  •  India Today -Faheem Ruhani Rating-6
Dhoom 3 may have been the toughest role that Aamir Khan has essayed but it clearly isn't one of his best performances. Having done some supremely commendable work (Talaash, Dhobi Ghat, 3 Idiots, Ghajini, Fanaa, Taare Zameen Par) in the last few years, the actor, who is otherwise known

  •  Koimoi -Mohar Basu Rating-8
It takes a while for the film’s plot to reveal completely. Luckily the writers pack in ample suspense to keep your interest latched to the film from the scene go. While Dhoom and Dhoom 2 both worked because of style and slickness, this one works for its grit. It essentially has all the fun and

Somewhere in the build-up to the film, a character tells another : just make sure my eyes do not move from you for five whole minutes. 'Dhoom 3' is nearly three hours long, and I am here to tell you that my eyes strayed from the screen many, many times.My attention shouldn't have wavered.

Welcome to the flying world of YRF's Dhoom 3. I say so because here a motorbike can fly efficiently and if the need arises then it can also become a speed boat and if you push it further it can also function underwater. Well it's not just cool bikes even an auto rickshaw can fly here!

  •  NDTV -Saibal Chatterjee Rating-6
When the writer of the first two films of a successful franchise takes the director’s chair for a third shot at more of the same that is exactly what one gets: more of the same.This time around, the bikes, babes and brawls formula is dished out even more liberally than before.

  •  Zee News -Aparna Mudi Rating-8
‘Dhoom 3’ is one of the most anticipated sequels in the year 2013, and the reason is that for the first time Aamir Khan plays a negative lead. The director, Vijay Krishna Acharya makes it work in wonderful ways for the movie. It’s an Aamir fiesta all the way!

  •  Rediff -Sukanya Verma Rating-6
The Dhoom brand has always been about the bad guy. It may not necessarily glorify evil but glamourizing its illegal and implausible actions takes precedence in the Yash Raj produced series.If Dhoom worked John Abraham’s Fast and Furious energy for a renewed take on the classic thieves

Because I stay on the 21st floor, these days my liftman - a film buff - and I have some long, enlightening conversations about movies. Enlightening for me at any rate. It doesn't help that the elevator itself is moody and takes its own sweet time to the top. When I got in to get home after watching Dhoom 3

  •  Times of India -Srijana Mitra Das Rating-8
Straight up, Dhoom 3 makes you laugh, gasp - even sniffle. The most emotional of the Dhoom series yet, this is Aamir Khan's show all the way. As revengeful circus star Sahir, whose father Iqbal (Shroff) dies after losing his beloved Great Indian Circus to a stony-hearted Chicago bank, Khan is terrific.

  •  Rediff -Raja Sen Rating-3
Twenty minutes into Dhoom 3, reeling from the assault of cinema so amateurish it’s hard to believe it was put together by grown men, I began to ask myself precisely what this film was trying to be.There was an annoying kid borrowed from the melodrama of Subhash Ghai movies,

  •  IBN Live -Rajeev Masand Rating-5
Dhoom 3 is a sloppily scripted sandwich of hammy acting and cheesy dialogue. Which wouldn't have mattered if it was at least as much fun as the previous two films, because this franchise has never promised much more than cool men on fast bikes, and hot women in short skirts. But the new movie lacks

  •  Bollywood Hungama -Taran Adarsh Rating-9
Picture this... The men are no less than superheroes. They speed across freeways. Glide beneath a racing van on their mean machines. Vroom at improbable speed on their motorbikes. Climb down skyscrapers. Perform acrobatic feats. Escape crashes and resist bullet abrasions.

  •  Hindustan Times -Anupama Chopra Rating-6
In this film, you will wonder how the entire Chicago police force and a SWAT team were so easily fooled by a circus acrobat, and why a bank in Chicago will summon cops from India (Abhishek Bachchan and Uday Chopra as ACP Jai Dixit and Ali) to solve a bank robbery. But ours is not to question why.

