Krrish 3…The hype, the anticipation and over the hill superhero expectations finally made way for a movie that turned out to be a disappointing and a mercilessly boring watch. The story failed miserably to keep me and my friends engaged.The disappointment was acceptable as we had expected the same, given our preconceived opinion about Bollywood films trying to swim in troubled waters. Then RaOne and know Krrish 3, both shamelessly showcase the ineptness of Bollywood in pulling off such superhero movies. The genre is surely not Bollywood’s cup of tea yet. The movie was two and a half hours of boredom, unexciting action and blatant, shameless theft of Hollywood.
Spiderman, Superman, Batman! The plagiarism was (as usual) so open and so easy to guess. Poor and untimely songs made the flavor even sourer. Hrithik seemed to be the lone fighter with his good looks, acting and as always with his benchmark physique and dance moves. But it was too bad a superhero plot for even sturdy shoulders of Hrithik to carry. Priyanka Chopra served no real purpose as is the case with actresses who just for namesake are tagged as heroines. But hey, PC’s contribution was invaluable!! Isn't her giving birth to a child (to be noted: that also a boy) the ticket for Rakesh uncle’s next in the series? Hope it’s not.
The baddies were equally bad. Maanwars, the desi name surely didn't hide the shamelessly stolen concept. Kangana as Kaya with her uncorrected diction ensured she caught attention at least by the attire she wore. Flashing her cleavage and her barely clad body seemed to be her prime motto in every scene. Her falling in love with Krishna (Hrithik) in a flash again showed that Indian movies simply cannot do without love. Shooting an entire song in a desert terrain in which Hrithik and Kangana come up wearing different costumes with every passing second was a bit too much for Kangana’s slight sense of voluptuousness. The other three mutants frankly speaking were completely spineless!! Perhaps Kaal needed to invest a little more of his brain while creating these idiotic maanwars. An action sequence of Krrish with one of them (the frog one) was highly stupide. The maanwar with his frog like ability was time and again showed in helpless light when Krrish repeatedly pulled his protruding tongue to the extreme!! And the other maanwars were just left as mere spectators as if devoid of any significant power. Vivek Oberoi as the main villain KAAL equally fizzled out as the rest. He should perhaps continue playing gangster roles which actually he does the best. Nor did his created mutants have enough power and nor did he himself. Even after beating invalidity, his powers (which he highly boosted off) should have produced a more interesting climax, but the final action scenes were really unappetising. And last but not the least, a big ZERO for the crappy costume of Kaal. It seemed to be made of trash and it deserves to be thrown in trash.
Director Rakesh Roshan ensured that the movie didn’t miss the much priced Indian emotions of fatherly, brotherly bonds and concerns about one’s child. Advertising A-Z brands seemed to be the only success of the movie. Talks about the film earning 1000 crore can be easily be dismissed as the film itself. It will be good if Krrish doesn’t expect anything in return for his goodwill.
The consolation to takeaway : “the superhero is within you”!! That is the thing to believe in, as it's tough to find any superhero stuff in Krrish 3 for sure. L
