Vikram (Randeep Hooda), comes home one evening to find out his girlfriend, Roshni (Aditi Rao Hydari), has left him. He recalls that he, a struggling photographer, and her, an architect, were in love in South Africa. Vikram got a breakthrough assignment but had to shift to India (Mumbai) for a year. Roshni agreed to give up everything and go with him. The couple lived together in an old colonial house away from the city's hustle-bustle and life was hunky-dory till Roshni's sudden disappearance. Dejected, Vikram soon hooks up with a waitress, Nisha (Mona Laizza) from a bar-cum-restaurant who moves in with him. The cops including Nisha's ex-college mate (Rajesh Shringapure), who loves her, believe Vikram has something to do with Roshni's diappearance. Meanwhile, in the house, Nisha soon begins to hear voices in the bathroom, the water behaves strangely and she even gets scalded in the shower a couple of times. She is convinced there is a ghost in the house...

Perhaps, the most notable killing in Murder 3 is that of the original film - the highly regarded Spanish-Columbian film La Cara Oculta (2011) - on which it is 'officially' based.

One has not seen the Spanish film in question but going through all the rave reviews it has got from reviewers and critics worldwide, one can be pretty sure it does NOT suffer from:

- Unintentional hilarity in the creation of suspense and thrills
- The few actually humourous moments falling totally flat
- A lazily written screenplay flowing loosely and doing little more than keeping La Cara Oculta's basic plot points in mind
- 3 totally inept lead performances
- LOL cringe-worthy dialogues especially the English ones
- Extremely awkward sex scenes
- A relentlessly continuous and ear-shattering, hammering background score to remind you this is a thriller
- A ...

Ah well. I'm sure you get the drift.

On second thoughts, maybe its biggest victim is, in fact, us the audience on whom this drivel is forced.