  •  India Today -Vinayak Chakravorty Rating-6
Too long, too many chases, too predictable, too much of Jai and Ali, and too little of Katrina. These were some random janta cribs I overheard exiting a first-day, first show of Dhoom 3, and it is apt I stack them first before bringing in a critic's viewpoint. Oh, the film made them gush, too - about

  •  Sify -Sonia Chopra Rating-6
Bikes zoom, girls swoon, cars crash and the background score is always in hyperbole. That’s Dhoom 3 in a capsule, except here, there’s also an avalanche of emotion coming right at you.We see a little boy called Sahir (Siddharth Nigam, excellent) who sees his father commit suicide over 

  •  Yahoo Movies -Rummana Ahmed Rating-8
‘Dhoom 3’ is big on style and completely delivers on the entertainment quotient. The fact that it comes at a cost of suspension of logic at times, I guess is a given. What rankles is that a film with Aamir Khan is expected to have some kind of coherence to rationale. The film’s adherence to plot

  •  DNA -Sarita Tanvar Rating-8
India’s answer to The Fast & The Furious is here. Welcome to the world of jaw-dropping action and stunts never seen before on Hindi screen. Dhoom 3 redefines the word ‘entertainment’ in the grandest way possible. This time, the setting is Chicago and we’re sure producer Aditya Chopra shut down

'Bande hai hum uske, hum par jiska jor...', and Aamir Khan is indeed unstoppable, and that is why he not only manages to shock us everytime, but leaves us hopeful of a new kind of cinema. Saying that Dhoom 3 is a fantastic film won't be explaining it well. Rather saying it's a complete Aamir Khan film

  •  Mid Day -Shubha Shetty Saha Rating-6
Jackie Shroff plays an accomplished magician in deep red financially and he has to impress the bankers to keep them from mortgaging his circus company. He fails and his son Sahir Khan (Aamir Khan) vows to destroy the bank that broke his father’s heart. A riveting can’t-take-our-eyes-off-the-screen kind

  •  Now Running -Mansha Rastogi Rating-6
Dhoom series have always been formula films with the good against the bad, the cops and robbers, the bikes, the stunts, the hotties and handsomes. But with the entry of Aamir Khan to the franchise, YRF has taken the film to another level. The movie brings to fore an emotional undercurrent

  •  Filmfare -Rachit Gupta Rating-6
Look what they made Aamir Khan do. They relegated him to a formula driven Hollywood inspired circus act. Ironically there’s a dialogue in Dhoom 3 that says circuses aren’t meant to be intelligent, they’re meant to be stupid and that’s what people pay money to watch.

  •  India Today -Suhani Singh Rating-4
Aamir Khan has repeatedly said that he chose Dhoom 3 for its script. It must have been a breeze reading it given that half the film's running time is devoted to high-speed chases spread across Chicago, a city whose cops seem thoroughly incompetent if one is to go by the events in the film.

  •  Book My Show -Neha Pinto Rating-7
The question to be asked is not whether Dhoom: 3‘s script was lifted off from a film; the question to be asked is how well it was done. Yes, Dhoom: 3 isn’t just inspired by Now You See Me, but it has taken something very central from its plot and made it, its own.

A sure shot winner! Vrooming with all the necessities of a big-budget solid popcorn entertainment. 'Dhoom:3' delivers exactly what a mainstream entertainment friendly viewer asks for from this franchise. Expertly stylish, fast-paced, loaded with pulse rising death defying stunts

  •  Glamsham -Martin D'Souza Rating-5
is all about Aamir Khan the method actor and a little more about Bollywood's penchant for spoiling a good thing by throwing in some foolhardiness, bending to please people in power and pushing in more songs than necessary. In fact, Dhoom 3 is all about how to begin a movie with a bang, and then ruin it.

  •  Cinema Confessions -Gautam Anand Rating-6
More often than not you judge a film based on the adroitness of its storytelling ways and effectiveness of the story itself. On rare occasions, you have to make exception to this rule simply because the other avenues of film-making are too impressive to ignore or discount.

  •  Daily Bhaskar - Rating-8
There are two heroes in Dhoom 3 – Aamir Khan and the bikes. The whole film rests on Khan’s shoulders, and it won’t be an overestimation to say that he is strong enough to hold the three hours all by himself. Apart from him, there are jaw-dropping stunts, the much expected vrooming of superbikes

Doom Doom Doom! No, I haven’t missed the ‘h’ by mistake. That’s the explosive sound which originated in my wallet when I got to know that the tickets were for Rs 900. Fortunately for me we went for the Rs 250 ticket at a suburban multiplex and it was sponsored by my generous uncle.
