Padmaavat Quick Movie Review: The film is gorgeous but tedious | PINKVILLA



Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmaavat has beautiful frames, brilliant acting by the lead actors but still it misses out on being perfect. The film has flaws and it falls short of being spectacular.

Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s magnum opus Padmaavat has been a much awaited film. The film will see the reunion of the hit team of Sanjay Leela Bhansali, Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone. Shahid Kapoor has been an addition to the team. Shahid is essaying the role of Maha Rawal Ratan Singh in the film. Deepika Padukone plays the central character, that of Queen Padmini, whereas Ranveer Singh plays the antagonist for the first time.

The film’s trailer gave us a glimpse of the grand sets and breathtakingly beautiful costumes. Shahid Kapoor is presented as a noble king who is deeply in love with Queen Padmini. The film’s trailer showed Ranveer Singh as a ruthless king, Alauddin Khilji. The story of love, sacrifice and triumph has been shot for over a year. But, does Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s vision translate as beautifully on screen? Read our Quick Review here:

What do you do when the film is every bit beautiful, every frame is one to behold but you can barely bear to sit through it? Ranveer Singh is the one who holds your heart, menacing and brutal but the rest of the film doesn’t match up his enigma or passion. Deepika Padukone is beautiful but her act doesn’t bloom enough pre interval. And what about Shahid Kapoor? He is the film’s weakest link, showing neither the desired chemistry with his partner nor a worthy opposition to Ranveer. The film takes an hour to set pace, picking up mood at a lethargic pace. But this is the kind of spectacle that depends heavily on its drama which kick starts only in second half.
