CNN IBN: Krrish 3 is an unlikely cocktail of cool, shiny technology and outdated treatment. I'm going with two-and-a-half stars for the film, and an additional half star just for Hrithik Roshan, which makes it three out of five for Krrish 3. The film is ambitious but flawed. It is, however, consistently watchable for its terrific lead star who you can't take your eyes off, even for a moment. Rating 3/5

Bollywood Hungama: KRRISH-3 is a technical marvel .On the whole, KRRISH-3 has the ingredients that make a splendid superhero film, besides being Rakesh Roshan's most accomplished work so far. Besides a riveting plot, the film scores brownie points thanks to the strong undercurrent of emotions, the clash between the protagonist and antagonist/mutants, the awe-inspiring visual effects, the larger-than-life entertainment and of course, Hrithik Roshan, who is matchless in this avtaar. It's a Diwali bonanza for moviegoers across the globe and is sure to conclude the celebratory period on a high. BLOCKBUSTER. Rating 4.5/5

Indicine: Does Krrish 3 justify the hype and anticipation? Yes. Does it have any flaws? Yes, but they are very minor flaws and can be easily overlooked because of the high dose of entertainment it offers in regular intervals. Hrithik Roshan owns the film and how! Krrish 3 is worth a watch just for Hrithik’s enigmatic screen presence as Krrish. He knocks it out of the park. If you are in the mood for entertainment this Diwali, go inject yourself with a dose or two of this highly entertaining film. Rating 4/5

Hindustan Times: Krrish 3 is ambitious and exciting. Sadly, it’s also derivative, clumsy, convoluted and far too long. The two main flaws are the story and the music. The action is terrific but the special effects range from tacky to impressive. Krrish 3 isn’t a patch on the best superhero films made in Hollywood but it is a step forward for Bollywood. Somewhere in the future of this franchise, the superhero concept and the requirements of mainstream Hindi movies will merge seamlessly. Until then, cut the Roshans some slack and enjoy. I’m going with three and a half stars. Rating 3.5/5

Times Of India: With a visually riveting and emotionally engaging story, intriguing characters, sweeping VFX (unseen thus far on Indian celluloid) Rakesh Roshan's ambitious dream lives up. Yes, it's hugely inspired (by the Bats, Spideys and Wolverines of the West), but our superhero has his own 'X-factor'. Even with all the high-octane car crashes, explosions and 'animatronics', the philosophy is the force behind it all, yet, never overpowering the story. For sheer vision, bravado and superlative execution, this one soars to new orbits. Latch on to this cape for an exhilarating ride. Note: You might not like this film if sci-fi, fantastical films are not your scene. Rating 4.5/5

Mumbai Mirror: Krrish 3 is a film for kids. Despite the relentless violence and a clobbering of the senses, there's nothing here for anyone older than age 9 (let's hope they still believe in science over god). Once you accept this, it's a film easier to digest. And you won't even question where Krrish 2 went. Rating 2.5/5

Bollywood Life: All in all, Krrish 3 is a sincere attempt to raise the bar of superhero movies in India, but it has eventually turned out to be an indulgent affair that can keep kids (and Hrithik Roshan’s ardent fans) entertained over the long Diwali weekend. Don’t walk in the theatres with the expectation to get an engagingly hatke story and you are likely to come out with a smile that comes from watching your kids happy and giggly. Rating 3/5

Rediff: Krrish 3 could have been a much better film if it had been a tad more original. The blatant plagiarism from other superhero films, the absolute lack of creativity, has made me lose respect for the makers and the film itself. In conclusion, after watching Krrish 3, all I can say is that I need a therapist. Rating 3/5

Raja Sen: A film ostensibly made for kids but one so abysmal that you should be most concerned if your children (or your nephews or your neighbour’s kids) want to see this. If they grow up actually liking movies like this, well, there goes the next bloody generation, conditioned for mediocrity from the get-go. Rating 1/5

Indian Express: Krrish 3' is a superhero film. It is also a throwback to the creaky family entertainers Bollywood used to make. Superheroes have been around in Hindi cinema for decades, but huge technology jumps have made 'Krrish 3' the slickest of them all, special effects-wise. The rest of it is marred by tackiness. Rating 2/5

NDTV: Krrish 3 is, for the most part, impressively ambitious and dazzlingly competent, if not always riveting. The special effects are jaw-dropping all right and some of the action sequences are superbly well executed. Mercifully, the film doesn’t. It passes muster because of the consistently high quality of its CGI and the undeniable power of a known franchise. In Krrish 3, familiarity breeds an easy connect. Rating 2.5/5

DNA: It has something for everybody. For a superhero film fan there are fantasy characters, a super villain, full scale heroism, plot twists and superb action. For a Bollywood fan, there is enough emotion, drama, love story and songs. The film — aimed more at kids, than adults gets a little complicated at times, making you wonder if the young ones will be able to grasp it. It is highly derivative. It borrows heavily from almost every superhero film you have seen. Rating 3.5/5

IBODatabase: The film was entertaining and ambitious but was also jumbled, confused, dim and threadbare due to the weak screenplay. Hrithik Roshan and Kangana Ranaut did a fab job and they were the saving grace of the film. It’s a one time watch for every kids and teens. The film will surely entertain you but on the other hand it will disappoint some. Its a must watch for Hrithik Fans, coz he is the one to be watched from start to end!! Rating 3.3/5

Koi Moi: The shabby acting, pathetic dialogues, over the top melodrama and zero presence of screenplay could have been ignored but what remains unforgivable is its unoriginal sequences. The lack of novelty is gravely dissatisfactory as the film has absolutely nothing to flaunt except their gusto to try something spirited of this magnitude! Rating 2/5

India Today: In Krrish 3 there is family drama, a desi story, bad guys who won't quit and of course, a superhero! Rakesh Roshan makes sure you are entertained throughout, be it because of the special effects or the masala plot. Krrish 3 is a worthy addition to the franchise. Rating 3.5/5
