Panipat Critic Reviews & Ratings

‘Panipat’ packs in a layered narrative that delves into the complex politics of the period, the intricate workings of war strategies versus might.

  • CNN News18 | Review By - Rajeev Masand | Rating-2/5
Panipat ultimately is overlong and unwieldly. It may have its heart in the right place but its other organs are all over the place.

  • NDTV | Review By - Saibal Chatterjee | Rating-2/5
Ashutosh Gowariker's earnest yet erratic recreation of history is crammed with ill-advised incisions that militate against the very purpose of the drama.

Neither the scattered, stretched plot nor the performances are impactful.

  • Rediff | Review By - Sukanya Verma | Rating-2/5
Panipat has all the meat for a political drama meets war movie. But in Ashutosh Gowariker's failure to process its complexity, the material never rises beyond a mediocre hurray to the Maratha manoos.

A labored history lesson, which stretches for an interminable two hours and fifty-one minutes.

  • The Hindu | Review By - Namrata Joshi | Rating-NA
Sticks to the tried-and-tested format, but falls short of its ambition.

  • News 18 | Review By - Priyanka Sinha Jha | Rating-2.5/5
Panipat disappoints only because of a linear screenplay that fails to rouse dramatic emotions so important to historicals.

Panipat ticks all the boxes but struggles to conceptualise out-of-the-box stunts or sequences.

On the whole, PANIPAT throws light on an important chapter of Indian history with the battle scenes as its USP.

Overall Average Rating - 2.5/5
