Marjaavaan has received mixed reviews from critics. In her review for Firstpost, Anna Vetticad wrote, "Marjaavaan is so hackneyed that even the usually restrained Malhotra is driven to intermittent over-acting during its two-hours-plus running time. Deshmukh hams his way through playing Vishnu. Ms Sutaria is bland."

Malhotra, whose last release was Jabariya Jodi with Parineeti Chopra, plays a local thug Raghu in the film to Riteish Deshmukh's Vishnu, a local mafia don. The film reunites the two actors onscreen after 2014's Ek Villain, directed by Mohit Suri.

In an interview with Firstpost, Sutaria called her role in Marjaavaan "challenging." She said, "There is lot of crying and emoting, and especially since my character is mute, I had to express a lot with my hands and sign language. There is more scope to perform differently in Marjaavaan, whereas Student of the Year 2 was lot more fun. I suppose this one was far more challenging,."

Marjaavaan is produced by Bhushan Kumar, Divya Khosla Kumar, Krishan Kumar (T-Series) and Monisha Advani, Madhu Bhojwani and Nikkhil Advani (Emmay Entertainment).
