For those who have feasted on the several superhero flicks churned out by the Hollywood studios, KRRISH 3 will evoke a feeling of déjà vu. However, for those who have not yet been exposed to that genre, India’s premier superhero should keep them engaged for a while with his onscreen larger than life histrionics.
Loaded with some fine special effects, the film is definitely one of its kind to have been presented on the Indian screen. However, the many sequences and characters borrowed from multiple English superhero films don’t make the film stand tall in the originality department.
The plotline is weak, breaking into unnecessary songs every once in a while and laced with dialogues which fail to leave any impact.
Hrithik Roshan as Krishna and the superhero Krrish is charming on the screen and delivers well; however Hirthik as Rohit (Krishna’s father) gets a bit annoying at times. Priyanka Chopra delivers what is expected of her. Kangana Ranaut, the baddie turned angel, is average. That said, she really needs to work a bit more on emoting expressions of love on screen. Vivek Oberoi as the evil Kaal delivers a believable performance.
On the whole, one does appreciate the effort to create an Indian superhero but KRRISH 3 would have been a winner had it not relied overmuch on Hollywood resources.
