Someone hold that rocket! I have two new additions that need to be shot to the moon and never allowed near a film again. Yes, Rakesh & Hrithik Roshan-the father and son team behind Krrish 3– have absolutely eradicated all competition for dumbest film of the year. Ranbir and his father can rest easy now that the world has finally got a response to the viral hashtag #moviesworsethanbesharam.
In hopefully the final movie of a trilogy, Krissh 3, we catch up with Krishna as he has settled into his life in Mumbai with his wife Priya played by Priyanka Chopra. Krishna finds himself struggling to juggle his life as a normal guy with battling new villains created by the evil telekinetic known as Kaal (Vivek Oberoi). Kaal, with the help of his mutant clones, tries to profit off of a scheme in which his company sells antidotes to viruses that they secretly created. As expected Krrish foils this plan and has a ridiculous showdown with kaal. I don’t even know where to begin with this movie. The caricature Hrithik produces when trying to embody the autistic savant Rohit Mehra (father of Krrish) is simply insulting and makes me question his skills as an actor. Followed by a flat portrayal of Krrish, Hrithik appears to have reverted to a very novice style of acting.
It is entirely beyond my understanding how a country that produces as many PHD candidates as India continues to produce movies that blatantly violate rules of physics. Wire stunts are the plague of indian cinema and unfortunately in this film that plague runs rampant. It was so bad that it became offensive to the eyes. Hrithik is spinning around poles and sling-shoting himself into the sky to hitch rides on plains, he is jumping from building to building and levitating throughout the movie. At times I was wondering if there were 5 or 6 year old children operating the cameras and directing this film. This film was heavy on visual effects but in a totally useless way. It did nothing to augment the story. In fact, it was used as a crutch by lazy writers to fill gaps in a story that was clearly illogical and full of inconsistencies
Music in this movie is equally bad as the wire stunts. In the opening scene the music bears an illegal resemblance to the theme from Pirates of the Caribbean, but judging on how much plagiarism that was done in this movie I imagine this is the least of their concerns.It’s one crime to give us a movie with no script but it’s entirely worse to give us that same movie without good music.
The only redeeming qualities of this film were Kangana Ranaut and Vivek Oberoi’s performances as the villains. Vivek steps well outside his generally positive comfort zone to become a truly sadistic antagonist. Kangana as well displays an impressive inhuman quality about herself as she portrays a mutant shapeshifter choosing between good and evil. Physically both of these actors dove head first into their characters and were almost unrecognizable as their former selves.
Overall this movie was absolute rubbish. I will think long and hard before ever going to see a Rakesh & Hrithik Roshan movie again.
Also take a minute to note all the film critics above. These are an elite group of villains more evil than any Kaal could have created. They have sold their integrity to pander to movie directors, actors, and production companies. With inflated and often entirely fabricated reviews they help con you out of your hard earned money and valuable time.
