Three stories, three storeys and one place. This is what Arjun Mukherjee’s debut directorial movie 3 Storeys offers. The story depicts the deep meanings of life, however dark they may be. Past regrets and the costs people pay for it in their present is interestingly put in this movie divided in three different stories.
The plot isn’t fresh, we’ve seen one-place-multiple-stories before, but the actors did total justice to their characters in the movie. With Renuka Shahane as an old catholic woman who’s lost her son and is still in pain and her unexpected connection to Pulkit Sharma. With Sharman Joshi and Masume Makhija’s chemistry to Richa Chadda’s narrations.
The story lacks the wow factor that makes you turn and twist from the inside. It is as subtle as it goes with a lot of predictable twists in the plot. The end makes you question as to why it happened in the first place.
First story is about an old woman who’s lost her son and seems to be out of her head. Second is an unfinished love story and how the events fold that brings them face to face after many years. Third is a teenage love, which, at first, seems only a simple Hindu-Muslim feud as their parents are dead against it, only later it gets dark but nothing new under the sun there either. If you have watched Shutter Island starring Leonardo Dicaprio, you’d understand how the story flows that shows something in the beginning but entirely something else in the end.
Overall, it doesn’t really match the levels set by its trailer. If you enjoy watching dark stories that lead you on and keep you hanging, you might want to see this one.
We give this one 2.5 stars with a kink.
