Review: This is a Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s film and the film comes out to be as magnificent as is supposed to be being a SLB’s creation. The movie is a visual spectacle. Even when you know the end of the story it keeps you engage and keep you spellbound with the effects. The cinematography of Sudeep Chatterji is magnificent and grand, flattery image which you can feel in the visual of battle scenes.

Deepika Padukone, as Rani Padmavati undoubtedly is an epitome of beauty and grace deep inherent in her. She doesn’t have much of dialogues in the entire film yet her lively and expressive eyes do all the chattering and emotions come and go whenever she feels it. Shahid has a much-controlled personality here and he fits perfectly in the dignified character of Rana Ranat Singh who is quite brave and a muscled man. However, Ranveer Singh’s character here sweeps all the appreciation for his wonderful acting and completely and madly in an obsession for the queen. His desperation is evident in the character. He could be seen deep in the menacing, brutal Mughal King with a desperate obsession for the queen. This could be rated as a 4-star movie on the scale of 5star.

Why to Watch:Padmavat has all reasons to watch; the magnificence of being a Bhansali film to Cinematography, the setup, the characters, Deepika and Ranvir’s onscreen chemistry in the dream sequences. You will surely going to enjoy the film will all attributes.
