What’s Good:  The film is technically rich in every sense of the word, but unfortunately, the same can’t be told about the execution of its storyline

What’s Bad:  In the guise of makers ‘playing safe’, it’s stories such as these that go in vain once & forever!

Watch or Not?:  For history? Nope. For performances? Maybe. For its technical marvel? Yes.

Following Chand Bardai’s epic Prithviraj Raso, the story in its first phase lays the base between Samrat Prithviraj (Akshay Kumar) & Muhammad Ghori’s (Manav Vij) rivalry to become the ultimate emperor of Delhi.

The second key phase of the story has Prithviraj’s internal rival in Jaichand (Ashutosh Rana) also wanting to capture Delhi to prove he’s better than him.

Little does he know, his daughter Sanyogita (Manushi Chhillar) is the biggest fan of Samrat Prithviraj’s heroics deciding to get married only to him and no one else.

The story faces is that it’s driving at a speed that loses the detailing in the way it’s told. The treatment of the film is just like that History professor explaining Prithviraj’s story in a hurry.

Apart from the fun part, Sanju baba also nailed the ferocious side of Kaka Kanha as well.

Sakshi Tanwar is expressively solid in her little role as Sanyogita’s mother. The transformation she switches between a ruler’s wife and a mother is impeccable.
