In his review for NDTV, film critic Saibal Chatterjee gave 1.5 stars to Fukrey 3. He wrote, “Varun Sharma dominates the proceedings, but Choocha’s antics have lost their power to raise a chuckle. Eye rolls are all they are likely to get. Pulkit Samrat and Manjot Singh are reduced to glorified bystanders in Fukrey 3. Richa Chadha goes through the motions in the manner of somebody who has had enough of the increasingly repetitious rigmarole. So have we.”
Fukrey 3, the third instalment of the hit franchise, is directed by Mrigdeep Singh Lamba. The film opened in theatres on September 28. The star cast includes Pankaj Tripathi, Richa Chadha, Pulkit Samrat, Manjot Singh, and Varun Sharma.
Fukrey was released in 2013, while the second film of the franchise titled, Fukrey Returns came out in 2017.
