Maanav is a struggling filmmaker who is unwilling to compromise on the script he has written. His girlfriend Ruchi, a film editor, arranges for him to meet Nitin, a film producer. Maanav suggests a story from the Panchtantra: A woman is caught red-handed with her lover by her husband and yet, she manages to wriggle out of it scot-free! He then creates three more stories based on the same premise. Mirch itself echoes this structure, with four stories mingling with the main narrative. less

Disclaimer : The box office number indicates the approximate lifetime earnings of a film in India.

However it is sufficiently indicative but not exact figures of the box office performance of a film since release.
For the weekend movie goers, the movie Mirch seems not to hit the right spot. The theme of the film seems to be out of the place and even the actors dont seem to know what they are supposed to do and what they are doing. Based on the old concept, presented in a new way the film outlines the story line of short stories of Panchatantra. What the director Vinay Shukla desperately seems to try is that to make a film that stands out and so it does in a rather common way, as it may be said.
The ensemble cast of Konkona Sen Sharma, Raima Sen, Boman Irani, Shreyas Talpade, Arunoday Singh, Shahana Goswami, Rajpal yadav, Sushant Singh, Ila Arun, Pitobash and Prem Chopra try to make the casting attractive but sadly doesnt work for the audience. As a Vinay Shukla's comeback movie after a disastrous plot Koi Mere Dil Se Poochhe which bombed on the movie theaters in 2002.
Arunoday Singh plays Maanav who is a struggling filmmaker and even takes as long as two years to find a taker for his script. His girlfriend Shahana Goswami plays Ruchis character, who is a film editor and tries desperately to arrange a meeting with Sushant Singh as Nitin a film producer. So Nitin doesnt find a viable script and thus Manav narrates a complete story to both Nitin about Maya Raima Sen, the story is about a plought about a wife who gets away after being caught red handed with another man. Arunoday Singh gets to play the husbands character Kashi who is Rajpal Yadav. And so the story develops into a different plot that seems to be as confusing as it can be.
Of all the four stories in the movie by Vinay Shukla's, the first two are set in the ancient times and are for a change smartly written. The twists and turns are witty and palpable. Only what they score on is the humour quotient ably supported by the well timed dialogues.
