Panipat is based on one of the biggest battles ever fought on the Indian subcontinent. The Maratha army led by Peshwas traverse all the way from Pune to Delhi and then Panipat for a battle against Ahmad Durrani of Afghanistan. The movie is well researched and it can be seen in the attention to detail given to factors like the sets, costumes, events that led up to this war, importance of alliance formation during a war, war strategies ,human politics like the loyalty test of the alliances and the thirst for position and power and also other factors like arms and food supplies and weather conditions. The movie tried to be as close to history as possible but took some cinematic liberties on the way, and that is where the movie becomes cliched at places .. It seems to glorify only the Marathas while the Afghans are typecast throughout, with the camera angles and background score. The movie is slow paced but never boring, it’s as if we are taken on a walk through history with this epic battle. Not many memorable dialogues or songs (except Mard Maratha) but a good one-time watch. Dutt is fantastic and Sanon the best performer in the movie, Arjun pulled off well except the climax scene was too clumsy! Among the cameos, actors playing Shuja and Najib are worth a mention!
Panipat movie is less dramatized and well researched historic film directed by great director Ashutosh Gowarikar. It's a visual and cinematography treat for people who love historic movies. Ashutosh is famous for character building. He takes lot of time for that. It can be disadvantage because it increases length of cinema. Pace of the cinema is also slow like Lagaan, Swadesh and Jodha Akbar. Those who love masala Bollywood films like Dabang, Babubali, Housefull or Bajirao mastani will feel little bored during first half. 50% time of First half of the cinema is focused on romance and love story. 2nd half of film is exciting. Maratha force starts it expedition of North. How they gather resources. How they create alliances. How they won Delhi, kunjpura. Everything is shown in 2nd half. War scenes are superb. Less vfx and more reality they have shown. Ibrahim khan gardis cannon strength is visual treat. Observe the scene in which Maratha breaks mahadwar of Red fort. It was fantastic scene. Operations of cannons was thrilling. After capturing Delhi they have shown celebration of Maratha force. Man me shiva song remembers Chatrapati Shivaji Maharaj and his hard work. Finally maratha force captured Delhi which was dream of Bajirao and Great Shivaji. In last few scenes Arjun did his best. His dialogues will be remembered forever. Last scene is so emotional and will be remembered in the heart of every Maratha for lifetime. This movie is not only for entertainment but also for understanding our great Indian history. Must watch for everyone to understand Maratha history. This film is far ahead of typical Bollywood paisa wassol masala film. Gowarikar has rocked it again.
Panipat is a fantastic war drama and historical film. It shows the importance of alliances in war and political developments during war. The songs were great and sets were grand showing the royal greatness of those times. Kriti and Arjun have done good job. Sanjay Dutt is prefect fit for the role and his costume is great. Overall a good film and a must watch if you are a history lover.
Panipat, is really worth a watch for all the history lovers and for those curios eyes about our history and the unsung hero's about whom I never had in my books in school days. The movie is great in direction, screenplay, choreography and other technical aspects, expect the part that Marathas never had African elephants. The supporting cast is excellent, Kriti Sanon, I would say has both the hot and light emotional appeal, but not the one to bring tears. Arjun Kapoor has done his part well but guess the bullet didn't reach its target... Sanjay Dutt is brilliant, will remind you of his Agneepat's character, his costume and make-up is excellent and on point. In the first half, I felt one song was unnecessary and the romance of Sadashiv Rao Bau and Parvati is over-powering which could have been reduced to increase the footage for more of the betrayal scenes. The second half of the movie is great, will capture your attention, the battle ground scenes has been executed extremely well, the output is brilliant with all its effects. It again is a historical punch to the political crowd- apne hi apno ko kat the hai... aur kuch log door rehkar bhi paas ajate hai
Panipat is a fantastic war drama. Directed by Ashutosh Gowariker staring Arjun Kapoor, Kriti Sanon and Sanjay Dutt in lead roles. This movie depicts some important historical chapters of India with some creative addings. It narrates the complex politics and importance of alliances in war. The spectacular visuals and grand war sets are highlights of the movie. Cinematography and songs are good. If you are history lover, this film is a must watch.
