Like any other Sanjay Leela Bhansali film, Padmaavat is also made on a massive canvas, with captivating cinematography. The story is about Alauddin Khilji (Ranveer Singh) trying to win Rani Padmavati (Deepika Padukone) anyhow; and she is already married and is madly in love with Raja Rawal Ratan (Shahid Kapoor).
SLB’s great portrayal of this story is worth a watch. The music and the background score by the man himself is ah-mazing. Ranveer Singh stole the show with his absolute best performance as a monstrous villain. Deepika did pure justice to Rani’s role by playing the beautiful queen wonderfully. Shahid Kapoor is a bit flat and expressionless in the whole film.
We expected more from the dialogues and strong one-liners, but it went in vain. Nonetheless, this movie is still worth a watch for superb performances and cinematic brilliance. We give this period-drama 3.5 buzzing bees and an extra jar of heart to Ranveer Singh!
