Though Satyameva Jayate got a good opening, it released to poor reviews. NDTV's film critic Saibal Chatterjee gave the film 1 star out of 5. "Satyameva Jayate, truth be told, is a film that has no apparent reason to exist. Not a shred of it is original. At best, it makes a silly spectacle of beating a dead, decomposed horse. At worst, it is a product of a tendentious mind. Satyameva Jayate is nonsensical, with nary a nod to logic," he wrote.
Satyameva Jayate is a vigilante drama directed by Milap Zaveri. The film also stars Manoj Bajpayee and Aisha Sharma.
