Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Bajirao Mastani is raking in the love of audience besides gathering oodles of notes at the box office. Despite its release date clash with Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol starrer Dilwale, the historic drama is receiving some good reviews from critics and filmgoers, with fans pouring over the social media to salute the leading actors Ranveer Singh, Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra for their sterling performances.
What makes Bajirao Mastani a masterpiece is the exceptional acting of all the stars particularly the sturdy Ranveer Singh and the stunning beauties Deepika and Priyanka. There couldn’t be a better combo to fulfill Bhansali’s dream of an outstanding historical romance film and that too so amazingly.
The film unfolds the story of Maratha warrior Peshwa (Prime Minister) Bajirao I of the Maratha Empire and his wives. Priyanka Chopra has played the role of Kashibai, Bajirao’s first wife while Deepika has dazzled as Mastani, his second wife.
The romance and chemistry between Bajirao and Mastani is intense, seductive and exquisitely appealing. It indeed is one of the main highlights of the film. While Bajirao is stubborn, rebellious, sharp, opinionated, bold and loyal, Mastani too is gallant and open to express her love without losing the dignity.
The first half of the movie is so engaging that you might not notice how quickly the time flies, but the second half seems a bit stretched. Filled with romantic dialogues and less action sequence, the post-interval film appears a bit slow, but Deepika-Ranveer chemistry will keep you glued to your seats.
Despite being interesting, the story line seems weak at points but the power-packed performance of two dazzling Bollywood divas keeps the audience hooked.
Packed with some incredible music scores, brilliant camera work, intelligent art direction and beautiful costumes, Bajirao Mastani is a must watch!
