Movie Review: Murder 3 (2013)
Vikram (Randeep) a hotshot wildlife photographer (shoots ‘wild’-live women too) woes and seduces a waitress Nisha, (Sara) who moves into his huge, haunting home. He’s passionate by night and philosophical by day, brooding and bedding with intensity. Nisha, the damsel-in-daze, is flustered by Vikram’s cryptic conversations and supernatural sights and sounds in the house. The vital signs are cliches, like windows clattering, strange vibrations, and flickering lights. More often, the bathroom scenes steams up the suspense and waters it down just as quickly. But It holds many secrets which Nisha is soon to unearth; of the life of the man who made it and of Vikram, who is dealing with the mysterious disappearance of his former girlfriend Roshni (Aditi Rao).
MURDER 3 is a thriller that offers thrills and chills aplenty. The beauty of the film lies in the fact that it’s so damn unpredictable, so unforeseeable in its second hour. It’s nothing like you’ve seen in a Hindi movie thus far. Also, it’s a plot-driven movie, with Vishesh not borrowing anything from the previous two MURDERs. It goes without saying that MURDER 3 stands tall for its substance and most significantly, for the sparkling implementation of the written material [Mahesh Bhatt]. Like I pointed out earlier, Vishesh and the Sr. Bhatt metabolize the source completely to create a product that’s nothing short of brilliant.
