Just before the movie release, a writer from Madhya Pradesh sought a stay by the court accusing the producer Rakesh Roshan that the story is a plagiarised version of his own script. The court refused a stay, paving way for successful release of “Krrish 3”.

Reviews of the movie have been pouring in and so far critics seem to be having mixed reactions on the movie so far. Saibal Chatterjee of NDTV has given the movie 2.5 stars out of 5.

Indiatoday rated the movie 3 stars out of 5 calling the movie as a cocktail of two Hollywood franchises, Superman fighting evil X-Men. The review praised Hrithik’s dual role as the backbone of the movie.
