The much-awaited official trailer of Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra’s film Mirzya is out, and with fantastical locations, beautiful cinematography and soul-searing music, it leaves viewers mesmerized.
The film launches two star kids – Anil Kapoor’s son Harshvardhan Kapoor and Anupam Kher’s daughter Saiyami Kher – in the lead, and the official trailer gives a glimpse of the intense chemistry that viewers can expect between the two actors.
Inspired by the folk tale of “the legend of Mirza – Sahiban”, Mirzya is an epic action-romance set in contemporary times. The film unfolds filled with heightened drama and action-packed sequences in the visually rich terrain of Rajasthan, contrasted with flashes of the fantastical universe of the folklore set in the awe-inspiring landscape of Ladakh.
What hits you first, as the trailer starts playing is the haunting music by Shankar, Ehsaan and Loy, coupled with singer Daler Mehndi’s piercing voice.

The visually stunning trailer clearly defines the two timelines, setting the stage for a passionate love story that spans lifetimes/ages. While you get a sense of the modern Rajputana Rajasthan in the current timeline, the legend portays a very clannish, Dothraki-looking (Game of Thrones fans will relate to this) Harshvardhan Kapoor set against the stark, but gorgeous Ladakh landscape. There is even a scene that’s reminiscent of the Amitabh Bachchan-Sridevi starrer Khuda Gawah.
In effect, this trailer does its job of hooking viewers enough to want to immediately book tickets when the movie is released on October 7. What also comes through are sparks from the two debutants, which shows much promise with respect to their acting careers.
The film, written by Gulzar, will also see Om Puri, Art Malik and KK Raina in pivotal roles.
