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
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
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
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.
Bollywood Hungama (Four and half stars)
On the whole, KRRISH-3 has the ingredients that make a
splendid superhero film, besides being Rakesh Roshan's most
accomplished work so far.
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
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.
