Director Vishesh Bhatt New Bollywood Film Murder 3 Movie Review:

Leave aside the actors that the banner has introduced, Vishesh Films is a camp in itself if you just consider the family members involved in the filmmaking business. And while half of the clan is already busy making movies, the Bhatt's launch yet another family offspring Vishesh on whom the entire empire has been named. Mukesh Bhatt's son Vishesh has been assisting for quite some time and he finally takes over the mantle as a filmmaker with the third installment of their blockbuster franchise Murder. Whether this film is as riveting as the previous two or not let's find out.

Story:

Vikram (Randeep Hooda) is a fashion cum wild-life photographer from Capetown, South Africa who shifts to Mumbai courtesy a big job offer. His girlfriend Roshni (Aditi Rao Hydari) despite being well established in SA moves leaves everything and moves along with him. However, soon after they move to Mumbai Roshni starts feeling that Vikram isn't eventually as loyal as she expected him to be. In a bid to test her fiance's loyalty Roshni devices a plan but soon after falls for her own trap while a few days later Vikram stumbles upon another hottie Nisha (Sara Loren) and falls for her. While their love story gets strong, the cops start chasing Vikram suspecting him for Roshni's sudden disappearance.

Technical and Other Departments:

A film-maker is only as good as the story he tells and Vishesh seems to have done his homework well. What he creates in MURDER 3 is creditable, contemporary, besides working on the look and sound of the film as much as its content. It rides on the new energy of a young mind and the level of maturity in his very first endeavor surprises you completely. There's no stopping this guy. Music [Pritam, Roxen band] has always been an integral part of Vishesh Films and the soundtrack of MURDER 3 does boast of a couple of lilting tracks that fit so well in the narrative. I'd like to make a special mention of Raju Singh's background score, which is of international standards. There are several silent moments in the narrative and the background score elevates those sequences to an extraordinary altitude altogether. Sunil Patel's cinematography is top notch. He captures the stunning locales of South Africa with finesse. Sanjay Masoomm's dialogue are natural and fit beautifully into the narrative.

Movie Analysis:

Vishesh Films for long has been accused for ripping films off from world cinema and this time around they put the ranting of the critics to rest by officially remaking the Spanish film The Hidden Face. However, in a bid to Indianise the plot, Vishesh Bhatt reduces the effectiveness of the story.

For any thriller it's the twists and turns that matter although the twists in this film turn funnier by the minute. The change in the state of mind of Roshni and her steps that follow are so sudden and drastic that she only gets reduced to a mindless bimbo and evokes giggles from the audience instead of gripping you into the film.

Final View:

On the whole, Murder 3 is certainly not one of best offerings by the Bhatts. But yes, it's worth one time watch.
