Hate Story 3 Reviews

There are bed bits with generous displays of slithering lingerie on chest-and-thigh, and surprisingly for a time when 'boldness' is being dealt with by archaic moral standards, lots of open mouth-and-tongue action.


When all is said and done, it becomes clear that this attempted sequel is nothing more than a damp squib which fails to do justice to the high standards set by the earlier parts of the series.

Hate Story 3 can boast of some fast paced editing and cool tunes. However, as a Kumar Sanu fan, I am still scarred by the newer version of ‘Tumhe apna banane ki kasam khayi hai’. It’s actually the film’s sleek editing which manages to keep the audience on their seats till the end credits. Hate Story 3 is not a bad watch — if you’re looking for some mindless fun.

Hate Story 3 has so many twists that after a while you start recollecting Abbas Mustan’s hit multi-starer thriller Race. Director Vishal Pandya's story is complex but the way it is narrated is laughable. Once the film is on the verge of unfolding the truth, you are bound to feel that Hate Story 3 is a modified version of films like Raqeeb and Race with a little altered climax.

Hate Story 3 is not the film that you hate when it ends; you hate yourself for venturing out to watch such a film.



Hate Story pushes the envelope so hard, all the contents spill out in a torrential tumble of tantalising power-play set within the world of corporate battles and gender conflicts. This is a most riveting and aesthetic saga of a woman's revenge against the man who's wronged her since RK Nayyar's Inteqaam - except for the fact that Paoli does things Sadhana in Nayyar's film could have never imagined.

...while the film is good-looking, the plot is convoluted. There's bizarre justification for the poison-ivy women and avaricious despots. But then again, these sequels are about erotica being served piping hot Bollywood style.

There are some laugh-out-loud moments when the screenplay plummets to the absolute depths of Bollywood inanity. Apart from such moments of hilarity, “Hate Story 3” has absolutely nothing going for it.


At the end of the day, watch Hate Story 3 only if you want to, and if you've enjoyed the other two films in the franchise.

Hate Story 3 is a shoddy attempt at serving a erotic revenge drama. You will Hate yourself for wasting your time on this Hate Story.

...has a combo of skin show as well as melodious music which adds tremendous value to the project. This film has the potential to woo the masses and the youth, thus springing a big surprise at the ticket window. The film will turn out to be a profitable venture for its makers.


Hate Story 3 is a small-budget thriller that’s designed with the specific idea of catering to the needs of its audience. With the right amount of oomph and risqué content, you can laugh all the way to the bank. Perhaps it doesn’t matter that those paying money won’t be as amused.


...has kept the interest alive in this series.

This movie is definitely a front bencher's delight.

Here is every Indians ultimate tolerance test: sit through this film. I dare you.

Reviewer Profile


The Hate Story movies, due to their box office success, have become a legit series now. This wouldn’t have been as troubling had these films been good erotica, but they are, at best, bland potboilers. It may not say a lot about these films, but it does say something about us: How repressed are we? Now that’s not an easy question to answer.

    Only open sensuality which surrenders to the male gaze can be the reason why the Hate Story series has been going on unhindered since it first started to annoy us in 2012. Hate Story 3 is as ridiculous as its predecessors with greater sleaze and a dumber storyline.

    Industrialist Aditya Deewan (Joshi) has been successfully carrying out his multiple businesses mainly because he gets laid every night, all thanks to his well-endowed wife, Siya (Khan), who was formerly his sister-in-law before his brother died in an plane crash. Out of the blue, their matrimony as well as Aditya's businesses are targeted for sabotage by a mysterious man named Saurav (Grover) who wants to enjoy Siya for a night. (Man, she must be good.) As the husband-wife duo begin to find out about this guy, skeletons start to tumble out of the closet.

    The story, at first, reminds us of Abbas-Mustan's hit film Race (2008), however, the lack of enthusiasm involved in the narration confirms that Mr. Pandya, an amateur, is the man at the helm. Basically, all the characters in the film are antagonists. Maybe because the makers wanted the audience to don the cap of protagonists and escape from the torture that follows after the outline is laid out.

    Unnecessary songs slipped in at various nodes, unpleasant, badly directed, and horrendously enacted sequences of romance add to further annoyance. There is also this rocky background music that fades in and out of every scene that is supposedly major, forcing its audience to use cotton plugs.

    The cast performance is nowhere near satisfactory. Joshi shouts and curses at his co-actors and looks hapless mostly because of the idea of bearing with the incompetent Ms. Shah and of making love to the enemy of acting, Ms. Khan. Grover, too, looks as if he is in a body- building tournament and is purely intimidated by his female co-actors who also seem be to flashing their bodies with great fervor.

    In addition to the poor acting, direction, and dialogs, the climax is unbelievable and will force one to shout.

    BOTTOM LINE: Hate Story 3 is a dark and unambitious story of people who want to share bodily fluids with each other, but want someone to shout "action" at them so that they can go about it. Easily avoidable.
