Compared to the Other movies of Sanjay leela bhansali,I would say this movie is far better.In the name of Romance,sometimes he makes movies which makes the audience sleepy like the one he made in saawariya.But in Padmavati,there is a right balance of Romance,Action ,art which is combines in a right way,so the movie is interesting and was not boring even a little bit.
Each and every role played by the actors & their performance was awesome.We see mostly ranveer singh all through the movie and the movies exclusively belongs to him.The utmost evilness is portrayed in him.Compared to th 1st half,in the second half is he is better performed .Shahid Kapoor has a subtle acting in the movie without much funfare.He is soft silent but yet he performed well with his presence.Like a batsman partenering Sachin ,he has allowed Ranveer to dominate all along the movie which is appreciatable for a senior than actor like him.But his character is about keeping the honour of rajputs and slowly we realise that it is a dignified role & a honourable role.his performance also has lot weightage all through the movie.The scene when Ratan singh is killed and how he falls to the ground is a superhb scene and I like how a Rajput keeps his honour is portrayed in this movie.
As the title role belongs to Deepika padukone,here performance is mostly associated with Shahid & indeed she is paid higher than the other 2 actors.Need to mention other actors like Rajguru,Aditi rao as they add strength to the movie.
The war scenes are made on a gigantic scale but since bahubali has set a standard ,this movie with visual effects is In no match to bahubali.The art,customs,ritual,sets,dress are shown in the movie with good taster and the usual style of Bhansali.Inspite of it is being mentioned as fictional portrayal,they are interesting for an art lover.
I am not sure why there is a requirement of 3D for this movie.I feel nowadayas it has become a fashion to have 3D in all movie inspite of it being unnecessary.
Why there was so much fuss,controversies and ban for this movie which I don’t understand as there was no controversial scenes surrounding the Rajputs as each scene is to portray the Rajputs in a good way.But these controversied have made this movie a hit among the audience.I think more controversy should surround movies like Jodhaa akbar where a Rajput marries a muslim ruler but in this they have shown Rajputs in a very good way.
Music is all made by Bhansalu,is smooth,soft & matches the movie mood.
Good work by Bhansali without his usual boring elaborate romance movies,hope he continues to make this kind of movies instead of going in his old ways.
