Neither are their powers used anywhere nor are they part of any good stunt sequence. Krrish 3's biggest problem lies in the amount of build-up the movie indulges in. The other problem is the moral science classes the movie indulges in. Vivek Oberoi's evil villain turn is hardly menacing. It shows Krishna aka Krrish Hrithik Roshan trying hard to blend amongst normal humans when he's not wearing his superhero suit and failing spectacularly at it, and pulling off some spectacular stunts in his superhero suit. The villain threatens to destroy the entire city of Mumbai, but hardly manages to kill a soul.
Kaal is searching for the perfect bone-marrow match for himself so he can start walking and wreak destruction on the world. Krrish 3 does a brilliant job of turning an age-old cliché on its head - the protagonist, a shining example of all that is good, is dressed in pure black while the antagonist, a not-so-shiny example of evil, is dressed in white armour. Rajesh Roshan's music is bad and Salim Sulaiman's background score keeps rising to a crescendo in every other scene whether or not it is necessary. . Kaal is paraplegic but incredibly powerful - sort of Stephen Hawking with tele-kinetic powers. Krrish 3 is also a lesson in product placement - how to be nauseatingly obvious in placing products in your movie, that is. The textual, graphic, audio and audiovisual material in this site is protected by copyright law.
Any trademarks are the properties of their respective owners. There are also Rohit Mehra Hrithik Roshan , Krishna's father and scientist par excellence, and Priya Priyanka Chopra , Krishna's pregnant wife. Which brings us to the man himself - Hrithik Roshan flaunts his unusually sculpted torso several times in the movie drawing gasps around the theatre whether they are for the perfection or the weirdness, remains to be seen. The film shows us an entire breed of mutants - rhinoman, antman, cheetahwoman amongst others - who act as nothing but props. The trio is up against an evil villain Kaal Vivek Oberoi and his army of manwars mutants born from a combination of manav and jaanwar - really, we ain't kidding.
There is hardly anyone else worth mentioning. The film takes off with a brief flashback giving us the gist of and so there's no problem if you haven't seen those. He is brilliant in both his roles as the father and the son, but he definitely needs to cry less in his movies. Priyanka Chopra is shrill and plastic, and you are left wondering where the actress who made her debut in has disappeared. You may not copy, distribute, or use this material except as necessary for your personal, non-commercial use. The attempt to create an Indian superhero is absolutely laudable, but Rakesh Roshan packs enough gore and cleavage to make the movie unsuitable for children.
But for this one instance, however, the movie religiously and zealously sometimes over-zealously follows every other cliché in the Rakesh Roshan book of filmmaking a book with around 5 pages in all. The film has a range of products - from Bournvita to Forever Jewelry to Flair pens to Del Monte - that constantly pop up at various places, and the camera either lingers over the brand name for a few extra seconds or is placed in such a manner that the audience have no choice but to see the brand name. Krrish's battle against all odds to save his family and the world, while ensuring that his costume and mask remain intact, form the crux of this installment of the franchise. The family promotion is also in full swing, with Suzanne Roshan's store getting prominent screen time in the climax. All the build-up to big conflicts is resolved in no time at all, leaving you with a sense of dissatisfaction. A deadly virus makes its presence felt several times but is almost immediately cured each time it appears.
Krrish 3 only ends up showing us how Indian masala movie sentiments do not mix very well with Hollywood-style superhero stories. Kangna Ranaut gets good screen time and bad costumes. . . . .
