Every year the population of sleepy Lake Victoria explodes from 5,000 to 50,000 for Spring Break, a riot of sun and drunken fun.

Every year the population of sleepy Lake Victoria explodes from 5,000 to 50,000 for Spring Break, a riot of sun and drunken fun. But this year, there's something more to worry about than hangovers and complaints from local old timers; a new type of terror is about to be cut loose on Lake Victoria. After a sudden underwater tremor sets free scores of the prehistoric man-eating fish, an unlikely group of strangers must band together to stop themselves from becoming fish food. less
PIRANHA has been touted as "The best 3D movie after AVTAAR"; a 'Burj-Khalifa' claim in itself. Honestly speaking, such is the subject of the movie that it would never appeal to universal audience. 'Piranha' belongs to a niche-genre and the success or failure of the same always depends on how well it appeases a particular target-audience.
The buffet called 'Piranha' has only two dishes to serve: scantily-clad girls doing chiggy-wiggy and flesh-eating fishes tearing apart humane ensemble. Sadly, sexy scenes looks raunchier than eye-popping and gored ones are not jaw-dropping, but easily loathed.'Get WET and WILD' sequences are only added in the flick to raise the mercury level in sex-o-meter; at the best it only reminds us of "MTV-Grind" which was aired almost a decade ago. The blood-shed by zillion of Piranhas fails to tweak the scare-factor; on the contrary, torn flesh and broken body-parts scattered all over leaves a distasteful scar on audiences' mind.
Not even a single scene justifies the need of 3D version, so the tall claim mentioned above fall right flat on its face. The makers of PIRANHA prove themselves as meager braggadocios, as neither the story nor the underlying twists and adventures make any impact. Uninspiring star cast makes matter worse, where all the leads plays perfect example of bizarreness. While Elisabeth Shue was decent, Kelly Brook and Riley Steele were nothing more than porn stars. Jessica Szohrs oomph was cold and Steven McQueen needs a quick crash-course in acting. Special effects were just adolescent by Hollywoods high standards.
Maverick Verdict: If you dont have anything else to do this weekend, then Please take rest and gear up for festive weekend ahead. PIRANHA (3D- Who Cares, by-the-way?) beats HISS hands down, by huge margin. Even if you love sea-food, still STAY away from the men-eating-fishes and brain-eating-Movie, and be IN PEACE!!!
