Soumya Srivastava | Hindustan Times: - | 4/10
Akshay Kumar plays a brave, righteous, benevolent and feminist king in one of his most lacklustre and inorganic roles ever. No one seems human in Akshay Kumar's part-panegyric, part-misguided feminist epic ... Full Review

Rachana Dubey | Times of India: 3.5/5 | 7/10
Samrat Prithviraj is a well-performed and well-directed family drama. It doesn’t have the opulence that we have seen in other historial dramas, but there is enough to keep you invested and also take you back into the pages of our glorious history ... Full Review

Rahul Desai | Film Companion: - | 2/10
Yet Another Mediocre Good-Hindu-Bad-Muslim Historical. The film uses social agency to disguise the flames of religious communalism – and then fan them ... Full Review

Komal Nahta | Film Information: - | 5/10
An average entertainer. Dr. Chandraprakash Dwivedi’s direction is fair. But his narrative pace is a bit slow. Also, it appears that he has sometimes given so much importance to form (visual appeal) that the content takes a backseat ... Full Review

Shubra Gupta | The Indian Express: 2/5 | 4/10
Akshay Kumar’s period piece is loud, lurid and colourful. As befits its simplistic, shorn-of-nuance tone, this Akshay Kumar-Manushi Chhillar film lurches between dialogue-baazi and blandness, and stays completely faithful to its stated intent ... Full Review

Saibal Chatterjee | NDTV: 2/5 | 4/10
Akshay Kumar's Film Is Colourful But Spectacularly Soulless. A historical drama of this magnitude needed more than just a big budget. It required a sharper eye, a larger vision and a greater degree of integrity, none of which is within its grasp ... Full Review

Bollywood Hungama: 3.5/5 | 7/10
SAMRAT PRITHVIRAJ is an inspiring and entertaining saga of one of the greatest kings of Indian history ... Full Review

Taran Adarsh: 3.5/5 | 7/10
ENTHRALLING. Captivating film that has scale, conflict, drama, romance, battle sequences and SOUL… Director Dr #ChandraprakashDwivedi narrates an epic tale with flourish… DON’T UNDERESTIMATE THIS FILM ... Full Review

Umesh Punwani | Koimoi: 2.5/5 | 5/10
This Is The Best Akshay Kumar Can Do, Not The Best This Character Deserves! The treatment of the film is just like that History professor explaining Prithviraj's story in a hurry because he wants to finish this chapter in a single class ... Full Review

FirstPost: 1/5 | 2/10
Akshay Kumar’s film puts all its might behind a Hindu rashtra. Samrat Prithviraj unfolds like a straightforward sequence of Wikipedia entries: early childhood, first battle, marriage, second battle, death, legacy ... Full Review

India Today: 2.5/5 | 5/10
After watching the colossal snoozefest that is Dr Chandraprakash Dwivedi's Samrat Prithviraj, Akshay Kumar and Yash Raj Film's first-ever attempt at a historical drama, we ask — what cinematic experience? ... Full Review

Anuj Kumar | The Hindu: - | 3/10
Disappointing Akshay Kumar stars in dreary period piece. Director Chandraprakash Dwivedi’s film seeks to revive cultural nationalism, but doesn’t serve the purpose of those who wish to reap the past for a political harvest ... Full Review

Rediff: 3/5 | 6/10
At 135 minutes, the running time is just enough not to bloat the narrative or to let boredom set in ... Full Review

Uday Bhatia | Live Mint: - | 3/10
A dull and small-minded historical ... Full Review

Nandini Ramnath | Scroll: - | 3/10
A dull history lesson. But lacking Bhansali’s felicity with spectacle and movement and unable to add anything new or interesting to what is already broadly know about Prithviraj Chauhan, the film tries its best to be stately and impressive, just like its miscast hero ... Full Review

Devesh Sharma | Filmfare: 3.5/5 | 7/10
Watch the film for its combination of myth and history. It’s fondly trying to recreate a time when everything was just and honourable, while also showing that it's our own disunity which allowed the invaders to step in. A lesson to be learnt, perhaps ... Full Review

Filmi Beat: 2.5/5 | 5/10
While Akshay Kumar's warrior king does arrive in a grand way, he simply fails to transport you to a world that has a lot of blood rushing through its veins. Despite all the opulence, his historical film leaves you feeling underwhelmed ... Full Review

OTT Play: 2.5/5 | 5/10
Samrat Prithviraj has all of the characteristics that make it worthwhile to watch, and sure, the trailer does not do the film credit. Despite being the star, we can't overlook the fact that Akshay Kumar is the weakest ... Full Review

Pankaj Shukla | Amar Ujala: 2/5 | 4/10
पृथ्वीराज की गौरव गाथा का कमजोर अध्याय, अक्षय कुमार की साख को एक और करारा झटका ... Full Review

ABP Live: 4/5 | 8/10
ये फिल्म सम्राट पृथ्वीराज की कहानी को बड़े अच्छे से दिखाती हैं. उनके शौर्य को उनके पराक्रम को काफी दमदार तरीके से दिखाती है. कैसे सम्राट धर्म के लिए जिए. कैसे अपने लोगों के लिए उन्होंने अपनी जान तक की परवाह नहीं की ... Full Review

Live Hindustan: - | 4/10
फिल्म की कहानी पड़ी कमजोर, अक्षय कुमार-मानुषी छिल्लर की मेहनत नहीं कर पाई कमाल ... Full Review

Glamsham: 4/5 | 8/10
All in all, Dr. Chandraprakash Dwivedi’s ‘Samrat Prithviraj’, with great cast and impactful writing is a celebration of valour and a must watch ... Full Review

The Week: 1/5 | 2/10
A disappointment on all counts. Samrat Prithviraj might test your patience and endurance levels ... Full Review

WIONews: - | 4/10
A tedious ode to an epic character. There are a number of engaging sequences in ‘Samrat Prithviraj’ but the lack of a narrative does not allow the audience to completely immerse into the story ... Full Review

PinkVilla: 2.5/5 | 5/10
Overall, Samrat Prithviraj is strictly an average affair, with a rather flat screenplay. The historical is primarily watchable due to three strong sequences – The opening act, the intermission block, and the finale ... Full Review

Desi Martini: 3/5 | 6/10
Akshay Kumar starrer is a befitting ode to the valor of Samrat Prithviraj Chauhan despite the flaws ... Full Review

Poulomi Das | News9 Live: 1/5 | 2/10
It's the cowardly historical outing that's fast becoming the norm in Hindi cinema — ones which employ history as an excuse to further dangerous, intolerant propaganda that aims to recast India as a Hindu state ... Full Review

National Herald India: - | 4/10
All other quibbles aside, Samrat Prithviraj is most interesting but concurrently unconvincing in its contrived feminist reinterpretation of the times, particularly in the light of the practice of sati ... Full Review

Free Press Journal: 2.5/5 | 5/10
Akshay Kumar-starrer lacks the thrill and scale of a historical film. 'Samrat Prithviraj' fails to depict the glory and valour of the celebrated Hindu warrior Prithviraj Chauhan ... Full Review

Newsbytes App: 3/5 | 6/10
Despite flaws, must-watch for period drama buffs. Kumar adds royalty to character, Chhillar gives memorable performance ... Full Review
