Hrithik Roshan's much-awaited movie Krrish 3 hits the theatres today. A third in the franchise that began with 2003 movie Koi... Mil Gaya, Krrish 3 will take forward the story of the superhero Krrish, played by Hrithik.
Like it's prequels, Krrish 3 once again takes us into the world of masked fantasy where the stakes are incredibly high and this time our superhero Krrish faces the challenge of saving the world from the clutches of the villain Kaal (Vivek Oberoi).
As per most of the film critics', Krrish 3 is an average film, that will strike the right chords, especially amongst the children. The movie has received mixed reviews from the reviewers.
Krrish 3 boasts of some spectacular special effects and the extravagant action and stunts are what those actually have stood out in the film.
On the other hand, the movie is verymuch predictable and doesn't really have much to offer us. Also, the movie fails to woo the adult audience and most of the scenes are not intriguing enough.
Performancewise, Hrithik Roshan is the scene stealer and delivers a stellar performance. On the other hand, Vivek Oberoi comes up with a surprise package. He's deadly and ruthless. But, Priyanka Chopra doesn't get much opportunity to prove her side of acting in Krrish 3, while Kangna Ranaut is hot and happening.
Rediff (Three stars)
Krrish 3 is a outrageous mishmash of Bollywood sentimentality meets E.T. meets Superman meets X-Men with set pieces, sound design and screenplay structure liberally borrowed from Hollywood's imagination.
DNA (Three and half stars)
Krrish 3 is an entertaining mix of spectacle and human-scale drama. Roshan combines his imagination and flair to deliver a film that is sure to capture everyone's imagination. It has something for everybody.
NDTV (Two and half stars)
Krrish 3 remains largely soulless, devoid of emotional energy and hopelessly trapped in excess.
The Times Of India (Four and half stars)
With a visually riveting and emotionally engaging story, intriguing characters, sweeping VFX (unseen thus far on Indian celluloid) Rakesh Roshan's ambitious dream lives up.
Koimoi (Two stars)
Krrish 3 isn't a terrible film but it is massively disheartening and mood dampening because of its imitative premise.
Indian Today (Three stars)
Watching the extravagant affair that Krrish 3 is, you realise the film's failure to scale exceptional heights is not necessarily about its tech-specs. It lies in the fact that the story reveals no ambition at giving the superhero genre any extra dimension as, say, The Dark Knight flicks or Iron Man have done in Hollywood despite not losing out on the fun factor.
Oneindia (Two and half stars)
On the whole, Krrish 3 is neither an award-winning material, nor one of the best works of Rakesh Roshan. But, it is Hrithik Roshan who makes the film one-time watchable.
