"Commando 3" Review: A Well-Choreographed Action Entertainer Marred By Weak Story

Mohnish Singh |Nov 29, 2019

Commando 3 stars Vidyut Jammwal in the lead role, an actor known for pulling off action sequences like none.

After the huge success of Commando (2013) and Commando 2 (2017), filmmaker Vipul Amrutlal Shah has rolled out the third instalment of the franchise, titled Commando 3. The action entertainer stars Vidyut Jammwal, Gulshan Devaiah, Adah Sharma and Angira Dhar in lead roles. Before you plan to book your tickets to watch the film on weekends, here is what STARBIZ reviewer has to say about Commando 3.

Story: Buraq Ansari (Gulshan Devaiah), who lives in London and owns a restaurant called Bukhara, is an evil man. He runs a conversion racket in India that brainwashes innocent Hindu boys into committing violence in the name of Allah along with other Muslims. Ansari plots to carry out a deadly terror attack in India. Upon realising that a massive terror strike is underway, the Indian Special Forces send Commando Karanveer Singh Dogra (Vidyut Jammwal) to London to track down the mastermind and nab him. What happens next forms the crux of the story.

Critical Analysis: Commando 3 is directed by Aditya Datt who has previously helmed such movies as Aashiq Banaya Aapne (2005) and Table No. 21 (2013). His latest offering scores well in almost all the departments, but where it fails miserably is its story department. The story of Commando 3 is paper thin with no ingenuity. More often that not you feel that the writing team has rehashed the previous two instalments of the franchise. The screenplay is also weak and so are the dialogues which are completely nondescript.

Talking about performances, Vidyut Jammwal proves his mettle once again. The kind of action sequences that he has pulled off in Commando 3 are almost impossible for other actors to carry out. Having said that, the actor does need to work on his expressions to look even more convincing.

Gulshan Devaiah, who plays the negative role in the movie, is impactful in his character. He looks thoroughly evil and dreadful and stands out with his excellent performance. Female lead Adah Sharma, however, fails to leave any impact. She does not fit in her role properly as seems struggling at several places. Angira Dhar looks beautiful in the film but does not get a meaty part to play.

Commando 3 has been shot on a lavish scale. Cinematography of the film is excellent. Tight editing ensures that the film remains pacy throughout. Production value of the action entertainer is quite rich. Had the makers come up with a strong storyline, Commando 3 would have been an excellent film to watch. Having said that, the success of its previous two instalments will definitely benefit it at the box-office.

Final Verdict: Commando 3 has some flaws, especially in the story department, but it has enough masala to keep you entertained throughout its runtime. Well-choreographed action sequences, breathtaking cinematography and strong performances from Vidyut Jammwal and Gulshan Devaiah make Commando 3 an interesting watch. I am going with 3 stars.
