Mirch (2010) *HQ*

Mirch” is meant to be a ‘tikhi’, spicy and delectable account of sex, stolen pleasures and furtive philandering during times of day-to-day stress. Instead it turns out to be one of those half-cooked exotic dishes, more tempting for what it promises than actually delivers.Vinay Shukla’s last film “Koi Mere Dil Se Poochhe”, which came eight years ago is best forgotten. However his film prior to that “Godmother” stood tall and imposing primarily because of Shabana Azmi’s preponderant performance as a politician in rural Gujarat who rips the male bastion apart with her no-nonsense approach to life and politics.

Cast: Shreyas Talpade, Konkona Sen Sharma, Raima Sen

“Mirch” is about the politics of sex. Set in two different time zones, the contemporary and ‘period’, it takes potshots at the male gaze as it falls on female sexuality. Each of the four stories has a protagonist, played by Raima Sen and Konkona Sen Sharma in two stories each, with a high libido level that they do nothing to hide. In each story, the woman is caught red-handed by her husband doing ‘it’ with a lover. How the sexually-liberated woman in each story wriggles out of the bedroom crisis forms the core comicality in the quartet of stories.

The four stories, apparently derived from the ancient Panchtantra tales and their designedly delicious denouement are neither convincing, nor funny enough to be outrageously fable-like. The stories just about manage to bring a smile on our faces.Not that Shukla can be faulted for his intelligent and astute handling of such an audacious idea. Strong sexual gestures specially in a woman make for very unpoetic cinema. Love when linked to lust tends to lose its lyrical lustre.

Shukla shoots his two heroines with a certain sensitivity, although there’s not much room in the satirical tales of cuckoldry for subtlety he builds room for tender touches and fleeting moments of arresting intimacy.
