Vikram Bhatt, the man who is famed for horror movies’ genre, comes again with another horror flick for the viewers. Creature 3D is his latest offering for you starring Bipasha Basu and Imran Abbas Naqvi in main leads. This woman-centric horror movie carries once again Bipasha on board on Vikram’s platform. With Vikram, she has given hits in the past. Let’s see, if she succeeds in getting another hit with Vikram with Creature 3D.
The movie revolves around a folklore which says that there are Brahmarakshas (half men and half animal creatures) which still exist in Indian forests.
Creature 3D unzips in Himachal Pradesh where you find a lodge in the forest surrounded by lush greenery. The hot heiress Aahna (Bipasha Basu) is a go-getter. Honeymooners and the guests are now under the attacks of the dangerous creatures. Police chief Karan Malhotra (Imran Abbas Naqvi) comes in and blames on the wild animals instead of Brahmarakshas. Now Aahna decides to stellate the scores with these hazardous creatures. There begins a fight with a 10-feet long dangerous creature with Aahna.
Vikram Bhatt’s story is interesting, but it does not carry any novelty at all. Screenplay carries flaws. The film shows the inspiration has been taken from Hollywood horror movies. Editing is below average. Cinematography is fine. Music is just about okay. Direction is average.
Bipasha Basu does a fine job. Pakistani actor Imran Abbas Naqvi makes his Bollywood debut. He is okay, but the film focuses Bipasha all over – it’s a woman centric film. Rest of the cast is average.
Creature 3D is not much appealing. Viewers want novelty now though Vikram Bhatt is an apt storyteller in horror genre. Now he has to bring some novelty to impress the audiences.
