Krrish 3 is a good Indian efx flick but otherwise completely boring.

You could say that Krrish 3 is the work of a worn out director who still works on formulaic scripts from the 70s, i would agree. You say, that the music of the film is as horrible as the stink of ammonium, i would hug you. You could even say that Hrithik's worst performance is in here, i could nod. But dare say that this film has bad visual effects, even according to Indian standards, and i would put a bullet through your head. And this coming from someone who has seen Shankar's(for people who dont relate a movie with its director, Rajinikant's) 'Entiran/Robot', or Rajamouli's 'MagaDheera'. Krrish 3 according to me has the best efx i have ever seen on Indian screens. Anybody who disagree please post me the links of the better movies.

Well, now coming to my review about the movie. The movie is dead boring to anyone who has been living in a post-Avengers world. We have seen Ironman, Superman, Batman and many other superheros, and we very well know there cant be anything new in the plot besides saving the world. But the Hollywood has got enough money to pull grand action and destruction sequences, and the technology to create mesmerizing visuals. So story could take a back seat. Still they do something with the script. Krrish plays safe with a virus story, and mass masala treatment with road full of people praying for Krrish and such stuff. Well, at least today there are more people who feels disgusted with old aged masala concepts than a couple of years ago, though still a tiny percentage.

The dialogs in the movie are so slow and so redundant that you sometimes feel like kicking something. Its like if someone is eating the apple and his dialog is ' Main red apple kha raha hoon'(i am eating a red apple) and you would want to shout out ' Hey retard, i can see tat'. Thats the case with all dialogs in the movie. Plus the really slow delivery from the actors makes you want a knife in their hearts. A monolouge takes 3-4 minutes. But the viewers already know what the actors are going to say from the very first dialog. So for the rest of the time the audience has to bore himself to death.

Hrithik as Krrish is decent, and personally i feel noone else could do such Macho roles with the grace and sturdiness that he has. But his chiseled body, which he had to struggle for days to maintain comes only for a brief moment when he is roaming in his bedroom, and for some song scenes. What a waste of effort, that he couldn't roll his muscles for anything useful like saving the world. I would have killed the director if he had made me workout so much and not even have me punch the villain. Hrithik also doesn't have much scope for acting as Krrish, (tough he tries a vibration mode emotional reaction something), but he does a cute and good job as the endearing father of Krrish.

Priyanka Chopra would have been just a prop if not for the scenes where the villainous Kaya (played by Kangana Ranaut) changes her form into Priya. She looks so out of place in the dance scenes, and in her speech about Krrish and his heroics to Kaal. These artificial scenes with terrible dialouges kills the movie. Kangana Ranaut as Kaya, the villain's right hand has a meaty role, but its so sad that Indian movies can't pull out a decent sexy villian scene. The very intro of Kaya on a table with her legs exposed disgusts the viewer, and not seduce him. That scene was just not done right.

Vivek Oberoi as Kaal, the villain is slow and copied from a thousand different movie. He could have had a good characterization and some better dialogs. The way Vivek shows acts anger or resentmentt or whatever he is trying to do, comes out very blatant and meh.

The accusations that Krrish is a copy can be actually be set aside while watching the movie. It didn't really bother me much. Most superhero films are mostly alike.

The real hero in the movie is the brilliant efx in the movie. The scenes of the building crashing in the final fight is beautiful according to Indian standards. Yes you can't compare it to the hollywood standards. Hopefully in the coming years, we can still better this.

If anything is more boring than the blank dialogs, or the ancient filmmaking methods, is the music of the film. We could see the reluctance of Hrithik and Priyanka to lip sync these horrible songs in the movie. The songs could not have been even used in the 90s. I am so sorry Mr.Rajesh Roshan. Plus, you copy.

Well, the movie is supposed to be a children's movie, though i am not sure if even children would like it much. But there are scenes as in our epic 'Shakthiman', where Krrish tells children to be good and everyone is a hero. Well, now you know what kind of film this is(No comparisons to 'Shakthiman' please, which was having some purpose of life).

Do watch it, if you dont mind brainless or script-less movies. Please do help it to break the crappy 'Chennai Express' record, because it is better.
