Mirror Mirror Movie Review | Classic Fairy Tale Movies

Mirror Mirror is a comedy fantasy film based on classic fairy tale Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. It is one of the best film of Director Tarsem Singh Dhandwar's till date.

A comic reprise of the Snow White legend, Mirror Mirror tells the story of an evil queen, who steals control of a kingdom and an exiled princess enlists the help of seven resourceful rebels to win back her birthright.

Snow White's (Lily Collins) evil step-mother (Julia Roberts) has taken over her father's lovely kingdom and turned the once happy place into a dark, poor and cold place where the subjects are over taxed. As Snowhite turns 18, the step-mother orders her to be killed. She survives and with the help of seven dwarfs tries to bring prosperity back to the kingdom and win a prince's heart.

It also subtly puts some serious political themes in a very light-hearted manner. Snow White in this version is not just beauty, but also physical strength and beauty as she fights off her step-mother (feminist themes), the ruler of the kingdom, literally. 

Thus its message: rulers come and go, but justice must remain a constant. When it is not, one is duty bound to fight.


Julia does a good job of an evil, jealous step-mother while Lily has the charms of an Audrey Hepburn in her young days. The seven dwarfs, played by people you have seen for long in movies and on TV, do their job immaculately.

The story of Mirror Mirror is not new but the screenplay is done with plenty of originality and look of this movie is fantastic. Mirror Mirror is an enjoyable movie for whole family.
