CNN IBN by Rajeev Masand:
the new movie lacks the required adrenaline rush of a Fast and Furious-type thriller, instead falling prey to the kind of melodrama and over-plotting that doesn't belong here. Ultimately, the film is let down by a convenient script and its inability to deliver solid entertainment. I'm going with a generous two-and-a-half out of five for writer-director Vijay Krishna Acharya's Dhoom 3. All you expect from the Dhoom movies is a thrill ride, but this one makes you feel like you're stranded in rush hour traffic. Rating 2.5/5
 Bollywood Hungama by Taran Adarsh:
Chases and stunts in DHOOM-3 are pulsating and most significantly, trendily implemented. The razor-sharp editing, awe-inspiring cinematography and well designed CGI also merit an enthusiastic round of applause. On the whole, DHOOM-3 is one solid entertainer loaded with attitude and star power that will leave fans of the series salivating for more. It is miles ahead of its predecessors in the DHOOM series. This will shatter previous records and set new ones. SURE-SHOT BLOCKBUSTER. Rating 4.5/5
 Bollywood Life by Vinod Talreja:
And the performances add to the package. There is no doubt that Aamir Khan plays a very convincing baddie, but there is a big secret to his character which won’t be fun to reveal. So let’s just talk less about his character. If you liked Dhoom and Dhoom:2 then you would not want to miss Dhoom:3. Just stop whatever you are doing, grab a bucket of popcorn and go watch the film – if nothing else, for the sake of the suspense and stunts it has. Rating 3.5/5
 Mumbai Mirror by Karan Anshuman:
Liftman: I only push buttons, nothing more. And that's precisely why I blow my savings on a film like this. 3 hours of non-stop energy. Did you see that 15 minute chase sequence involving not only bikes but cars, boats, and helicopters?! It is the greatest chase sequence in the history of Bollywood. What a rush for liftman like me! Rating 3/5
 Times Of India by Srijana Mitra Das:
Dhoom 3 is slightly extensive. But it holds advantages, the first, that sizzling Dhoom tune, all leather, boots and electric guitars, which straightens sagging scenes. The second - sharp performances by Khan, Bachchan  and Chopra, who sprinkles lightness and fun. And the third - Dhoom 3's story with a twist wrapped around it, like the ribbon around a Christmas gift. Merrily unwrap - flying out of the Great Indian Circus, Dhoom 3 is great fun. Rating 4/5
 Miss Malini by Rashmi Daryanani:
Dhoom: 3 is not groundbreaking, but it still has quite a bit to offer and is worth a watch – if you manage to  snag tickets, that is, since it’s surely going to go housefull for some time. Rating 3/5
 Rediff by Raja Sen:
There was Aamir Khan running down the side of a building for no apparent reason. Everything -- repeat, everything -- looked too goofy to be either thrilling or realistic or compelling or even plain fun. Dhoom 3 is a children’s film made for children who’ve never seen a film. How else can you explain this famine of originality? How else can you possibly justify the lack of a single interesting scene right up to the intermission? And how, after that, can you account for Aamir Khan’s blatant exploitation of yet another Christopher Nolan masterpiece. Rating 1.5/5
 Rediff by Sukanya Verma:
Realistically, of course, Dhoom is a fun albeit dumb franchise that is unapologetically nonsensical, intellect proof and relies on the shenanigans of its smooth, superficial villains and their hot pursuit at the hands of police officers. There are two vivid reasons I indulge (and enjoyed) this I know-that you know-that I know (classic Abbas-Mastanism) is because of the cunning and conviction in Aamir’s delivery and Katrina Kaif. Rating 3/5
 Filmfare by Rachit Gupta:
To give you your money’s worth there’s a star cast. There’s Katrina’s great glamour, there’s Uday Chopra’s foolhardy comedy and there’s Abhishek Bachchan’s machismo. There are songs, there’s action and there’s everything you would want to see in a big ticket movie. What’s missing is that something, which makes an Aamir Khan movie a cut above the rest. Rating 3/5
 Zee News by Aparna Mudi:
Dhoom 3’ manages to deliver a typically Bollywood revenge saga in a modern way. The suspense and the emotional quotient added to the speed and stunts make the movie as spectacular as it promises to be. Acharya brings to the audience an enthralling script and executes it equally well. The movie is sure to keep you hooked; go and watch it for Aamir! Rating 4/5
 NDTV by Saibal Chaterjee:
This time around, the bikes, babes and brawls formula is dished out even more liberally than before. So, for the most part, Dhoom: 3 is a high-voltage action flick that relies squarely on known methods of the genre. Dhoom: 3 is fun while it lasts, but it might not leave the viewer with the sense of having watched a film that is truly unique. But watch it all the same for Aamir Khan and the hi-jinks. Rating 3/5
 Indian Express by Shubhra Gupta:
'Dhoom 3' is a victim of both a lack of imagination, and franchise fatigue.' Dhoom 3' is too long and too laboured. The film comes alive in those scenes where good old Bollywood emotion—tears-welling-up-eyes between father and son, and 'ladka'-and-'ladki'—is allowed to come to the fore. Those earlier two films had the right doses of cheese and speed, and that's why they worked. 'Dhoom 3' is more bust than boom. Rating 2/5
 India Today by Rohit Khilnani:
Dhoom 3 is full of loop holes, over-the-top acting and an overdose of action that doesn't fit well all the time. The timing is right so the film will run to packed houses but it's surely not a film that I would recommend as your last outing for 2013! Rating 2/5
 Koi Moi by Mohar Basu:
Dhoom 3 is a definite must watch. Breathtakingly shot with gorgeous cinematography, this edition notches higher than its preceding films in terms of thrills and mostly in terms of soul. You wouldn’t want to miss a defining moment in commercial films of Bollywood. There is all the action and gadgets, seamlessly beaded together but with a story that crackles! Rating 4/5
 First Post by Mihir Fadnavis:
Dhoom:3 will be remembered for being the point where Khan gleefully ignored all of the accolades he’s ever received for being a good actor. He clearly worked extremely hard on his muscles, but every dialogue he utters magically produces ham hocks around the screen.Khan is a good dramatic actor and a great comedic actor, but is not a commercial action hero. Someone needed to tell him to lighten up a bit. This is a Dhoom movie after all. You may have predicted all of the above things, but nothing will prepare you for the barn burning ‘twist’ just before the interval. You can see it coming, but you desperately wish and pray for that to not be the case. But it does come, and you’re left groaning in defeat, wrapping your face with as many palms as you can find. Rating 2/5

 AVERAGE RATING: 3/5 - A Good Movie
