The impressively staged battle sequences in Dr Chandraprakash Dwivedi’s eagerly awaited historical Prithviraj as seen in the teaser released on October 15, may remind you of Ashutosh Gowariker’s Jodhaa-Akbar and Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Bajirao Mastani.
But hell, after a point all medieval battles , like all soured marriages ,look the same. Akshay Kumar seems steadily perched on that galloping horse as he sweeps his bride-to-be Sanyogita off her feet.
‘Sanyogita’ Manushi Chillar does look painfully young, and heartbreakingly pretty. But that’s okay. Back then a substantial age difference between a husband and wife was acceptable.
This is our tribute to his heroism and his life. The more I read about him, the more I was awed by how he lived and breathed every single second of his glorious life for his country and his values.”
The actor who has Sanjay Dutt and Sonu Sood for company in Prithviraj , adds, “Prithviraj is a legend, he is one of the bravest warriors and he is one of the most upright kings that our country has ever seen.
We hope that Indians worldwide love our salute to this mighty braveheart. We have tried to present his life story in the most authentic way possible and the film is a homage to his unmatched bravery and courage.”
