Verdict – if your idea of Diwali blockbuster is to burn your pockets by watching a messed up superhero flick then please go ahead and fry your brains
I have grown up on Shiva ka insaaf, Ajooba and Toofan so when Krrish3 claims to be India’s first superhero I don’t buy that. Krrish didn’t quite worked for me the way Koi mil gaya did so my expectations with Krrish3 was quite low and the little bit of dialogue promos that I saw kind of prepared me for the cheesy melodrama that awaits.
The film is kid friendly and is perfect for a diwali vacation outing. These days when kids are watching rowdy rathore, boss and films of that kind I’d rather prefer them watching a mediocre superhero films over that. For me it was like watching a Malegaon version of Krrish. It is so cheesy and campy in its story telling that the best way to enjoy this film is with dollops of sense of humour.
Ideas are borrowed from x men and a climax that will make you wonder if they shot it after watching man of steel. But, in the world of filmkraft a mutant can fall in love after one kiss and also get a romantic number shot in exotic location because she is Kangana Ranaut (the only convincing character amongst all). The story is so corny that I would give anything to get my hands on the video tapes of its story sittings if something like that exists.
Every time Vivek Oberoi came on screen I would wonder whether he and his mutants will dance to ‘iss kaal kaal mein hum tum kare dhamaal’. And by the way the mutants here are called maanvar. How very creative!
Hrithik Roshan should not risk his health over this super hero franchise and next time should get himself a better new age suit.
Word of mouth – if your idea of Diwali blockbuster is to burn your pockets by watching a messed up superhero flick then please go ahead and fry your brains with Krrish 3.
Rating – ** ½ (wont kill you)
Ticket meter – worth 200 bucks (only for the unintentional entertainment it provides)
