The film opened to largely mixed reviews from the film critics. In his review for NDTV, film critic Saibal Chatterjee gave the film a 2.5-star rating and wrote: "Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior is impressively mounted and the climactic sequences are first-rate. But too much artifice and too little authenticity is the film's bane."
Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior has been directed by Om Raut and it has been co-produced by Ajay Devgn and Bhushan Kumar. The film also stars Pankaj Tripathi, Sharad Kelkar, Luke Kenny and Neha Sharma in pivotal roles. The film opened in theaters on January 10 and it clashed with Deepika Padukone's Chhapaak at the box office.
