Tremendous Form N Convoluted Substance Don't Make For Perfect Marriage N That's The Problem With #Mirzya. The ScreenPlay Is Confusing,N Despite The Epic Efforts The Writing Of #Mirzya Aims At A Selected Audience Or For A Pat On One's Own Back... A lot Of Effort Has Gone Into The Music Of #Mirzya N It Shows But Does It Connect With U As An Audience...It Didn't Connect With Me At least. Anjali Patil Is Terrific In A Supporting Role...Now Here's An Actor Who Impresses Tremendously Even When She Doesn't Even Try.@MirzyaTheFilm. #Mirzya Has Great locations,Wow CameraWork,Sum Fine Performances But As A Whole It Fails To Impress.Its A Beautiful Painting Meant 4 A Few!!

#Mirzya Review Mirzya isn't a typical Bollywood film. Its Content is very Unique. Fabulous performance by @HarshKapoor_ & @SaiyamiKher. The Main USP of #Mirzya is @RakeyshOmMehra's direction. His direction is outstanding. Screenplay is also catchy. My rating - 3*/5*
