Monika Rawal Kukreja | Hindustan Times
Film is intriguing but tedious. Ashutosh Gowariker makes his war drama larger-than-life but Arjun Kapoor film is let down by its length ... Full Review

Sreeparna Sengupta | Times of India: 3.5/5
Panipat delves into a significant chapter in history and is a war drama that lauds the unshakeable bravery, courage and the strong principles of the Marathas ... Full Review

Shubra Gupta | The Indian Express: 2/5
Ashutosh Gowariker has the right to creative license, and he has chosen the line which bends both fact and credulity. But did Panipat, which clocks in nearly three hours run time, need to be quite such a drudge? ... Full Review

Priyanka Sinha Jha | News18: 2.5/5
Panipat, a film about Maratha warrior Sadashiv Rao Bhau who staves off Afghan ruler Ahmad Shah Abdali, disappoints only because of a linear screenplay that fails to rouse dramatic emotions so important to historicals ... Full Review

Saibal Chatterjee | NDTV: 2.5/5
The burden on Arjun Kapoor is too heavy for him though he rises manfully to the challenge. Panipat is anything but engaging ... Full Review

Bollywood Hungama: 3/5
PANIPAT throws light on an important chapter of Indian history with the battle scenes as its USP ... Full Review

Umesh Punwani | Koimoi: 3/5
Suckers for historical dramas will find themselves lost in the fascinating world designed by Ashutosh ... Full Review

Namrata Joshi | The Hindu
Sticks to the tried-and-tested format, but falls short of its ambition ... Full Review

Uday Bhatia | Live Mint
The CGI lets Gowariker down, and there’s little sense of the ebb and flow that must have accompanied the real clash, one of the largest in 18th century India ... Full Review

Nonika Singh | The Tribune
If only Gowariker had added astute skills to his armoury we would not have been forced to say love’s labour lost ... Full Review

Sukanya Verma | Rediff: 2/5
Panipat has all the meat for a political drama meets war movie. But in Ashutosh Gowariker's failure to process its complexity, the material never rises beyond a mediocre hurray to the Maratha manoos ... Full Review

Anna MM Vetticad | FirstPost: 2/5
Ashutosh Gowariker tweaks history into a Maratha fan fantasy sans Bhansali's insidious intent ... Full Review

Nairita Mukherjee | India Today: 2.5/5
Ashutosh Gowariker may not be able to do grandeur like Sanjay Leela Bhansali, but he can do war. Yet, a lacklustre cinematography and terrible CGI mars this solid attempt. It would have worked 10 years ago ... Full Review

Mayank Shekhar | Mid-Day: 3/5
More than a period film, a costume drama, a Bollywood musical, a war memorial, a battle-field actioner, Panipat is essentially a lesson in history that might have occupied at best a page in your NCERT/school text ... Full Review

Devesh Sharma | Filmfare: 3.5/5
Watch the film for its opulence, it's well-choreographed fight scenes, as well as a colourful lesson in history. It might not be all accurate and yet gives you a sense of place and time ... Full Review

IANS | Sify: 3/5
Lacks magic. Panipat is a predictable retelling of the battle that leaves no room for imagination ... Full Review

Divyanshi Sharma | Zee News: 3/5
To sum up, the film is a great effort by Gowariker and deserves to be watched for some impeccable performances and adrenaline-pumping action. However, it does fall short in creating the magic of epic saga 'Jodha Akbar' ... Full Review

Vishal Verma | Glamsham: 4/5
Magnificently mounted, incredible tale of valor ... Full Review

Samira Sood | The Print
Panipat is a serviceable, predictable retelling of the battle, but it does not tell you anything new or try anything out of the box in its treatment ... Full Review

Ankur Pathak | The Huffington Post
While Dutt hams the hell out of his role, as if how intimidating he can be is directly proportional to how loudly he screeches, Kapoor is underwhelming ... Full Review

Pankaj Sabnani | Bollywood Life: 2.5/5
Ashutosh Gowariker’s period drama is watchable, but definitely lacks soul. Panipat is 173 minutes long. It's not that long films are a problem, but in the case of Panipat, it seems long and slow, especially in the first half ... Full Review

Sonal Gera | India TV: 3.5/5
Watch 'Panipat' for its large scale (courtesy CK Muraleedharan​); Ashutosh Gowariker's almost-comeback direction; Ajay-Atul's songs; the climactic war sequence; Kriti Sanon's sprightly, career-altering performance; and perhaps, for an unlikely parallel with the present day political scenario in Maharashtra ... Full Review

Vaibhavi V Risbood | PinkVilla: 3.5/5
It’s about valour, and honour one earns from the enemy even in times of a defeat ... Full Review

Apoorva Nijhara | Mens XP: 2.5/5
A Brave Attempt At Recreating History, But Falls Short Of Expectations ... Full Review

Tanul Thakur | The Wire
This distinct lack of effort, across departments, is the most unfortunate part about this movie. Panipat isn’t offensive; it’s just tedious and inert – and very incompetent ... Full Review

Nandini Ramnath | Scroll: 2.5/5
Gowariker finds the emotional connect in the scenes between Kapoor and Sanon, but there’s a been-there-seen-that feel to the battle scenes and the drama of the royal court ... Full Review
