Commando 3 ‘s story starts with a masked guy giving a provocative speech through a video message. The next few scenes register the fact that the country is on the radar of a terrorist group and they’re planning a Diwali attack. We then meet our hero Karan (Vidyut Jammwal) after a very uncalled for a kid-molestation scene.
Vidyut is sent to the United Kingdom with his old frenemy Bhavana Reddy (Adah Sharma). They team up with Malika (Angira Dhar) to get to the terrorist. They find out that a psycho Chef named Buraq (Gulshan Devaiah) is behind all this. Now, is their information correct or there’s something more to it, rest of the story revolves around the same.
Story of the film includes all the similar ingredients we’ve already seen a lot of times in thrillers. It sets the perfect mood very fast but suffers from a downfall with a similar speed. The second half of the film is a victim of poor writing.
Aditya Datt fails to intact the thrills throughout the film. His Table No 21 is still considered one of the best thrillers to come out of Bollywood. But this one just lacks to evoke any kind of thrill throughout its existence.
Thankfully there aren’t half a dozen songs including a couple of item numbers or recreations. There are just 2 songs, a rap song and a sad song.
Darius Yarmil’s screenplay gets stuck between ambition & entertainment. It’s too ambitious for the script as average as this film. Mark Hamilton’s camera is unable to touch the sky-high bar set by Vidyut Jammwal’s action.
Vidyut Jammwal does what he’s best at i.e. kicking some real as*es. He jumps in the air in to set a kick, but unfortunately, the actor in him dips equal distance south. Adah Sharm’s fake accent could be used as a barometer for how you shouldn’t mimic during vocal training. Gulshan Devaiah is outstanding & the brain outshines the bawn in his duo with Vidyut. Angira Dhar carried one expression throughout the film & that too isn’t well.
Overall, Commando 3 holds no command over the intrigue of its viewers. Even the good portions don’t help the film to at least be in the recommendation zone.
