On the whole, RACE 3 is high on style and low on substance. It lacks entertainment value and is a disappointing fare due to its wafer thin plot. At the box office, the movie will take a jump start due to Salman Khan’s star power and accelerate over the weekend, post which, the business will see a sizeable drop. The film will entail losses to the distributors.


Rating: 2/5

Watch it but with no expectations! Even if you’re a Salman Khan fan, this will let you down. On the whole Race 3 is not entirely unentertaining but it is majorly disappointing. Starring an uninterested Salman Khan, the movie is for those Bhai fans who have watched Tubelight & Jai Ho in theaters.

Race 3 is nothing but a recycled bin of too many car chases, explosions, buffed up characters strutting in slo-mo, and wilted lines. The same character who had a ‘bad feeling’, also uses the word ‘so tacky’. Well, what else would you call a film which doesn’t do justice to its finest asset, Anil Kapoor? The superbly fit Kapoor is a left-over from the previous Race flicks, and he was an absolute hoot in both.


Rating: 1.75/5

To be fair to him and to D’souza, some of the whodunnitandwhy in Race 3 is genuinely engaging, but the film needed more where that came from. Besides, the narrative style is tired and ends up adding nothing new to the Race franchise. Everyone and everything looks pretty and is dressed pretty in Race 3. The evidently expensive production design and the visuals by DoP Ayananka Bose – especially that aerial shot of vehicles in a desert looking like ants from high up above – give the film its polish.

You know what would have added depth to that polish? Saif Ali Khan and a better laid out screenplay.


Rating: 1/5

As usual, 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. But I am intrigued to know what Abbas-Mustan, who helmed the previous two parts, thought of this one. Never were the men in white so sorely missed!

Gloss and glam are expected to mask an appalling film, but it’s really difficult to sit through 160-minutes of terribly bad filmmaking. Even Tom Struthers’ (Tiger Zinda Hai, Dunkirk) action choreography is dull. As for the rest of the cast is concerned, I feel for Bobby Deol and Jacqueline Fernandez. Race 3 is a mere show-reel for Salman Khan fans. Celebrating Eid at home is likely to entertain you more.


Rating: 2/5

There is not a semblance of a script (guess the writing team got an Eidi). As for the dialogue writers, they must be awarded. Each dialogue beats the other. Sample these — The Lion doesn’t believe in making enemies; Don’t open your dil open your Dell (computer); Sad very sad, there is no cure of foolishness; If you are protected by God, then none can touch you. There is a full book of these gems but to whistle for those, you must visit a theatre near you. The film is absolute stressbuster that is meant to be seen and taken in lighter vein.


Rating: 2/5

If it counts for anything, Abbas-Mustan helmed the past two outings with such finesse that this film looks like a shabby stepchild of theirs. There is none of the fun, twists, and turns. Laced with oodles of melodrama, this is soul-less and predictable. The unintentional comedy is unforgivable because we have come to expect better from the movies, even our superstars.

Deccan Chronicles

Rating: 1/5

Race 3 begins with the most cliched introduction of seven masterminds, which is a trademark of the franchise. Speeding cars, slow motion action, an occasion to celebrate in every ten minutes, the film has everything glossy barring the story. Perhaps, it is the worst of the Race franchise too. It lacks the feel of Abbas-Mustan’s twists and turns. Race 3 is avoidable. Strictly for Salman Khan fans!


Rating: 1.5/5

Some of the Race 3 action, the credits tell us, has been choreographed by Thomas Struthers, the stunt coordinator of blockbusters like Black Panther, The Dark Knight and Dunkirk. He simply isn’t given the raw material needed to turn the film into an outing to remember. Our humble guess is that Struthers would want to forget Race 3 in a hurry. And so would we. Try telling fans of Salman Khan that this film is best avoided. An impregnable wall is what you will hit.

Vroom, vroom? No, vamoose!

Rating: 2.5/5

Race 3 is a treat for Salman fans but it ends at being just that. There is no reason why you shouldn’t buy the tickets to watch Salman Khan doing what he does best. But if you go in expecting to watch the third film of the Race franchise, you might not be too pleased with the way it has been treated.

  11. Salu nahi challu Reply

    Bechara sallu tubelight jalake race lagake Bhi khuch nahi banewala. Ab kare to kya Karen.

