Sooryavanshi opened to mixed reviews on Friday. In his review for NDTV, film critic Saibal Chatterjee gave the film two and a half stars out of five and wrote: “The action is once again ‘designed’ by Shetty himself. So, Sooryavanshi has its share of automobiles being blown up, turning turtle, or ramming into strategically placed obstacles. We saw the best of such stunts all of a decade ago in Singham. Nothing that Sooryavanshi unleashes on the action front catches us by surprise. That apart, the film takes its own sweet time to lay out the dense details of the hero’s mission: the prevention of a repeat of the 1993 Mumbai serial bomb blasts.”

Sooryavanshi is directed by Rohit Shetty. In the film, Akshay plays the lead role of Veer Sooryavanshi, a character that was introduced as an Anti-Terrorist Squad (ATS) officer in a cameo role in Ranveer Singh’s 2018 film Simmba.
