True love is indeed the best thing one can ever get in life. But, if you ever dare cheat on your beloved, you might certainly land up in danger. Yes, that's what Vishesh Bhatt's latest offering Murder 3 teaches you. Murder 3 is built around a missing case of a beautiful interior designer, who has sacrificed her work, friends and family for the love of her life. But ALAS! Her Mr Love turns out to be a cheat. And, there's where life takes a turn for all in the film.

Story
Murder 3 starts with Vikram (Randeep Hooda), who seemed to have been dumped by his girlfriend Roshni (Aditi Rao Hydari). A heart-broken Vikram does a Devdas act and spends most of his time in bars, and is unable to forget his ladylove. It is then, he meets the beautiful Nisha (Sara Loren), who lends him a shoulder to cry. Vikram and Nisha soon fall in love with each other, and the latter shifts in his palatial house outside of the city. The old house, made decades ago is as beautiful as scary it is. Nisha soon learns that certain things are seriously wrong and unnatural in the house. But, she's confused as in what is it? She predicts the existence of ghosts in the house, but Vikram takes her predictions quite lightly. What happens next? What secrets and mysteries are hidden in the house? Is Roshni dead? Watch the movie to unveil the ultimate mystery.

What's good and What's bad?
The first half of Murder 3 successfully grips the audience with some serious thrills and chills. But gradually, one might accuse the director of dragging a few scenes. The best part of the film, would be that despite a few horrifying and spooky moments in the movie, the filmmaker intelligently draws a thin line between the thriller and horror quotient in the film.

It was certainly not a good idea to force a romantic song in every scene. There seemed no relevance or connection between a scene and songs. The filmmaker spoils the grip of the suspense drama towards the climax. In fact, a few serious and emotional scenes turn out comical.

Performances
Randeep Hooda scorches the screen with his oomph and sex appeal. The man is Hot with the capital 'H' and needless to say, you might just give a big ignore to his acting and just go on admiring him onscreen. Well, performance wise, Hooda does a convincing job, and yes, he's certainly the 'wicked' one in the flick.

You might find Aditi Rao Hydari pretty normal in the first half, but during the second half, she turns out to be a surprise. Hydari proves her calibre and we just loved her unique sense of humour in parts, which she maintains without going over-the-top.

Sara Loren is a big disappointment. The girl has no extraordinary acting skills to get noticed. Especially, her wooden expressions are a big turn off.

Watch or not?
On the whole, Murder 3 is certainly not one of best offerings by the Bhatts. But yes, it's worth one time watch.
