Mr. X - Preview

Another cookie-cutter film from the Bhatt stock house. Does making the protagonist invisible really change things much? He is still a spirit, right? He is still going to kill the bad guy for some or the other reason, right?

Just nothing rings above average about Mr. X's promos. Including the music.

Music Reviews:
Bollywood Hungama – "2.5/5"
glamsham – "3.5/5"
Milliblog - "a listenable soundtrack, in Bhatt tradition."
Music Aloud - "6/10"

A Bhatt film starring Emraan Hashmi can pique your interest only so much. After what we can call a typical start to a Bhatt-thriller, comes the typical death and inevitable resurrection/revival. The mumbo-jumbo is different, but outcome typical. What is atypical though is the resolution. It makes you sit up and notice, if you have been paying attention thus far, that is.

It doesn't help that the actors all seem to be going through the motions rather than emotions. It must be said though that the lead lady's character gets a bit more to do here than your typical film in this genre.

The story winds and unwinds way too much in the second half. It is almost as if the intriguing climax was the goal. The events leading up to it had to be convincing given the maze of characters and their motivations. So, whatever it took to get to that end given the constraints was done.

On the way you have some decent use of CGI, though I'd have liked to see it in 2D. The prosthetics are pretty awful, the kind that makes you laugh rather than gross you out.

At the end, I was a little surprised and a little disappointed. Given the dilemma and the conclusion thereof, the concept deserved better screenplay and writing. Should I be happy then that there seems to be a series on the way? ;)

So-So, by Nikhil Kumar, Apun Ka Choice : ...In short, all 'Mr. X' offers is a few sparkling moments from Emraan Hashmi. Watch it for him if you must.... full review

So-So, Bollywood Hungama : ...Given the fact that all of Emraan Hashmi's films have at least one (smash) hit track in them, this film falters in that department as well. The film's music (Jeet Ganguly, Ankit Tiwari) lacks any hit or hummable songs. It's the film's background music (Raju Singh) that manages to hold the film. While the film's cinematography (Pravin Bhatt) is decent, its editing (Kuldeep Mehan) is average. ... full review

So-So, by Parichay Mehta, Desi Martini : ...His only superpower is going invisible when not in sunlight & under ultraviolet lights. Decide for yourself now.... full review

So-So, by Devesh Sharma, Filmfare : ...What Vikram Bhatt has done is that he’s set up a premise for a superhero movie franchise. Now, he needs to hire a better writer and work on the script like crazy before taking it forward in the next installment. We would love to have another homegrown superhero for sure…... full review

So-So, by Zehra Abbas, fullhyd.com : ...Today's audiences might get nostalgic about Mr. India and laugh indulgently at its flaws, but films like Mr. X, made in 2015, will be greeted only with derisive jeers. The Bhatt camp needs to up the quality of its future ventures if it wants to move away from the B-grade moniker.... full review

So-So, by Ananya Bhattacharya, india today : ...In all, Mr. X comes across as a decent one-time watch, if you choose to reflexively force-shut your ears to some of the soapy dialogues. An important takeaway from the film: Workplace romances are doomed, and will more often than not, get you into trouble. The story is very predictable, but there aren't really those moments when you feel why the film doesn't end. Two for the film, and a half extra for Hashmi. Watch it for Emraan Hashmi...baaki ki chinta chhodo.... full review

So-So, by Somdatta Sen, Star Blockbuster : ...A one-time watch for the actor and his kissing skills in invisibility. ... full review

So-So, by Mohar Basu, Times of India : ...Despite flaws, in its 133 minutes of runtime, Bhatt churns out a quasi-gratifying film, which has all the necessary commercial ingredients - from romance to good music to thunderous action sequences... full review

So-So, by Ritika Handoo, ZEENEWS.COM : ...Mr X can take you back to your Mr India days, but only for the similarity between their film titles—if only criminals could be killed by going invisible! Book your tickets for Emraan Hashmi ala 3D style!... full review

Thumbs down, by Bobby Sing, Bobby Talks Cinema.com : ...Hence it doesn’t matter whether they are enjoying or not the process of writing and making these films, the production houses are bound to keep supplying such kind of hurriedly made business products to the multiplexes in the name of cinema. And the plan will keep on working till ‘the consumer or the viewer’ wakes up from his sleep in the coming future... full review

Thumbs down, by Namrata Thakker, Bollywood Life : ...Buy a DVD of Anil Kapoor and Sridevi starrer Mr. India this weekend and watch it with your family because spending a single penny on Mr. X is a crime!... full review

Thumbs down, Daily Bhaskar : ...Why watch? Watch it if the doctor has advised you that watching bad films is the only thing that can save your life.... full review

Thumbs down, by Sushmita Murthy, Deccan Chronicle : ...Performances in the film are strictly okay. Emraan does a fair job of portraying his helpless character, but the story is so weak that it weighs him down with it. Amyra lends immense prettiness to the screen, but unfortunately that’s the best she does. As for Tanmay Bhatt, he’s probably got enough matter to joke about for many of his stand-up acts to come.... full review

Thumbs down, by Smita Vyas Kumar, Desi Martini : ...A feeble story and nonsensical side effects ensure that this movie will do a Mister X from the theatres very soon!... full review

Thumbs down, by Tushar Joshi, DNA : ...Revisit Hollow Man instead and leave Mr X to debut on your TV on a lazy Sunday afternoon.... full review

Thumbs down, by Mihir Fadnavis, FirstPost : ...The songs are the standard Vishesh Film-flavour, which means they are irritating at best and generic at worst. There’s an underlying strain in the film of turning Mr X into a superhero and if this were a self-aware comedy, it would have worked fine with the exact same cast. Unfortunately Bhatt believes in rendering films with heart stopping seriousness. The net result is a film that’s awful enough to make you remember Tushar Kapoor’s gem Gaayab as a work of art.... full review

Thumbs down, by IANS, Free Press Journal : ...The character of the corrupt cop isn’t fully etched out, and so his motivations remain far too hazy to be convincing. That is the problem with Mr X as a whole. It is overly contrived, flouts logic at crucial junctures of the narrative, and fails to be gripping. And that is the least that a sci-fi drama should be.... full review

Thumbs down, by Martin D'Souza, Glamsham.com : ...One should not be mistaken for Arunodhay Singh's act of the bad cop as an extension of his role from MAIN TERA HERO. Same to same; Ditto! ... full review

Thumbs down, by Rohit Vats, Hindustan Times : ...Mr X is badly written, and we don't want to talk about acting. Emraan Hashmi appears bored, but Amyra Dastur looks improved in emotional scenes. But it is not enough to save the film. Mr X is a complete waste of time. And, before clicking on to another link, you would like to take note of this conversation. It takes place inside a bathroom.... full review

Thumbs down, by Rajeev Masand, IBN Live : ...Don't miss the film, or you'll miss what is likely one of the year's strongest performances by a female actor.... full review

Thumbs down, by Shubhra Gupta, indian express : ...watched ‘Mr X’ in the 3 D version, hoping for some diversion. But there was none. Justrelentless awfulness in plot and execution and performance. The specialeffects are justabout allright and even those you’ve seen before.... full review

Thumbs down, Indicine : ...Conclusion: Mr. X is an all round failure in the story, visual effects and most importantly in the entertainment department. It is confusing on many levels, the science is sketchy and unconvincing. The acting is banal, the dialogues feel better suited for the 1990s and the music is a huge disappointment. The makers could have had a cult classic on their hands if they had taken an unusual route but by turning Mr. X into another masala film they missed something here. Stay invisible from the theaters this week.... full review

Thumbs down, by Surabhi Redkar, koimoi : ...Mr. X is just another Bhatt film. Driven by love and revenge, this superhero film is least on the superhero quotient and high on drama. This time for a family audience, I am not sure even kids who have now grown up watching Avengers and X Men would like this.... full review

Thumbs down, by Shaheen Parkar, MiD DAY : ...Bhatt’s recent outings have been in the genre of supernatural and 3D horror. This time, in his tech endeavour to create an invisible man, he appears to have overlooked the storyline. Wish he had paid attention to other details as well.... full review

Thumbs down, by Joginder Tuteja, Movie Talkies : ...Eventually, Mr. X could well have been a different film since the one that plays on screen is not what had been bargained for.... full review

Thumbs down, by Divya Solgama, MoviezADDA : ...Dum??? Well, 'Mr.X' had a great opportunity of becoming a kid loving franchise film like 'Krissh', but ends up being a decent trashy product due to its weak screenplay and lethargic direction. It's not a bad watch, but it's not worth a watch either. Despite of having everything needed for such type of film, it lacks highly on the 'X'-factor and for that, one can blame it on the Bhatts radiated by the high influence of Hollywood films.... full review

Thumbs down, by Raja Sen, Rediff : ...Hashmi pops on and off screen with gimmicky background score flashes, and his invisibility is absolute, without any gradations or gradual dimming, as if the digital effects guys were given ten bucks and shown the eraser tool. ... full review

Thumbs down, by Sonia Chopra, Sify Movies : ...But the central flaw with the film is Mr. X himself who never piques our interest and is as hollow inside as he is on the outside. Steer clear.... full review

Kidhar Mr X mein uljhe hein hum? The trailer for the first true blockbuster of 2015 is out - Dil Dhadakne Do. And by the looks of it, it will continue where ZNMD signed off. Couldn't wait till 5/6.

