Neil Nitin Mukesh and Sonal Chauhan New Bollywood Film 3G Movie Review:
Neil Nitin Mukesh sees dead people. Whether dead people see him back is not known at the end of this chilling serial, which starts off as a comment on the perils of intricately-manufactured cellphones and ends with a slap-in-the-face comment on the porn industry that, we are told, threatens to destroy the very foundation of our societal structure.It certainly creates havoc in two lives out to have a fun week in azure Fiji. Here’s how.
Sheena (Sonal Chauhan), no… not the Jungle Queen, is vacationing in Fiji and expecting the love of her life Sam (Neil Nitin Mukesh) to come join her. He turns her down first and while she is sadly swimming in the picturesque beach of Fiji, sipping mocktails and sun bathing in tiny-winy bikini, sadly let me remind you, he makes a hero-ish entry in a fancy motorboat. Insipid romantic songs, some make out sessions, some of the many kisses and smooches follow and literally after 30 minutes of gruesome torture, the film starts. Having lost his mobile phone, Sam goes to a local store and buys a second hand 3G enabled cell phone. All hell breaks loose as Sam gets trapped in a maze set out by a spirit who keeps video-calling him at nights courtesy his 3G facility. How the spirit scares him, possesses him, keeps calling him, pleads him to solve her case is what follows through the rest of the plot.
Neil has worked hard on conveying a sense of growing anxiety within his character’s devilish domain. His performance gets its pat-on-the-back moment when in a moment of satanic exhilaration he raises both his hands triumphantly in the air to mock a priest saying, “Have you forgiven yourself?”His co-star has relatively less to do, and wear. Sonal does both with enthusiasm, and provides Neil’s character with a spooky counterpoint in the tale of the man, woman and the entity that enters their lives. The film depends almost completely on the couple to carry the chilling tale forward. The incidental characters are almost non-existent until the endgame when the story of another couple emerges from the folds of the inexplicable goings-on.
Technical and Other Departments:
Music by Mithoon and Amar Mohile is highly wannabe and only acts as a deterrent in the goings on. If there’s one aspect of this film that deserves ample appreciation, it’s the cinematography. The camera work is splendid, especially in capturing the picturesque virgin locations.
The film 3G makes interesting use of the traditional horror formula. It subverts the genre to poke sardonic scary fun at technological advancement and the stronghold of gadgets and gizmos in today’s times. There’s a frightening message here on how the past revisits our present when we aren’t looking.Eerie and spine-tingling in spurts, 3G has its moments of gripping suspense. Those who have enjoyed Ram Gopal Varma’s Bhoot or Vikram Bhatt’s Raaz would certainly derive a trembling pleasure in 3G.A shiver-giver set in the shimmering waters of Fiji, this is a well-structured though unevenly paced scare-fest that leads us into a terrifying climax. Porn intended.
3G is utterly disappointing for a horror film. Watch it only if you are in a large group of friends and are looking for unintentional humour.
