Mumbai Saga opened to largely mixed reviews from film critics. In his review for NDTV, film critic Saibal Chatterjee gave the film 2 stars out of 5 and he wrote: "Mumbai Saga, for all its guts and gore, goes all soggy, and soppy, in the finale. There is a younger brother that the hero is determined to save from harm. Trapped in superficialities and cliched tropes, the film itself could have used a rescue act."
Mumbai Saga was earlier scheduled for a June 2020 release but the production work was put on halt due to the coronavirus outbreak and nation-wide lockdown, last year. The film has been directed by Sanjay Gupta and it has been produced by Bhushan and Krishan Kumar under their banner T-Series. Mumbai Saga, which also stars Jackie Shroff, Suniel Shetty, Prateik Babbar, Gulshan Grover, Rohit Roy, and Amole Gupte in pivotal roles, is set in the Eighties and the Nineties.
