announced his upcoming projects, Creature 3D, India's First 3D Monster Movie
with Bipasha Basu in the lead role and 1920 London, third in the 1920
series.Vikram Bhatt will mark his foray into Marathi cinema with 'Ek Doosrey Ke
Liye', which will be directed by Ashwini Kumar Patil.
My “Gut Feel” and
While I got the first glimpse of trailer of Mr X, I was
thrilled to see the Vikram bhatt joining back with Vishesh Films where originally he belonged and gave decent films
however by them time trailer got over, I got disappointed as it was not
immersive. Now as I sat down to write the preview I checked it twice hoping my
first instinct to go wrong however I got the same feeling where I found it
rusty and monotonous.
Mr. X appears, not
having the X factor of a typical Vishesh Films which promises to be low on
budget, high on content with mind boggling sound tracks…. Vikram Bhatt
lost his flair and this movie seems to be creation of an artist who is not at
his best and put half hearted effort.
I have been a admirer of Vishesh Films and vikram’s films since my growing days however off late
they seems to have lost the golden touch.
Thumps down from my side
for Mr. X and I would give this movie 2.5 out of 5 stars, five days before the
release but ideally love to be proved wrong in this case
