SpotboyE.com gives Suraj Pe Mangal Bhari 3 stars. An excerpt of the review states, "It’s fun while it lasts, but falls short of breath by overstaying its welcome.” The reviewer mentioned that thanks to Manoj Bajpayee and Diljit Dosanjh, their killer vibes for one another gave the comedy the fuel and the fire that it needed to sustain itself to the very end. “The supporting cast, too, is incredibly in-mood, all revved up to roar with the uproar and caress the chaos," the review read.
