Story in Nut shell
Rani Padmavati is the wife of Maharawal Ratan Singh, who is known for her beauty and bravery in 13th century India. Alauddin Khilji, who is barbaric Sultan of Delhi, becomes obsessed with her beauty and he goes to extreme extent to fulfill his greed.
This story is based on a true story of Rani Padmavati. However, people are opposing the release of this movie as it is believed that Sanjay Leela Bhansali, who is the director, has added his own flair and interpretation to the true story by giving it a fairy-tale finish.
Master Piece Performance
Shahid Kapoor did a fantabulous job by presenting himself as a steadfast and unflappable Maharawal Ratan Singh, who is the ruler of Mewar, packed with Rajput pride. Getting deep into the character, he played a role that warrants him winning the confidence and loyalty of the Mewar kingdom and more importantly, Rani Padmavati’s heart.
Deepika played a role of the Rajput Queen who is packed with beauty, brains and bravery. In the story, Alauddin Khilji becomes obsessed with her. You could see the real character of Padmavati’s allure post-interval, as she gets to showcase her acting range.
On the other side of the movie, Ranveer Singh as Alauddin Khilji is seen as a crazy, barbaric Sultan, who is inspired with a voracious libido for power and flesh. One of the epic scenes of the movie is when Ranveer unleashes an animal magnetism on screen with a scarred face. His attire and makeup with kohl-lined eyes and a greased torso is putting life in the character. Some of the most enthralling scenes of the movie are between him and Shahid, as both flex their acting muscles at opposite ends of the moral spectrum.
There are some jaw-dropping scenes that are beautifully captured by Sanjay Leela Bhansali and they are praised by cinematographer Sudeep Chatterjee. Songs of the movie are visual delight. Overall, it would be not wrong to say that the ‘Padmaavat’ is an entertaining, large canvas experience along with stroke of visual brilliance.
