3G - A Killer Connection Review

What's Good:
The creativity that’s poured during the titles; The unintentional comedy.
What's Bad:
Pitch-less dialogue delivery, effortless dubbing (voice-over), many songs and repetitive thrills throughout. The acting part is understood.
Verdict:
Go for 3G if you plan to go with your partner and want to re-assure them, that you'll love them genuinely and throughout.
Watch or Not:
Watch it if you like Sonal Chauhan in a bikini; vicious love-making scenes and haven't seen Fiji.

Plot Summary

There are 4.3 Billion mobile phone users in the world. Every minute 60 thousand 'Phantom Calls' are received worldwide. These calls have no known source of origin, no numbers and cannot be traced. Some people believe that these calls are spirits trying to connect to our world! 3G is the nightmarish story of Sam Arora and Sheena, a couple, who become victims of a series of events when Sam buys a 3G enabled second hand phone in Fiji islands while on a holiday. One night they receive a Phantom Call which changes their lives forever. They must face the unbelievable reality that the phone is somehow responsible for all that is happening to them and around them. The only way to stay alive, it seems is to unravel the mystery of the phone. But as the hours burn on, that becomes harder and harder to do. Technology is a part of our lives, what happens when technology wants to take our lives? 3G embodies the horror of a recurring nightmare that draws inspiration from the insecurities of modern life. In spite of all our technology and sophistication, we can't escape the unknown. 3G get ready for the killer connection!

With a few chills and fewer thrills, the 'spirit' fizzles here, with little left to toast!

Somewhere out there was an ambitious plot that went mind-bogglingly haywire. What we are left with is a tacky production that becomes a tele-comical excuse for Neil Nitin Mukesh and Sonal Chauhan’s many, many vicious lovemaking sessions (one distasteful scene involves sucking of finger in a bathtub where Neil goes on to place a ring on the lady's finger with his tongue. Yes).
Critic Score: 1.5/5

The actors share a warm chemistry nonetheless. Mrinalini Sharma doesn't get much to do. Asheesh Kapoor is wasted. On the whole, 3G doesn't work despite potential in its premise.

Good idea, lousy execution. Nothing we haven't seen before, in various films that dabble in the weird-things-happen-to-nice-people territory. 3G cobbles them together and delivers them in a standard Hindi movie format. Which means you keep getting yanked out of a scene that's meant to frighten you and plonked into a song-and-dance routine. Which means more bikinis, more beaches, and more surf.

This ‘Killer Connection’ lacks connectivity! In all, ‘3G’ works in spurts and due to its performances – and Neil Nitin Mukesh is mostly responsible for that. However, there’s a sense of a connection being snapped somewhere. One will sit through the film but will be left wondering where he/she missed something.
Critic Score: 2/5
