: A professor of psychology enters into a daring pact with his student that leads to a bizarre set of circumstances.
Life's not going too well for Professor Jay Verma (Parvin Dabbas). While he is struggling at work, things are not good at home as well. His wife Tanya (Shanti Akkineni) is having an affair with Ronnie (Dhruv Bali), a student at his University. Not one to be cuckolded by his student, Jay decides to kill two birds with one stone and hatches a sinister plot with Ronnie.
'Mirror Game' is a psychological thriller that deals with serious conditions like Schizophrenia and Multiple Personality Disorder. The makers however, do not really explain what's going through the mind of a person suffering from them. Mental illness is used to make the film more 'exciting', which is insensitive and doesn't work either. You don't see Jay struggling with the phantoms in his brain. He continues to be a highly functioning professor who can plot heinous crimes like a mastermind, even when he is off medication.
The characters in the film, be it Ronnie, or the police psychologist Dr Roy (Pooja Batra), Detective Shenoy (Sneha Ramachander) don't have any real depth. You don't connect with them or their two-line backstories. The only positive aspect is the way it has been shot. The tone of the film gives you, at times, a sense of urgency and doom. Sadly, that's asking too much as there is no payback because the climax is predictable. For a psychological thriller there are quite a few loose ends tied up crudely which make 'Mirror Game' a rather dull watch.
