Rani Mukerji's film opened to decent reviews on December 13. In his review for NDTV, Saibal Chatterjee gave the film three stars out of five and wrote: "Rani Mukherji, reprising the role that she played in Mardaani, is as good as ever. She channels the potent force of the author-backed character to come up with a power-packed performance that is impressive as much for its emotive range as for its restraint."
Apart from Rani Mukerji, Mardaani 2 co-stars Vikram Singh Chauhan, Vishal Jethwa and Shruti Bapna.
