Critic reviews and ratings

  • There are full-fledged military wars in Cambodia because nothing less than a war can do justice to Salman's calibre. There is Salman Khan flying over Al Shifah because helicopters are so passe. There is Bhai launching bazookas because why undermine him with lesser weapons like AK-47. There are five extra actors in the film to support Salman because he needs to outshine all of them. Nothing is measured in Race 3. You ask for a shot of Salman, you're given a gallon of him. Deal with it however you want.

    Critic rating (?)

  • But for all its big moments, 'Race 3' just does not work up the feeling of suspense and intrigue that made the previous masala movies from the franchise a guilty pleasure.

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...is a funny, kitschy and audacious film. In between the action shots (clearly where most of the money has been spent, after bhai), the film tends to make you go 'what the hell just happened' more times than you can count.

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...the film has something for everyone. An action film combined with family drama is the perfect Eid gift from Bhai to his fans worldwide. At close to 3 hours it does drag in places and tauter editing would really have added to the film.

    49

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...is high on style and low on substance. It lacks entertainment value and is a disappointing fare due to its wafer thin plot.

    39

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...is not even boasting of being an intelligible film which has been made to clear the cobwebs in your mind. It is an ostentatious, over-the-top Salman Khan vehicle, made for his fans between the ages of 5 and 60 (like me!). 

    39

    Critic rating (?)

  • Remo fetishizes the cars, helicopters, looming towers, gilded rooms and bars where these characters hang out but he doesn’t extend the same love to the narrative. Storytelling is sacrificed at the altar of Superstar Salman Khan.

    39

    Critic rating (?)

  • If you've seen Race movies, then you will know that everyone double crosses everyone else in really tacky disco, hotel settings. Everyone drives really expensive cars that are shown in wild car chases and expensive cars are blown up without impunity.

    39

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...is an example of a franchise failing to recognise its own strengths and shooting itself in the foot in the bargain.

    34

    Critic rating (?)

  • The unpardonably long movie (160 minutes) has been directed by choreographer-turned-director Remo, who appears to have been too much in awe of his leading man to have actually given him any basic instructions on the sets. The dialogue strains to be funny, and provokes humour in the wrong places.

    29

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...is nothing but a recycled bin of too many car chases, explosions, buffed up characters strutting in slo-mo, and wilted lines.

    29

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...with the lead actor strutting around like a clueless stuntman in the midst of flying bullets and exploding cars, all the high-voltage action is about as exciting as a three-hour-long sitting at the dentist's.

    29

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...is the weakest addition to the franchise, Remo D’Souza’s weakest movie and Salman Khan’s most poorly designed Eid Bonanaza in recent times.

    29

    Critic rating (?)

  • If you felt the previous Race films were cocky, this one resembles a poultry farm.

    29

    Critic rating (?)

  • Salman Khan and company never hint that they’re making a cerebral film, or a film that would offer you anything beyond unabashed entertainment in true Bollywood style. There is an army of actors who swirl, twirl and hurl bullets and dialogues at will. The problem is when the thrilling bits end up comic, unintentionally so.

    19

    Critic rating (?)

  • Fidget-spinner-led forced style, fight sequence in flowing skirt, flying Salman – Race 3 has it all. And of course, the Race brand of twists and turns are neither fun nor make any sense. Nothing unexpected, except for a touch of Baghbaan.

    19

    Critic rating (?)

  • The director, who earlier helmed the dance franchise ABCD and A Flying Jatt, has surely made a visually appealing film but nothing more to it.

    19

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...I got in this family saga of globalised NRI goons is some stale taste of sheer inanity and randomness.

    19

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...Khan plays to the gallery but doesn't look particularly pleased about doing it, wearing a deadpan look throughout. The lesser said, the better about the predictable twists in the actioner.

    19

    Critic rating (?)

  • It’s over two-and-a-half hours of complete drivel.

    19

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...doesn’t merely demand you to leave your brains behind but guarantees you won’t find them anywhere even after the ordeal is over.

    00

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...I’ll just say I walked out bored, tired, scarred for life.
