The Bajirao Mastani pair – Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh will leave you spell bounded throughout the film. The goddess that Deepika is on screen is beyond justified, with her aura, her presence and even the slightest way in which she walks, the audience wants more of her on screen!
There is not one wrong note in her performance.
The devil that Ranveer Singh is shows in every part of his body language, so much so that he sinks his teeth into the character of the devil that was Alauddin Khilji. The way he walks, talks, behaves one fails to remember him as the charming lover boy that Ranveer Singh is in most of his films.
Ranveer Singh made sure people walk out of the cinema halls remembering the monster Alauddin Khilji that history suggests.
Shahid Kapoor marks his debut in a SLB film.
Padmaavat is story of Rani Padmavati (Deepika Padukone), Chittor’s Maharawal Ratan Singh (Shahid Kapoor) and Sultan of Delhi Allauddin Khilji (Ranveer Singh). The makers in the very beginning of the movie have revealed that the film is based on an epic poem written in 1540 by Malik Muhammad Jayasi.
When it is established in the film that she is the most beautiful woman in the world, you are bound to believe it.
Shahid Kapoor has the demeanour of a brave Rajput king. Having said that, it was a Ranveer Singh show all the way.
You’ll dread him, fear him, hate him and believe in the menace that he is on screen but in all that you might find yourself feeling for his character unwillingly. Nobody. Believe us when we say Nobody could have pulled off the character like Ranveer Singh.
Applauding the choice of the man of the hour- Sanjay Leela Bhansali, his characters for the movie have been wisely picked and make his ever know grand sets grander than reality, he has won hearts!
Aditi Rao Hydari manages to hold her own character in the limited screen time.
You will find yourself humming the theme tune long after the movie ends. The action was just about fine. Drama even without the war scene was probably the most loved part of the film, thanks to the music and the thematic concern.
And finally coming to the man of the hour, the director and music composer of the film, Sanjay Leela Bhansali. To put in simple words, he is a genius.
Sanjay Leela Bhansali has proved time and again he is one of the best filmmakers around and he proves it yet again. There are various scenes in the movie that will leave you numb.
There’s a sense of tragedy, a sense of triumph, a climax never seen before. SLB will take you through various emotions throughout the runtime of the film and at the end you’ll find yourself spellbound. Padmaavat is a marvel of Indian cinema.
Watch the film for the cinematic brilliance of Sanjay Leela Bhansali, for the screen goddess that is Deepika Padukone, for the earnestness of Shahid Kapoor and for Ranveer Singh’s madness.
