Krrish 3 Box Office Opening

Hrithik Roshan’s Krrish 3 has opened to an earth-shattering response at the India box office. The film is running to 90% opening occupancy at multiplexes and close to 100% at single screens.
There was a mad rush for tickets in the morning, long lines outside single screens where extra seats are being added to accomodate more people.

Morning business is on par with holiday releases like Chennai Express and Ek Tha Tiger last year. But noon shows are likely to witness a drop, as today is a working day in all states of India except Karnataka where it is a holiday for Rajyostav.

Krrish 3 is likely to beat the record for highest non-holiday release. But it remains to be seen how close it can get to Chennai Express which released on a national holiday.

  • ‘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.

    Superheroes have been around in Hindi cinema for decades, but huge technology jumps have made ‘Krrish 3’ the slickest of them all, special effects-wise. The rest of it is marred by tackiness. When Krrish is doing his derring-do stunts, we watch, even if we’ve seen Superman do this 30 years ago. But when he delivers maudlin dialogue about fathers and mothers and bravery, we are pulled back to the ground with a thud, with the superhero the Roshans made.

    Hrithik is the perfect choice amongst the Bollywood superstar lot to do this role. With his superbly articulated chest, each muscle moving and shiny and oiled, Krrish doesn’t even need a mask and a cape. But the ensemble is eye-catching, and we ignore his immaculately-styled long hair, flying in the wind, when he is whizzing about rescuing little boys. Roshan Jr is as likeable and earnest as he usually is, but can’t rise above the mothballed treatment. Roshan Sr, who has written and directed, should have given the superhero more to do.

    But he gets stuck in bringing the backstory forward. The soppy but sweet `Koi Mil Gaya’s ( 2003) socially challenged but brilliant Rohit begets Krishna, who finds his super-powers in ‘Krrish’ ( 2006). Both the ageing Rohit and Krishna star in `’Krrish 3′, and both roles are played by Hrithik. Priyanka, playing Krishna’s TV reporter wife, has to look on admiringly as Hrithik does his standard dance number. He is still as dextrous, but the dancing has no zing, and the songs are terrible.

    All is hunky dory, with Krrish doing his superhero stuff, rescuing a damaged aircraft ( there are no seat belts around the screaming passengers : should we care, or does anything go if it is a superhero film? ). And then Kaal ( Oberoi, kitted out in pale pancake and snarls), with the help of his coldly beautiful creation Kaya ( Ranaut, fancy-plaited and slitty-eyed) and a few other `human-aliens’, rears up in his den in some snowy mountains in an unspecified spot. And begins his plans of decimating the human race.

    At which point I stopped asking for even slim logic to connect the ‘maanwars’, Kaal’s word for his man and animal creatures, and scientists doing hocus pocus in labs and chattering about viruses and antidotes and so on. I kept trying to ignore the blatant brands promotion that ‘Krrish 3’ turns into. I stopped hoping that Roshan Sr would abandon his old-style filmmaking to bring us something dazzlingly new. I was left with a few truly spectacular scenes—full marks to the SFX team– in which Krrish leapfrogs across the sky. This is where some kids ( and adults) may clap and cheer. The rest of it is the usual old `ma-pitaji ‘ mush-fest.

    And oh yes, there is sure to be a Krrish 4. Or given that there was no 2 between the original Krrish and this third instalment, maybe that will be 5. Whatever, I’m not holding my breath.

  • For films with such humongous hype, this section of the review is just a mere formality. However, in my opinion Krrish 3 is a zestful effort from its makers to offer us a world class superhero flick. But sadly, it all goes in vain for me. The shabby acting, pathetic dialogues, over the top melodrama and zero presence of screenplay could have been ignored but what remains unforgivable is its unoriginal sequences. It was hard to find one scene that has no relation whatsoever with any previous superhero or sci-fi film. The lack of novelty is gravely dissatisfactory as the film has absolutely nothing to flaunt except their gusto to try something spirited of this magnitude!

  • Krrish 3 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 enthusiasm which is the film’s sole 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. I am going with a 2/5.

  • these kind of opening will be a dream for srk starrers..this is what u call real starpower..if it ws a holiday then man cnt even imagine hw huge no.will be..
