Padmaavat Is In A Serious Coup! Makers, Why So Silent?
Padmaavat

What’s Good: That nirvana moment of finally watching this film, Ranveer Singh dipping down in the sea of darkness and rising out as a shiny performer.

What’s Bad: I am restricted to a word limit & can’t include Ranveer in the headline – but wherever he is, please listen: Sir, you’re one of the best actors we’ve got.

Loo Break: In a movie of about 2 hours 40 minutes, you’ll not even crave for an interval forget about a loo break.

Watch or Not?: See, if it’s safe to watch in a theater near you. If it is, do that before it isn’t.

User Rating:

Set in an era where a certain race, Khilji is trying to overtake Delhi leaving their mark as champions. Alauddin Khilji (Ranveer Singh) – a crazy king goes into a war with full throttle against Rajputs for his one mad wish. The beautiful side of the story has an almost perfect love story of Rani Padmavati (Deepika Padukone) and Rawal Ratan Singh (Shahid Kapoor).

A perfect couple living a perfect life until a dark cloud named Alauddin Khilji starts hovering over their life. Revolving around the life of these three people, Padmaavat is the story of love, war and madness. The face-off between these two kings and how they stake everything over one mad wish.

Padmaavat Movie Review: Script Analysis

Written by Sanjay Leela Bhansali and Prakash Kapadia, this surely is Bhansali’s toughest work till date. From portraying the insanity of Ranveer Singh to keeping everything under a line as far as Rajput sensibilities are concerned. It’s so brilliantly written film, even the dark situations have an underlying touch of humour.

Retaining the Bhansali trademarked royalty, there shouldn’t be a need to say how jaw-dropping’ly beautiful this movie is. Building up the template of beauty vs dark in the first half, Bhansali shifts his focus on the war in the second. No complaints from the script but yes, the editing could surely have been tighter. Plus, there are some serious loopholes with Shahid’s character but Bhansali takes the liberty of calling him a Rajput.

Padmaavat Movie Review: Star Performance

Ranveer Singh as Alauddin Khilji is one of the best performances to come out of Bollywood. His wicked smile at the most uncertain times and the manners in which he presents himself are written so well. Ranveer lives the character so well, he’s set to bag in some major awards this year.

Deepika Padukone portraying the character on which the entire story is based forces you to want more of her. She has looked at her stunning best in this one and totally justifies the glory of Rani Padmavati. I felt she had a lesser screen presence, but whatever she had was exhilarating.

Shahid Kapoor has roared his presence but lacks an excellent writing for his character. At some point of times, it really feels unbelievable to believe what his character is doing.

Padmaavat Movie Review: Direction, Music

Bhansali! We love you. No matter what is the result of this film, please don’t stop attempting such subjects in future. I know this has not been a smooth experience but trust me the results will motivate you to not stop. This man has attempted something anyone would think nth times before even thinking about it.

Ghoomar looks more beautiful on big screen but a song that takes away the cake is Khalbali. Better than the likes of Tattad Tattad and Malhari, Ranveer takes the video of this song to another level. Background music infuses goosebumps and it’s there throughout the film. Though I wish “Rani Sa” score should have been used more.

Padmaavat Movie Review: The Last Word

Watch Padmaavat for its grandiose, beauty and Ranveer Singh! This is once in a lifetime kind of film which shouldn’t be missed in theaters. A personal note for Ranveer fans, you’re in for the best treat of your life.

Four stars!

    • Yes you are correct.
      I was amazed to see 4/5 rate. This film is humiliating for rajputs and even hardik Patel from Gujarat revolted against it. It is humiliating for Muslims too where alaudin has been potrayed as an evil.

      It is better to watch padman starring Akshay Kumar which is based on the biopic of a legendary man who invented low-cost sanitary napkins. No women-centric film has been rated more than 3 🌟 but it is insulting for us. Even tumhari sulu was rated 3.5 🌟
      Toilet was also rated with 3.5 🌟 it is insulting for good content films.

  1. in bad word you sayiing sir ……you are not critcs .taking favouritism and not a bad word for the movie so not give 5 why.mahimamanden of villan by you and director . he made pashwa aashiqu in his privous movie . taking historic figure and twist them to fools viewer.

  2. loll even the best review is not going to help break the record of tzh
    first break salmans tzh record and then show ur face 😂😂😂😂😂

  3. Movie is good but watching it in 3D with goggles was quite uncomfortable and caused a minor head ache also.

    Most of the movie is shot in earthen lamp lighting conditions and as it is the movie is dark. Watching it with
    tinted 3D glasses makes it look even darker .

    I suggest watching it in non 3D version.

  4. Movie is nice specially last 30 minutes making us proud as indian. But movie does not deserving 4/5. It deserves 3 or 3.5 just because of all star performence. Bahubali was too good than any kind of indian movie ever in history like mughlaeazam, sholay, ddlj ,n many other movies. Bahubali is best movie of indian cinema history . I think review of padmavat is just giving support for bhansali bcz of controversy.

  5. Wow so they gave DANGAL 3.5/5 and DUNKIRK 3.5/5 and Look “4/5” to a mindless movie “PADMAVAT”! What is wrong with you guys. I am yet to understand these wise people. Seriously are you Working for SANJAY BHANSALI. Every review you give have been absolutely hilarious. Disagree but don’t mock other citizens(Rajputs) who have different opinions.

  6. Sir, is there a way I can get my money back ? I have been cheated because of your review. I wasted rs. 2000 watching this movie with family. You are the one I consider responsible for my loss. Can you just let us know what is entertaining in this movie? If you answer I will give you same amount.

  7. This kind of movies should be banned in india. It has everything wrong.Such a bullshit movie.Money is NOT everthing against the indian feelings and emotions.I wonder why this movie is made first?

  8. I just fail to understand why time and again the Mughals who ruled india are shown as gray characters why is this ? why is no one showcasing the contributions they have made the identity they had given to this country the struggle against foreign invasions , the anti british stand , the freedom fights they had initiated i mean why is it that nothing positive is been shown about the moslems? Have people like Bhansali have stories and that to based on poems to glorify jouhar , the rajputs and all other communities except the moslems who had ruled india and gave india an identity they brought it reforms , they brought in development all that has been erased from memory and history and only thing that remains fresh in the minds of people of LSB is that we the muslems are tyrants its sad it really is painful we feeel so proud of our nation but the people who are supposed to unite the country are dividing them and polarising the communities very sad
