It is not a matter of real history. The real story wasn’t even in ‘Mughal-e-Azam’ or the recent smash hit Telugu-Hindi movie ‘RRR’. Most viewers are unaware of the real story. It’s about whether the film manages to create the magic that is seen on the screen. This is where ‘Emperor Prithviraj’ fails. Akshay Kumar doesn’t look like a king in most places, he looks like a player.
The second important thing is that if someone is going to be heroic on screen, then the villain in front needs to be strong as well. But in the role of Muhammad Ghori, Manav Vij looks a bit chubby. So this movie Prithviraj has to try very hard to prove his bravery.
At the beginning of the film, Prithviraj is shown fighting a lion. These types of recipes to show someone who was bold as a child, is too old. It would have been better if director Dwivedi thought of some other new way. This story has been going on for centuries that Bharat, the son of Dushyant and Shakuntala, used to count the teeth of a lion in his childhood. The story has also spread that the filming was done with lions from Africa to give the real impression of the lion fight scene in the film.
Well apart from the bravery aspect, the love story of Prithviraj and Sanyogita is a bit impressive and the battle scenes are also impressive with the help of graphics. All this can be called a positive aspect of the film. Sanjay Dutt has been used to finding another strong shoulder to run the movie. Who is in the role of Kaka Kanha.
Although its role is small, so the shoulder has not been effective either. Ashutosh Rana had to be weak in the role of Jaichand. Manushi Chhillar is fine as Sanyogita. The songs from the film are not going to stick on the lips. Yes, Sonu Sood is in the role of Chandbardai.
