Directed by Rohit Shetty, Sooryavanshi opened to mostly positive reviews. The Hindustan Times review read: “Sooryavanshi isn’t driven by a great script neither does it have any extraordinary suspense that could bring nail-biting moments. Yet, it keeps you on the edge for the sheer joy of watching that over-the-top action. Shetty picks various elements — romance between Sooryavanshi and his wife Riya (played by Katrina Kaif), their relationship with their son Aryan, his camaraderie with the members of his ATS force — and weaves them together for a fulfilling climax.”
Sooryavanshi stars Akshay Kumar in the titular role with Katrina Kaif in the lead. The film also stars Ranveer Singh and Ajay Devgn in cameos.
