Murder 3 REVIEWS

The Bhatts Come Of Age!

By , MovieTalkies.com, 15 February 2013 3 / 5

Murder 3 – In Brief
Murder 3 manages to incorporate all the elements of a 'typical' Bhatt film – great music, beautiful locations, decent performances, at least one horror element, interesting and improbable twists, ample number of lovemaking sequences and unintentionally funny dialogues. Starring Randeep Hooda, Aditi Rao Hydari and Sara Loren, the film is about how romances are marred by circumstances. Or something on those lines!

Murder 3 – Verdict
Vishesh Bhatt's directorial debut packs a punch. Although there are several sequences where the tackiness does show through, the film largely remains a good effort. While it is not known if the story has been lifted from another source, it must be said that the plot is quite different and intriguing.

Murder 3 – Short Plot
Vikram (Randeep Hooda) is a struggling photographer who moves with his girlfriend Roshni (Aditi Rao Hydari) from Cape Town, South Africa to Mumbai, India, in order to get a better career opportunity. On reaching Mumbai, Vikram gets enamoured by the lifestyle of the rich and the glamorous and gets too pally with one of his female colleagues. A few days later, Roshni mysteriously disappears. A grieving Vikram tries to pull back his life together and gets involved with a waitress Nisha, played by Sara Loren.

Now, who was the female colleague? Where did Roshni disappear? How did Nisha crop up suddenly? These are questions which will be best answered if you go watch the film yourself.

Murder 3 – Technical
The film has its share of highs and low(s). While the lone low remains several badly-written scenes, the highs are far too many.  The film has great music by Pritam (terrific sounds of KK, Mustafa Zahid, Nikhil D'Souza and Shafqat Amanat Ali) and the guest composers of the popular band, Roxen. The screenplay, co-written by Mahesh Bhatt and Amit Masurkar, is crisp and gripping.Devendra Murdeshwar's editing deserves lavish praise as at two hours, the film manages to keep you on the edge of your seats and the climax's flourish is the icing on the cake.

There are a few scenes wherein the humour creeps up unintentionally. However, these are minor blips and don't affect the film much. Randeep Hooda has delivered a terrific performance. Even the female leads, Sara Loren and Aditi Rao Hydari, have done a fine job. One only wishes that the makers of the film would have promoted it differently. From the promos, Murder 3 did seem like another sleaze fest. However, the story is clearly the winner here. Films made by Bhatts usually end up making money, irrespective of the quality of their work or the mandate given by the reviewers. Murder 3 is a fine film and one hopes, that the Bhatts, who release a number of films in a year, don't get complacent and keep getting better with every attempt. Vishesh carries forward the baton from here and going by his debut, things are looking bright for the production house.

Murder 3 – Final Word
Murder 3 is not just another Murder film, which promises a lot of skin-show. There's good content, thankfully!

Satisfying But An Outcome Of A Safe Play

By Reflections, MovieTalkies.com, 12 February 2013 3 / 5

Murder 3 is yet another romantic thriller that is part of the Murder franchise from the Bhatt stable. Directed by first timer Vishesh Bhatt, this film stars Randeep Hooda, Aditi Rao Hydari and Sara Loren. The music has been composed by Pritam with guest composition by Roxen Band while the lyrics have been provided by Sayeed Quadri who is another Bhatt regular with many of their recent films having his lyrical stamp on them. Music has always played an integral part in Bhatt films, more so in the Murder franchise. But of late, it does seem that the quality has slipped from the high standards that we have come to associate with Vishesh films.
The hallmark of any of the Murder films have been their romantic melodies and Murder 3 is no different. There are a couple of hummable melodies but they are not on par with songs like Bheege Honth Tere from the original Murder. In fact, the songs have more of the Pritam trademark than the Bhatt touch (which is slightly disappointing).
Getting back to the album, the first track is the melodious Teri Jhuki Nazar. The song sounds very ordinary when heard for the first time but grows on the listener on repeated hearings. Shafqat Amanat Ali’s voice beautifully captures the excitement of the budding romance between Randeep Hooda and Sara Loren. A very good start to the album for sure but surely not ground breaking by any standards. There is another film version of this song in the album which sounds slightly better than the previous version and has a soothing effect. All in all, a very good start by Pritam.
This is followed by Mat Aazma Re sung by the versatile KK. This song on love and repentance sounds pretty much like a usual KK number and is just above average. The beats are no doubt foot tapping, but there have been too many songs on these lines from Pritam that they do not really register after a point. KK seems to be getting stuck in songs of one particular genre and this surely is something that is a cause of concern since his voice quality is such that he is capable of so much more; sample songs like Pal or even O Humdum from Saathiya and the fact is all the more evident that he is being underutilized by the Hindi music industry.
