Movie Review: Mickey Virus (2013)

Box Office: Flop

Mickey Virus is a comic thriller set in Delhi, India. When Delhi Police comes across a case revolving around hacking, they begin there search to find a computer expert who can help them crack this case. The head of the police team ACP Siddhanth (Manish Choudhary), stumbles across Mickey Arora (Manish Paul), a lazy but street smart hacker who can actually help them solve the case.

Mickey runs a grocery store in day time and creates virus’s for anti virus companies in the night. He is also head over heals in love with a character he has created in his game called “Kung Fu Chameli” and will do anything to get out of hard work to do whatever he wants to do. Little does he know that ACP Siddhanth accompanied by Inspector Bhalla (Varun Badola) is a tough nut to crack…

Although the plotline and genre bear no semblance to VICKY DONOR, you somehow connect MICKEY VIRUS with Shoojit Sircar’s vastly admired movie simply because of the backdrop [Delhi] and the protagonist who’s looking for shortcuts to get hold of some effortless cash. These similarities apart, VICKY DONOR and MICKEY VIRUS are as dissimilar as apples and peaches in terms of matter and material.
