Hrithik Roshan who spent a long time shaping himself up for his home production has finally arrived by teaming up with his daddy Rakesh Roshan. Whether the efforts were worth or not, let us see
Krishna aka Krrish (Hrithik) is leading a happy life saving the world with his wife Priya (Priyanka) and father Dr Rohit (Hrithik again). The happiness doubles when he is told that Priya is pregnant. But it doesn’t last long as Kaal (Vivek) is an evil genius who has been trying to find a cure to his paralytic condition and in that process he creates mutants like Kaya (Kangna). One thing leads to another and this brings Kaal to encounter Krrish. What happens after that forms the rest of the story.
Hrithik did full justice to his role and his performance as the senior person was fabulous. Make up played vital role to convince audience with the role. Equally awesome was his physique and his dance in a song. Overall, he did a very good job.
Priyanka Chopra was sweet as usual and she pitched in wherever necessary. She is not much of a pretty girl but the way she carries herself makes her presence felt.

Vivek Oberoi made use of the opportunity given to him. Though he didn’t have to show his body language, he showed the required evilness wherever required.
Kangna Ranaut looks cute and despite her role with negative shades, she has that uncanny sex appeal which cannot be missed.

  • Hrithik’s dual performance
  • Production values


  • Outdated storyline and narration
  • Insipid Songs
  • Stale drama

From the inception of Indian cinema, filmmakers and storytellers have been focusing more on entertainment and family oriented themes. They didn’t dare to venture into the science fiction genre so much. At the same time, the concept of an Indian superhero is something which is yet to make its impact among Indian audience given the knowledge and influence they have from Hollywood.
So, this film comes as one such attempt which is trying to prove a point that it is the answer to all those questions. But if one has to judge it then they better treat this individually without drawing any comparisons with Hollywood. If that happens then this one stands no chance. Rakesh Roshan is still living in the old school thought of a conventional superhero.
But the rate at which today’s generation has got exposed to out of the box ideas and futuristic science fiction through Hollywood films; it would be hard to connect to this one. But still, we have two sections of audience those can be target audience for this. They are the kids and hardcore Hrithik fans. While Hrithik fans just awe at his muscles and chiseled body, kids of new generation don't connect to the obsolete sensibilities.
The film takes off from where it stopped in its previous part and the first half revolves around the typical introduction of characters and the layering of the plot. The interval bang sparks no big interest and it is only during the second half that the actual story flows in but very predictable and rotten. Barring few action sequences and the capturing physique and performance of Hrithik, the film doesn’t really hold many engaging moments.

Its a film that makes even kids bored. The film lacks in engaging screenplay and new age narration. It's like an attempt to imitate Hollywood style but completely gone wrong with substance.
Bottomline: A failed circus feat on big screen
