First warning – There is no subtitle for Padmaavat’s release in Hindi (Crie crie crie now)! So please do watch the movie in the language that you understand, after all, we watch the movie for the story and what’s the use of not getting to know it properly but just getting the gist of it. Of course I understand it will be a little funny if a movie is not seen in the language its taken in.
Basically, I’m trying to say don’t be like me putting too much scene that ‘My second language was Hindi in school and college, of course, I’m going to understand it (Lel, little did I know about myself! :P).’ Also annoying that one Hindi knowing friend and not letting them also watch the movie properly 😛
So where will I start from? Because Sanjay Leela’s work is humongous to comment on! Not really understanding the script (Ayo, language prob macha) I really did pay attention to their acting, music, cinematography, costume designing (Hehehe, so feminine ikr).
There is no doubt that in every frame of the film, there was a lavish and poetic approach by Bhansali. Adding to it the cinematographer Sudeep Chatterjee made this little girl feel like she woke up to a fantasy world capturing some jaw-dropping scenery and adding Rajasthan to my bucket list now 😀
OMG, I loved the negative role played by Ranveer Singh. He literally lived the character so well. Shahid Kapoor’s noble and chivalric character was really attractive. Nevertheless, it’s difficult to explain Deepika Padukone’s grace in words. Couldn’t take off my eyes from her highness and her outfit. I’m sure all of us would have awed seeing the fearsome war takes places between the exemplary Maharawal Ratan Singh defending his kingdom and the honor of his queen and Sultan Alauddin Khalji. I’m already tripping on Ghoomar,Ghoomar, ghoomar re re re listening to it zillion times!
The jauhar scene in the climax was splendid, though I fell half asleep in the middle woke straight up to that breathtaking scene where the humming of BGM, Deepika’s stunning costume and startling cinematography etc,all make it worth the money to watch it at last.
In conclusion, Padmaavat is a breathtaking, appreciable effort, cliched Bhansali style movie. It was little dull and draggy for me personally. But definitely worth releasing opposing all the controversies.
P.S. This is just a review of a little girl in South India, not a pro movie critic. Oh, don’t forget to watch in theatre in the language you know machi! 😛
