The comedy film by Manish Jha, ‘The Legend of Michael Mishra’, received a poor response at the Bollywood Box Office. It stars Aditi Rao, Arshad Warsi, Kayoze Irani and Boman Irani in lead roles. During its first weekend run, the film earned around 50 lakhs.
It was further banned by Haryana and Punjab governments, and that created a major impact on the box office failure. Kunal Sharma was last seen in the critically acclaimed Rahasya, playing the role of Riyaz Noorani. He will now be seen playing a central role in The Legend of Michael Mishra.
He plays the role of a Rockstar named Mithilesh Mathur. The plot suggests that he is the other MM, Michael Mishra’s mix-up mystification. Kunal Sharma revealed that it was pretty exciting working with a celebrated director like Manish Jha.
His guidance helped him get into the nerve of his character, Mithilesh Mathur, the Rockstar. He also learned a lot of from experienced actors like Arshad Warsi, and it was fun working with Aditi Rao Hydari. The actor has made his way internationally besides working in Bollywood.
Meanwhile, 5th August 2016, Friday, went down in history as the day when seven Hindi films released simultaneously. Three of them, however, are restricted to local markets. They are Moods of Crime, PurabKiAzaz, and HaiApnaDil Tog Awara.
However, films like Chauthi Koot, The Legend of Michael Mishra, Fever and Budhia Singh released as well. Chauthi Koot is a national award-winning film which focuses on the communal tension between Sikhs and Hindus during Operation Blue Star of 1984.
This movie could have been greatly political, but it spent more time focusing on fear’s effect on humanity during the national terror. In Chauthi Koot, Singh captures a few personal stories of various families. The film includes its share of troubles.
Singh spoke during National Awards about how many regional films haven’t been favored due to more commercial films in existence. Chauthi Koot struggled to get an Indian release in spite of travelling through film festivals abroad.
Meanwhile, if you watch The Legend of Michael Mishra, you will be instantly reminded of Dibakar Banerjee’s KhoslaKaGhosla. Arshad Warsi plays a kidnapping specialist in this film. He falls in love with the next door girl and tries to change his ways to win the heart of that girl. Budhia Singh- Born to Run stars Manoj Bajpayee and its focuses on the life of the world’s youngest marathon runner.
This runner completed 48 marathons when he was just five years old. In the film, Manoj Bajpayee plays Budhia Singh’s coach and the film focuses on their relationship. Watch this film to get major Iqbal vibes.
Fever is the most sensationalist film to have been released on Friday. It stars Gauhar Khan, Gemma Atkinson, CaterinaMurino and Rajeev Khandelwal. However, the reason for this is because Fever grabbed a lot of headlines for Gemma’s nude photo-shoot and Gauhar Khan’s kiss.
The film is a suspense thriller revolving around a contract killer who lost his identity. The only way he can set things right and realize the crimes he supposedly committed, is by collaborating with a bunch of people on his way.
Meanwhile, there is nothing epic about The Legend of Michael Mishra. It merely focuses on a Patna-based kidnapping overlord. It is one of those forgettable films. However, what might spike your interest is the fact that it was made by the same director who provided us with Mathrubhumi, back in 2003.
