WARNING in 3D is quite a lot of money drowned in the waters. No pun intended!
For the 3D effect to be maximized, the viewer should at least once, if not a dozen times, feel the water coming on to him or any other effect that gives it the WOW factor.
None of this is forthcoming.
It's a simple story that starts off in disarray. Four friends are invited on a Yatch to the Fiji islands by one of their school friends, who they have not met in years together.
One of the girls makes it to the reunion trip with her one-year-old daughter and husband. The friend who has invited them is the one who was the most out-going of them all. The four are suitably impressed when they land in Fiji Island and are greeted with music, and welcomed aboard the 'Pied Piper' in style. Dude (their friend) wants to impress his long lost friends and he is accompanied on the Yatch by his Fijian girlfriend. CHECK OUT: Anubhav Sinha's WARNING 3D carries impressive reports!
Everything moves on smoothly, till the time dude decides to steer the Yatch into deep waters when his friends are fast asleep. Mid-ocean, his girlfriend wants to jump into the waters. The sails are dropped and the engines turned off. While all make a jump into the sea, dude and the friend, who is come with her daughter and husband, remain on board with the child.
The girl has a fear of water. Suddenly, without a warning, dude grabs his friend and jumps into the water. All of them are now in the waters with only the baby on board.
When the time comes to get back onto the Yatch they realize the ladder, which was already down, was accidently pulled up by dude, who hit the 'red' ladder button.
All seven are now stranded in the water with no hope in sight. The little one is screaming on board, while the dog too jumps into the sea.
The film is well shot with the nervousness of the seven captured well on camera. There is also a fair bit of bikini and sculpted male masculinity. A few scenes where danger and despair are picturized are well thought out. But on the whole, it is not quite palatable, because for almost 10 hours, these guys are in the water without a sense of tiredness.
The most annoying bit is when twice, songs rudely interrupt whatever little suspense the viewer is enjoying. It is like throwing a glass of cold water over your face. CHECK OUT: Shahrukh Khan says, Anubhav Sinha's WARNING 3D will rock
FUKREY find Varun Sharma is being reduced to doing inconsequential roles. That was the fear I had mentioned about this talented actor.
If you are looking for a little bit of thrill, WARNING is quite OK.
