I really like this production house "Next Generation Films" they always try something different, but the only thing is that the length of their movies were too long which finally leaves you in distress.
3G is totally a different kinda thriller genre which really tested my patience allover. The intent of trying something new was appreciable but not the direction and the screenplay. So lets end up this review quickly.
Performances by the cast
The last 10 mins
Sam (Neil) and Sheena (Sonal) spends their intimate vacation in the outlandish Fiji Islands, after loosing his phone Sam purchases a second hand 3G inbuilt phone for a temporary use. In the meantime Sam starts receiving some petrifying unknown video calls which will twirl their adoring holiday into a disturbing nightmare.
The films kicks off in an spine-tingling way but when the actual plot takes of it started subsiding a bit. Its actually unclear at times and a bit unnecessary in few segments. An unclear mind of the director can be easily spotted when he starts dragging out the plot till the climax. And at a certain point i actually felt like "C'mon lets break out this suspense" which is pretty much needed.
Neil and Sonal were absolutely not amazing with their performances but the obligation shown was fine. Both of them share a pretty extensive screen appearance which has to be entertaining and that part from the cast was accomplished.
Shantanu and Sheershak the directional duo were impressive with their thinking and innovativeness but the screenplay and direction were pretty much defective. A 90 mins output can really be effective but 120 minute mark was clearly not needed. Maybe next time with a senseful thriller.
These kinda thrillers were needed to the Indian people when they show up with a good script. Apart from all the bullshit we really make, this is a brave attempt which is not a satisfactory one. Il give it a one and a half star for their thinking which is needed in the future.
My Rating - 1.5/5
