I feel like I have a schizophrenic life. In the morning I saw Margarita with a Straw that left me elated and in the evening I saw Mister X which left me feeling ridiculous. With the first I stayed immersed in the experience for the entire day, with the second I guffawed loudly at the sheer idiocy of the whole thing.
The story is feeble. A plot is hatched to kill the CM so that the cop can become the Commissioner (Really? that's the extent of his ambition??). This involves framing an honest cop who is about to marry his colleague. The baddies think they have killed him but thanks to some hocus pocus including a test tube of blue water he becomes.. ta da! Invisible Man! Only that he can be seen in daylight. You would think he would have sense to stay out of the sun but no, a good suntan is important so Invisible Man doesn't use his magic tricks at all except to dunk his girlfriend in the pool in a supposed to be romantic moment which had the hall in splits. Also, he is invisible but if you dunk paint on him or foam you can see him. He must really be the lamest Super hero ever made. That's all you need to know of the story. Seriously.
Emraan Hashmi is in a now you see me now you only see my top half or hand or leg kind of role and naturally sleepwalks through it, Poor Arunoday Singh is made to look old for some reason as the villain. His stick out ears stay a nice shade of red from embarrassment at being stuck in this movie. The new girl Amyra Dastur as a conflicted cop looks pretty and anguished. She also has a good running style and nice boots.
The special effects make you laugh and the songs are a cut paste job from various other Emraan songs.
The only thing that can be said about this film is that it is fast paced. Maybe everyone says his or her lines too quickly so that we don't dwell on the insanely stupid stuff going on. My advice? Do the disappearing act from any theatre showing this movie.
