Sanyogita (Manushi Chhillar), the daughter of Jayachandra (Ashutosh Rana), the ruler of Kannauj, and Prithviraj (Akshay Kumar), the ruler of Ajmer, have never met but have heard of one other’s beauty and bravery.

They do regularly send letters, though it’s not clear how, and they fall in love. Brother of Muhammed Ghori (Manav Vij), monarch of the Ghurid dynasty in modern-day Afghanistan, is granted sanctuary by Pritiviraj.

Then, in response, Hori invades India but is overpowered by Prithviraj. Prithviraj essentially becomes the ruler of a huge portion of India when the monarch of Delhi, a distant relative, abdicates in favour of him. Jayachandra opposes this and plans to exact retribution.

Later, Sangyogita flees with Prithviraj, intensifying the animosity. Once more encroaching, Ghori succeeds via deceit. Captured and taken to Ghajini is Prithviraj. He still has one more arrow in his quiver, though. 

Samrat Pritihviraj review

Samrat Prithiviraj is based on Chand Bardai’s epic poem Prithviraj Raso. In order to provide us with a visual extravaganza of bravery, combat, and honour, it juxtaposes reality with fiction.

It states in the conclusion that Prithviraj’s passing put an end to the rule of Hindu rulers and ushered India into 755 years of foreign occupation. In another instance, it makes a point about Mahmud of Ghazni destroying the Somnath Temple.

These are political declarations appropriate for the tumultuous times we live in.

The movie also argues for women’s equality, maybe to provide some balance. Sanyogita doubts the sanctity of swayamwar since it is obvious that women have no rights and are pressured by their families to make decisions that are in their best interests.

Prithviraj is later shown granting Sanyogita an equal position as the ruler, arguing in favour of having women in positions of leadership. The movie is a tribute to the honour and bravery of Rajputs in general and Prithviraj in particular. His heroism is displayed in all its splendour.

He is demonstrated to be on par with Arjun on the battlefield, to be just like Ram when administering justice, and, toward the conclusion of the movie, to be crucified like Christ.He lives and dies by the principles of honesty, integrity, and dedication.

Fortunately for filmmaker Chandraprakash Dwivedi, Akshay Kumar is a perfect fit for the part. He not only has the physical presence of a rajput warrior king, but also exudes commitment for the venerable doctrine of rajdharma in his eyes and body language.

When one looks at him, one can almost believe that there once were men who were prepared to give their lives in the service of their country and believed in the sincerity of their religious beliefs.

His acts are always cool, composed, and understated. You have the impression that you are witnessing someone who has put in a lot of practise, even on the battlefield. In his moments with Manushi Chhillar, the age difference is not apparent.

The movie is another another arrow in Akshay’s already.Even the former Miss World made an assured entrance. Manushi resembles a rajput princess in every way.

She has picture-perfect looks and acting skills. She is not just present to increase the oomph factor; she also has the opportunity to advocate for the emancipation of women.

The newbie is off to a wonderful start, and the future holds great things for her. Sonu Sood portrays a court poet who is also a warrior in a role that is almost as significant as Akshay’s.

He plays the role of the brave king’s buddy, philosopher, and adviser, and he looks terrific doing it. Kaka Kanha, played by Sanjay Dutt, is Prithviraj’s uncle.

Sanjay fits in in with historical epics thanks to his outlandish personality. He demonstrates here that becoming older hasn’t blunted his aggressiveness and would have played the major role if the movie had been filmed 20 years earlier.

Manav Vij oddly plays the character of Mohammed Ghori understatedly and, mercifully, doesn’t receive any jingoistic words.


When it comes to the grandiosity of the film’s visuals, producer Yash Raj has spared no expense. The different palaces and havelis feel authentic, as does the Colosseum-like setting where the movie opens and closes. Even the battle scenes appear majestic.

Everything, from the production design to the costumes to the cinematography and editing, enhances the movie. It is just the ideal length at around 140 minutes and keeps you glued to the screen.


For the film’s blend of myth and history, watch it. It tries to wistfully bring back a period when everything was good and honourable while simultaneously demonstrating how it was our own division that allowed the invaders to take over. maybe a lesson to be learned…
