Ananya BhattacharyaRe-making a film of some other language in Hindi – and declaring the same before the film is released is actually a very clever move that director Vishesh Bhatt had made. So in case one has watched the Spanish thriller ‘La cara Oculta’ (‘The Hidden Face’) – one might actually not want to go through the Hindi version of it. ‘Murder 3’, you guessed it correct, isn’t worth that much the effort. Debutant director Vishesh Bhatt has done a moderate job of directing this thriller – but it is an exact copy (okay, re-make!) of its Spanish counterpart. 'Murder 3', also, ends on a note which is a bit abrupt. The film has its share of thrills and chills in parts, but doesn’t really leave a dent on one’s mind eventually.
In a nutshell, ‘Murder 3’ is a onetime watch, only if you are a huge fan of Aditi Rao Hydari. This film too, will probably fade into oblivion leaving only its music on people’s lips for a long time to come. Two out of five from me for ‘murdering love this Valentine’.
