It is a known fact that Rajputs and Hindu Rulers never used to attack or fight after sunset, they also never used to attack without letting the enemy know before starting attack. What is shown in the movie is completely wrong where King Ratan Singh is shown attacking the Enemy Alauddin Khilji while 1.Alauddin Khilji is sleeping 2.after sunset with burning arrows and burning enemy tents.

I have not seen film in theater, i watched it on Mobile so i'm not writing much detailed review. This one is short review, see If that helps you. Fantastic Story (thanks to History), somewhere lose to decent Screenplay, Excellent BGM, Dull Music, Film is as Grand as Bahubali but lacks that visionary Direction. Overall a Very Good Film but nothing Outstanding there.
Acting and Impact wise Ranveer > Shahid > Deepika. All 3 have played Characters of Lifetime but not performance of lifetime. Ranveer looks Cruel, Lusty. Shahid is Brave and Dashing. Deepika looks Traditional Beauty.
For someone who already knows the story, Climax is not much Exciting. Film has many boring moments, unnecessary songs. Dialogues are top notch. But that MASS Entertainment is missing, neither CLASS is there. SLB has to get over of this Magnum Opus thing now. Recently he's more focused towards Big Sets, Lavishness but not concentrated on Content. Black being Non Grand film but it's his Best till date. He has lost that Class. Come on we Want Content rather than Big Sets. For someone who have seen and liked Magnum Opus like Class LOTR and Mass Bahubali2 this Padmaavat will look a tiny ordinary doll. That Director's Vision is missing, this Script with Rajamouli's vision and he would have made 500cr film.
Overall an Average film saved by Climax which lifted the Tempo in last 20 mins, ends up being a Very Good Film. This one deserves an Entry in 200cr Club. I'm going with 7/10* it's better than Bajirao Mastani but not a Classic. This film does not hurt Rajput Sentiments, instead it Glorifies Rajput Culture and tells their Bravery. Instead of doing useless Protest, take your kids to watch the film and let them know Glory of Rajput's Bravery and Pride.
