Krrish 3, which grossed Rs. 100 crores in 4 days, has been running to almost 100% packed houses. It squashed the notion that pre-diwali release won’t click off. Audiences are thrilled at the special effects and the visual effects in the movie, which parallel the special effects in big Hollywood movies like Batman, Superman and Iron Man.
Trade analysts also say the same, as Amod Mehra says, “I am stunned that such special effects are possible in a Hindi film. These special effects are all the more commendable as they are done in India by Indian technicians at one-tenth the budget of a Hollywood super-hero film.”
Taran Adarsh adds, “What sets Krrish 3 apart is the marriage of Indian emotions with special-effects. The film combines the age-old thought of Good vanquishing Evil using modern VFX techniques that are world-class. There is a strong storyline and the grip that Rakesh Roshan maintains over the narration is superb. Finally it is the homegrown super-hero who wins your heart again.”
Taran also comments about the family ties that are depicted in the film and adds, “The emotions are the USP here. The father-son bond and what happens when the arch-villain Kaal wreaks havoc in their lives are the plot’s mainstay.”
With all this response, Rakesh Roshan is very happy as he responds, “We were very sure that we had to have special-effects on a par with the Hollywood super-hero films. But how to do it, when our entire budget for all the action sequences was what the Hollywood super-hero films spend on one action sequence. We were determined not to compromise on the quality of the action scenes. Instead we decided to cut down on the number of action scenes to remain within budget. I think we’ve achieved a quality of action and special effects that are comparable with world cinema.”
Meanwhile, the film which is of international standards, has grossed Rs. 25 crores in the opening weekend at the International Box Office. The movie beat the collections of Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani. It’s director Rakesh Roshan recently said he hoped the film grosses Rs. 1000 crores. The movie definitely seems to be on its way…
