Sanjay Leela Bhansali doing very well to make me believe that his world creates a visual spectacle. It makes affluent audience overwhelmed with the color sets, serious and intimate lovers in the tragedy which strikes always and ready to suspend the grounds which fall to residence in the director universe for a few hours.
The question is whether I still believing all the time I may decide to suspend logic and participate to Sanjay Leela Bhansali flight fantasy? Although the first half of Raam- Leela was a fascinating to watch, the second half seems too long feuding families who spend so much time trying to level scores and after a point you really do not care to know what will happen after.
Raamleela is a Bollywood love story which is inspired by the legend of Shakespeare’s “Romeo and Juliet”. This movie really stands out in this one with Sanjay Leela Bhansali who shows us that how to deconstruct our traditional typical Bollywood heroine with a positive and enthusiastic heroine. It is a pleasure to watch Deepika Padukon not to doing traditional shy playing rebel.
Ranveer and Deepika have seen in flaming chemistry in the first half which was enormous worth seeing. Well sculpted body of Ranveer and maintained Deepika figure embrace like romantic poetry postures.
There was fragmented situation and hatred between their families to be continuing for many years to see them get apart and it breaks my heart. But then again when the actual tragedy strikes I do not feel any emotion. Interim melodrama and tedious pace in the second half to grab any of my real sorrow and I have felt by the predestined lovers.
Many parts of the activities are reminiscent of what I’ve seen in the movie like Hum Dil de Chuke Sanam and Devdas. The song “Nagada sang Dhol” is one of the ultimate song with the beats. Priyanka Chopra’s item song “Raam chahe Leela chae” is complete new addition to the movie which takes me somewhat out of the movie tragedy for a time being.
I this movie the role played by Supriya Pathak was the best role for the negative in the whole movie. The other strong appearance in the movie is done by Richa Chadda who played very good role and keeps the movie alive with strong female role.
The songs from the movie are the one which keeps audience on the edge. The gujrati dance and the beats take me in the different world. Songs like “Tattad Tattad” and “Nagada sang dhol” make me the fan of the music of this movie.
