The Rohit Shetty-directed film, which released on November 5, opened to largely mixed reviews from film critics. In his review of Sooryavanshi for NDTV, film critic Saibal Chatterjee gave the film a 2.5 star rating out of 5 and he wrote: "To end, the million-dollar question: is Sooryavanshi the film that the doctor ordered for Bollywood's post-pandemic era? The answer is: well, almost."
In Sooryavanshi, Akshay Kumar plays the lead role of Veer Sooryavanshi, a character that was introduced as an Anti-Terrorist Squad (ATS) officer in a cameo role in the 2018 film Simmba, which also starred Sara Ali Khan. Katrina Kaif stars as a doctor and Akshay Kumar's wife in the film. The film also has extended cameos by Ajay Devgn and Ranveer Singh. Sooryavanshi is the fourth film in Rohit Shetty's cop universe.
