Race 3 has received mixed reviews from critics. While Anil Kapoor is the only star to have been part of all three, Salman Khan has replaced Saif Ali Khan, who played lead role in the first two films. The undiminished track record with films like Wanted (Rs 60.24 crore), Dabangg (Rs 138.88 crore), Bodyguard (Rs 148.86 crore), Ek Tha Tiger (Rs 198.78 crore), Kick (Rs 231.85 crore), Bajrangi Bhaijaan (Rs 320.34 crore) and Sultan (Rs 30.45 crore) had suffered a dent past year with director Kabir Khan's Tubelight (Rs 119.26 crore). It showed good growth on Saturday and Sunday earning Rs 38.14 crore and 39.16 crore, respectively. Race 3 is a distant second followed by his other hits.

Salman Khan's Eid releases, Race 3 has witnessed an upward trend on day 2 by collecting 38.14 Cr at the box office.

Mr Adarsh also posted about Race 3's crucial Monday test. But it remains to be seen how it continues to perform during the weekdays. The plot seems to be confusing - or worse, senseless - the performances poor, dialogues impact-less and music forgetful. So how did his film perform at the Chennai Box Office? Race 3 also stars Bobby Deol, Jacqueline Fernandez, Daisy Shah and Saqib Saaleem in pivotal roles.
