Panipat Movie Review: Story

Shadashivrao Bhau (Arjun Kapoor), is a commander in the army of his cousin Nanasaheb Peshwa (Mohnish Bahl). After winning a decisive battle in the south against the Nizam of Udgir, Sadashiv is appointed finance minister by Nanasaheb. Concerned about the news that the northern kings are not quick in paying taxes because of them, he intends to send a general to teach them a lesson. Najib-Ud-Daula (Mantra) forms an alliance with Afghan chief Ahmad Shah Abdali (Sanjay Dutt), and now Sadashiv has to occupy the field himself. Nanasaheb forces him to take his son and heir Vishwasrao (Abhishek Nigam) in the attack. His relative, Shamsher Bahadur (Sahil Salathia) and his armored weapons captain Ibrahim Khan Gardi (Nawab Khan), are also with him. His newly married wife, Parvati Bai (Kriti Sanon), and a large number of women and pilgrims also join. Sadashiv plans to use the services of Maratha chiefs established along the way, asking for rations and men, strengthening his army. It also has the support of Sikhs and Rajputs against the Afghan invader.

His plans almost work. He succeeds in taking Delhi. But he still lacks men and rations. He refuses to reach an agreement with Abdali and prefers to fight until his last breath. Despite showing individual courage, the Marathas finally lose the battle of Panipat, carried out by the betrayal of some selfish kings.

Ashutosh Gowariker has made a detailed war movie, showing us how not only the value but also the strategy that makes the difference between victory and defeat. Alliances are the backbone of war. Both parties use all kinds of tactics to attract the greatest number of heads of state. The events behind the scenes are more intriguing than the real war, as they show the political climate of that era. Because of the way the horse trade is made, one feels that nothing has changed. The character of Abdali even comments that the disunity between the Indian rulers will win the war.

In addition to this, the intrigue of the palaces in the Peshwa house is also brought to the fore. It shows how a person’s ambitions can be the source of destruction for everyone.

Intricately designed war scenes occupy the place of honor in the movie. You can sense the noise and the tremors that go through you when the weapons start to burn. The formation of troops, the deployment of multiple devices adds drama to the story. Both Sadashiv and Abdali move their troops as pieces on a chessboard, trying to outdo each other. It is exciting despite the fact that you know that the end will be tragic. Sadashiv is shown coming down fighting like a lion, using every ounce of energy he has to carry as much as possible along with him. Parvati Bai is also shown fighting soldiers storming his camp.

Gowariker has defended the Hindu Muslim unit with the film. Muslim son of Bajirao of Mastani, Shamsher, is Sadashiv’s most reliable assistant and fights alongside him. Ibrahim Khan Gardi is also shown as a crucial component in his war machine. There is no melodrama or jingoism involved, fortunately. It is not shown that Abdali is a religious maniac, but a capable general. Nor is Sadashiv Rao fighting for Hindu pride. He is defending an ideal that is everything: the idea of ​​a nation. In the end, the film conveys the message that war hurts everyone and decimates our best in the process.

Arjun Kapoor is serious as hell in his role. One can feel his anguish, his agony when he realizes that his own personal courage is not enough to change course. Successfully highlights the personality of a warrior who knows the cost of war. Kriti Sanon is not given the role of simple surprise, but rather represents the empowerment of women in the film. His great moment occurs when he successfully negotiates with the character of Zeenat Aman. Sanjay Dutt is as big as life as always and fills the screen with his presence in every scene. His Abdali is not as volatile as Ranveer Singh’s Khilji, but one can feel the madness on a leash. Padmini Kolhapure, Mohnish Bahl et al. continue as reliable as ever.
Watch the Panipat Movie Review for its opulence, its well-choreographed fighting scenes, as well as a colorful history lesson. It may not be quite accurate, and yet it gives you a feeling of place and time.
