There is much to enjoy in this unapologetic attempt to create a unique Indian superhero flick.
The silly, square and charming Bollywood superhero picture Krrish 3 measures up pretty well, provided you bear in mind that it's more of a kids' movie than its U.S. counterparts.
The movie is devoid of that one secret ingredient that makes audiences love superhero films: It just isn't cool.
To be clear, it's not an altogether awful movie. The film bounces happily within the safe, sometimes stupid confines of generic Bollywood tropes.
Krrish 3 could have been salvaged if the story had been a little less convoluted, but there are too many unnecessary complications and sub-plots.
Hrithik is truly the stuff superheroes are made of.
Each scene has you hooked and it moves seamlessly at a brisk pace.
Filmmaker Rakesh Roshan deserves a round of applause for giving us a homegrown superhero. Krrish 3 is ambitious and exciting. Sadly, it's also derivative, clumsy, convoluted and far too long.
Director Rakesh Roshan distinctly veers away from the dark ennui of recent Hollywood superhero films and opts instead for a film of good but gentle fun.
Hrithik hams his way through the film, especially in the role of the father, complete with peeling pancake make-up and that now-familiar, irritating way of speaking.
A tighter third act would have helped, with one too many teary farewells and resurrected bad-guys bulking up the finale. Naturally, such issues won't bother the under-12s, for whom this old-fashioned, energetic matinee malarkey is clearly aimed.
A highly enjoyable Bollywood-take on the superhero action genre, with a hefty dose of wushu-style wirework added in.
While it's another leap for Indian cinema considering the special effects, the movie hardly offers anything more than that. Mutants are introduced in a shoddy way. Seems like much more attention has been given to special effects than the script. It's just another superhero flick, with mutants thrown in. Even the songs are not pleasing to ears this time. The flick just falls short of expectations in almost every aspect. Apparently, for me. Lots of others were whistling and applauding often while I hung around for some worthy moments. 1/10 for managing to..........
