Sooryavanshi is directed by Rohit Shetty, who is known for his high-octane action films. The recently-released film also stars Ajay Devgn and Ranveer Singh in cameo roles. For those who don't know, Akshay Kumar's lead character Veer Sooryavanshi was first introduced as an Anti-Terrorist Squad (ATS) officer in a cameo role in Ranveer Singh's 2018 film Simmba. Ajay Devgn headlined first two films - the Singham series - in Rohit Shetty's cop universe.
In his review for NDTV, film critic Saibal Chatterjee gave Sooryavanshi two and a half stars and wrote: "For Akshay Kumar, from Bell Bottom to Sooryavanshi, this performance is no more than a hop and a skip from one set to another. His gait, as always, is a veritable stunt in itself: a cross between a model in the middle of a catwalk and a superhero about to take flight. It is aimed at his fans. If it works for them, who are we to carp?"
