Only open sensuality which surrenders to the male gaze can be the reason why the Hate Story series has been going on unhindered since it first started to annoy us in 2012. Hate Story 3 is as ridiculous as its predecessors with greater sleaze and a dumber storyline.
Industrialist Aditya Deewan (Joshi) has been successfully carrying out his multiple businesses mainly because he gets laid every night, all thanks to his well-endowed wife, Siya (Khan), who was formerly his sister-in-law before his brother died in an plane crash. Out of the blue, their matrimony as well as Aditya's businesses are targeted for sabotage by a mysterious man named Saurav (Grover) who wants to enjoy Siya for a night. (Man, she must be good.) As the husband-wife duo begin to find out about this guy, skeletons start to tumble out of the closet.
The story, at first, reminds us of Abbas-Mustan's hit film Race (2008), however, the lack of enthusiasm involved in the narration confirms that Mr. Pandya, an amateur, is the man at the helm. Basically, all the characters in the film are antagonists. Maybe because the makers wanted the audience to don the cap of protagonists and escape from the torture that follows after the outline is laid out.
Unnecessary songs slipped in at various nodes, unpleasant, badly directed, and horrendously enacted sequences of romance add to further annoyance. There is also this rocky background music that fades in and out of every scene that is supposedly major, forcing its audience to use cotton plugs.
The cast performance is nowhere near satisfactory. Joshi shouts and curses at his co-actors and looks hapless mostly because of the idea of bearing with the incompetent Ms. Shah and of making love to the enemy of acting, Ms. Khan. Grover, too, looks as if he is in a body- building tournament and is purely intimidated by his female co-actors who also seem be to flashing their bodies with great fervor.
In addition to the poor acting, direction, and dialogs, the climax is unbelievable and will force one to shout.
BOTTOM LINE: Hate Story 3 is a dark and unambitious story of people who want to share bodily fluids with each other, but want someone to shout "action" at them so that they can go about it. Easily avoidable.
Can be watched with a typical Indian family? NO
