In his review for NDTV, film critic Saibal Chatterjee gave the film 1 star out of 5. "This is John Abraham's comfort zone. Going on the rampage is all in a day's work, be it springing to the aid of a young man wrongly confined in a police station and tortured or a girl assaulted by a policemen. Veer might be a ruthless killer for a cause but he is a good guy with a good enough reason for his marauding ways," he wrote.
