Today I went to watch a movie merely because I was bored and I was completely prepared for a snooze fest in Krrish 3. Considering the fact that I didn’t like Krrish much and thought it was a kids film, all I was expecting today was good popcorn and Hrithik’s hot abs. Though I wasn’t dissappointed in those two areas, the movie as a whole blew me away. I now truly believe that India’s first superhero has arrived. This movie had a powerful and engaging story line, expert direction and screenplay, marvellous acting, okay – okay songs, and superb effects!The story line has been carefully set taking all the aspects of Rohit’s life from Koi Mil Gaya and Krishna’s life from Krrish. It makes all the weird, unreal sciency stuff perfectly believable and keeps moving forward without boring you at any point. When it comes to the graphics, the quality of the movie is outstanding and it is so good that the entire team which worked on the special effects were Indians itself. No help has been taken from Hollywood for the movie and that’s just splendid!
The acting was beyond fantastic. Hrithik Roshan has outdone himself this time by perfectly portraying that childish genius of Rohit, which we all fell in love with in Koi Mil Gaya and that smart, confident, youthful character of Krishna. How he managed to do scene after scene with two roles so different from each other is something I can not completely understand. Priyanka Chopra performed the half a role she had well. The person who did an unexpectedly good job here was Kangana Ranaut. Her portrayal of Kaya, who undergoes so many different transformations during the movie is just splendid. I think this might be her best work yet. Vivek Oberoi on the other hand didn’t do much justice to his role, especially in the second half. For the most part he looked as if he was very uncomfortable in that steel costume of his and couldn’t walk properly. The villain’s costume was probably one of the worst designed costumes ever.
Coming to the negatives of the movie, the music sounded very old and except for the scenes where Hrithik Roshan dances (and that’s just in one song) the rest of the songs weren’t shot well either. Kangana Ranaut wears some very weird costumes in one of the songs. Silly me, I thought mutants could wear normal clothes. Most of the special effects scenes were copied from various superhero movies and all the mutants were exactly similar to the ones in X Men. Another hilarious part is that though in the climax both the superhero and supervillain possess powers of telekinesis, they choose to battle it out bollywood style with a lot of dishum dishum! And yes, the glaring error in the whole movie was Hrithik Roshan himself. Because any person who has met Krrish and Krishna, could have identified them to be the same because of his sixth finger. But in his defense, if no one ever recognised superman even though he never wore a mask, no one could recognize Krrish. After all, a little make believe is essential in every superhero movie.
But all in all, this movie is presently suprising and worth a watch. Kudos to both the Roshans. I would probably give it 3.5 stars on 5 :)And to all the cynics out there, who think that making an Indian superhero movie out of all the English superheroes is lame, if you watched Ek Tha Tiger and Chennai Express, you can watch Krrish 3; it’s a much better movie.
