Reception edit

Critical reception edit

Jaspreet Nijher of The Times of India gave the rating of 4 out and wrote "The film is a huge effort for the Punjabi industry to emerge from the tag of comics. Though it requires more depth in its building up of the commoners to becoming warriors, the story engages with its grand cinematography and martial display in the climax. The music is another highlight that captures with its undertones of Mughal influence and Sikh hues."[5] Sukhpreet Kahlon of The Indian Express gave 3.5 stars out of 5 and wrote "Beginning with a wide historical perspective that looks at the origins of Sikhism, Mastaney moves towards the rise of the Sikh empire. Placed within that perspective, it almost feels like an origin story, with stories of Maharaja Ranjit Singh and the glory of the Sikh empire to follow."[2] Nidhi Pal of Amar Ujala gave 3 out of 5 and praised performances, cinematography but criticised music.[6]
