Murder 3


After the super duper success of ‘Murder’ and average opening of ‘Murder 2’, director Vishesh Bhatt bring to the audience the third installment of the movie titled, ‘Murder 3’.  The movie is an official adaptation of the 2011 Spanish thriller La Cara Oculta (The Hidden Face). Horror and thrill is the common factor of the Bhatt’s and in this movie they have gone an extra mile to showcase thrill and shock. The exception about the movie is Randeep Hooda. Murder means Emraan Hashmi but this time Randeep steps into his shoes.

The story is about a lover whose love disappeared suddenly and haunts his present girlfriend. Vikram (Randeep Hooda) is a wildlife photographer in South Africa. He gets a big break in Indian and his girlfriend Roshni (Aditi Rao Hydari) who is his colleague as well as girlfriends too chucks her career to be with her boyfriend in India. But things turned worse when Vikram started to spend more time in his work and with his hairdresser Nisha (Sara Loren) than his girlfriend.

One fine day, suddenly his girlfriend came and asked Vikram that she is going out of his life and he should not try to trace her. When Vikram went to India with Nisha and shifted in his palatial house outside of the city, Nisha begun to experience some unusual things in the house which is very bizarre. She predicts some ghostly affair in the house but Vikram takes her very lightly.

Then various question arise in mind where whether Aditi was killed and her soul is haunting Vikram’s girlfriend and if she was killed who killed her and why. The rest of the story tries to find answer of those questions.

Vishesh has told the story in a very gripping way which will surely hook the audience to the seat. The first part is very captivating and thrilling but gradually the exciting died down and looks that the film is dragging without any reason. The unnecessary inclusion of romantic number makes the movie dull.

Speaking about performances, Randeep Hooda has lots of responsibility on his shoulder as he is the main lead in the movie. He portrayed the role very efficiently. Aditi Rao Hydari showed her caliber in the second part. She was very promising in the second half than the first part. Sara Loren is very disappointing. She was expressionless and very dull.

In the nutshell, ‘Murder 3’ lacks the thrill but it is not a bad watch.
