Commando 3 opened to mixed reviews on Friday. In his review for NDTV, film critic Saibal Chatterjee wrote: "Touted as stunt star Vidyut Jammwal's biggest release to date on the strength of the number of screens that film is playing, Commando 3 is not only an unabashed rehash of the previous two entries of the franchise in terms of the action sequences but, far worse."
Commando 3 also stars Adah Sharma, Angira Dhar, Gulshan Devaiah and Rajesh Tailang.
