Samreen Tungekar of Bolly spice has stated “Ram Gopal Verma had made it clear that Satya 2 is not a sequel to Satya, and he has evidently made no attempt of making this film look like a prequel or a sequel too. Satya 2 stands as an independent story and does well for itself as a film.” The Telugu version was dubbed in Tamil as Naanthaanda and reshot with Tamil actors.
