Critics gave Rowdy Rathore a mixed response. Bollywood Hungama’s Taran Adarsh awarded the movie four stars, writing, “If you enjoy masaledaar cuisine, that’s one you should definitely watch. Dhamaal entertainer, dhamaal entertainer, dhamaal amuse” DNA India awarded it three out of five stars and stated, “Akshay is back in action in Rowdy. And in such a way! From the opening scene, the actor seizes control of the movie and maintains it throughout. Simply said, the movie is to Akshay what Wanted was to Salman!” “Fans will appreciate Akshay’s mooch-twirling masala-act but be ready for brutal action – some rather gory,” said Srijana Mitra Das for The Times of India, giving the movie three out of five stars.
