Actor Ranveer Singh has wished the best of luck to his ‘baba’, actor Arjun Kapoor, ahead of the release of Panipat. The historical drama is set in a similar milieu to that of Ranveer’s Bajirao Mastani.
Ranveer took to Instagram to post his message for Arjun, even as mixed first reactions to the film arrived online. He wrote alongside a picture of the two of them hugging it out, “Bajirao and Sadashivrao. Go forth and Conquer.” Ranveer added the hashtag, “Baba Power” to his post.
Initial reactions to the film, directed by Ashutosh Gowariker, have been mixed after early screenings. One viewer wrote on Twitter that they were ‘disappointed’ by the movie. The also added that Arjun’s performance fell off the mark, and that the screenplay was slow. “The negative climax is too damn predictable,” wrote another.
On the other hand, one viewer praised the action and wrote that Panipat is an ‘Enthralling film that salutes the bravery of the Marathas.’ Another viewer commented, “The war sequence n the extended climax stand out which reestablish Ashutosh as a master filmmaker.”
Actor Siddhant Kapoor wrote on Twitter, “Beautifully emoted , directed , amazing background scores , costumes , crisp edit and the camera works surreal. @arjunk26 top class. @kritisanon it’s by far your best performance @duttsanjay always my favourite.”
Avinash Gowariker wrote, “A fantastic story so MAGNIFICENTLY shown by @AshGowariker ! @arjunk26 holds it together with his best yet! @kritisanon bowls you over completely with her charm! @duttsanjay‘s sheer presence leaves you blown away! GREAT production scale #SunitaGowariker!”
Arjun’s uncle Anil Kapoor wrote, ‘’Watched the battle of #Panipat recreated on screen in all its glory! Completely captivated! Chachu you’ve done full justice to the role @arjunk26 !! Hard work shows in every frame. Congratulations to the team @duttsanjay @kritisanon.” Riteish Deshmukh tweeted, ‘’Wishing super success to the entire team of #Panipat - @duttsanjay @kritisanon @arjunk26 & @AshGowariker hearing wonderful things about this epic. Conquer the Box Office . Har har Mahadev’’.
Goldie Behl wrote, “In this time of “instant everything” @AshGowariker, you have managed to pull off a well-crafted, painstakingly authentic film #Panipat, about an era we as Indians know so little about. @arjunk26 & @kritisanon are real revelations.”

One Word- Average.
Why- Momentum is the biggest strength of any War film and #Panipat lacks it.
Last 40 mins take you on a ride of Biggest On Screen Spectacle of the year but the Negative Climax is damn too predictable. Ashutosh could have made it better.

Ashutosh Gowariker gets it right... Enthralling film that salutes the bravery of #Marathas... Patchy first half... Brilliant second half... Battle portions terrific... Sanju fiery, Arjun effective, Kriti excels. #PanipatReview pic.twitter.com/W34Chs9FYw
#PanipatReview : A strong comeback of Ashutosh Gowariker & his Biggest On screen grandeur. Arjun, Kriti, Sanjay these 3 are awesome in thier characters. Don't miss Epic battle of Maratha Empire's Glory.— Cinespeaks (@cinespeaks1) December 5, 2019

Far better than what we expected after trailer. @duttsanjay Great Acting, @arjunk26 better and @kritisanon is winner with her expression. Good acting and Story.
Deserved to be hit.
Time for obligatory #Unseenmoviereview of #Panipat— Anand Balasubramanian (@absaysthis) December 5, 2019
Sanjay Dutt rocks as the bad guy. Kriti & Arjun performs their role effectively. Feels a bit dragged and the action sequences seems familiar but does not fail to awe you or give you goosebumps.
#PanipatReview@AshGowariker paints a beautiful era of Maratha with aplomb, the war sequence n the extended climax stand out which reestablish Ashutosh as a master filmmaker@duttsanjay is FIERCE, while @arjunk26 n @kritisanon are good— Shubham C (@Shubham26383793) December 5, 2019
Length is a drawback
Panipat is based on the Third Battle of Panipat, which was fought between the Marathas and Afghan invader Ahmed Shah Abdali in 1761. The film also features Sanjay Dutt and Kriti Sanon in lead roles. It is slated for release on December 6.
