A few audiences were interviewed by ‘Indian Express’, post-release of the film. There were mixed reactions seen. Few said that the story showed the unbiased political leader in is utmost power. But talking about the script, many claimed much could be done to show some incidents in details. But after all, it is a film worth watching.

Talking about the script, audiences seem less satisfied with the end of the film. They expected a better ending to the story. Some also complained about the depiction of violence shown in the film. When it comes to acting, Nawazuddin Siddiqui has done his part pretty well along with other actors in the film.

Though this was expected from Thackeray as it is a story of a man in power and rules a massive state like Maharashtra.

Many other videos from the different part of the country could be seen lately where the Shiv Sainiks are hailing the opening of the film in theaters.
