Verdict: A high-intensity action thriller that moves at a fast pace.
The third film in the Commando series that launched Vidyut Jammwal‘s career, Commando 3 has been directed by Aditya Dutt. Coming two years after the second film, it brings back Adah Sharma as Bhavana Reddy and introduces all-new characters including a villain who seems to be more dangerous than anyone this Commando has ever seen before.
What’s Commando 3 About:
A terrorist’s message begins to spread amongst the youth, brainwashing them and getting them prepared to commit a deadly coordinated attack to avenge the mistreatment of Muslims in India. With a few leads to follow and the festival season approaching, Karan (Vidyut Jammwal) is called into action. He heads to London with Bhavana Reddy (Adah Sharma) where he works with Mallika (Angira Dhar) and Armaan (Sumeet Thakur) from British Intelligence to find the man responsible for the upcoming attacks and stop it before it happens.
Whether it’s protecting innocent women (Commando), bringing money launderers to justice (Commando 2), or fighting elephant poachers (Junglee), Vidyut Jammwal has shown himself to play characters capable of handling all kinds of missions. His latest one involves fighting terrorism and bringing an end to the villains trying to sow seeds of disharmony on the Indian soil.
In this film, Karanveer Singh Dogra is no longer the ‘One Man Army’ of his debut film but has a team working with him. While Jammwal’s action scenes are power-packed in Commando 3, his two female co-stars Adah Sharma and Angira Dhar also get their own combat sequences. Gulshan Devaiah brings out the viciousness of his character, Buraq, and gives a great performance as a psychopathic leader who will go to shocking lengths to succeed in his acts of terrorism.
There’s little to distract you from the action – there aren’t any songs that will break up the intensity of the film and the twists keep ramping up the tension. There are guns, hand-to-hand combat, and even chase scenes. The filmy dialogues aren’t quite realistic, but they are convincingly pulled off by the actors and fit in with the rest of the movie.
What Could’ve Been Better:
There is an introductory scene where the bad guys’ actions could’ve been depicted in a more sensitive way or avoided altogether as it adds little to the film. There’s also a message of unity in the story but the story itself doesn’t quite live up to the praiseworthy ideals that it supports.
Why You Should Watch:
Commando 3 is a must-watch for Vidyut Jammwal fans as he gives another heroic performance in this film. It is a thrilling action film with a fast pace that has twists you won’t see coming. Even if you haven’t seen any of the other Commando movies, this one doesn’t need you to have much background information.
