Saaho is an action film that also Jackie Shroff, Neil Nitin Mukesh, Mandira Bedi, Arun Vijay and Chunky Panday as antagonists. In his review for NDTV, film critic Saibal Chatterjee gave the film 1.5 stars out of 5 and wrote: "The overheated action sequences - there are far too many of them and each one of them drags on way beyond the limits of endurance - are where the makers of the film seem to have sunk all their money. Really dumb! Had they used only a fraction of the budget on developing a worthy tale to hang their action and SFX extravaganza on, they might have avoided such a massive, unmitigated mess."
Written and directed by Sujeeth, the film opened in theatres on Friday.
