Vikram Bhatt’s Mr X is a 3D sci-fi thriller. Emraan Hashmi and Amyra Dastur play the pivotal characters in this film which has some impressive 3D effects. The story is about a man who gains the power of invisibility, and becomes a vigilante to take revenge on those who have wronged him.
Mr X – movie review…
Raghuram Rathod (Emraan Hashmi) and Siya Verma (Amyra Dastur) are very efficient officers of the ATD (Anti Terrorism Department). The similar profession brings them closer, they fall in love and decide to get married.
After successfully thwarting a terrorist mission, they decide that its time to get married, and on the day before their marriage, they are summoned by their boss ACP Bhardwaj (Arunoday Singh) to report to an important task of taking charge of security of the Chief Minister as the department has been tipped of his assasination.
Dedicated to their jobs and the nation, this young couple are impassioned about their work as much as they are passionate about each other.
Their life is about to change, and this ‘supposedly last mission’ on the day prior to their marriage date happens to bring them opposite to each other.
Sudden turn of events in the face of a shocking betrayal which turns the tables on both of them. In order to save Siya’s life, Raghu accedes to the orders of his senior, unkown to him that he is digging his own grave.
An explosion in the factory where Raghu is kept captive, and this badly injures this cop. Raghu has no one to seek help to attend to his burns expect for Popo, his junior and Popo’s sister who works in a Laboratory of a Research institute. The lady scientist treats Raghu’s burnt body with a potion which has never been treated on any humans or animals. In fact, this formulation has not yet gone for clinical trials.
This untested formula makes Raghu invisible to that extent that expect for direct sunlight, no person can see him.
The distraught Raghu takes this opportunity of a second life to avenge his death and bring to book the corrupt officials of his department and politicians.
The film takes a good turn in the second half and it has some above the Indian Standrads SFX. The love angle between Emraan Hashmi and Amyra Dastur isn’t working here. Picturisation of the romantic songs needed more sophisticated SFX especially the underwater lip-locks and romantic scenes during the same. Very amateurish.
Arunoday Singh works his part well, yet there is some X factor missing in this Bhat Production as compared to their powerful and impressive previous ventures.
