Movie Review: BAJIRAO MASTANI

Attributes: Movie Reviews

Director: Sanjay Leela Bhansali
Cast: Ranveer Singh, Deepika Padukone, and Priyanka Chopra

Based on the novel 'Raau' by Nagnath, Sanjay Leela Bhansali is back with yet another romantic movie, narrating the story of the Maratha warrior Peshwa Bajirao I (Ranveer Singh) and his second wife Mastani (Deepika Padukone), to form a spectacular piece of Art.
Albeit a few glitches, just about everything is restrained yet gorgeous, dramatic yet heartfelt, poetic yet real.

Though 'romance' is the key essence of BAJIRAO MASTANI, the film also showcases some wondrous battle sequences!

Talking about the performances of the case, Ranveer Singh hits the bull's eye as Peshwa Bajirao; So much so, that at the end of the film he seems one with the character! Be it his, mannerisms, or even the expressions - Simply stellar! Deepika Padukone, is equally at par playing fierce Mastani, somehow carving a special place in your heart. 

Though Priyanka doesn't have a major role, in comparison to the other two starlets, she indeed steals the show, playing her role with such ease and conviction, leaving you moist-eyed. While the Tanvi Azmi as the scheming mother-in-law, and Milind Soman as Bajirao's adviser are brilliant as well.

Of the few things that bugged me, one was the length of the movie for, they could have easily wrapped up in 2 hours, if not for some stretched, unwanted sequences; And secondly, the climax; While the majority of the film is sublime, the ending considerably lags in comparison.

I haven't seen Dilwale (not do I intend to) but, I strongly feel that BAJIRAO MASTANI gives a stiff competition for which I give it 3 Shors on 5!
Summing it up in a small gist - The movie has performances that breath in life to the characters, decked up in colourful costumes, over larger-than-life sets, and of course, brilliant cinematography plays a huge role; Making for a spectacular film to witness over the weekend. Cheers.
