Dar Motion Pictures' MICKEY VIRUS has been in the news for it's innovative promos and 'league se hatke' look. MICKEY VIRUS is also getting the eyeballs due to top stars like Salman Khan and Ranbir Kapoor putting in their bit for the promotion of the film. And so the music of the film becomes very important for upping the prospects of the film further. So let's check out the audio.

''Pyaar China Ka Maal Hai'', composed and penned by Hanif Shaikh, is indeed a humorous take on love in current times. Manish Paul's nasal overtones are funny and he renders the song quite well, putting in his characteristic hilarious touches. But it's the lyrics that are the USP of the track, comparing love to ''China Ka Maal'' which offers no guarantee or warranty.

Sufi romantic raga based ''Tose Naina'' is a lovely composition rendered by Arijit Singh who does full justice in his husky and base macho vocals. The lyrics are inspired by the evergreen sufiana number, Amir Khusro's ''Chaap Tilak Sab Cheeni Tose Naina Milaike'', but has been used well to fit the romantic situation.


Soon you have a love angle being forced into the script. The girl is so plastic that she measures the smile on her lips for fear of her face cracking. Even real-life college students will have a better chemistry than these two.

Before interval, the script changes gear. There is more drama and then a lengthy explanation of how, when, why and who.

Debutante director Saurabh Verma has a half-baked script in his hand. A little more research and hatke presentation would have made the difference between a one star rating and three stars.

There have been films which are daringly different who have found an audience. A WEDNESDAY is one, VICKY DONOR is another. In both these films, the acting too was terrific, apart from the scripting and screenplay.

No Dilli cop is as daft as to believe that a simple computer with a 4GB ram and 1TB hard disk, along with a graphic card and other essentials will cost Rs 1,19,000.

I don't think a supposed computer genius either, would also believe that anyone, leave alone a Dilli cop, would be so stupid to buy that line of his.

Therein lies the flaw in MICKEY VIRUS; the writing is plain juvenile. In the end, the writer feels the need of explaining each and every scene that preceded the climax. The audience too, is taken to be as daft.

The acting is best described as taxing, sometimes plastic. Save Varun Badola; he is the only bright upgrade in this virus-ridden computer!

And pray, how is it that a 'fit-as-a-commando' international computer hacker (who jumps from terraces and glides down pipes, and jumps through windows) not able to see that his attacker is in front of him, not behind?

That's the story; two international hackers are invited to India to hack into something big. Both are killed. Then this cop wants to hire a hacker who will help him crack the mystery of the hackers who have left behind no identity. He also wants to nail the killers. Manish Chaudhary, the cop goes to Manish Paul the hacker.
