Shubhra Gupta, critic with The Indian Express gave the film two stars. She wrote, "Scads full of cash must have been needed to take the cast from as diverse places as Portugal to Sydney to Kerala, and there’s no been stinting there. But a story with freshness and zing? Missing in action. It talks of the ‘desh ke dushman’ as did movies of the 70s and 80s; dated dialogues which combine ‘Musalmaan’ and ‘vatanparasti’ only add to the casual bigotry which is becoming common parlance these days".

War, directed by Siddharth Anand, has released in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu in 4000 screens. The film also stars Ashutosh Rana, Vaani Kapoor and Anupriya Goenka.
