Dhanush and Shruti Haasan have come together for the movie ‘3’ and this movie has been directed by Rajinikanth’s daughter Aishwarya Dhanush. The movie has been produced by Natti Kumar. Let us see how the movie stacks up
Ram (Dhanush) is the darling son of Bhanupriya and Prabhu. He falls in love at a very young age with Janani ( Shruti ) and this is opposed vehemently by their parents. But in unexpected circumstances, they marry each other. After marriage, as they start building a life together, fate deals a cruel blow and the story takes unexpected twists. Ram is afflicted with Bipolar Disorder and he suffers from extreme mood swings. As Ram and Janani battle this disease, will they be able to set their lives in order? Will Ram be cured of his disease?
Plus Points :
The movie has had good exposure due to the runaway success of the ‘Kolaveri’ song and this has guaranteed a lot of interest in the film. Dhanush has portrayed two very different roles in this movie and his performance is good. Shruti Haasan looks good and she has done a good job.
The first half of the movie is slightly better when compared to the second half. ‘Kannulada’ and ‘Pove Po’ have been shot well and they are good to listen to.
Minus Points :
The story and the treatment will not appeal to Telugu film lovers at all. The first scene of the film itself sends a rude shock to the viewer and its a rapid downhill ride from there. Though Dhanush has performed well, it is tough for our people to accept him as a hero. Shruti Haasan keeps weeping throughout the film and this is downright depressing to watch.
There are many loopholes in the screenplay and narration is poor. There is absolutely zero entertainment in the movie for casual movie lovers and viewers end up getting frustrated. There is no synchronization between the first half and the second half.
Technical Aspects :
Editing is atrocious and that is a major culprit. Dialogues are quite poor. Cinematography is decent. Production values are good. Aishwarya Dhanush fails to make an impression with her direction skills and there is no conviction in her narration.
If you are a casual movie lover looking for some entertainment, stay away from ‘3’. The movie has absolutely nothing for you. If you are a hardcore fan of Tamil tragedy cinemas, you can try and risk a watch.
