Often, we throw opinions easily about the Indian Superheroes that they are unintentionally funny, or even say we can never go beyond the quality of CGI work done in the ‘Shaktimaan’ series. No wonder pre-release Krrish is also associated with such skeptical speculations. The good news is Krrish finally breaks the ice!
Yes, the effort, money and time in creating Krrish-3 and doesn’t seem to have gone futile.
Like all the superhero movies, the foundation here is also on the good versus evil battle. Krishna (Krrish’s Hrithik) , Rohit (Koi Mil Gaya’s Hrithik) and Priya (Priyanka Chopra) are a happy family now. While Rohit is busy in the science labs, Krishna(as Krrish) is busy in saving aam-junta from mishaps and misfortunes. On the other side of the world, there is a menace – Kaal (Vivek Oberoi), a nefarious genius, who creates a hazardous virus, for which only he has the antidote. As expected, the benevolent Father-Son come in the way of Kaal’s mission and the rest of the movie is how they both thwart it.
The biggest strengths of Krissh-3 are its VFX and Hrithik’s performance as Rohit. The VFX may not be surpassing any Hollywood standard, but definitely way ahead of the Bollywood benchmarks. Except a handful of scenes, the graphics seem very natural and doesn’t play the spoilsport (like many other ambitious Indian VFX based movies). Vivek Oberoi gives a decent performance, and plays his role with the right subtlety and being baleful at the same time. Kanagana Ranaut fits very well as Kaaya (a human-animal fusion) and makes her presence felt.
The intelligent part of Krrish-3 is the customization of the Superhero to base on sentiment and emotions. Sometimes, it goes over the top, but in majority of the portions they gelled the emotional quotient quite well in the script.
The songs of Krrish-3, are a big minus, so much that Chacha Roshan (Rajesh Roshan) with the extremely boring music appears like a dangerous villain than Kaal with his virus. They bring down the graph of the movie too low that Krrish has to jump to the Stratosphere to bring back the audience attention.
Krrish-3 is a marriage of a well-packaged script and laudable VFX. If, you can spare the duration and the dull songs, this is the Diwali gift (for kids especially)
