Dabangg 3 Critic Reviews & Ratings

Overall, the film has all the ingredients required for a massy masala entertainer -- good action, music, drama and, of course, Salman packing all of this one story.

  • CNN News18 | Review By - Rajeev Masand | Rating-1.5/5
I left the cinema with a pounding headache and a moment of silence for a promising character that they all but buried. Chulbul Pandey, Rest in Peace.

  • NDTV | Review By - Saibal Chatterjee | Rating-1.5/5
Dabangg 3 is an unabashed potboiler that delivers neither a bang for the buck nor recaptures the comic energy of the past.

Dabangg 3, which has a long back-story of how Chulbul came to be called Chulbul, is not just a dreary mish-mash of the previous ones; it’s also a cringe-fest.

  • Scroll | Review By - Nandini Ramnath | Rating-1/5
Dabanng 3, based on a story by Khan (he has also contributed to the screenplay), makes Tubelight look inspired and gives Race 3 the stature of a neglected gem.

A Joyless, Exhausting Ode To The Superstardom Of Salman Khan.

  • Rediff | Review By - Sukanya Verma | Rating-1/5
Dabangg 3 is the kind of indulgent rubbish that dispels the fundamentals of film-making to highlight its hero's virtue and vigour at any cost.

  • The Hindu | Review By - Namrata Joshi | Rating-NA
Almost ten years down the line, the Chulbul Pandey franchise is feeling weak and worn out.

  • Mid Day | Review By - Mayank Shekhar | Rating-2/5
At close to 170 minutes, with the film still algorithmically alternating between song, action, action, song, song, comedy, action, song... It is a bit of a stretch.

Dabangg 3 is the kind of film where stomping someone’s groin is accompanied by the sound of smashing glass.

  • News 18 | Review By - Priyanka Sinha Jha | Rating-2.5/5
However, it is the villainy a hark back to the tried and tested formula of the 80s actioners that prevents Dabangg 3 from becoming memorable.

  • Gulf News | Review By - Manjusha Radhakrishnan | Rating-2/5
Bite this bullet only if you are fanatical about Khan and he can do no wrong in your eyes. For those who don’t wear those starry blinkers, sit this one out.

On the whole DABANGG 3 is a predictable revenge saga which capitalises on the star power of Salman Khan.

Overall Average Rating - 1.86/5
