Rating: 3/5. Review by Meena Iyer on Times of India

We have lived with the protagonist and premise of this franchise for 12 years now. That explains the sense of déjà vu while watching the third part. But it also accounts for the audience staying invested in Sarkar right from the start. Having lost his two sons Vishnu (Kay Kay Menon) and Shankar (Abhishek Bachchan) earlier, he has aged but not mellowed.The brooding palette of shadow and light that has been the trademark of this franchise is retained, as is the Govinda chant that works as a terrific background score. The Ganesh-aarti rendered by Bachchan is spellbinding; the iconic actor is also in top form, mesmerizing you with his gray shades and gray irises. For his legion of fans, this one is an important outing. Amit, Manoj, Jackie and Ronit lend weight age. However, the actresses–Yami, Supriya, and Rohini are short-changed.

 

Rating: 2.5/5. Review by Rohit Vats on Hindustan Times

Sarkar’s success relies on Amitabh Bachchan’s charisma, and he knows his character by heart. Despite over-chewed dialogues in the opening sequence, he holds our attention. The same can be said about Ronit Roy who sparkles in an emotional confrontation with Nagre. But there is one good thing about Sarkar 3. Ram Gopal Varma is a step closer to regain his touch. Veerappan showed he is not out of the game, and Sarkar 3 suggests he is on a comeback. He should also be lauded for a great ensemble cast.

 

Rating: 1.5/5. Review by Shubra Gupta on Indian Express

Bachchan shows signs of the towering actor he can be, but is captive to the way his Sarkar has been conceptualized and played: he declaims rather than speaks. And there are moments where you can see flashes of the director RGV used to be when he pulled off films full of creative leaps and crazy flourishes.

 

Rating: 2/5. Review by Saibal Chatterjee on NDTV Movies

Sarkar 3 is after all an Amitabh Bachchan show all the way. He adopts comfortably familiar methods to prop up the most inane of lines and situations. But no matter what he does to liven up the pallid proceedings, Sarkar 3 remains a soul-deadening affair, flashy but flimsy.

 

Rating: 2/5. Review by Surabhi Redkar on Koimoi

For those who loved Sarkar, I bet Sarkar Raj was disappointing, well it continues to deteriorate from that film. Watch it if you’re an out and out Big B fan. In the times of Modi Sarkar, Sarkar 3 is like ‘Kal Ki Baat’. Big B tries hard to keep this poorly scripted film afloat but fails to do so.
