Mr X, nothing but a flawed imitation of Hollow Man

com/video/x2ipono[/embed] Adding insult to the injury is the below par and amateurish CGI animation which is a far cry from the advanced animation we have grown accustomed to

It is ironic that the medium, something which is so pivotal in the story and genre, is so poorly executed

One wonders whether this has been done intentionally or the director stopped caring

 Moreover, in terms of music, it is again a muffled affair; Bhatt’s movies usually have melodious tracks and memorable songs to hum to, but there isn’t a single track worth remembering

  The worst song in the movie is “You can call me X” which enhances the mediocrity of the movie

Other songs such as “Tu jo hai” are average songs

The damsel in distress, Siya Verma played by Amrya Dastur, Hashmi’s love interest cum fiancé and fellow inspector in ATD, puts forth a painstaking performance

It’s obvious that Bhatt chose the female lead in terms of eye candy rather than acting skills

Dastur’s dialogue delivery, convoluted and confusing sense of morality and ethics in the movie confuses the audience

In one of the scenes, she is hell bent on protecting the nemesis because of her strong sense of duty and justice, and a few random kisses later from her invisible fiancé, she’s seen swooning over him and falls head over heels in love with the protagonist

This love-hate chemistry dilutes the already insipid and bland movie plot

Unfortunately, exotic and scenic foreign locations and crystal clear beaches are merely not enough to save this disaster of a movie

Without delving deeper into the story and the plot of the movie, it is safe to say that it is a run-of-the-mill movie

With clichés in abundance and no story to back itself, it is a spineless and a spectacular sinking ship, rivalling the likes of Titanic

While I was watching the movie, half of the audience left before the climax, proving how boring the movie is

Take my advice, stay as far away from Mr X as you can

 Bollywood is a master artisan when it comes to making masala and romantic dramas but when it comes to sci-fi, it fails stupendously, struggling to merge science fiction and religion

You would be better off watching Avengers 2 releasing this weekend, as opposed to Mr X
