Krrish 3 decided the best Indian Super hero


After 7 years of fervent
anticipation comes the third part
of the super successful Krrish
trilogy in the form of Krrish 3. This
time around the stakes are higher,
the amount of money involved is
also higher (in fact a lot higher). So
what does the most popular
Superhero amongst kids in India
have in store for us this time
around? Is the story simple or
complex? Does the film entertain?
Does it justify the immense hype?
Let’s dissect.
Story: Kaal (Vivek Oberoi ) is
paralysed from the neck down and
has been on a life long quest to
find out the reason for his
torment. He creates a laboratory in
the Swiss Alps (presumably) and
makes dangerous mutants like Ant
Man, Scorpion Woman and Kaya
(Kangna Ranaut) through his
experiments. His sole objective is
to spread a deadly virus around
the world and sell the antidotes to
earn money for his pharmaceutical
company. When this objective of
his is stopped midway by Krrish
(Hrithik Roshan), Kaal sends Kaya to
Mumbai to tackle Rohit Mehra and
his family and to find out how
Rohit invented the antidote even
before his company’s scientists.
Thus ensues a highly elaborate
sequence of events where each
party compete to take the upper
Screenplay and Direction: Rakesh
Roshan has clearly worked hard on
coming up with a suitable script
and that is probably what explains
the time lag between Krrish and
Krrish 3. He has imbibed the script
with emotional angles involving the
father-son relationship and heavy
philosophy about humans and
humanity. Not all of it works, but
he deserves a huge round of
applause for the innovative
storytelling tools and the out of
the box ideas he has incorporated
into Krrish 3 without ever making
the film’s plot too complex. Rakesh
Roshan directs the film as well as
he probably could have. There were
a few niggles in the pace of the
film here and there, but they can
be overlooked for the joy it
provides when Krrish is out there
saving lives.
Films like Krrish 3 are highly
dependant on the technical
expertise of the crew working on
aspects like production design,
visual effects, costume design,
action design, cinematography and
editing. The visual effects of Krrish
3 are top notch considering the
limited budget of the film. Red
Chillies VFX have bettered their
Ra.One work here. Another
important thing to notice about the
visual effects of Krrish 3 is that the
visual effects never gets too
intrusive and doesn’t intrude the
story. The cinematography ably
supports the VFX work. The
production design however comes
across as too tacky and too
unrealistic. It was a major letdown.
The costume design doesn’t create
too many benchmarks of greatness.
Editing is decent enough.
Music and Background Score: The
major talking point of Krrish 3 in
the general public has so far been
concentrated around the dismal
music. Krrish 3 songs don’t work
and most of them are highly
unoriginal and below average. For
a big film like Krrish 3, a better
soundtrack was expected. It won’t
be unfair to say that Rajesh Roshan
has lost his touch. The background
score however lends a grand scale
to the film and works in the film’s
favour. Salim-Sulaiman deserve
credit for this.
Acting: Hrithik Roshan is the heart
and soul of Krrish 3. He excels as
both Krrish and his father Rohit.
He brings a familiar sense of
estranged and innocent good-
heartedness in his performance as
Rohit. And he is in super form as
the saviour of Mumbai – Krrish. He
has worked hard to attain a great
physique and that lends an air of
domination in his stature as Krrish.
One look at Krrish and you know
that he is your saviour! Priyanka
Chopra doesn’t have a lot to do in
Krrish 3 except for play the part of
the damsel in distress. Vivek Oberoi
brings a new type of villain to
Bollywood with his portrayal of
Kaal. His facial expressions form
the crux of his performance and he
delivers a great performance.
Kangna Ranaut plays her role as
Kaya like a mutant with the lack of
any facial expressions and this is
what was needed for her character.
Conclusion: Does Krrish 3 justify
the hype and anticipation? Yes.
Does it have any flaws? Yes, but
they are very minor flaws and can
be easily overlooked because of the
high dose of entertainment it offers
in regular intervals. Hrithik Roshan
owns the film and how! Krrish 3 is
worth a watch just for Hrithik’s
enigmatic screen presence as
Krrish. He knocks it out of the
park. If you are in the mood for
entertainment this Diwali, go inject
yourself with a dose or two of this
highly entertaining film.
Box Office: The box office opening
of Krrish 3 will be huge owing to
the excitement and buzz generated
around the film and the opening
will give it a momentum to carry
on the performance for the next
two weeks. 100 crore in the first
5-6 days is a given and 150 crore
should also be achieved barring any
major negative word of mouth.
