Panipat movie review

Story of the movie:

The film is based on the Third Battle of the Panipat in which we see the fight between Sadashivrao Bhau (Arjun Kapoor) and Ahmad Shah Abdali (Sanjay Dutt). It starts with Sadashivrao proving himself worthy to Nana Peshwa Rao (Mohnish Bahl). After capturing Udgir fort, Sadashiv gets married to Parvati (Kriti Sanon) and gets allotted to manage the finance of the Maratha kingdom.

To defend the Mughal emperor, Najib-Ud-Daula (Mantra) invites Ahmad Shah Abdali (Sanjay Dutt) to India. The dreadful Ahmad Shah challenges Maratha Empire hence initiating the 3rd battle of Panipat. The rest of the story revolves around the battle and how the Maratha empire fought with Abdali & the gang to defend their valour.

Star Performance:

Arjun Kapoor has delivered a brilliant performance in the film. Kriti Sanon shines even in a relatively small role. Sanjay Dutt did absolute justice to his role. While, others like Mohnish Bahl, Padmini Kolhapure, Zeenat Aman, Sahil Salathia and Kunal Kapoor have also done good jobs.
