Totally Opposite to all declaims we have been hearing about ‘Padmaavat’, it is nothing but a sense of relief around the rather abnormal activities we have been observing for the past 3 months.
The film lifts off the curtain from some false stories which were being framed and is essentially a saga to the pride & valor of the Rajputs.
The story of movie ‘Padmaavat’ is based on the epic poem of Malik Muhammed Jayasi. The story revolves around lives of Rani Padmavati of Singhal, Chittor’s Maharawal Ratan Singh and Sultan of Delhi Allauddin Khilji.Yielding to the pressure by the fringe elements, the film began with the clear disclaimer that history has not been distorted, in any way.
Although Ranveer has been shown in the worst light, Ranveer as Khilji has laid a strong impact.You may abhor him, you may dislike his madness, and unfaithfulness might disturb you. But you will end up applauding him.
DEEPIKA’S GLORY AS RANI PADMAVATI
Other than being a treat to eyes, Deepika has justified her character very well.Totally opposite to the notions we have about queens, she is not infirm, she is not bounded to her kingly-bedroom. She is not just a personification of beauty but also of courage.
Deepika, as Padmavati, leaves us with a thirst to watch more.
Vision like Bhansali to make a film ‘Padmaavat’ is hard to get in other. Be it the way the story goes ahead, the cinematography or the amount of prominence put on every character, he has proved that he knows his job best.
The comfort with which his actors have stepped into their characters is one of the many reasons that make him a great director.
RAWAL RATAN SINGH
Although Shahid perfectly portrayed the role of Maharaja Ratan Rawal Singh, somewhere his character got overshadowed by Deepika’s splendor and Ranveer’s deadly look.
He did complete justice to the different sections he was given to play, including the romantic part.
His character extols the pride of Rajputs.
But somewhere underutilization of Sahid can be felt. And your heart will demand more.
Contradicting false claims, Padmaavat glorifies Rajputs. Padmaavat not only presents honesty, greatness, and glory of the kings but also shows the role of the queen in making kings great warriors. The film doesn’t frame a single sequence between Padmavati and Alauddin Khilji. It actually glorifies Kshatriya.
Although the film is lengthy but doesn’t seem agonizing because of the holding storyline. Whatever misconceptions have been built about it will get buzzed out as soon as you watch. ‘Padmaavat’ doesn’t hurt the sentiments of any religious community. And has an amazing cinematic experience after ‘Bahubali’. And to trust it you need to watch this movie.
Ola Rating: 4.5/5.
