The first song from Arjun Kapoor's film Panipat is here and boy, is it a war cry! The period saga, which is based on the Third Battle of Panipat fought between Ahmad Shah Durrani's invading Afghani forces and Sadashivrao Bhau, is poised to highlight the valiant heroes of that war and Maratha pride. Even the trailer had us gasping over the fierce and righteous looks of the Maratha warriors, and the song titled, Mard Maratha, is a testimony of the same gallantry. Penned by one of the finest wordsmiths, Javed Akhtar, the song is composer duo Ajay-Atul's creation, and it shows. While Arjun look to have done justice to his characters, costar Kriti Sanon who is playing the part of Parvati Bai, shines in a dance sequence. Apart from Arjun Kapoor, the Ashutosh Gowarikar directorial also stars Sanjay Dutt as the antagonist and honestly, we can't wait to see the glory unfold.
BL Verdict: Ajay-Atul have also lent their voices for the composition which, with Javed Akhtar's words, is a winning bet already. That, toppled with honour and valour of the Maratha empire, is a treat to watch.
