The Ahmed Khan film has mostly been panned by critics. The Hindustan Times review said, “Baaghi 3 has absolutely nothing to do with geo-politics or, for that matter, common sense. There might be a nation and army pursuing Ronnie, but they would rather be killed than shoot first. The reason why people are being kidnapped from south Asia and being sent to Syria is pulpy to the point of being hilarious. Vijay Verma’s Pakistani character gets his accent from Hyderabad for some reason.”

Baaghi 3 also stars Ritiesh Deshmukh and Jackie Shroff apart from Tiger and Shraddha. Disha Patani appears in a song.
