In an interview with IANS, the Mardaani 2 director said that his film was inspired by a number of shocking crimes. “…The horrific nature of crimes that you read about in papers, do shock you and stay with you. My film is inspired from various such incidents that happened across the country. Mardaani 2 focuses on such crimes committed by juveniles, how they are on the rise across the nation and we need to pay heed to this,” he said.

Meanwhile, a Hindustan Times review has praised Rani’s performance in Mardaani 2 and called it a film that is “disturbing, chilling, heart-wrenching and makes you uncomfortable”.
