-Aditi Rao Hydari
-The short and the stupid first half
Murder 3 similarly draws the comparisons of the previous Bhatt's thrillers, beautifully picturised songs, few intimate and melodramatic scenes in the first half slightly revives us the Emraan Hashmi thing in the film, maybe we are missing him too much.
Plot: Things go serene and enjoyable with the married couple Vikranth (Randeep Hooda) and Roshini (Aditi Rao Hydari) in Cape Town, SA. Vikranth is a wild life photographer by profession and an unmissable contract makes them shift to Mumbai where Vikranth is now turned into an fashion photographer. After purchasing an archaic villa far away from the city, love starts to flow much deeper between the couple until Vikranth has been doubted by Roshini for moving closer to his hairstylist. The envious Roshini decides to leave him and records a video expressing her sorrow and grief.
The lonesome Vikranth now comes across Nisha (Sara Loren) a bar waitress and starts a new intimate relation with her. Slowly things change more sinister, all the weird and startling noises that Nisha encounters around the washroom makes her tell Vikranth that the place is haunted by an evil.
Who is the actual evil? Or is there something other than evil? Is love seriously murdered? The second half is the key.
Randeep Hooda truly impressed me in his previous non-heroic characters. But when it comes to Murder 3, he totally got wrong with his hairstyle and acting skills when the story proceeds. He's got zero charm and playboy character doesnt really fit into him. Overall he didint disappoint totally though but a better and a serious play could have enhanced the movie a bit.
Sara Loren the pakistani actress seriously needs to brighten up her acting skills and facial expressions. When something interesting is going to happen shes got zero expression on her face. Few romantic portions were performed well which are definitely suitable with her curves. Aditi Rao Hydari needs a special approbation for her performance, shes been splendid with her gloomy and juvenile expressions. This may be the new open up level for her in her uprising future.
Debutant Vishesh Bhatt's direction is adequate and coventional. The suspense built up in first half is totally tiresome. A different storyline seem to shape up for an terrifying suspense thriller but its a fail.
Music is a compensatory thing when it comes to every Bhatt production. This is definitely a chill-out for the film, all the soundtracks were fresh and were quiet hummable.
Final Verdict: Murder 3 doesnt really impress me and is quite compelling when i go back home and think it once. I consider this a one time watch, if you totally got nothing to do. Nothing is been comparable and been linked to the prequels. In the end "Love is been murdered twice"
My Rating - 2/5
