About The Film
Vidyut Jammwal reprises his role as a ‘Commando’ who is ready to give his life for the country at the stroke of a second. He is handed over the task of catching a dreadful terrorist, Gulshan Devaiah, who plans to do something big all across India so that the name of ‘Allah’ is etched in the history of the nation in bold letters. Will Vidyut be able to stop this terrorist attack with the help of his team? Or will Gulshan get the better out of him and defeat him in his own backyard? Well, you’ll have to watch the movie to know that.

What’s Hot
Gulshan Devaiah, my man! You’re stellar in whatever performance you do. I hate to see you do fewer roles in movies, but you have outclassed yourself as a mighty villain with this one. One of the strongest portrayals of a negative character I’ve seen in a really long time. You have truly come up with a stand out performance in this film. It’s your devilish eyes, killer looks and suave criminal activities that make the viewer enjoy every penny of their investment to this movie.

Vidyut Jammwal, of course, you’re back to flaunting off your mastery over the martial arts and action stunts. With every action film of yours, I feel you’re putting in more and more shades of yourself out for the audiences to envy and enjoy at the same time. Your stunts are unrealistic, however, when you do it, they all look so suave, classy and believable. Kudos!

Adah Sharma, you beauty! You give in ample opportunity for the audience to laugh out loud, whether it’s your South Indian accent or your idiosyncrasies, you have done great in the minimal screen space that you have got.

What’s Not
Sadly, everything else!

The story of ‘Commando 3’ is stale, redundant and predictable. There is hardly any ounce of screen time where you will go gasping thinking, ‘OMG, I didn’t expect that’.

On the acting part, Angira Dhar, you have been doled out a part which was way below your class and stature. You’ve shown before that you are made for much better characters and not for just giving some blink-and-miss performance in a popular action franchise. I wish you had selected a better film.

Aditya Datt, as a director, I understand that when you’re heading a successful franchise, you don’t want to innovate a lot and would want to stick on to the things your loyal audience would want to watch. But sadly, this has been repeated thrice over. Let’s try some better story and plot for the next ‘Commando’ film.

The music is nothing wow. Not a single song is something that you will end up remembering after coming out of the theatres.

Verdict
‘Commando 3’ is specifically tailor-made for the audiences who have loved the previous two parts of the franchise. That strata of the audiences are sure to have a great adrenaline rush at the theatres. Sadly, the rest can give this movie a miss. Purely a ONE-TIME WATCH. I am going with 2.5 stars.

Box-Office
‘Commando 3’ has not been promoted too much and there is hardly any buzz for the film. However, there are hardly any other big releases this week, which might just give this film a clean window to earn the big bucks over the coming weekend. Action junkies will surely love to throng the theatres to watch this, and you might just see the film turning out to be a sleeper hit. Thereby leading up to a ‘Commando 4’.