Arjun Kapoor 's blockbuster Panipat throws light on one of the important events of Indian history - The Third Battle of Panipat. In 1761,Sadashiv Rao Bhau leads the Maratha Army against the invading forces of Ahmed Shah Abdali.One of the reasons why Panipat keeps you hooked is because of the directors depiction of the complex politics behind the battle.The movie depicts intricate workings of war strategies versus might and the importance of forming alliances. Overall - Good movie !!
A MUST WATCH MOVIE... A great Masterpiece !!! This film correctly narrates the historical events in the Third battle of Panipat. It shows the courage and bravery of the Maratha warriors who fought against the Afghans 1000 miles away from their home, even being the victors the Afghans took so much battle casualties that they left back for Afghanistan never to return. The star cast too has done excellent performances. The film depiction is very good, a little romance and drama but full with strategies, politics & war. Hats!! of to the director Mr. Ashutosh Gowariker for presenting to us such a great masterpiece yet again, which will surely educate & inspire the younger generations.
Panipat is an interesting film for anyone interested in Indian culture and history. If you like detailed dramas and epic war movies, you will also appreciate this movie.The movie convinces with a precise story that focuses on economical, political and social aspects of war. The characters have depth, the dialogues are sharp and the detailed precision brings life in Hindostan throughout the eighteenth century to life in authentic fashion. The highlight of the movie is nevertheless the epic battle with intense choreographies, beautiful costumes and some graphic violence.The characters are well played in this movie.
Panipat is a historical Indian war movie that revisits the battle between the Marathas from the south and the Afghans from the north in the eighteenth century.Sanjay Dutt is top notch and he steals the show.Arjun Kapoor is ordinary. The movie would have fared a lot better with a Ranvir Singh for example. Arjun lacks presence but to say that he is calamitous takes it too far.Kriti Sanon has some good moments and holds her role very well. The movie is slow in the beginning but gets better in the second half.
Panipat is a good movie. It is based on a true story, so it has that authenticity. It is not someone's fantasy with cars flying and crashing and unreal and unnecessary action sequences. Direction was really good. Given that it is somewhat a forgotten (or untold) chapter of our history, it would have been a challenge for Ashutosh to build the plot and to bring out the geo political situation of that time. I think Ashutosh did a good job in this. Acting wise it was good if not great. Arjun Kapoor came out to be much better than what I had anticipated, so did Kriti Senon. Sanjay Dutt did a good job as abdali.The songs and the background music are awesome and make to hear one more time.
This year, a movie named Panipat directed by Ashutosh Gowarikar is released. This picture is about the events that took place during the Third Battle of Panipat. This movie impressed me with their story, acting and actions -this part seriously takes Panipat on another level. The film stars Arjun Kapoor, Sanjay Dutt and Kriti Sanon as main characters. Ajay Atul are composing the music for the film and songs are written by Javed Akhtar. The songs are good enough - "Mard Maratha" sounds pretty good in my opinion. The film has a very good picture, hopefully the audience will accept it somehow, the management is very good, this time the opinion is completely dependent on the donors. The movie has been trying to portray the historical form very precisely. The melody or background tune has given the film another dimension.According to history, the Maratha Empire flourished greatly in the eighteenth century. But their happiness did not last forever because Ahmad Shah Abdali, the Afghan king, invaded India and took over. Nanasaheb Sadashib Rao orders his brother to detain him - the name of the war between the two forces is Third Battle of the Panipat. What should I say about these actors they don’t need anyone to introduce to their acting abilities. Please go and watch this film for great story, cinematography, actions, I personally rate this movie with 4.5/5 star’s.
Brilliant and superb movie that has its own strengths and doesn't rely on star power. My greatest fear was Arjun Kapoor but he actually deserves a praise for portraying the character of Sadashiv Rao so well without trying it so hard. Infact, I found his character better than that of Ranveer Singh of Bajirao Mastani and Padmavat.The background music is good, and the songs do support the narrative. Where 'Mard Maratha' and 'Mann main Shiva' gives you a sense of pride, 'Sapna hai sach hai' touches your heart.
