Krrish 3 Review: The story continues in Krrish 3 with Krrish (Hrithik Roshan) doing double-duty, like most of the superhero variety, as a common man on one side, playing typical husband to his wife and son to his father, and a superhero on the other end. Enter antagonist Kaal (Vivek Oberoi) and his sidekick Kaya (Kangana Ranaut), a bunch of Kaal’s creations creatively called “maanwars”, a plan to destroy the human race, a battle between good and evil, and there you have the story.
Now don’t be mistaken – the plot of the film is by no means a copy of any Hollywood superhero film. There is no doubt that Rakesh Roshan has come up with an excellent story that is as good as, if not better than, Koi Mil Gaya and Krrish. There are many other positive qualities of the film. The performances are impressive. Hrithik Roshan excels as both the dynamic Krrish and his middle-aged lovable father Rohit Mehra. Priyanka is good with whatever she gets, Kangana is great, while Vivek Oberoi, the only weak performance here, does get on your nerves at times. In addition, the special effects have taken Indian cinema to a whole new realm. They are truly jaw-dropping, and rival those of any Hollywood film. Props to the crew for taking the time to achieve such perfection in this regard.
Now Krrish 3 is not a bad film by any means. The positives truly outweigh the negatives, and you won’t regret watching it at all. Yes, the film had much more potential, yes, there were some moments that could have been much better, but considering the newness of the genre to Indian cinema, it truly is a step in the right direction compared to “Ra.One”. As long as you watch it in the context for the audience which the film was designed for, you will enjoy it.
