quick review:

It is one really long chase sequence, lots of Aamir Khan for Aamir Khan fans and of course you have some smart action sequences. Nothing more than that.

Thumbs down by Anna MM Vetticad, annavetticadgoes2themovies ...The object of Sahir’s hate, the head honcho at the bank he robs, is called Warren Anderson, which was the name of Union Carbide’s chairman at the time of the Bhopal gas tragedy.

Thumbs up by Naresh Kumar Deoshi, Apun Ka Choice ...Dhoom 3 may not be a perfect thriller, but it’s a ripsnorting entertainer, with catchy songs, elaborate choreography, superb stunts, bike chases firing on all cylinders, and a wonderful climax that leaves you high, but not dry. ... full review

Thumbs down by Shalu Dhyani, Bolly Spice ...The earlier Dhoom films may have put style over substance but they were still a lot of fun. This one has neither style nor substance, and is too tedious to be any fun. At a runtime of almost three hours, it is two hours too long... full review

So-So by Vinayak Chakravorty, india today ... It's monster madness, manufactured to leave you in a daze. It's mammoth dumbness guaranteed to be out of your mind no sooner you hit the exit door.
