The story of Baaghi 3 failed to impress the critics. IndiaToday.in’s Narita Mukherjee gave Baaghi 3 1.5 stars out of 5, and said, “Tiger’s abs take the cake, hands down, shirts off. A close second is his squint which is stuck to his face like disbelief on ours ever since we stepped into the theatre. But Tiger Shroff per se isn’t half as bad as Shraddha Kapoor. There’s bad acting, and then there is over-acting. Shraddha’s was bad over-acting. Go figure.”
