Finally one of Bollywood's most desirable - Deepika Padukone's heavily publicized and marketed debut in Hollywood - XXX : RETURN OF XANDER CAGE hits the marquee and must say it certainly makes the fans of Deepika and nerds of this mindless but harmless and completely escapist third chapter of the blockbuster franchise dancing in glee.

Releasing in India before anywhere else in the world seems t be motivated by the superb 100 crore performance of Vin Disel's FAST AND FURIOUS 7 in India and of course Deepika's status in this part of the world as a superstar. Gladly the tall and the beautiful Deepika looks gorgeous in her well toned up tattoo clad body and also boost some good screen presence making the Irrfan Khan's and Anil kapoor's of Bollywood jealous.

Brazenly customized and tooled for maximum B.O. power XXX : RETURN OF XANDER CAGE sees extreme athlete turned government operative Xander Cage (Vin Diesel) coming out of self-imposed exile and on a collision course with deadly alpha warrior Xiang (Donnie Yen) and his team Serena Unger ( Deepika Padukone), Harvard 'Nicks' Zhou (Kris Wu), Adele Wolff (Ruby Rose), Talon (Tony Jaa) in a race to recover a sinister and seemingly unstoppable weapon known as Pandora's Box. Recruiting an all-new group of thrill-seeking cohorts, Xander finds himself enmeshed in a deadly conspiracy that points to collusion at the highest levels of world governments.

Finding any iota of intelligence in this comic video game genre type of a movie will be foolish so better talk about Deepika and Vin Diesel though their hard core fans will watch it irrespective of whatever we say but still.

As said earlier, Deepika gets a reasonable screen presence and her character Serena Unger even has a back story to tell and the icing on the cake is our dear Deepika shares a good chemistry with Vin Diesel who comes with his trademark deadpan humour and bad-ass attitude.

Director D. J. Caruso helms this third installment as ordered by the doctors of pop corn actioners, the chases the action sequences are mind blowing and the 3D is effective. Hindi dubbing is decent.

From the other actors Donnie Yen is terrific followed by Tony Jaa. Samuel Jackson is fine. However the villain is a huge disappointment and all this hacking and satellite dropping for a while threatens to give a felling of action without tension even for the nerds.

All said and done. XXX : RETURN OF XANDER CAGE may be a celebrated escapism of international standards for the thinking audience but for fans of Deepika and Vin it has enough pleasing moments of pop corn action fun that boosts Deepika's commercial reach as an international star that can kick some butts in the action genre.
