Raja Sen, in his review for NDTV said that Salman Khan has given "one of the worst performances of his career" in the Kabir Khan-directed Tubelight. He gave the film 1-Star rating and wrote: "Everyone besides Salman is good here, which is again a new thing to write about a star whose screen-presence and spontaneous charisma has carried him through many a horrid film."

Tubelight also stars Chinese actress Zhu Zhu, late actor Om Puri, child artiste Matin Rey Tangu and Salman's brother Sohail Khan. Shah Rukh has a cameo in Tubelight.
