Prabhu Deva's directorial is a lame potboiler that delivers neither a bang nor recaptures the silliness which entertained the audience at that time.
Did you watch this movie? How much do you feel it was worth?

Salman Khan's Dabangg 3 is the third installment of the 2010 Blockbuster film Dabangg which redefined the persona of the stardom of Salman Khan.
Producers cashed this success again by making the second part in 2012 which was just a copy-paste version of the first part with a different villain.
Now Salman Khan and co brings the third installment with not much difference but with a backstory of Chulbul Panday and his emergence of becoming the rogue cop.
Induced with action, music, and pulpy punchlines, Dabangg 3 is an unabashed potboiler that delivers neither a bang for the buck nor recaptures the comic energy of the past.
The plot is obvious by seeing the trailer that Chulbul Panday had a love story before meeting Rajjo (Sonakshi Sinha) and there is a villain Bali (Kiccha Sudeep) who is against this.
Later on, Bali kills the loved one and this incident will affect Chulbul's present with encountering Bali again.This nothing new plot is indulged with all the commercial potboilers which a standard Salman film has which is two-three romantic tracks, an item song, a villain and gravity questioning action sequences with excessive slow-motion technique.
Salman is loyal towards his fans, he knows that his loved ones come to see him, they don't bother about the cliche plot. And he is exactly catering to what they require. The star is in every frame, every scene of the film.
A good aspect of the film is its villain which is strong comparing to the previous installment where Prakash Raj was just to get belted by the Hero in the end. Kiccha Sudeep has Bali is given an impressive performance and climax fight sequence between him and Salman is worth a watch.
These are only few good things about the movie. The problem with this movie is doesn't have anything new to offer. This time they tried to induce more humor in the film but it looked forceful. Mind-numbingly long at 162 minutes and disjointed throughout, Dabangg 3 never does the work needed to justify its existence.
The lead heroines don't have much to do in the film to just look good in son sequences.
Dabangg 3 isn’t funny or even entertaining enough to be anything more than an aging hero’s gimmick, hoping that the third time will be as lucky as the first two.
