Here is presenting a quick take on the movie review of Bajirao Mastani starring Ranveer Singh, Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra. Bajirao Mastani is a film based on Peshwa Bajirao (Ranveer), Kashibai (Priyanka) and Mastani (Deepika).
It is a love story of warrior who never lost a battle in life, but was helpless when come to his own love and can't fight against his own family and social norms. Mastani falls in love instantly with Bajirao when later help her in a battle in Bundelkhand. Similary Bajirao also reciprocates his love for her. But Bajirao already being married to Kashibai and Mastani being a half-Muslim Bajirao family doesn't accept her at all. For rest of the story one has to go and watch the film in theaters.
Film is good at places, but is very slow at parts and hardly moves in few scenes. However film looks grand and visuals are delight for viewers. Sets are big and Sanjay Leela Bhansali is a master in that department. Every penny in the film is well spent. War scenes are also well shot. Film could have been easily trimmed by 20-25 minutes. Overall film is a good watch.
Ranveer Singh delivers is career best performance till date. He looks every part of Bajirao. His fan following will multiply after this film. Deepika looks an ethereal beauty in the film. Her performance in role of Mastani is outstanding and definitely one of her best till date. Priyanka is the surprise package who comes out all winner in the film. She has got equal length as Deepika and she is magical in the role of Kashibai. Awards are coming in for this lady. Tanvi Azmi delivers an honest performance.
Verdict - Bajirao Mastani is definitely one of the best to come out of Sanjay Leela Bhansali armoury. However film is clashing with Dilwale and hence will face some hardship in start. But with good word of mouth film should get a long run at box office. Film has every chance of crossing 100 crore nett at box office.
Ratings - 3.5/5. Recommended!
