'Hate Story 3'

Movie Review By 'G9 Divya Solgama'

'Over Seasoned...' 


Bengali actress Paoli Dam along with director Vivek Agnihotri and presenter Vikram Bhatt launched a quickie film ‘Hate Story’ with lots of skin show and foul language attached to it. The movie was an instant hit due to obvious reasons and also a good vengeance based screenplay. The success opened up the lost audience for such type of films, which initiated in the 70’s and 80’s era and slowly moved its base into the C-grade category. Two years later, came its sequel which was presented by the music monarch ‘T-Series’ and had a fantastic soundtrack, due to which ‘Hate Story 2’ also opened up successfully. Sadly, the screenplay lacked the intensity and ‘Hate Story 2’ was more of product driven like most of our sequels are. This year the franchise widens its base by giving us the third film in its series ‘Hate Story 3’, with better actors and a wider release. So, let’s find out whether ‘Hate Story 3’, will manage to hit the bull’s eye just like its predecessor or might be yet another product based film made only to cash in over its past glory.


‘Hate Story 3’ is a story of rich industrialist Aditya Deewan (Sharman Joshi) and his wife Siya Deewan (Zarine Khan). Aditya is invited by another industrialist Saurav Singhania (Karan Singh Grover) for lunch, where Saurav offers him a deal of spending one night with Siya. Aditya threatens Saurav and rejects the offer, after which Saurav starts sabotaging Aditya’s career. What happens next is what the entire film is all about.

Screenplay & Technicalities:

The story is one liner and has shades of films like ‘Indecent Proposal’ and few more. Looks like the makers forgot that ‘Indecent Proposal’ was already copied and two bad film were made on the same plot line – ‘Karobar’ (Anil Kapoor-Juhi Chawla-Rishi Kapoor) & Sauda (Vikas Bhalla-Neelam-Sumeet Saigal). Right from the deal to the revenge story and its revelation, everything in ‘Hate Story 3’ looks fake and unconvincing.  The scenes are over dramatized with no logic or proper detailing attached to it. It’s only that the screenplay has few cat and mouse fight type of scenes which keeps you slightly engaged in this senseless film. The twists in the film reminds you of Ekta Kapoor type of serials. The makers have taken many cinematic liberties which hampers the film in big way. The movie is stretched to its fullest, making it dragging and boring at many places. The cinematography is bad and many C.G.I based scenes look tacky. 

Music & Direction:

Music has been an integral part of T-Series produced films and out here too the songs are popular. ‘Tumhe Apna Banane Ka’ (inspired from ‘Sadak’ & ‘Lal Paree’) is the best of the lot.
Director, Vishal Pandya got a good opportunity to direct ‘Hate Story 2’, where he could have shown us a hard-hitting revenge drama type of films, something similar to ‘Badlapur’. Sadly, he just kept his focus on the skin show and similarly in ‘Hate Story 3’, despite of getting one more change and a better cast, he again to create something good.


It’s shocking to see a good actor like Sharman Joshi in such type of film and he is the only saving grace in this film. Zarine Khan tries hard to look like a seductress beauty and despite of her skin show, she lacks the sensuousness. Karan Singh Grover is fine in his part. Daisy Shah lends decent support, but hams in the performance based scenes. Priyanshu Chatterjee was wasted.

So bol meri 'Filmi Khopdi' iss film mein kitna hain Dum???

So on an overall basis, ‘Hate Story 3’ despite of its big franchise name and titillating posters end up like an over seasoned product, which looks appealing but has nothing more than a bad taste attached to it.
