Sooryavanshi opened to largely mixed reviews from film critics. In his review of Sooryavanshi for NDTV, film critic Saibal Chatterjee gave the film 2.5 stars out of 5 and he wrote: “To end, the million-dollar question: is Sooryavanshi the film that the doctor ordered for Bollywood’s post-pandemic era? The answer is: well, almost.”
Sooryavanshi is the fourth film in Rohit Shetty’s cop universe. Ranveer played the role of a police officer in the 2018 film Simmba while Ajay Devgn starred in the cop series Singham. In Sooryavanshi, Akshay played the lead role of Veer Suryavanshi, a character that was introduced as an Anti-Terrorist Squad (ATS) officer in a cameo role in the 2018 film Simmba, which also starred Sara Ali Khan. Katrina Kaif starred as a doctor and Akshay Kumar’s wife in the film. The film has been produced by Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions.
