A Grand Visual in 3D; Padmaavat
by G Swaminathan Bookmark and Share

Sanjay Leela Bhansali has created a niche for himself with his last three successful movies. Devdas, Rasaleela and Bajirao Mastani. True, they are larger than life characters and stories and movies which looked elegant, aesthetic, artistic, interesting and above all with perfect performers. His latest ‘Padmaavat’ another lore on a fictional character Padmavati acting as a link between Mewar king Ratan Singh and Muslim ruler Allaudin Khilji.

An epic poem written by a sufi poet Malik Mohammed Jayasi (1540), Padmavati is an imaginary queen of Raja Ratan Sing with an exceptional beauty. Allaudin Khilji, an emperor of all vices hears about her and tries to own her at any cost. His relentless wily efforts not just lead to wars and deaths of several soldiers, but also a mass self immolation termed Jauhar led by Rani Padmavati, to retain the prestige of Rajput women.

Honestly speaking, such tales could be possible only in the Indian milieu and so also the vociferous and violent demonstrations and destruction in the garb of safeguarding the self esteem of one particular community. To put it in a simple way; shameful! It shows how India (mis)uses freedom of expression!

Well, Padmaavat is another visual treat in 3D from Sanjay Leela Bhansali more like his earlier outing Bajirao Mastani. Every frame has a touch of beauty and grandeur. The actors Shahid Kapoor, Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh play their role perfectly. Dialogues have always been a great asset in such movies. Bhansali does not disappoint. In a way, if someone who cannot follow the dialogues could not enjoy the movie much.

If you are a fan of Bhansali movies go watch ‘Padmaavat’ for the sheer beauty of it. On the flip side the length of the movie is in fact tiring.
