Adarsh adds the long runtime (which clocks in almost 3 hours) of the film may be the reason that the film did not perform well. The film was screened across 2,395 screens.

Th film has had an underwhelming response as compared to Kartik Aaryan, bhumi Pednekar and Ananya Panday's romantic comedy Pati Patni Aur Woh which made Rs 9.10 crore on its opening day.

Both Arjun and Ashutosh have been unable to create ripples at the box office with their films. Arjun's last films India's Most Wanted and Namaste England failed to create any impact in the market and were neither lauded by critics. Gowariker, on the other hand, had directed Mohanjo Daro in 2016, which had Hrithik Roshan in the lead. The film did not receive positive reviews either.

The Ashutosh Gowariker directorial, which portrays Kapoor as valiant Maratha soldier Sadashiv Rao Bhau, has multiple war sequences with Sanjay Dutt's character of Ahmed Shah Abdali.

The film portrays the Third Battle of Panipat, which was fought between the Maratha empire and the King of Afghanistan, Ahmad Shah Abdali. There were three battles of Panipat in total, which shaped the Mughal history and rule in the country.

While Arjun plays Bhau, Kriti Sanon is seen as his wife Parvati Bai.
