I say that because not only has the Krrish sequels obliterated the standalone success of "Koi... Mil Gaya," but also has been wrongly termed an epitome of modern superhero trend of Bollywood.
The best thing about Krrish 3, if at all you consider, is the cast & their performance: Hrithik Roshan is very fine, but Kangana Ranaut will amaze you more. Priyanka Chopra, Vivek Oberoi & supporting cast follow the director's words. With a flashback on how the story had unfolded till now, the film starts with great promise and ambitious setup. What was supposed to be a lean, solid sci-fiction action movie turned out to be a copy of Hollywood films & clichés as the villain(s) enter(s) the scene. Tad unpredictability keeps the show going without inducing boredom and with random songs & brand advertisements & good Samaritan sub-stories, the film manages to flow. Involving Science into the script was one more good thing the makers did.
The popular X-Men franchise has been heavily sampled here, of course with direct references. Not to mention, almost every scene has something from Star Wars & Star Trek (dialogs), Inception (music), Avengers (stunts) & Batman series (costumes). If a person hasn't relished Hollywood in their palates, Krrish 3 will be a 7/10. But, unfortunately even kids nowadays have experienced the H'wood wind, so a 4.6/10 is quite generous.
And about the much-talked CGI, SFX, AFX, VFX: well, they are not bad at all. Since Indian cinema is trying very hard at it, we as audience should respect the effort and with Krrish 3, it gains applause. Few elements like the virus outbreak, theism/atheism and other baloney just works against the story which is, hands down, for 9 year old kids. And the climax makes me ask a question: Will there be a Krrish 5, like we didn't have Krrish 2? And if they are to walk in the same path, I'd be damned.
BOTTOM LINE: Faintly Recommended! Come on now, people! Spare the prejudice and consider: Is your child a fan? YES? Go for it! If you are bored this weekend, go catch "Gravity" (2013) or "Captain Phillips" (2013)!
One thing is sure, BOLLYWOOD in this decade still gasps for filmmaking instincts. It is high time they should inculcate indigenousness if they are to adopt such top-level genres.
