After releasing a slew of posters from the film Panipat, the makers are back in the news to embark upon with the most awaited trailer for the film this year. The film’s trailer has actors like Arjun Kapoor, Sanjay Dutt and Kriti Sanon in the lead role and one can find some of the effects of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s film with giagantic sets and huge fuss around it. As you check the trailer, it opens up setting up the great Maratha empire and the Sadashivaro Bhau seen handing over the Peshwa Sword to make him the leader.
Sanjay Dutt is seen playing the Ahmad Shah Abdali role who happens to be a ruthless killer. The trailer of the film also talks about Kriti Sanon and the dutiful wife of the Maratha who is equally competent when it comes to swinging the sword. Arjun plays the Peshwa, it is obvious to see a comparision of him with Ranveer Singh who has already played this role in SLB movie – Bajirao Mastani. In a sense even the character of Sanjay Dutt is somewhere inspired by the Padmaavat’s Khilji played by Ranveer Singh.
Nevertheless, the comparision between the two characters and films would be unfair as both have their own beauties with Ranveer scoring points on the other. Now, talking about the film it is based on the famous war between the Maratha at one end and Aghans on th eother side. The film is directed by Ashutosh Gowariker who has given big time films like Swadesh, Jodha Akbar and Lagaan. His film Mohan jodaro failed to work but it was also a master piece. The film Panipat also has Mohnsih Bahl, Padmini Kolhapure, Zeenat Aman and Suhasini Mulay in the special roles. Time to catch the trailer as under:
