Sci-Fi Super hero film Krrish 3 - released on November 1st with packed houses

Rating: 8 / 10

- Harish Jharia

Krrish-3 has been released on 1st November 2013. We watched Krrish 3 on 4th November evening in a multiplex where all the three theaters at the same floor, were showing Krrish 3 simultaneously with full houses.

Krrish 3 is a sequel to the previous two movies 'Koi Mil Gaya' and 'Krrish'.  The theme in this movie has changed a little bit with far more superior cinematography and action shots. The makers of this film proudly claim that all the action shots have been filmed and composed in India. 

Story line:
Koi Mil Gaya: The story of Krish series starts with the first movie of this series 'Koi Mil Gaya' with the lead character Rohit Mehra, (Hririk Roshan), who was suffering from poor intellectual development disorder. Rohit’s late father was a space scientist who succeeded in making contacts with the people of some other planet. Rohit used to fiddle with the computer left behind by his late father. His mother was scared about space science activities, because her husband had died an unnatural death while working on such projects. Rohit accidentally invites aliens from an unknown planet and gets extra intellectual powers from one of the aliens. 

Krrish: In the second film ‘Krrish’, Rohit was wrongly believed to have been died leaving behind his son Krrish, born with supernatural powers. Krrish, subsequently discovers his father under custody of an evil scientist Arya (Nasiruddin Shah) and gets him released.

Krrish-3: is the third film in this series that portrays the life of Krrish, possessing all the supernatural powers. The story of this sequel has been slightly linked to the second movie in the Krrish series. It is depicted in Krrish 3 that the main negative character ‘Kaal’ (Vivek Oberoy) in Krrish 3 was in fact the test-tube brother of Krrish. He was developed by the evil scientist Arya (Nasiruddin Shah) in his laboratories, out of the genes of Krishna’s father Rohit Mehra. 

The story of Krrish-3 now revolves around five main characters that are Krrish (Hrithik Roshan), his father Rohit (Hrithik Roshan), his test-tube brother Kaal (Vivek Oberoi) and the lead female character Priya played by Priyanka Chopda. The fifth character in the film is Kaya played by Kangana Ranaut. The film has become more interesting as most of the characters, except Priya, are possessing supernatural powers. 

Kaal, in spite of having all the supernatural powers is paralyzed all over his body, except his head and fingers. He is confined to a hi-tech wheelchair, from where he controls the huge infrastructure of his laboratories engaged in genetic engineering. Kaal has a peculiar blood group with strong antibodies against any virus or bacteria. He uses his own genes to develop viruses of incurable diseases and their remedial antidotes as well. Then his agents use to spread the virus in a particular population and initiate the outbreak of the disease that spreads fast and ends in an epidemic. Then Kal’s company releases the medicine for the treatment of the same and earns billions out of it. Kaal, then targets India for his evil plans and initiates the epidemic in Mumbai. The story then moves on along this line and finally the ‘good’ defeats the ‘bad’. 

Review:
Krrish-3 is an excellent film worth watching for everyone in the family. However, there is a short kissing scene in the film that has been filmed quite decently and could be accepted by Indian viewers. Hritik Roshan is simply superb and I can say confidently that no other Indian actor could replace him in this character. Hritik has acted yet more effectively in the role of Krrish’s father Rohit, so much so that the viewers would simply forget that both the roles are played by the same actor. Prinka Chopra has also done extremely well in the movie.

Vivek Oberoi has done extremely well in the role of Kaal with incredible face expressions and his deep wonderful voice inherited from his father Suresh Oberoi. The other impressive character is Kaya played by Kangana Ranaut that leaves a strong impression in the minds of viewers. It is clearly evident that Kangna must have done exhaustive workouts for developing the reflexes and body language of a supernatural creature named ‘Manwar’ (Manav + Janwar) a mixture of human and animal. 

Rakesh Roshan and his team have done excellent work in all departments like story, direction, cinematography, music, background scores, sound, editing etc. Krish-3 is a wonderful movie that is worth watching. It is a ‘paisa vasool’ (worth your money) and a must see movie.

Hard water stains are also called lime scales. They are chalky white mineral deposits left behind, after evaporation of hard water drops from the surfaces of bathroom fittings like showers, faucets and taps etc. These stains are so strongly adhered to the surface of the fittings, that they cannot be removed by normal washing by soaps and detergents.

Hard water stains can only be cleaned with specific cleaning agents and of course by following an easy procedure. Bathroom fittings should be regularly cleaned at frequent intervals where there is hard water supplied to the bathrooms. Otherwise, the thin films of lime stains will develop into thick hard scales of the mineral deposits. These thick scales are very difficult to be removed and will also deteriorate the surface of the fittings. 

Here is a simple and easy way to remove hard water stains from bathroom fittings with the help of tools and material available at home. 

Materials and tools required:
  1. White Vinegar
  2. Dish cleaning powder (like Vim)
  3. Round brush or old toothbrush or sponge 
Procedure:
  1. Take some dish cleaning powder and mix equal quantity of white vinegar to make a thick solution
  2. Immediately after making the solution, smear the same generously on the surface of the bathroom fitting, with the help of brush / sponge, covering it with a thick layer of the solution.
  3. Leave it for about 5 minutes
  4. Then rub it gently with the brush or sponge thoroughly, adding additional cleaning solution
  5. Rinse the fitting thoroughly with normal water … You will get a sparkling clean surface
