Everything is fair in Love, War & Bollywood!!! “Padmaavat”

Padmaavat Cast: Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh, Shahid Kapoor, Jim Sarbh, Anupriya Goenka, Raza Murad
Padmaavat Director: Sanjay Leela Bhansali
Padmaavat Rating: 3.8/5

Padmaavat movie is going 100% full for all shows past week. Today despite my bad shoulder sprain I decided to reach the theatre an hour before & thankfully I managed a ticket in fully packed theatre. Glad I did…So here it goes.

It is a well-edged drama movie that is beautifully framed; color and costume coordinated along with the extreme elegant dialogues.

Shahid played the role of Maharawal Ratan Singh and leaves the audience with hardly an impact …or even unnoticed. On the other hand, Padukone before the interval is reduced to a singing-dancing queen decked in kilos of gold. 

I was always fascinated with Mughal Rulers, their wealth, power & lifestyle. Ranveer Singh played Alauddin Khilji & nailed it. It was said that there was no unavailable thing in the world that is unavailable to Khilji. If he sets his eyes on a woman or a kingdom, they end up in his bed or at his feet. 

He justified his character well & for him it’s the role of a lifetime. This is one of the best performances I have in the last few years.

Every frame backs Bhansali's claim that Padmaavat is his tribute to the valour and pride of the Rajputs but I give my full marks to Khilji…He was strong, merciless, powerful & evil.

Ranveer ensured that his character Khijli is both repels and attracts.The climax of the film is a deeply regressive custom Jauhar, from the era that was dealt carefully

Despite a few loopholes in the story, we should give some extra grace for the performances. The movie is surely winning hearts of the audiences and the critics with its strong storyline and power-packed performances.

Padmaavat is a visual delight it’s a typical Bhansali movie that has well balance Bollywood elements & in the end you will definitely take Khilji home with you.
