After Ashutosh Gowariker's historical film Panipat, director Om Raut Tanhaji has appeared alongside The Unsung Warrior. Tanhaji is another such historical film after Panipat, which has managed to portray the valor of the Maratha Empire successfully in a grand style. Historical films and that too especially on the subject of war, films sometimes become cumbersome, heavy and boring, but it has to be said that it is the director's quality that in this story taken from the important chapter of history, the story of courage, romance, thrill, betrayal Like there are all the elements and the 3D effects called gold icing on it which makes the entire film worth watching from beginning to end.

The story is of that page of history where Aurangzeb (Luke Kenny) is strategizing to sweep Mughalia Parcham all over India and the Deccan (South) Shivaji Maharaj (Sharad Kelkar) is determined to take the oath of self-rule. This war in history (4 February 1670) is recorded as the Battle of Sinhagad. In the 17th century, Shivaji Maharaj's Parammitra and courgeous warrior Subedar Tanhaji Malusare (Ajay Devgan) is busy with the wedding arrangements of their son with his wife Savitribai (Kajol). They are unaware that despite the handing over of 23 forts including the Kondana Fort to the Mughals in the Purandar Treaty, the Mughals Sultanate has not lost their thirst.

 At the time when Rajmata Jijabai gave away the fort of Kondana to the Mughals, at the same time, she had sworn not wear a paduka until the saffron was waved at this fort once again. Aurangzeb has made up his mind to destroy the Maratha Empire by ordering his special, confidant and barbaric pawn Udayabhanu Rathod (Saif Ali) to march towards the Kondana Fort with a massive army and a large cannon known as Nagin.

Shivaji Maharaj does not want to involve his brave and dear friend in the tragedy of war at this time, because he does not want the war to take place in Tanhaji's wedding house. But when Tanhaji learns that Swarajya and Shivaji Maharaj are in danger, he sets out to fight Udayabhanu by wearing saffron, irrespective of the son's marriage.

Udayabhanu is no less than Tanhaji in Courage and is also full of barbarism. He picks up the widow princess Kamaladevi (Neha Sharma) and is adamant on making her queen. Actually, Kamala was his first love, but after he rejected and was ashamed, he joined the Mughals. Tanhaji gets bravery as well as betrayal in the war with Udayabhanu Rathod. Can Tanhaji eliminate Udayabhanu? Is he able to follow the promise given to Shivaji Maharaj? You will have to watch the film to know it.
