When Mughal emperor Aurangzeb recruits his trusted guard Udaybhan to take control of the Kondhana Fort, Shivaji decides not to engage Tanhaji whose son is going to get married soon. However, as Tanhaji learns of Udaybhan's heading towards the fortress, he decides to take charge and stop the rival army from reaching their destination. This doesn't turn out to be easy as Udaybhan finds himself helped by people who don't want Tanhaji to succeed, resulting in battles and attacks that ensue as the plot unfolds.

Spectacular Visual Treat
13 January 2020 | by rpbagasiSee all my reviews

First of all, it was fabulous and felt goosebumps to see Shivaji for the first time in the history of World Cinema. Second the way Ajay acted was exemplary.. Perfect Expression and dialogue delivery. Kajol played her small but impactfull part beautifully. I liked other roles too.. But watching Shivaji in big screen is something can't be expressed with words. Brave n successful effort!!
