Bajirao Mastani – Movie Review

4.0 Stars (4.0 / 5)

It is piece of an art portraying epic Indian History of an unbeatable warrior Baji Rao Ballal Balaji Bhat. This film is one of the dream project of director Sanjay Leela Bhansali and it was in development from last 15 years after he made his all-times hit Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam. After so much of changes in script, casting and lot of hardwork finally it is released now in the end of 2015.

This movie is filmed with extensive big sets in combination of high quality VFX graphics. You can expect vast scenes of wars and landscapes along with very beautiful palaces. A magic of artwork and colors is developed by the set built as Shanivaarbada the palace of Bajirao Peshwa (Prime Minister) of Chatrapati Sahu Maharaj.

Ranveer Singh is completely gelled up in the role by that bald look exactly as the genre of Marathas. His hard work is exemplary the way he followed the flawless Marathi accent along with body language and expressions.

Deepika Padukone is looking gorgeous as Mastani and an outstanding performance from her, the way she is fighting in the war, the way she performs all the dances, her dialogue delivery and soulful acting. Somewhere I found she overshadow Ranveer Singh in terms of performance. The song Deewani Mastani is filmed in such a grace that it will mesmerize you with beauty of presentation and obviously the beautiful Deepkia Padukone. Priyanka Chopra as first wife of Bajirao, Kashibhai did a fantastic job delivering beautifully the Marathi style and accent. Her look is beautiful and innocent in the movie as a simple Marathi wife living and ruling the palace of peshwa.

Music of the movie is done by Mr. Bhansali himself and it is excellent and outstanding with great songs like Deewani Mastani, Malhari, and Pinga featuring Priyanka Chopra & Deepika Padukon with a nostalgic touch of Dola Re in Devdas. The background score is also very beautifully composed.

Movie is rich with talented bunch of actors like Milind Soman, Tanvi Azmi, Mahesh Manjrekar, Vaibbhav Tatwawdi and many more. The lacking points I found in the movie is like it is little exhausting due to the length and little bit slow in between as somewhere the story becomes little slow. The kind of thrill and enthusiasm need to be followed on the war scenes are lacking as the director is more concentrated on the romance side, probably because of the theme that is of a historic romantic story. Well, all the lacking points are covered by the excellent cinematography and the beautiful sets. Trust me it is a treat to your eyes watching this movie on an HD screen.

It is a must watch to enjoy the fusion of art, music and acting with a heart touching story of a great warrior.

Dilwale – Movie Review

3.0 Stars (3.0 / 5)
One of the most awaited release of the year is a Movie for masses and hopefully will do better in the box office as it is a complete entertainer even after directed by Rohit Shetty (just kidding ). From the very first screen of the movie you can see the director’s love towards car as onscreen brothers Shahrukh Khan and Varun Dhawan are professional car modifiers in the movie. Movie will definitely gift you some romantic moments to cherish the golden pair of Shahrukh and Kajol.

Even though there are some larger than life actions along with cars exploding in action sequences, you can still see a brilliant chemistry between the lead duo. Kajol is looking awesomely beautiful as Shahrukh too but somewhere the age factor is reflecting with him. Varun Dhawan is looking dashing all over the movie and he looks funny with little bit over acting, but I must say Varun Dhawan delivered some of his brilliant piece of acting in this movie. After many decades, Mr. Johny Lever is back with a bang as he is completely outstanding all over the movie and the whole cast recreated the old nostalgic feelings.

The lacking points of the movie is after the interval the story is little lagging and predictable. A song after interval is completely useless featuring the lead duo. As compared with the first half the second part is little slow but in between there are some good moments also. We can forgive Rohit Shetty for that as if we forget that 20% of such a long 3 hours’ presentation, otherwise the rest 80% is worth watching.

Sanjay Mishra, Varun Sharma, Jhony Lever, and Boman Irani, they are the comic factor of the movie and I assure they will make your day.

Overall it is a better watch for a light colorful entertainer with comedy, romance and little drama. And definitely for the Jodi of Millennium.
