  •  Times of India -Madhureeta Mukherjee Rating-6
Love, always, is a question of life and death. And if it's a Bhatt enterprise - Death it is! Swifter and slicker! Devoid of remorse, regret or redemption. Exposing the obsessive in the romantic; the fear in fantasy. Love bloodied with lust and lingerie, sin and satin.

  •  IBN Live -Rajeev Masand Rating-4
Sex, crime, and supernatural thrills have been staple ingredients of the films produced by the Bhatts, otherwise known as Bollywood's favorite B-movie merchants. In his directorial debut Murder 3, Vishesh Bhatt, son of longtime producer Mukesh Bhatt, relies on all three of those staples

  •  Hindustan Times -Anupama Chopra Rating-4
Over the last ten years, the brothers Bhatt - Mahesh and Mukesh - have perfected the art of the high-concept, low-budget franchise. Think Jannat, Raaz and, of course, Murder. Like the other franchises, the Murder movies have nothing to do with each other in terms of story or character.

  •  Rediff -Sukanya Verma Rating-4
Sex and surprise have been the backbone of Vishesh Films for a while now.The prototype follows a brooding man with a fringe, stubble, libido and secret, a vacuous hot woman who speaks in dubbed whispers, a serviceable Pritam/esque soundtrack, a mysterious looking cop aimed to provide

  •  NDTV -Saibal Chatterjee Rating-5
The baton has been passed to a new generation, but they still seem to be stirring the same old sex- sleaze-and-suspense pot at Vishesh Films.But don’t let that put you off. Familiarity does have its uses, especially when it comes thickly coated with a few agreeable surprises.

  •  Indian Express -Shubhra Gupta Rating-3
Can a long telephoto lens be a phallic symbol? As far as Bollywood goes, and that's not too far, that's a rhetorical question. Randeep Hooda replaces Emran Hashmi, who played the male lead in the first two instalments, and emerges the single biggest attraction of 'Murder 3'.

  •  Zee News -Ananya Bhattacharya Rating-4
Re-making a film of some other language in Hindi – and declaring the same before the film is released is actually a very clever move that director Vishesh Bhatt had made. So in case one has watched the Spanish thriller ‘La cara Oculta’ (‘The Hidden Face’) – one might actually not want to go through

  •  Koimoi -Roshni Devi Rating-5
Murder 3 is the official remake of the Colombian thriller, The Hidden Face. Arturo Infante and Hatem Khraiche’s story gets just about satisfactory justice in the pens of Mahesh Bhatt and Amit Masurkar The script is quite good and will keep you on the edge of your seat.

  •  Bollywood Hungama -Taran Adarsh Rating-8
The premier production house, Vishesh Films, has the maximum number of film franchisees to its credit. The super success of RAAZ, MURDER and JANNAT spurred the Bhatts -- Mahesh and Mukesh -- to make hi-concept movies that merged erotica and thrill dexterously.

  •  Outlook -Namrata Joshi Rating-4
Vishesh Bhatt, in his debut film, doesn’t try to display any needless cinematic flair. He bats it very straight. Vikram (Hooda) and Roshni (Aditi) meet in South Africa and fall in love. She lea­ves her job and relocates to India. They live in palatial splend­our at a remote, myster­ious house.

  •  Deccan Chronicle -Khaled Mohamed Rating-4
Truly 'Murder 3' -- a franchise dependent on sex, booze and corpses -- creates history of sorts. It’s the first murder movie without a murder. No lethal stabs, gunfire, poison-laced liquids or strangulations – the staples of killer mysteries here. An adaptation of the Spanish mind-bender, 'The Hidden Face,'

  •  Now Running -Mansha Rastogi Rating-4
Leave aside the actors that the banner has introduced, Vishesh Films is a camp in itself if you just consider the family members involved in the filmmaking business. And while half of the clan is already busy making movies, the Bhatt's launch yet another family offspring Vishesh

  •  Mid Day -Shakti Shetty Rating-3
The so-called Bhatt camp has a penchant for making films that deal heavily with intrigue. However, they don’t always hit the bull’s eye. More often than not, they repeat themselves on the surface. And considering the past two installments, Murder 3 is just another lacklustre addition to the franchise.
