Mumbai Saga, which released on Friday, March 19, 2021, received fair reviews from the critics and the audience.

It had been almost a year since cinemagoers had seen a full-fledged entertainer on the big screen, and Mumbai Saga was expected to be a crowd-pleaser given its popular appeal and a huge ensemble cast including John Abraham and Emraan Hashmi. While promoting the film, the actors emphasised the importance of seeing the action entertainer in a theatre. They were also seen selling tickets at the Box Office in a Mumbai theatre to encourage people to see the movie on the big screens.
The film had a strong turnout in the afternoon and evening shows across Maharashtra on Sunday, according to Box Office India. single-screen cinemas had a 40-50 per cent occupancy rate, with a seating capacity of 50 per cent. If there had been no occupancy limits, the film starring John Abraham and Emraan Hashmi would have earned more money.

The film features John in the role of a gangster named Amartaya Rao, while Emraan plays a police officer named Vijay Savarkar.
