The trailer of Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra-directed film, Mirzya, which was released on Thursday blending Rajasthan’s folk charm with modern technology, promising us a different kind of experience.
The director who gave us films like Rang De Basanti, Bhaag Milkha Bhaag and Delhi 6 will now tell us the famous folklore of Mirzya Sahiban, with a refreshing twist.
The piercing voice of Daler Mehndi s0aring over bare, sandy hills, aided by Shankar Mahadevan and Sain Zahoor set against folk rhythms and Rajasthani dancing to the accompaniment of ancient music, is capable of taking us to a bygone era.
It offers all the promise of another hit with sophisticated action sequences.
Starring Harshvardhan Kapoor, son of actor Anil Kapoor, Saiyami Kher and Anuj Chaudhary, the trailer takes us back to a distant era.
”In my film, we play out the folklore, as such, so there’s one part of the story and then the folklore in a way kind of resonates and echoes and lands on today’s time… you know the essence of it. And mostly it plays out, I would say like a good 70% of it plays out now in contemporary Rajasthan ( in 2016) with contemporary actors,” director Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra said in an interview. – CINEWS
