Movie Review: The Legend of Michael Mishra (2016)

Box Office: TBA

TheLegendOfMichaelMishraThe film starts off with FP aka Full Pant (Boman Irani), the owner of ‘Michael Mishra Dhaba’, telling a bunch of tourists about the ‘legendary’ greatness of Michael Mishra (Arshad Warsi). FP then, recalls the entire flashback incidents that transformed a simple tailor Michael Mishra into a ‘tailor-made’ Michael Mishra. FP states that, Michael Mishra, when on duty as a tailor, accidentally kills his customer. What follows after that are series of incidents that transforms the simple Michael Mishra into a dreaded don, who becomes a self confessed ‘kidnapping specialist’. But when Michael Mishra ultimately finds his lady love Varsha ‘Hello’ Shukla (Aditi Rao Hydari) after years of incessant searching, he plans to change himself into a better human being, at her ‘insistence’. The very moment he decides to change himself, he surrenders himself before the law, which then, punishes him with an imprisonment of a whopping 500 years, which, later, gets changed to lifetime imprisonment in a ruthless jail. Amidst all this, Michael Mishra’s sidekick Half Pant (Kyroze Irani) stands by him like a rock. Does Michael Mishra ever muster the courage to tell those three magic words to Varsha Shukla, does Varsha Shukla selflessly tell Michael Mishra to change his lifestyle or is it more than what meets the eye is what forms the rest of the film.
