Panipat trailer out Sanjay Dutt and Arjun Kapoor film is a combo of Padmavat and Bajirao Mastani

Published

on

The trailer of Panipat has been released. Arjun has given us glimpses of his arduous gym sessions before, beefing up to get the body of a warrior and the actor doesn’t disappoint in the Panipat trailer.

Arjun is playing the role of the Maratha warrior, Sadashiv Rao Bhau in Panipat. Kriti Sanon is portraying the role of Parvati Bai, his wife, while Sanjay Dutt will be seen as Ahmad Shah Abdali on the big screen – the main antagonist. The film is based on the Third Battle of Panipat.

The trailer opens with Kriti Sanon’s voice in the background, introducing Maratha warriors with glimpses of Arjun Kapoor on a murderous spree at the battleground. The trailer then goes on to shed light on Sadashiv and Parvati’s love story. Almost halfway through the trailer, we are introduced to Sanjay Dutt’s character. He has his eyes set on defeating Sadashiv Rao Bhau. By the end of the trailer, Sadashiv and Ahmad Shah come face to face, fighting for their pride.

The film is directed by Ashutosh Gowariker, who has helmed many historical dramas, these include the critically acclaimed Lagaan and Jodhaa Akbar.

Panipat’s trailer, however, comes out as a mishmash of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s films Padmaavat and Bajirao Mastani. Sanjay Dutt’s look seemed to be inspired by Ranveer Singh’s Alauddin Khilji in Padmaavat and Arjun Kapoor too looks similar to Ranveer’s character in Bajirao Mastani.
