‘Krrish 3’ was released pre diwali. That is a time when people get busy with their family and entertainment takes a back seat. It’s only after diwali that people think of relaxing. Despite this, the movie weekend business was impressive and it proved the solid content of the movie. The perfect fusion between technology and content proved out to be a magnificent start for the movie.

Trade analyst Komal Nahta wrote, “The pre-Diwali period is always considered dull by the industry. But an event film like 'Krrish 3' can change the mindset. Rock-steady! That's the only way to describe 'Krrish 3', given that Saturday was last day of dull pre-Diwali... Historic!”
‘Krrish 3’ casted Hrithik Roshan, Priyanka Chopra, Vivek Oberoi and Kangana Ranaut in the lead roles. While Hrithik played double role and was superhero, Vivek Oberoi and Kangana played roles of antagonists. Critic Madhureeta Mukherjee said, “director Rakesh Roshan – Hrithik’s father – has, in all three Krrish films superbly crafted a fantastical world ‘alien’ to Bollywood.”