  12. I told before the movie release… it will be a big flop. Only eid holidays can save salmans race 3, it would be difficult to earn 100 crores if race 3 didn’t had eid holidays. Collections will be less than 150 crores so it’s a flop movie according to audience reaction.

  13. Race 3 vs zero
    Race 3 opening 26cr
    Lifetime 180cr
    Overseas $13M
    Workdiwde gross 350cr hahaha

    Zero ..opening 34cr
    Lifetime 325cr
    Overseas $35M
    China $50M
    Worldwide gross 1000cr

    Hahaha too much fun . bas dekhte jao

  14. Theater owners are making money on this film. They have put theater exit fee and audience is paying triple the ticket prices to leave the theater to save their lives

  15. Race 3 – which becomes Lace 3 when any of its two ladies appear on screen – is an atrociously brainless movie. Even by our appallingly low standards of popular entertainment, this one takes the beefy cake. Its existence single-handedly diminishes the intellectual capacity of humankind over 160 minutes. It is made by a choreographer who thinks he is a director, and yet boasts of perhaps the worst soundtrack of all time. It has 8 music directors and 10 lyricists, one of which is Salman Khan, who I’m sure is behind the poetic depth of “nobody knows what the future holds, let’s give it our best, I found love, love, love.”

    Its plot is the cinematic equivalent of a blood clot, and its box-office performance is expected to financially boost a film industry that has become the personal playground (and footpath) of its ageing superstar. Khan, lovingly known as ‘Bhai’ to his unfortunate fans, is so cocksure of his logic-defying fame that he has finally dropped all pretense as an actor and become a ventriloquist on screen – his lips are so paralyzed that his voice always appears to be coming from somewhere else (the dictionary definition: “typically from the dummy of the person or an animal”).

  17. Don’t believe these negative reviews….movie is a complete entertainer…go watch and decide urself

    • @Nitin
      Sab log movie dekh ke decide karenge toh Bahubali 2 ka bhi record nahi bachega!
      Reviews bhi matter karte hai!

      • Yes, Reviews does matter a lot. Half of the people decide to watch movie after seeing reviews specially family audiance and to cross 200 or 300 cr these audiance helps a lot.

  18. Race 3 is better than hits like varun’s judwa,golmaal again,hny,dhoom3 etc

  19. Khichdi pakhi nahin bikhari log mangna suru kardiya, jitna log hahahaha karaha hai na sab salman ka stardom se jalte hai ya pagal hai. Phele dekhlo movie phir comment karna achcha ya bura.

  20. I wonder whether it is time for bhai to quit doing movies. or else he should do only 1 movie per year or every 2 years. and that too with very good scripts. also his fitness is bad. the best physique he had recently was in kick. rest r vfx help. it hurts to see him doing movies without a good story.

    Right form the trailer, everything looked out of place and it has just been proved.. Hardly it can be seen each & every critics giving negative review of a film and that shows how POOR this film is… Feeling sad for Sallu.. With such an immense fan following, he shouldn’t be used just as cash-cow of some absolutely horrible films like Race 3 or Dabbang 3 (Dabbang 2 itself was a torture) …

    Anil kapoor and Bobby deol are real villains of the film. 👊👊👊👊😂😂😂😂😂

  25. 300 corore life time dont be panic guys theater jaye movie dkhe critics ne to sholay ko bi 1 star diya ta nd i am now sure movie bht achi hain thts why critics ko ni smjh aayi

  26. I have watch the movie yesterday.I was very excited for the movie & I love watching salman movies since wanted.After reading so many reviews my expectations were low before going to theatre.But the movie was one of the major disappointment for me.I don’t want to rate it but I could compare it with some movies which I hated like anything (Happy new year, tashan, Chandni Chowk, tees mar khan, Mohan jodaro,jab Harry meet Sejal, to name a few).
    Above r the movies which I was excited to watch in theatre after seeing the trailer but were huge let down.I consider race 3 among that race of movies.
    For me now business of movie doesn’t matter as it is salman movie it could still do 175+ crore of lifetime.

  27. bhai ye race 3 ko excellent btane wale ko koi hospital me admit karao….khi bechara tehel na le….😂😂😂
