Commando 3, directed by Aditya Datt, also features stars Adah Sharma, Angira Dhar, Gulshan Devaiah and Rajesh Tailang. The film opened to poor reviews on November 29. Reviewing the film for NDTV, film critic Saibal Chatterjee wrote: "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."
Meanwhile, evaluating the box office performance of Ayushmann Khurrana's Bala, Taran Adarsh stated that the film "continues to attract" cine-lovers over the weekend. The total collections of the film have reached over Rs 113 crore. Bala released last month and is still performing better at the box office. Sharing the performance report of Bala, which entered its fourth week on Friday, Taran Adarsh wrote: "Bala - playing at limited screens/shows - continues to attract ample footfalls over the weekend... [Week 4] Friday 65 lakhs, Saturday 1.35 crore, Sunday 1.71 crore. Total: Rs 113.59 crore. India business."
Directed by Amar Kaushik, Bala is a satirical take on premature balding. It also features Bhumi Pednekar and Yami Gautam.
