Bollywood is masala. Just a superhero won’t do, we need more. For Krrish, Rakesh Roshan’s something more is the 80’s: family drama, romance, a love triangle. And a lousy storyline with over the top dialogues. Laughable villain, with silent bodybuilder goons and femme fatale, who falls for the hero…..
To say that the film is stupid is stating the expected. To say that it’s more stupid than I expected: that’s saying a lot. I was okay with Koi Mil Gaya. Via all the copying of E.T. it gained a story. Krrish had the charm of a guy discovering his powers. Both of these were not great films, but they tried being charming. After Krrish 1 comes Krrish 3, and we abandon all hope of anything making sense any more. We all know that the movie is a hit, but that just shows the dearth of options for our kids. It’s a horrible film for a kid. It’s violent, shows a lot of blood and suffering, and sends a very weird message of how DNA works.
