Emraan Hashmi starrer Mr. X will be out this Friday and personally my review of the movie based on the trailer is that this film will be a big disaster, may be a bigger disaster than his last movies Ungli and Raja Natwarlal.
While Ungli was at least a good movie, Raja
Natwarlal made me want to kill myself. Emraan Hashmi is a
brilliant actor whose movie choices have gone from good to
Mr. X is a damn good script on paper, a cop turning
invisible and all that but when it came into effect, the trailer
did not impress me for I felt years ago our Hollywood counterpart
came up with a better version, Hollow Man. Since the
Bollywood makers were dealing with a superior technology today, I
expected the visual effects to be that good but sadly it is
The lead hero however disagrees with me, he says, "There are
plenty of visual effects and it's my request to the audience to
watch it in 3D. While we're also releasing the movie in 2D, it is
going to be best enjoyed in its 3D format."
One of the producers of the movie, Mahesh Bhatt said, "From the
time the protagonist becomes invisible, which is right at the
start, the movie has abundant scenes that stand out for the way the
VFX has been executed. Invisibility is a cool power to be seen in
3D. I was blown away by the VFX and I'd like everyone to watch it
Emraan going invisible in the movie part has come out pretty
well but when it comes to the rest of the visual effects I sadly
don't agree with the producers or the actor.
Check out my 10 reasons why the movie will be a
Emraan Hashmi's last few films have not been good and from the
looks of it, Mr. X doesn't seem that interesting as well.
This is her second film in Bollywood for her, while her Tamil
debut Anegan worked wonders on the Box Office, her role doesn't
seem that challenging in this film.
We have seen the Hollow Man in Hollywood ages ago so we got to
know Mr. X was being made in Bollywood we expected better visual
effects, sadly they are really bad.
Emraan says the movie should be watched in 3 D for it has many
visual effects which should not be missed, but sadly I did not see
any such thing in the trailer that would make me want to watch the
movie in 3D.
There was a time when Emraan was known for his bold scenes in
movies for which people would even see, but now people expect more
from movies than just some bold intimate scenes.
The fact that a cop turn invisible owing to a chemical reaction
from the medicine injected to cure him seems a tad bit dumb. Some
thought should have been put in when the makers were coming up with
When it comes to such movies, the action is the key aspect that
will entertain the audience, sadly I did not see such stunt scenes
in the trailer which usually shows the best parts of the
Sadly the chemistry between Amyra and Emraan seems very dull to
me. The actor has shared such good chemistry with his on-screen
lovers that Amyra fails to impress us.
The songs are nice, which is a trademark aspect of Emraan Hashmi
movie but there is nothing special and seems quite
Emraan Hashmi starrer Mr. X is a very strong concept on paper
unfortunately in trailer the makers failed to deliver it. Let's see
if the movie is any better.
