a film churned out by Bhatt Camp, fails miserably. Initial frames appeared as
if the movie might build up an interesting plot of ATD’s (Anti Terrorist
Department) efforts to save the Chief Minister’s life but later turns out to be
a mere flick of illogically knit sub-plots of vicious conspiracy, saviours
turning out to be murderers, treachery, betrayal, power-hungry dirty games,
flashes of romance (though it is hardly romantic), and the main plot of journey
of Raghuram Rathod to be the invisible Mr. X. Irony is, Mr. Invisible is hardly
invisible, dominates the screen space most of the time.
his girl friend Sia (Amyra Dastur), are part of ATD. Raghu dares to risk his
life to save a group of people kept as hostage by a terrorist group. Sia,
reluctantly allows Raghu to risk his life (since she is in love with him).
There are moments of passion dispassionately expressed between the two, even
when Raghu proposes to her and commits to enter into marital relationship.
Before their dream could turn into reality, Raghu is provided with an
opportunity to save Chief Minister, whose life is under threat from a terrorist
group. But that opportunity turns out to be a trap for Raghu. He finds himself
in a big problem, where he is not given a choice but asked to do something
which he doesn’t approve of. Corny sub-plots and events lead Raghu to become
invisible Mr. X who can be viewed in UV light / Sunlight/ Neon light. And there
starts the journey of Mr. X taking revenge with those who made his life hell,
played with his dreams, and destroyed his very existence itself.
at all. Sia who claims that Raghu is her only emotional anchor believes at the
spur of the moment that he is wrong and starts hating him. And later when she
encounters the invisible Mr. X, she infers him to be Raghu just with a simple
touch with the invisible. She is able to relate with the Bheeni Bheeni Khushbhu
of Raghu and declares to ADP and others that Mr. X is none other than Raghu. It
is ironic that Mr. X’ body retains the original fragrance even after the
accident or chemical treatment of his body. Sia is not surprised / shocked to
learn regarding Raghu being alive. She does not even try to understand what he
went through, but still knows very well that when and how he can become
visible. Sia is shown to be a die-hard honest officer, but neither her heart
functions nor her mind. She responded to him with great acrimony most of the
time. And Raghu realizes that his transformation to Mr. X is not for his love
but to initiate his revenge saga.
the time. The logic??? The invisible person doesn’t need to take bath, doesn’t
need to change clothes, but definitely does need love. Even when the whole
refinery has caught fire, a telephone line is intact. Raghu who survives this
fire is still strong enough to make a call. Neither his appearance change nor
his jacket. Ah… The height of idiocy…
able to pull off his character. Tanmay Bhatt (Polo), a hacker, is just a filler
in the plot.
through Mr. X – to tell a love story or a story of revenge saga or a sci-fi
thriller …the film fails in all of them. One can neither fall in love nor
empathize with the characters.
audience for granted and messes up completely with Mr. X. My rating of 1 out of
5 goes due to the song ‘Tu Jo nahin…’
