About the Movie Panipat

Based on the famous clash between Maratha and the Afghan army, Panipat is based on the Third war of Panipat. As it is known that the huge army of Afghans combined with other allies like Rohillas and Daula, Marathas fought bravely till death. As per historians, this war has seen the highest number of deaths both cold-blooded and defensive in a single day.

The Marathas did everything they could to strive against the huge cantonment of Afghans. But the betrayal by their nearest people leads to their defeat. And thus the Maratha clan ended to rule the northern part of India. From this period, the rule of Afghans and Mughals started in the northern part of India.

Panipat Movie trailer

The trailer is action-packed, full of patriotism. But Gowariker had succeeded to keep the betrayal in the trailer. So the crux of the story related to whose betrayal caused the defeat of Maratha has not been shown in the trailer. So the audience has to wait till the end of the movie to see the betrayal as the tagline suggests that there is a huge betrayal.

Panipat movie review

Even though Kriti Sanon and Arjun Kapoor have acted for the first time in a periodic drama or something related to action, their performance was up to the mark. And the remaining experienced actors have shown that the charm has not been faded with age for them. Especially, Padmini Kolhapuri and Zeenat Aman have still the power to attract the audience towards their strong performance.

Casts of Panipat

As per the tradition of Gowariker, this movie also consists of a huge star cast. From Zeenat Aman, Padmini Kolhapuri to Kriti Sanon, it is like the merging of three super heroines of their times. Thus this movie has a very strong and beautiful Starcast. As Kriti Sanon reprise a pivotal role of Parvati Bai, Zeenat Aman and Padmini Kolhapuri will be seen in the characters of Gopika Bai and Sakina Bai.

Similarly, the male cast is also power-packed with Sanjay Dutt in the character of Ahmad Shah Abdali and Arjun Kapoor as Sadashiv Rao Bhau. So the protagonist is Arjun Kapoor, Kriti Sanon, and Sanjay Dutt. Even Mohnish Bahl will be seen in the epic film for the first time as Nana Saheb Peshwa.

The budget of this movie

The money invested in making the lavish sets of this movie and other requirements cost around 100 Crore INR.

Box Office Collection Updates

Till now, the Panipat movie has earned about 25.62 crore INR in its three days business.

Movie Verdict

As it shows the courage and valor of Maratha’s along with the passion of Afghans to get the things they desire, it is a completely action-packed movie. But the action is for a reason to save the motherland. The visual effects used to create the war scenes and also the designs used to create the sets and costumes were beyond perfect. So I would rate it 4 out of 5 stars.
