'Warning': Nothing to be scared of

Warning is an attempt to make something different in that it chooses an underwater theme with 3D effects. However, trying to be different does not amount to being original. Thus, the film borrows heavily from an English film, Open Water 2: Adrift.

A bunch of friends decide to go mid-sea for a break and celebrate their reunion. These seven friends decide to go for a swim and sure enough all of them jump into the sea leaving only a year old toddler aboard. While they are having fun they don’t realise they have no way of getting back on the yacht because, in their joyous mood, they have forgotten to lower the ladder to board the yacht again.

When they realise, they try to devise ways to climb back while they ward off sharks and struggle to stay afloat. Meanwhile, the little baby is alone on the yacht and crying. As would happen in any reunion, the past incidents catch up with the group. Past enmity too resurfaces. To add some tense moments, one of the girls forced to jump into the water suffers from aqua-phobia.

There is no suspense in the film as such except how many will be sacrificed while efforts are being made to climb back aboard and how many will make it out alive. In fact, the film takes recourse to the original source in plotting its sequence of events.

Producer: Anubhav Sinha, Parag Sanghvi, Sunil A Lulla.

Director: Gurmeet Singh.

Cast: Santosh Barmola, Suzana Rodrigues, Manjari Fadnis, Varun Sharma, Jitin Gulati, Sumit Suri, MadhurimaTuli.

The film is well endowed with good photography and background score but despite a readymade subject and 3D effects to play with, it is the treatment that is seen to be wanting. The film fails to scare or even cause anxiety in any sequence. Performances range from average to passable.

Warning 3D will prove to be one of those also ran films.
