Tiger 3 movie review
Meanwhile, OTTplay reviewed Salman and Katrina's Tiger 3. In the review, it was mentioned, "Continuing with the weakest links of Tiger 3, it's the story itself where dialogues feel more staged and come off as a bouncer to even understand the plot entirely. The first half stays just on the surface, only to have expectations that it will get better in the second half. But the further drop culminates in the fact that no efforts have been made to make the audience understand what the initial mission was."
