I flip through the Idiot box and stop at a channel showing ‘Krrish’ … even after so many years I was hooked on to it. Two movies ‘Koi Mil Gaya’ and ‘Krrish’, I must have seen umpteen times. Still so fresh and a new beginning in the Indian cinema, sci-fi I would say was brought in by these movies and the director Rakesh Roshan did a marvelous job. Hrithik Roshan rose like a phoenix and took the nation and the box office by a storm.
And as I see that movie a 12 year old sitting next to me quietly takes the remote in his hands and makes sure I do not change the channel. How smart!
I’m enlightened by the 12 year old boy that, “a sequel is due called ‘Krrish 3’ on Diwali 2013 and another sequel ‘Krrish 4’ the very next day. So second time in the history of cinema two sequels are being released one after another, the first being ‘Gangs Of Wasseypur (Part 1 & 2)’ which was released in quick succession in June and August 2012.”
‘Krrish 3’ in 3D will be quite a treat if it is true. Though I did find out that ‘Krrish 3’ is to be released in 2013 Diwali but no mention of ‘Krrish 4’ anywhere, but I did not want to break his heart so I just nodded and smiled.
The story line of ‘Krrish 3’ is stronger I believe. The ever so handsome Hrithik Roshan flying in the sky rises is such an amazing wonder in itself. He’ll be married to Priyanka Chopra his girlfriend from ‘Krrish’ and Rekha will still be alive along with his dad Rohit (Hrithik Roshan). The bad man is played by Vivek Oberoi who will be pretty strong physically unlike his rival in ‘Krrish’ being Naseeruddin Shah as in Dr. Siddhant Arya. So in this sequel we’ll see more of mortal combat between the two I guess… interesting!
Then we have the beautiful and smashing Kangana Ranaut in the meaty role as a superwoman. She’s training on martial arts and has lost weight for the movie (Man as if she needed to lose… phew), Shaurya Chauhan and Arif Zakaria are the other new entries in this series.
Hrithik as we know has done wonders as Rohit Mehra a disabled boy in ‘Koi Mil Gaya’ and then emerged as a superhero as Krishna Mehra in ‘Krrish’ is really working hard for his sequel in ‘Krrish3’ … I’m sure he’ll fly into our hearts once again.
And so begins the wait till Diwali for the fireworks in 3D.
