Baaghi 2 emerged victorious on the box office despite being poorly received by film critics. Saibal Chatterjee in his review for NDTV said: "Baaghi 2 is more a two-and-a-half-hour stunt show than a genuine piece of cinema." He gave the film two stars out of five. Film critic Raja Sen rated the film 1-star and wrote: "It is a long, painful film capable of giving audiences post-traumatic stress disorder."
The MIND-BOGGLING Day 1 biz of #TigerZindaHai [Dec 2017] and #Baaghi2 hammers the fact that well-made action/masala entertainers will never go out of vogue... The genre worked big time in the past, it continues to attract massive footfalls to this date.— taran adarsh (@taran_adarsh) March 31, 2018
Baaghi 2 is a remake of Telugu film Kshanam. The Ahmed Khan-directed film also stars Disha Patani, Manoj Bajpayee, Randeep Hooda and Deepak Dobriyal. Before the release of Baaghi 2, the producers had announced a third film with the same director and lead actor.