Anuj

ZNMD in itself was up and down with boring sequences midway through. DDD seems to be even worse. Zoya Akhtar seems to have mastered the art of catering to the sensibility of ultra rich urban NRI indians with flamboyant lifestyles and issues ranging from the colour of their tee to the amount of sugar in their coffee. DDD will do well only among wannabe Brit and American college going and corporate doofuses. For the rest, it would be a bomb!!

ANuP

Haven't find anything boring in ZNMD except some lonely scenes of Hrithik and Katrina. Infect its one of those movies which i have seen twice in the theater . Expections are same.

Fan

Ditto. Seen ZNMD in theatres twice. And not in the same week. Despite the theatre was full.

In fact ZNMD is in the same category as Dil Chahta Hai. And DDD will follow in the same footsteps.

As regards stinking rich and their life-styes, I prefer that then sitting through a Kashyap film on stinking poor and their life-style. At least for the 2 hours + of the film you get the escapism that Hindi films have always provided.

If promos are to be believed (and I usually don't believe them): then Anil Kapoor seems to be in ultra fine form. And casting a relatively lesser known Shefali in the key role is also a good idea - thereby she does not come with any preconceived perceptions on her character (à la Kiron Kher and her peers).

Can't wait. Let's hope it delivers.

Fan

And agreed, the targetted audience for DDD are metropolitan youngsters, and upwardly mobile class. There are no pretensions. So I do not expect this film (and nobody should expect it) to rake in the moolah in a remote Bihar or UP village.

BTW: Amount of sugar in coffee should be the issue for everybody. Refined processed sugar is extremely dangerous, as per Ayurveda and even as per all the latest Brit and American experiments and observations. So if the film tackles an issue like the amount of sugar in coffee then it is an issue of national health importance.

Anuj

Yeah, rich brats in rich exotic locations talking about their noobish ridiculous problems in life which 90% if India does not even care for (ickle candy stuff like college sweethearts) is defined as "escapism" by some cinema watchers. And anyways, at least ZNMD was entertaining in bits and pieces. DDD trailer is plain bland, boring and snoozeworthy with below average actors (except Farhan doing what he does best) making absurd below average ugly facial expressions against pretty locations. I'd rather take PIKU's trailer anyday, anytime (despite the below average Deepika since AB looks in full flow and Irrfan at his usual best). ZNMD was a Hit courtesy its power packed cast and some witty scenes every now and then (the only reason that i could sit through it), DDD would not go beyond an AVERAGE verdict at best. Its gonna be rejected by even the plex audiences for whom it is targeted.

PS: Some hypocritical male chauvinists love bogus escapism by a gang of heterosexual pretty boys but when the same "discovery of life" is based on a single female traveller, they call it bogus (Queen anyone?).

Anuj

Its one thing making a film for a particular audience. Its completely another thing for that film to actually be accepted by that same target audience. DCH,ZNMD,Queen,Kahaani etc were made for a particular target audience and got accepted by them with open arms. Dabangg,Rowdy Rathore,Singham,Agneepath etc were made for a different target audiece and they too were accepted by their respective target audience. Byomkesh Bakshi was made for the plex audiences and yet completely rejected by the same plex audience. DDD will go the same way!

Anuj

Talking of ANURAG KASHYAP, he seems to have broken the norm and come up with a BOMBAY VELVET which has got more of an urban touch than some of his other films. Although over-rated Ranbir is always a downer, BV might just be something to watch out for.

"I prefer that then sitting through a Kashyap film on stinking poor and their life-style." ~ by this utterly laughable and ridiculous logic of a tasteless movie watcher, most AB blockbusters of the 70's portraying him as a slum dweller or an underdog should be "stinking films" and so should the likes of Satya,Parinda and Company. Ironically, the same films watcher calls himself a Rohit [comment deleted partially because it contained a personal attack] fan!

