Ajay Devgn, Amit Sharma, and A.R. Rahman are three heroes of Maidaan 

A source exclusively told Pinkvilla, "There are three heroes in the film. One is Ajay Devgn who has given the best act of his career. Second is the director Amit Sharma who has made a very compelling film despite a long runtime and the length does not feel and the third is musician A.R. Rahman whose background score lifts the impact."

The source further added, "The last 30 minutes which has football matches are thrilling and absolutely gripping. The film is a very authentic take on a golden era of Indian football and a lot of emotions and drama alongside the matches. The matches have been shot very well and it's among the most well-made sports films of India." 

Maidaan's runtime and UA certification details 

According to Bollywood Hungama, Ajay Devgn starrer Maidaan was given a U/A certificate by the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) with zero cuts recently. No scene or dialogue from the film was cut.

The disclaimer also mentioned that certain dialogues are used purely to dramatize the incident and the film is not made to incite any lawlessness.
