MICKEY VIRUS - Apart from the unconvincing climax it is a decent metro entertainer overall. [TTP (To The Point) Review by Bobby Sing]

25 Oct, 2013 | Movie Reviews / 2013 Releases

A project completely dependent upon the already famous comic persona of TV actor-anchor, Manish Paul, MICKEY VIRUS is a fairly entertaining film if we keep aside its awkward and unconvincing climax ruining the fine build-up. It has an enjoyable first half, mostly providing the funny moments through its Computer-ish dialogues, having a strong youth appeal using the Delhi ambience, which also lacks the perfection as seen in VICKY DONOR). Yes, the humour element in it takes a back seat since the film turns into a thrilling crime mystery post interval, still the racy pace doesn’t let you feel the missing factor and the new twists in the storyline keep the interest alive. However as the secret is revealed, it doesn’t turn out to be that convincing or hard hitting at all, hampering the overall impact of an engrossing watch as it ends.
Thankfully made on a fresh subject, the film begins on a shaky note but then goes on to deliver the promised humor constantly, mainly through its well written lines. Revolving around a computer hacker caught in a messy trap, it has some cool graphics, better than many other films of the past using the same element. At times romance disturbs the progression but the justification arrives later as the con begins and there are very few drops in its narration before the long climax. Both the background score & cinematography keep the energy going along with a few above average songs including “Sajna Ve”.
As expected, Manish Paul impressively is the part of almost all the entertaining sequences of the film and he once again proves his excellent comic timing in its debut film too. Elli Avram looks stunning but doesn’t get much to do as per the script (except serving the glamour quotient of the film, as required). Out of the friendly group, Puja Gupta gets the maximum scenes and she is fine, whereas Raghave Kakkar, Vikesh Kumar and Nitesh Pandey (Professor) are just all right. Manish Chaudhari repeatedly delivers a similar kind of act as seen in his previous films but the one actor who comes up as a clear winner among the supporting cast is Varun Badola, who is simply lovable as the assisting inspector.
As the first notable attempt from director Saurabh Varma, MICKEY VIRUS mainly scores for its novel subject, well worked upon lingo, entertaining first half and Manish Paul. However with a different & severely edited climax it could have been a much better venture for sure. Also with a subject majorly dealing with the city culture (hugely dependent on gadgets), it is going to find fewer takers in the interiors and smaller centers. So keeping this fact and the film’s fresh, out of the routine subject in mind, I would like to rate it as a nice, well attempted metro entertainer, just missing the target due to its final reels.
Rating : 3 / 5 (With a hope that it doesn't turn out to be an inspired version of a foreign flick later.)
