Bollywood hunk Hrithik Roshan is back again as a superhero with the film ‘Krrish 3’. The movie has released today across the world. Priyanka Chopra and Kangana Ranaut were seen as the leading ladies while Rakesh Roshan is the director. The film is coming in with high expectations, so let us see how this movie is.
Dr, Rohit Mehra (Hrithik Roshan) , his son Krishna aka Krish (Hrithik) and Priya live together happily. Krishna keeps losing one job after another, as he is preoccupied with saving the world as Krish.
Their peaceful lives are disturbed by Kaal (Vivek Oberoi). Kaal is a brilliant but evil scientist who experiments with mutation, DNA fusion etc. In order to increase the profits of his pharmaceutical company, he unleashes a deadly virus on Mumbai and only he has the antidote.
But Kaal’s plans are disrupted when Dr. Rohit Mehra succeeds in coming up with a plan that stops the virus in its tracks. An enraged Kaal wants to find out how Dr Rohit succeeded in coming up with an antidote and he dispatches his evil aide Kaya (Kangana Ranaut) to find out the truth.
Unexpected things are revealed in the process and Krish must now fight for his family and stop the evil Kaal. How he does that is what ‘Krish 3’ is all about.
Plus Points :
Hrithik Roshan is quite handsome as usual and his physique is impressive. He has played two characters in the film. He is good as Krish. Though his performance as Rohit Mehra is a bit over the top, the variation he has shown between the two characters is quite impressive. Priyanka Chopra is ok.
Some scenes and stunts in the film might appeal to kids.
Minus Points :
The movie’s plot and characters have been lifted from a number of Hollywood films like X Men, Spiderman etc. The mavars (desi version of mutants) look pretty irritating.
Kangana Ranaut is a beautiful and talented actress. It pains to see her in stupid roles like the one she essayed in Krish 3. The talented and intense Vivek Oberoi has been wasted completely in the poorly scripted role of Kaal.
The film’s pace is very slow and there is hardly an exciting moment in the film. A superhero film should have great action sequences and riveting screenplay. Krish 3 has neither of the two qualities.
Except for a few VFX scenes, most of the CGI shots look very tacky. In fact, ‘Krrish’ has better visual effects than ‘Krrish 3’. Songs are a big minus for the film.None of them succeed in making a positive impact on viewers.
Technical Aspects :
Cinematography is just very average. Editing could have been better, but given the substandard plot and screenplay, perhaps there was nothing much to do. Rajesh Roshan’s music is a big handicap for this movie. Background score by Salim- Suleiman is very average.
As a director, Rakesh Roshan has failed with ‘Krrish 3’. The film does not have what it takes to be an entertaining superhero film.
Krrish 3 is a kichdi of successful Hollywood films, but it fails to make a positive impact. The film has neither the sweet innocence of ‘Koi Milgaya’ nor the entertainment of ‘Krrish’. Hrithik Roshan and Vivek Oberoi have tried their best to salvage the movie, but a weak script and poor screenplay just drive it right into the ground. In the end, ‘Krrish 3’ is just another boring and lame film.
