Padmaavat movie offical trailer –
There are three disclaimers before even a frame of “Padmaavat” is shown on screen. All kinds of adjectives and verbs are used to make sure the audience knows the film is based on Malik Muhammad Jayasi’s epic poem, “Padmavat”, and that the film does not intend to hurt anyone’s sentiment. That’s understandable given that street protests against the film have turned increasingly violent, with reports of vandalism around a number of multiplexes in Gujarat on Tuesday, and more protests planned by Hindu groups who accuse director Sanjay Leela Bhansali of distorting history.
‘Padmaavat’ is undoubtedly one of the highly controversial films made in the past few years. There were threats the makers right from the shooting stage and the sets were vandalised by Karni Sena members protesting that director Sanjay Leela Bhansali and his team is trying to distort historical facts. The team had issues with the censor initially and they faced a ban from a few states.
Supreme Court intervened in the issue and lifted the ban on the film by the four state governments and ordered them to provide security for the theaters screening ‘Padmaavat’. It is known that ‘Padmaavat’ is set for release on January 25. As the protests are still continuing, the makers held special screenings for the media and film critics in Chennai, Hyderabad cities yesterday.
Critics started showering praises on the film right after the premiers. They have given unanimous thumbs up to the director Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s visual feast. They are saying that the three lead actors Deepika Padukone, Shahid Kapoor and Ranveer Singh delivered memorable performances in the film. They are saying that Ranveer Singh stole the show with his intense acting. We have to wait for a day more to know the response of the common audience.
Traffic Responce – Sanjay Leela Bhansali doesn’t hold back in telling his adaptation of Malik Muhammad Jayasi’s 16th Century epic poem Padmavat. He creates a clear difference between good and bad, right and wrong, with Ratan Singh and Padmavati placed firmly on the higher side of the divide. In terms of physical placement too. Alauddin Khilji, the fallen, will have to climb the stairs to the fort to meet the divine Ratan Singh.
Alauddin Khilji, the barbarian, has not one redeeming quality in him. Every scene helps widen the chasm between the white and the black (no prizes for guessing who is what). Every frame backs Bhansali’s claim that Padmaavat is his tribute to the valour and pride of the Rajputs. So much so, that your ears start hurting at the mention of words like ‘usool‘ and ‘guroor‘ quite early in the film.But in most parts, that is because most of these heavy words are spouted by an unbelievably wooden Shahid Kapoor, who maintains exactly one expression throughout the 2-hour-44-minute film. Shahid steps into the shoes of Maharawal Ratan Singh and leaves his audience with hardly an impact.Such is Kapoor’s coldness in the film, that even his chemistry with Deepika Padukone, Rani Padmavati, comes across as a burden on the senses.
Deepika shines in the scenes where she is in charge; most of them without Shahid in the frame. Padukone is in the driver’s seat of Padmaavat after the interval. In the first half, she is reduced to a singing-dancing-pagdi-tying queen decked in kilos of gold. The sexual tension in Padmaavat, therefore, is left to Ranveer Singh. And boy, does he do justice to it!As the mad king, Singh is unspeakably brilliant. Ranveer is a director’s dream. In Bhansali, he submits himself as the clay that is moulded as an Alauddin Khilji who will be remembered for years. Ranveer gives an oeuvre-defining performance in Padmaavat; he is the reason why this film is more than just a visually-grand spectacle.Ranveer is the sole reason why the problems in Padmaavat appear both glaring and inconspicuous.
Among Padmaavat’s problems, is the way Ranveer’s character is written. He is often compared to the ‘Yamraj’ from whom ‘Savitri’ gets her husband back. He eats like an animal and fornicates like a beast. Bhansali uses Khilji’s character to fiercely prove that his words have value. That Padmaavat, at the end of the day, is only about showing everything that’s bad about these Muslim heathens and everything that’s good about the Suryavanshi Rajputs. So much for the Karni Sena’s wrath!Bhansali’s depiction of Khilji is not the only problem with Padmaavat.
The main act of treason in the film, one that starts the entire chain of explosive reactions, is never explained to the viewer. With the enemy right outside their door, the Rajputs are celebrating festivals at the Garh, for nearly half a year from Diwali to Holi. Because Ratan Singh hopes Khilji will ‘melt’ in Mewar’s summer sun and gradually go back. The characters of Ratan Singh and Padmavati both appear hollow and undeveloped. And it doesn’t help that Shahid puts in a half-hearted performance and Deepika doesn’t have many opportunities to shine.
Compare Padmavati to Mastani. It feels like a betrayal.Jim Sarbh is the other actor, apart from Ranveer, who is allowed to make a mark on the audience, albeit in a limited role. Sarbh makes the most of Malik Kafur, Khilji’s slaveboy who furthers his perversions and takes care of his needs.Padmaavat is a visual delight. Bhansali excels in the war scenes. Khilji riding into a sandstorm and emerging out of it with the prize of his ‘fateh‘ is a sequence worth remembering.As is the one where Deepika readies the Rajputana women and leads them to their final sacrifice.
Bhansali handles the sombre climax of the film with expertise. Jauhar, a custom that is deeply regressive from the perspective of this era, is dealt with carefully, as Bhansali’s haunting background score prepares the audience for what’s in store.But Padmaavat is hardly the ‘history-changing’ film that the Karni Sena is screaming themselves hoarse for. It is, at best, an average film that is elevated primarily by Ranveer’s fabulous performance, and in parts by the opulence of it.
Watch Padmaavat for the visual extravaganza that it is. And for Ranveer Singh, who deserves an extra star for Khilji.You take Khilji home with you; out of the theatre. Everything else is done with in the jauhar ki jwala.
