Movie review: Creature 3D is absolute torture When you set out to make a film about a ferocious creature, the creature in question should indeed look ferocious and not like something that crawled out of cartoon television. Vikram Bhatt's new film, touted as Bollywood's first Creature Feature, obviously suffers from budget constraint, which may explain the tacky special effects. But Bhatt and company ought to have realised their valiant effort to bring a new genre into the desi market would face stiff competition from classier products Hollywood routinely makes. Since the time Jurassic Park saw an India release in 1994, Creature Features have done booming business in dubbed desi versions, too. Creature gets going with a standard plot often associated with such themes. Put in a set of helpless people in a secluded place where help is out of reach, throw in the murderous creature on a killing spree. After the due death count, set up the hero/heroine's showdown with the beast. There has to be a deep dark secret to go with it all, of course. The screenplay moves at a lazy pace before some action kicks in. There is ample scope created to insert melodrama and music. You realise Bhatt was merely rehashing the template that worked for the first Raaz film all those years ago. The idea is to ensure Creature remains a pucca Bollywood potboiler at all times. If you have ever seen a single foreign flick (even in dubbed Hindi version) about gigantic beasts mauling/ clawing/ gobbling humans, Creature is so boring it would seem like torture. The film serves little intrigue and banks on the sporadic jolts courtesy loud music. Heroine Bipasha in a recent interview hoped kids will enjoy Creature. They might just, if only as a bad joke.
