Let me start by telling why I put an Asterisk after “disaster” ; because it’s a “conditions apply” statement. You are gonna love the movie and would even give a 4.5/5 rating, if you have NEVER EVER watched a Hollywood science fiction movie before. So, if you have never seen Hollywood movies, stop reading this blog, go to the nearest theater where Krrish 3 is screening and enjoy! No sarcasm intended… You are gonna love the movie.
Since you are still reading this, I presume along with watching Bollywood movies, you do watch Hollywood Science fiction movies too.
Have you seen X-men? , Man of Steel? , Iron Man?, Spider-Man?, the British TV series Doctor Who? If the answer is yes; even if it is for any two of the above, DO NOT watch Krrish. Let me tell it another way; if you want to see how a movie is made by combining characters and scenes in a way the viewer can easily recognize the “originals” within seconds and even predict what the next scene will be, GO WATCH Krrish 3! Believe it or not, even the climax was predictable!
Let me take a break and tell some good things about the movie! Awesome dance moves by Hrithik Roshan!. Of the 3 main songs in the movie, 2 of them has reasonable dance steps and if you are a fan of Hrithik’s body build up, the 3rd song is for you. (Oops, I can’t think of anything else)
The movie lacks sense of imagination. No; the director lacks sense of imagination and doesn’t have the slightest respect to the viewers. If he had, he would have added at least something of “his own” into the movie. Did not expect such low standards from a Director who has (had) class! Usually, for me, after I come out of a Science fiction or Action movie, I has this “feeling” inside my mind that I am the character and would even channel the energy and motivation from the movie into me! But for Krrish 3, it never happened! (Despite repeated reminder in the movie that everyone has capabilities of Krrish!)
Another disappointing “feature” of the movie is the senseless display of advertisement throughout the film. Its understandable when a film uses props of some specific brand in the scenes. But, keeping ”cut outs ” of the brand advertisements in every open space and with the camera focusing on the brand display board even during fight scenes is simply unacceptable. May be the producer himself knew how unoriginal this film is and hence decided to make most of the money from these brands and not from the audience!
Summing up; the entire production team has done injustice to the film and to the audience who trusted them. Lack of screenplay, lack of originality, lack of imagination…the lacks can go into lakhs! I should have gone with the NDTV rating of 2.5/5 for this movie and not the 4.5/5 from Times of India. If you seriously want to catch a movie this weekend, I would suggest the Hollywood movie ”Captain Phillips” (which I watched before seeing Krrish 3). I have heard that “Gravity” is also an excellent movie to watch ( especially in 3-D), but since I have not watched it, I am not commenting on it!
But Krrish 3 ; Stay Away!
My Rating 1.5/5 (That is for the graphic effects team assuming they did the editing themselves and did not buy the scene blueprints from the creators of other Sci-fi movies mentioned above)
PS: If you have small kids at home and would want to take them for Krrish, I would say yes. I believe they will really like it.
