Intentions were good but outcome is Huge Dissapointing. I remember the 40-50 pgs of Amar Chitra Katha of Samrat Prithviraj that I read decades back in 80s was much much better and entertaining than this movie.Key Historical incidents are not shown. Read at the end of this review those 12-13 incidents of Samrat Prithviraj.They have altered some key incidents like Swaymwar and last dwell scene.. huge let downAkshay should have done some look test. He was not looking like a king. His last climax look he should have kept in whole movie.Director and bad Actor choices are to blame here. There is a huge responsibility while choosing to make a historic movie. If you can't commit, dont do it.Hats off to SLB. He really nailed it and have set the standards high.
A movie like this needed atleast 8-10 months shooting but the fact that Akshay Kumar completed this movie in 40 days tell you that he is just a money-hungry person, no wonder he is so eager to jump on other movies after finishing one.Also he is the worst casting ever, he looks like Bala from Houseful movies, not Prithviraj Chauhan. Throughout the whole movie, he had hilarious expressions on his face which I found really strange cause it wasn't supposed to be a comedy movie, yet it seemed like one. Disaster.
Instead of this buffoon Akshay Kumar if Vidyut Jamwal played the role of samrat prithviraj, then surely I'd have been given the ratings of 10 stars. This guy Akshay Kumar is absolutely commitmentless and won't even dedicate for the work he offered, and this movie proves his real mettle I E absolutely 0. There was no emotion/ Ruler like expression in his face, TBH Rowan Atkinson does have better facial expression than this Nalayak Akshay Kumar.
Another C grade movie from the most overrated actor in Bollywood. Unnecessary cliches with extreme masala is not even the main problem with this movie, it's the ridiculous acting by overAkshay actingKumar! It feels like a middle schooler performing his first role in a school play. His horrible dialogue delivery along with absence of any acting skills makes the movie feel like a torture to sit through. Don't waste your time and money!
It's been a while since I had been so frustrated and mindblown on how bad a film was, and to say I felt that level of disappointment with this "period biopic" is an understatement. Filled with awful writing, piss poor performances, and cartoonish action sequences, "Samrat Prithviraj" has nothing to offer. Neither does the film be accurate historically, nor does it make it a lot more entertaining. The background score is bland, Obnoxious and overpresent, and actively takes away from the enjoyment of the film. Yeah it's a period piece, where Prithviraj totally kills someone who actually was alive after even Prithvi' own death!
