Taran Adarsh: "#Panipat: GRIPPING. Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️½. Ashutosh Gowariker gets it right... Enthralling film that salutes the bravery of #Marathas... Patchy first half... Brilliant second half... Battle portions terrific... Sanju fiery, Arjun effective, Kriti excels."
Rajesh Mapuskar: "With the master with his next masterpiece. Overwhelming 'PANIPAT' 👏👏👏 @AshGowariker @rrmapuskar #Panipat."
Gautam: "Pretty impressed with #Panipat. Decent first half but second half is very good. @arjunk26 is a surprise. Delivers much more than expected and he was actually very good in war scenes. @kritisanon looks extremely beautiful and gives u goosebumps in a surprise scene towards the end. #SanjayDutt is terrific as savage Ahmad Shah Abdali. His face off scenes with #ArjunKapoor are excellent. Easily among the best high points of film."
