• The film is ambitious but flawed. It is, however, consistently watchable for its terrific lead star who you can’t take your eyes off, even for a moment.

    ‘Krrish 3’ is a superhero film. It is also a throwback to the creaky family entertainers Bollywood used to make. The hero has special powers, sure, but also a loving daddy, a lovely wifey, an attractive moll and a villain with severe daddy issues. Only a pet poodle or parrot is missing.

    …the only superpower Krrish has is that of boring the audience. Just stay away, will you? It’s the responsible thing to do. An empty wrist will serve you best.

    … isn’t a patch on the best superhero films made in Hollywood but it is a step forward for Bollywood. Somewhere in the future of this franchise, the superhero concept and the requirements of mainstream Hindi movies will merge seamlessly. Until then, cut the Roshans some slack and enjoy. I’m going with three and a half stars.

    …Krrish 3 doesn’t soar. In fact, Krrish doesn’t even fly about a lot. And so he doesn’t scoop us up either, and lets us off a bit disappointed after promising an exciting, thrilling ride.

  • It’s not original. It’s not subtle. What Krrish 3 is is astonishingly eager to entertain with its stock of doodads that should amuse if not endear.

  • …could have been a much better film if it had been a tad more original. The blatant plagiarism from other superhero films, the absolute lack of creativity, has made me lose respect for the makers and the film itself. In conclusion, after watching Krrish 3, all I can say is that I need a therapist.

  • If there is any worthwhile takeaway from Krrish 3, it is simply this: the titular masked messiah is an ‘idea’ and there is a superhero in each one of us.

    For sheer vision, bravado and superlative execution, this one soars to new orbits. Latch on to this cape for an exhilarating ride.

  • This is the kind of film one can unabashedly enjoy for what it is. Go on, indulge the superhero fan in you.

    The makers made sure that it sends a positive message, ‘there is a superhero is in all of us’. Krrish 3 is a worthy addition to the franchise.

  • …isn’t a terrible film but it is massively disheartening and mood dampening because of its imitative premise. Hrithik reprises his role of Krrish with an enigmatic energy and infallible which is the film’s most glistening point. The ludicrous storyline is miffing but the chiseled bodied superhero indulges us enough to make this film a decent one time watch this festive season. Don’t expect too much or pine excessive hope on this one. A well intentioned, brave effort but falls notches beneath an exhilarating cinematic experience.

  • Watching the extravagant affair that Krrish 3 is, you realise the film’s failure to scale exceptional heights is not necessarily about its tech-specs. It lies in the fact that the story reveals no ambition at giving the superhero genre any extra dimension as, say, The Dark Knight flicks or Iron Man have done in Hollywood despite not losing out on the fun factor.

    …has the ingredients that make a splendid superhero film, besides being Rakesh Roshan’s most accomplished work so far. Besides a riveting plot, the film scores brownie points thanks to the strong undercurrent of emotions, the clash between the protagonist and antagonist/mutants, the awe-inspiring visual effects, the larger-than-life entertainment and of course, Hrithik Roshan, who is matchless in this avtaar. It’s a Diwali bonanza for moviegoers across the globe and is sure to conclude the celebratory period on a high. BLOCKBUSTER.

    Krrish 3 looks like a mish mash of popular Hollywood superhero films – Spiderman, Superman and even X Men – they are all blatantly ripped off in this two and half hour saga that mainly caters to kids and juveniles. Why else would you show something, then tell about it and then explain it, just in case you missed it the first and second time around. Five writers have been credited and don’t be surprised if each of them was given a Hollywood franchise to ‘adapt’.

  • …is not perfect. But it has all the elements a good, entertaining film must have. All you Marvel superheroes, better watch out. Krrish is here to stay.

  • Take a bow Rakesh Roshan. The technology used is brilliant and the overall product is awesome.
    KRRISH 3 is a must watch!

  • …the kind of film that keeps you entertained and holding your breath because of the sheer absurdity of it all.

  • …will turn out to be a fun adventure for the little kids and Hrithik loyalists. For the rest of us, it’s going to be just another superhero attempt in the right direction. Hopefully, it won’t be long before we get our very own superman!

  • The superhero of atrocious superhero filmmaking has struck again, and it’s not a pretty sight. Take the most superficial components of X-Men, Batman, Superman, Spiderman and even Shaktimaan; stuff them together in a litter bag, set that bag on fire and inhale the fumes – that’s pretty much what Krrish 3 feels like.

    …a box-office bonanza which will write box-office history. It will do outstanding business and will emerge as one of the biggest blockbusters of Indian cinema. In spite of lack of comedy, romance and hit music, it has tremendous repeat value. Let it be said loud and clear: Some films are destined to write box-office history, and Krrish 3 is one such film. It is: Avatar meets Superman meets Indian sentiments!
