Commando 3: An Action Packed Delight

Vidyut Jamwal collaborated with Gulshan Devaiah again for his third installment of the popular 'Commando' movie franchise and the duo has once more managed to impress the audience and gain favorable movie reviews with their spectacular performances! The Aditya Dhar directed movie which stars Vidyut Jammwal and Adah Sharma also mark the debut of Angira Dhar in Bollywood. 

'Commando 3' was off to a flying start and managed to maintain it through the weekend but saw a massive drop in its collections through the week. According to the reliable Boxofficeindia.com reports, the film managed to collect a total of Rs 28.15 crore in its first week, although the producers were expecting much more.

The plot of the story delivers well to the Commando franchise. It is quick action-packed and nail-biting. In the movie, upon realizing the impending threat of a massive terror attack, the Indian Special Forces are forced to send their best Commando, Karanveer Singh Dogra (Vidyut Jammwal), to London in order to nab the mastermind behind the operation.

'Commando 3' gets into the thick of things right from the start when a police officer while chasing down a group of misled youngsters, unknowingly stumbles upon a bigger revelation. Indian high command ropes in Karanveer Singh Dogra (Vidyut Jammwal), who is accompanied by Bhavana Reddy (Adah Sharma), to get to the root of the threat and bring the culprit to justice. The duo receives much-needed support from their British counterpart, Mallika Sood (Angira Dhar) in this mission.

The violence in 'Commando 3' is often brutal, bloody and graphic in particular scenes that require some nerves to sit through. However, by ensuring this, the third installment of the series stays true to its core – it delivers heavy-duty action, with raw hand-to-hand combat and swift chases. Vidyut Jammwal aces every action scene and provides us something unique only to his capabilities- his smooth and slick kicks, punches, and backflips. 

The leading ladies, too, pack a punch and manage to keep up with the trained martial artist in Jammwal. It is refreshing to see the women's power they exude after constantly seeing only action boys in hardcore action films. We see films like this pave the way for women in Bollywood to move from merely frequenting in Bollywood gossip columns to revered action-film actresses. Aditya Dhar’s ‘Commando 3’ uses cliché action-thriller tropes such as the hero making a grand entry while saving the ‘damsel in distress’ or scenes replete with heavy patriotic dialogues. The first half of the story has ample action. The second half offers many twists and turns; however, the story often feels stretched and struggles to keep you as invested. 

However, for action buffs ‘Commando, 3’ provides enough to make their adrenaline shoot up. Vidyut steals the show as the daredevil who can stun you with every blow. Apart from the patriotic fervor, what manages to hold your interest is the tension and tact that Vidyut Jammwal adds to every scene with his power-packed action moves. He holds the movie, and undoubtedly the entire franchise together with his powerful performances.
