Ram-Leela Movie Review
Sanjay Leela Bhansali is known for creating magnanimous amount of background and screenplay detailing. But what about the other face of life and truth?
Ram-Leela is a “movie” and we are reminded of this fact in each and every possible way. We see a “rivalry” of 500 years, so many “bullets” and above all, the dresses people wear in a village setup can challenge our fashion designers any day. This is no complain when this is one thing everyone should expect from Bhansali, but what about the other things like story, scripting, etc.. etc..
Ram-Leela fails on the basics of cinema that is getting connected with the audience. Find a place in Rajasthan that can remotely be like the one shown here. Still, Ram-Leela will not leave you isolated as Bhansali knows his audience very well.
Ram-Leela : Plot & StoryLine
Bhansali has set the story for Ram-Leela somewhere in “Rajasthan-Gujarat” where rivalry is taken so seriously – drawn in blood and sworn on bullets. Yes! You will get shot many times during the movie.
Ram (Ranveer Singh) & Leela (Deepika Padukone) enact the fairytale love at first sight and like many bollywood movies are members of opposite clans. The inseparable love is set on flames, infact sets everything around them in flames only to be unification of two clans in the end. But do Ram & Leela also share an ending is left upto you to find out.
Even though we find Ram & Leela symbolising love, there is no chemistry between this Ram & Leela.
The Good Thing
Deepika proves out to be stronger than before. We see excellent acting, except for the chemistry part from both Ranveer Singh & Deepika Padukone.
There is no doubt about Sanjay Leela Bhasali’s capabilities. He is the only one who can create a larger than life effect.
However, Ravi Varman’s cinematography is the only thing you will appreciate without a second thought.
The Bad thing
There is no sense in Goliyon ki Rasleela, Ram-Leela. The only audience that will appreciate it is either a SLB’s crazy follower or someone with masochistic fetish.
Ram-Leela does not excels in a fantasy world, nor does it gives a face-off with the reality. The slices of “chevy sms jokes” makes it more flawed.
Ram-Leela Movie Review : Final Verdict
You don’t have options this weekend. Ram-Leela will impress you with its cinematography and will distress you with its story. There is no perfect balance in this world.
I’ll leave it up to you for deciding your priorities and whether you want to visit this average half-hearted presentation from Sanjay Leela Bhansali or not.
BlogtoBollywood will go with a rating of 2.5 on a scale of 5 for Ram-Leela.
