Mirror Mirror Movie Review

Ratings:2/5 Reviewer:Rajeev Masand Site: IBNLive(CNN IBN)

If there’s one thing to be said about ‘Mirror Mirror’, Tarsem Singh’s campy retelling of the Grimm Brothers fairytale Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, it’s that everyone in it seems to be having so much fun! Particularly Julia Roberts, who stars as the Evil Queen, from whose perspective the story is told.I’m going with two out of five for ‘Mirror Mirror’. The film serves up some striking visuals that’ll be hard to get out of your head. If only there was more to it.

Mirror, mirror on the wall, who’s the fairest of them all? Well, this time it’s not Snow White, but the evil Queen herself. Yes, there have been many Snow White fairly tales that have cast their spell on Hollywood’s silver screen in the past, but then never ever have we witnessed this fairy tale from the POV of the evil Queen. This is perhaps your chance to know what happens to the not-so-fairy-Queen ( Julia Roberts) in fairyland. Agreed it’s new. Agreed it’s different. Agreed it’s year 2012. And agreed it’s the fairy tale from the evil Queen’s perspective. But then is this Hollywood’s Snow White tale really the fairest of them all? Got to wait and watch, specially when there’s another Snow White (and the Huntsman) coming soon….

Mirror Mirror, Tarsem Singh Dhandwar’s take on the fairy tale of Snow White, has not only a happy ending, but also the typical ‘Bollywood ending’.A film like this one could easily get bogged down by excessive use of visual effects and technical wizardry. But Singh keeps it as real as possible and employs these elements sparingly, like during the mirror scenes and the one in which Snow White combats the beast. The landscape, like in all Singh’s movies, is breathtaking. Keeping in mind its target audience, the language is a mix of casual and Queen’s English.The dwarves should be a hit with the kids; one of them, appropriately named Grimm, goes on to write a book. Would that be Snow White and the Seven Dwarves…?

SNOW White re-imagined as a romance, the Queen as a woman desperate for a suitor, the Prince as a helpless guy needing rescue, and the Princess as a woman capable of spunk and some valour. India-born Tarsem Singh has fun with his version of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, letting us both mock and sympathise with a rapidly ageing Queen hanging on to her youth and way of life, as a blossoming princess threatens to take all away. The disappointment is the over-emphasis on the listless romance and the smallness of the woods, which look no bigger than a few small square feet of snow
