Tacky VFX, cheesy dialogues and no logic sum up Mr. X!
By Supriya Nair
Cast- Emraan Hashmi, Amyra Dastur and Arunoday Singh
Director – Vikram Bhatt
Rating - *1/2
The film revolves around Raghuram Rathore (Emraan Hashmi) who is a righteous police officer in the ATD cell of Mumbai. A tragic incident in his line of duty, leaves him fighting for his life and the only cure is a medicine that makes him invisible. He then becomes a vigilante to revenge those who tried to kill him. Well, all this drama obviously revolves around a love story between Raghuram and Sia Verma (Amyra Dastur) which propels the story further.
When Vikram Bhatt decides to make a film, he ensures that he has the following:
-A typical hero who can belt out the cheesiest dialogues.
-A pretty faced heroine who doesn't mind revealing her assets.
-An item song that makes no sense in the story whatsoever.
-An Ankit Tiwari song that is absolutely done to death
and his favourite, VFX (The tackiest according to industry standards)
Using his tried and tested formula, (which has almost always failed) Vikram Bhatt continues to underestimate the intelligence of his audience. The story line is nothing we haven't seen before, except there's a partially invisible man trying to make a point. Most scenes have been shot in an 'idealistic' Mumbai. ( Clean roads, empty flyovers, uncrowded locales)
We're not complaining, but its definitely not Mumbai!
The plot goes from a love story to a thriller with random sci-fi scenes forced in, making it a complete hotchpotch of ideas.
It's funny how Bhatt brings the supernatural element in all his films. There's a line that says, “The more science knows the more it realises it knows little!” With that logic, Bhatt decided to use an idol of lord Krishna that comes to the hero's rescue. Well, not that I'm an atheist or anything but it's high time Vikram Bhatt understands, this is not 1920! (pun definitely intended)
Emraan Hashmi does the same role yet again; I've lost count on the last time he played a character: without going against the law, fighting for love and does what he does best, kissing.
Amyra Dastur looks gorgeous on screen but her petite frame is quite distracting. She looks like the skeleton Emraan briefly turns into before becoming invisible. However, there are no complaints about her acting. She's certainly come a long way from her Issaq days.
Arunoday Singh's forceful dialogues and demeanor didn't do much for him.
Of all the extras it was surprising to see a talented stand up comic, coming down to his knees with this film. Tanmay Bhatt plays the 'good friend' of the hero who rescues him from dying. #faithinhumanitylost
The Khamoshiyan reject: Gurmeet Choudhary makes a special appearance in an item song. (We still don't know why?)
Ankit Tiwari's voice has been used and abused by the Bhatt's. And it's high time they stop!
It's best you remain invisible from this flick!
