Samrat Prithviraj Movie Review, Akshay Kumar, Sanjay Datt, Sonu Sood, A Bad Historical War Drama


A day before the release of Samrat Prithviraj, Akshay Kumar asked his fans to watch this "historic film" but did not give any spoilers. He insisted that the film is based on several unknown aspects of King Prithviraj Chauhan's life and revealing spoilers would deprive others of this "cinematic experience". After watching Dr Chandraprakash Dwivedi's colossal snoozefest with Samrat Prithviraj, Akshay Kumar and Yash Raj Film's first attempt at a historical drama, we ask - what cinematic experience?

Akshay Kumar 

  Akshay Kumar's Samrat Prithviraj is based on Chand Bardai's Prithviraj Raso, a 13th-century epic poem that gained immense popularity in the 19th century. Points for choosing something that will blow with today's winds. The way it blew up was perhaps not intended, and it's what left us disappointed when we left the theater.

War & Bravery 

 This is a film about war and bravery, both of which call for less sloganeering and more fighting. Unless you're lulled to sleep by the dialogue-baazi and manage to stay awake to watch the meager fight scenes, you'll be put off by the awful CGI waiting to greet you there. To think this is a YRF production! 

Sonu Sood 

Samrat Prithviraj has Sonu Sood playing the supposed bard. Surprisingly, despite his emergence as a mass messiah off-screen, Bollywood still brings Sonu to sing the songs of Akshay Kumar, the true heroic hero on-screen. It's not a solo act, though. Sanjay Dutt, blindfolded as the warrior kaka, has nothing to do with the Mahabhrarata's Dhritarashtra, though he is a father figure whose Akhand practice of beheading anyone who grows a mustache in front of the king joins in here and there. As Sonu transforms into Akshay's Bran Stark, he warns the environment not to mess with vidhi ka vidhaan as a forerunner and soothsayer. Sanjay resorts to the methods of Munnabhai, who looks like a sore thumb. Until the break, if you can borrow Dutt's curtain. 

Weakest Princes 

Manushi Chillar's Sanyogita is the weakest princess we've seen in a historical drama. Like the overall look and feel of the film, Manushi looks like a faded photograph. There's a lot of talk about women empowerment through Sanyogita and slyness in 'Dilli ki gaddi mein pehli aurat', but...sorry, we missed the dose. Now on to Akshay Kumar. 

Akshay's Prithviraj is less Chauhan and more Kapoor, and his "Qutubuddin Aibak" crooning voice is a perfect match for the first member of the Kapoor clan in Bollywood, shouting "Saleeeeeem" in Mughal-E-Azam (1960). )! Totems that scream power - figuratively and literally - have not changed in the world of cinema. Here it rests on Akshay Kumar's broad yet stooped shoulders. But no amount of bluster will save this saga... You fill in the blank.
