In the past few weeks, we have seen many trailers, but at some point, those trailers fail to keep us hooked throughout its runtime. However, that’s not the case with the trailer of Ashutosh Gowariker’s Panipat.
Panipat is based on the Third Battle of Panipat that took place in 1761. The movie stars Arjun Kapoor, Sanjay Dutt, and Kriti Sanon. Well, the trailer is damn good and keeps us hooked for those 3 minutes 14 seconds. There are many elements in the trailer that impresses us a lot.
Arjun Kapoor took to Twitter to share the trailer. He tweeted, “Presenting the #PanipatTrailer – The Battle That Changed History. Releasing Dec 6. http://bit.ly/Panipat_OfficialTrailer @duttsanjay @kritisanon @AshGowariker #SunitaGowariker @RohitShelatkar @Shibasishsarkar @agppl @visionworldfilm @RelianceEnt @ZeeMusicCompany.”

Sanjay Dutt is awesome as Ahmad Shah Abdali. His menacing act is the highlight of the trailer. Arjun Kapoor also impresses us and thankfully his act looks different from Ranveer Singh’s Bajiro. Kriti Sanon looks pretty, but the trailer doesn’t give her much scope. What we like about the film is that Gowariker has not forcefully made his actors speak in the Marathi or the Urdu accent. They are speaking with a normal Hindi accent and that is looking good. The movie also stars many other talented actors like Mohnish Bahl, Padmini Kolhapure and Zeenat Aman. We are sure these veterans will leave a mark with their performances.
Panipat has been mounted on a huge scale and the production value is clearly visible. Also, the background score by Ajay-Atul is so good that it will give you goosebumps.
Sanjay Dutt and Arjun Kapoor both require a hit and looks like Panipat will be that film. The movie is slated to hit the screens on 6th December 2019.
