The movie released with six other films, including “Junooniyat” and Hollywood biggie “Independence Day: Resurgence”. Both these films have not earned favourable reviews, however the critics have lauded “Raman Raghav 2.0” for being a taut thriller with impactful performances by not just Nawazuddin, but also Vicky Kaushal.
Distributed by Reliance Entertainment, the film is produced by Phantom Films, co-owned by Kashyap, Vikas Bahl, Vikramaditya Motwane and Madhu Mantena.
