Panipat: The Great Betrayal is an epic war film, based on the third battle of Panipat. Director Ashutosh Gowarikar has written script and dialogues for the movie, which has been produced by Sunita Gowariker and Rohit Shelatkar under the banner Ashutosh Gowariker Productions and Vision World Films. The flick has received a U/A certificate from the censor board and its runtime is 2.53 hours.
Panipat movie story: Set in 1761, the film is about the Maratha Empire, which had reached its zenith with their grip on Hindustan reigning supreme. There was no one to challenge them until an invader set his eyes on the throne of Hindustan. Sadashiv Rao Bhau (Arjun Kapoor), the Commander-in-Chief of the Maratha army led a northern expedition to repel the invading forces of Ahmad Shah Abdali (Sanjay Dutt), the king of Afghanistan.
Analysis: Panipat is a war drama that Ashutosh Gowarikar has impeccably written and executed on screen. He has tried to be as authentic as possible and made it engaging and entertaining, said the audience.
Performance: Arjun Kapoor and Sanjay Dutt have delivered terrific performances, which are the highlights of Panipat. Kriti Sanon has done justice to her role and her chemistry with Arjun is good. Mohnish Bahl, Padmini Kolhapure, Zeenat Aman, Sahil Salathia and Kunal Kapoor have also done good jobs and are among the assets of the film, said the audience.
Technical: Panipat has brilliant production values, which are at par with Hollywood standards. The superb background score, beautiful costumes, picturization, war scenes, editing and dialogues are the attractions on the technical front, added the viewers.

#PanipatReview : One Word- Average. Why- Momentum is the biggest strength of any War film and #Panipat lacks it. Last 40 mins take you on a ride of Biggest On Screen Spectacle of the year but the Negative Climax is damn too predictable. Ashutosh could have made it better. 5/10*

#Panipat is 3 hour Boring Film which is going to be a FLOP at the box office, Yes it has scale but it has very disappointing screenplay & Poor Editing. However, Ashutosh direction is good but other than sanju no actors shines here. "Skip Panipat" 1.5*/5. BO Prediction 50cr.

#Panipat is a MAMMOTH wastage of Money & Resources. Its an amalgamation of many period war drama blockbusters but falls completely flat in execution & performances by the lead actors. Duration of 3 hrs could make audience feel they're in a battlefield. Rating- ⭐️ ⭐️ #PanipatReview
