Trailer Review: Emraan Hashmi's Mr. X is cheesy but entertaining

05-03-2015

Be it as a serial-kisser or a kick-ass gangster, Emraan Hashmi has always chosen to do things a little differently. His recent foray into the supernatural in Ek Thi Daayan seems to have prompted him to take on a project like Mr. X. The trailer opens with a monologue and we see a dead Emraan Hashmi come back to life. It is followed by a creepy shot of what appears to be Emraan's mutilated body repairing itself as the actor himself declares that he has returned from the dead with a purpose. But he hasn't come back empty handed, our hero now has the amazing superpower of turning invisible! The rest of the trailer feels like footage lifted from movies like Hollow Man and our very own Mr. India but it has been executed surprisingly well.

Sure the effects don't hold up to close scrutiny but it still doesn't feel as overblown as a Ra.One or Krrish. Emraan is suitably committed to the role while his leading lady Amyra Dastur looks charming. The movie also features an underwater kissing scene with Emraan invisible! What more can you ask from the man?

Directed by Vikram Bhatt and starring Emraan Hashmi and Amyra Dastur, Mr. X is slated to release on the 17th of April, 2015.
