It goes to the credit of the director that he started his narrative with the landmark Sandhan Valley encounter where Tanhaji takes on the Mughals head on so beautifully and brilliantly executed. The viewers will get hooked right from the word go.
Endowed with a body of steel, the courage of a lion and an agile mind, Tanhaji was also one of Chattrapati Shivaji’s closest aides and trusted lieutenants. Ready to lay down his life for his King and country, this Braveheart planned a Surgical Strike to recapture Kondhana from the clutches of the Mughals spearheaded by Uday Bhan Rathod played by Saif Ali Khan who seems to be enjoying every bit of his character. His eccentricities, unpredictability, Craziness , madness are all manifested in his demeanour.
The film covers the journey of Tanhaji Malusare a Maratha Warrior who fought bravely for his motherland. Tanhaji went to war armed only with a handful of Marathas.

It focuses on various facets of Tanhaji ‘s life an exciting personality in the Maratha History. Trusted warrior of Chattrapati Shivaji Maharaj and his heroic act of winning the Fort of Kondhana against all odds.
Tanhaji ‘s wife Savitribai who is strong and amazing is played by Kajol who adapts to the character dressed in traditional Nauvari Sari looking every bit a Maratha Queen. Having a Marathi background in her great grandmother Ratnabai Shilotri and grand mother Shobhana Samarth she pulls of her role of Savitribai who was not only strong but had the ability to maintain her dignity in the face of adversity which she has delivered with aplomb
Ajay Devgn as Tanhaji Malusare fits the bill every inch of it by displaying one of his bravest and most astute portrayal of an Historical Hero a warrior who fought several battles alongside Shivaji Maharaj in the 17th Century. His chemistry with Kajol is indeed very soothing and pleasing to the eyes in their character of Tanhaji and Savitribai.
Sharad Kelkar as Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj looks impressive as the Maratha Lord and acts the same with maximum impact. Especially the scenes where he shares his strong relations with his mother Rajmata Jijabai and his interactions with Tanhaji are very touching and beautifully picturised.
Devdatta Nage as Suryaji Malusare and Shashank Shende as Shelar Mama do their best and lend credence to the narrative.

Ajay, who plays Tanhaji in the movie, and Saif Ali Khan as Udaybhan Rathod have pulled off the difficult battle scene interspersed with elaborate stunts in the movie.
