Story

Muhammad Ghori (Manav Vij) had captured Chitrarekha, the girlfriend of his brother Mir Hussain. Begging for his life, Mir Hussain came to Emperor Prithviraj Chauhan (Akshay Kumar). Emperor Prithviraj, who took the duty of protecting the refugee, sent a message to Muhammad Ghori that either Chitrarekha should be returned or there would be war. From here there was enmity between the two. Emperor Prithviraj defeated Muhammad Ghori in the Battle of Tarain in the year 1191 and captured it. But within a few days he was forgiven and sent back to Afghanistan. Meanwhile, the film gives us a peek into the personal life of Prithviraj Chauhan apart from the war, when he falls in love with Sanyogita, the princess of Kannauj. Angered by this marriage, King Jaichand of Kannauj joins hands with Muhammad Ghori keeping his hatred towards Prithviraj. This is followed by a war between Prithviraj and Ghori, where Prithviraj and Chand Bardai (Sonu Sood) are taken prisoner by deception and deception. The film revolves around how Prithviraj Chauhan shows his valor and valor for his motherland between the love story and the battlefield.

acting

Akshay Kumar in the character of Samrat Prithviraj looks good in some scenes, especially where the action is to be shown. But when it comes to gestures and dialogue delivery, the actors look very flat in this film. Manushi Chhillar looks confident. Her presence on screen is also good, but she will still have to do a lot of work to improve her acting. Sonu Sood shows maturity in the character of Kavi Chand Bardai. If seen, in terms of acting, he attracts attention in this film. While actors like Sanjay Dutt as Kaka, Manav Vij as Muhammad Ghori, Ashutosh Rana as Jaichand fall prey to half-baked scripts and leave no impact.

directing

To do justice to the greatness of Samrat Prithviraj Chauhan, the film needed a very strong script that celebrated his journey, valor and thinking, but the filmmaker-director made the film over-dramatic in a race to entertain. Instead of introducing the audience to the characters, the film moves from sequence to sequence at such a rapid pace that the characters hardly get a chance to connect emotionally. Neither Prithviraj- Sanyogita’s love saga leaves an impact, nor Prithviraj-Ghori’s enmity seems impressive. The film begins in a very interesting way. The way director Dr. Chandraprakash Dwivedi has combined the opening and climax of the film is exciting. But apart from the first half-and-a-half hour, the handwriting of the film is flat.

technical side

technical side

For films made on history, it becomes very important to be technically sound and ‘Samrat Prithviraj’ passes with good marks in this aspect. The production design of the film has been done by Subrata Chakraborty and Amit Ray, which is brilliant. The film looks gorgeous and accurate on screen. Manush Nandan’s cinematography does full justice to the grandeur of the film. But the editing of the film done by Aarish Sheikh is a bit weak. The whole film moves so fast that you don’t get a chance to understand or appreciate the part of the story, so the story doesn’t impress. The background score given by Ankit Balhara and Sanchit Balhara is average. The dialogues of the film are not molded in any particular tone, which sounds good in some parts, but at times does away with the authenticity.

music

music

The music of the film is given by Shankar- Ehsaan- Loy and lyrics are penned by Varun Grover. The music of the film is average. Except for the title track “Hari Har”, none of the songs influence it. Also the songs do not contribute other than increasing the length of the film. Neither love makes the story effective, nor does it give goosebumps during the war.

This tale of valor, valor and love of Prithviraj Chauhan, the last Hindu emperor of India, might have been very strong on the pages, but does not attract on the big screen. The effect that films made on history should have, the soul that should be in a film made on a great emperor.. that is missing here. Although the film is made on a very large scale, due to which it looks gorgeous on the big screen. 2.5 stars to ‘Samrat Prithviraj’ from Filmybeat.