Anuj

If at all film-makers are interested in catering only to multiplex audiences alone (for commercial reasons), I'd rather have them make slick, gripping songless action thrillers like Kahaani & Baby or low budget content based films like Paan Singh Tomar, Jolly LLB & OMG than make large scale big budget commercial films about rich brats in pretty locations dealing with their nooby, childish day to day problems in an attempt to "rediscover life"...total bull

Gokul

Man,this comment section is full of judgemental [comment deleted partially because it contained a personal attack] passing off their opinions as facts.
The movies still has 2 more months to come out [comment deleted partially because it contained a personal attack].Pass out your 'Verdict' then.Yeah I also wasn't impressed with the trailer but then I didn't like ZNMD's promos too which I ended up liking.So just keep your 'verdicts' with you till the movie comes out.

Gokul

Man,this comment section is full of judgemental idiots passing off their opinions as facts.
The movies still has 2 more months to come out you fools.Pass out your 'Verdict' then.Yeah I also wasn't impressed with the trailer but then I didn't like ZNMD's promos too which I ended up liking.So just keep your 'verdicts' with you till the movie comes out.

Anuj

"The movies still has 2 more months to come out you fools.Pass out your 'Verdict' then." ~ as commented by a [comment deleted partially because it contained a personal attack] who almost said the ditto statement before the release of ROY :P

Gokul

That is just the point I'm making.These bollywood films like Roy and Villain get your hopes up only to disappoint while films like NH10 and DLKH which you are not much interested in turn out to be good.So wait,till the film comes out watch it and then give your opinion.Don't judge an entire film by a 2 minute trailer.

Gokul

And why is everyone here talking about DDD and not the biggest movie of the year coming out this friday???

Fan

@Gokul : see my comment "Let's hope it delivers ". So I have not made a judgement. It's Anuj who has predicted the future. He's as confused as a child with a red and yello lollipop, which one to lick (first).

BTW : didn't catch your joke about the biggest block buster releasing on 24/4?

Gokul

@Fan Not a joke dude,Age of Ultron coming out this friday

Anuj

"He's as confused as a child with a red and yello lollipop, which one to lick (first)." ~ desperate attempt at forced sense of humour by a [comment deleted partially because it contained a personal attack] Fyi, thus far every single one of my prediction on this site has been near spot on. Not that i wanna boast, but yeah some [comment deleted partially because it contained a personal attack] need to be shown their worth!

Fan

@Gokul: OK, I see. I was on the Hindi film wavelenghth and so started wondering which block buster we are talking about.

@Anuj: [comment deleted partially because it contained a personal attack]

Anuj

@Pankha: [comment deleted partially because it contained a personal attack]

Cut it off, people. Stop calling each other names. Yes, as juvenile as it may sound calling each other idiot and fool is also name-calling and not nice. Not to mention, the name-calling itself is not a very grown up thing to do in he first place. Same goes for name-calling film cast and crew members. Yes, pea-brained, dimwitted and so on and so forth fall in the same category too.

Please stick to discussion about films, trailers, film music, etc. Your abuse-free opinion, even if disagreeable, is accepted here. But not your opinion about other members of the audience. Don't make wogma look like a street fight.

With that out of the way, why are Anurag Kashyap films being branded as being about "stinking poor and their lifestyle"

Except for That Girl In Yellow Boots, the rest hardly qualify as being about the poor. And the movie not about the poverty. Even the poverty in Gangs of Wasseypur doesn't last very long, right?

I am ok with films being about poverty, I was wondering what about Anurag Kashyap films make them seem like they are about the poor.

Fan

@Meetu: in Hindi we have a saying, laaton ke bhoot baaton se nahin mante.

Unless you speak with Anuj in the language he understands, the message does not pass through. As simple as that. Check out all the threads of Anuj and one would notice that he starts off on an unpalatable tangent as soon as he does not agree on a point of view. So one needs to bring out the ludicrosity of his statements by beating him at his own game, otherwise he does not understand.

@Fan Really? You think anyone takes a point well after you've called them names? In my experience, that only aggravates them into misbehaving with more fervor.

Anyway...whether it is one of the lot or all of us, let us just refrain from personal attacks and focus on discussing what we love and what brings us together - films!

ha ha ha...just read this tweet, thought it was relevant.

Anuj

@Meeta : Lol...u really wanna be taking a sarcastic tweet by a user by the name of "Bollywood G****" with utmost seriousness and relevance? :P