This was an absolute privilege to watch a film like this in our times today. The unusual, unheard and little known story of 1769 battle of Panipat has been beautifully rendered on the screen by Ashutosh Gowarikar. Many might complain the length of the film, but one gets so invested in the characters, and more specifically the political dynamics involving alliances, betrayal and finally war, that the length of the movie does not bore.The film is so energy packed, thrilling, emotional and satisfying that it is the real soul of the film.Background music is solid
For those who skipped history lessons at school, the third battle of Panipat was Sadashivrao Bhau's mission to nip the Afghani ruler's, Ahmad Shah Abdali, ambition to scale his path to the Delhi throne in the bud. The Maratha army lost to the Mughals, but only to have Abdali never return to India -- a script that has all the masala of a Hindi potboiler on paper; a hero who loses but wins (Baazigar, anyone?), a barbaric villain (that too Musalmaan), a long-drawn struggle, and a series of several betrayals (reason enough for the tagline: The Great Betrayal).
‘Panipat’ deliver into a significant chapter in history and is a war drama that lauds the unshakeable bravery, courage and the strong principles of the Marathas.The film has been mounted on a lavish scale and it comes through in almost every scene. The costume design (Neeta Lulla) and the sets and production design (Nitin Chandrakant Desai) are spectacular and stand out. The songs add to the mood and are well choreographed.
Panipat movie is less dramatised and well researched historic film directed by great director Ashutosh Gowarikar. In the first half, I felt one song was unnecessary and the romance of Sadashiv Rao Bau and Parvati is over-powering which could have been reduced to increase the footage for more of the betrayal scenes.The second half of the movie is great, will capture your attention, the battle ground scenes have been executed extremely well, the output is brilliant with all its effects.
This film focuses on the third battle of Panipat waged between the Marathas and the Afghans, in which thousands of soldiers are believed to have died. It is significant also because it’s one of those films about a war in which we’re on the side of the vanquished.Few Hindi filmmakers are as fascinated with the past as Gowariker, and his passion for the subject at hand is ever so visible. But Panipat is also a lumbering epic. The script is dense, packed with too much information, too much research, and too many details. Every alliance, every betrayal, every strategy is dutifully and painstakingly documented with an emphasis on pain
This movie is a total waste of time.Bollywood always shows us a different version of history of their own fantasy. They cannot digest the fact that mughal were stronger anyway arjun kapoor sucks, sanju baba is the only good thing abt the movie and sets are good too. Overall awful movie.
Arjun Kapoor and Sanjay Dutt starrer Panipat throws light on an important chapter of Indian history with the battle scenes as its USP.In 1761 , Sadashiv Rao Bhau leads the Maratha army against the invading forces of Ahmed Shah Abdali - The king of Afghanistan.The burden on Arjun Kapoor is too heavy for him though he rises manfully to the challenge.Panipat packs in a layered narrative that delves into the complex politics of the period, the intricate workings of war strategies versus might and tge importance of forming alliances.
Ashutosh Gowariker’s magnum opus ‘Panipat’ is based on historical facts, taking some creative liberties along the way. Shadashivrao Bhau (Arjun Kapoor), is an able commander in his cousin Nanasaheb Peshwa’s (Mohnish Bahl) army. After a victorious battle against the Nizam of Udgir, Shadashivrao Bhau is chosen by the Maratha Peshwa to lead their army to Delhi. Ahmad Shah Abdali (Sanjay Dutt), the king of Afghanistan, has set his inroads into India after forming an alliance with Najib-Ud-Daula (Mantra) with the intention to defeat the Marathas and curb their expanding power.
A great Masterpiece! This film correctly narrates the historical events in the Third battle of Panipat. It shows the courage and bravery of the Maratha warriors who fought against the Afghans 1000 miles away from their home, even being the victors the Afghans took so much battle casualties that they left back for Afghanistan never to return. The star cast too has done excellent performances. The film depiction is very good, a little romance and drama but full with strategies, politics & war.
Definitely a must watch for Indians. Great Efforts of putting realistic touch in everything.The movie is great in direction, screenplay, choreography and other technical aspects, expect the part that Marathas never had African elephants. The supporting cast is excellent, Kriti Sanon, I would say has both the hot and light emotional appeal, but not the one to bring tears. Arjun Kapoor has done his part well but guess the bullet didn't reach its target.Sanjay Dutt is brilliant, will remind you of his Agneepat's character, his costume and make-up is excellent and on point.
