Bhansali’s grand dramatic love saga is worth a watch

Bajirao Mastani Review…
****
Today:- Bajirao Mastani is Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s most gorgeous-and most political movie. Peshwa Bajirao (Ranveer) extends the Maratha empire across 18th-century India, fighting Mughals and rivals for Chhatrapati Shahu (Mahesh). Suddenly, Bundelkhand reqqires protection, Bajirao approached by its beautiful half-Muslim princess Mastani (Deepika). As Bajirao-Mastani fall in love, how does his wife Kashibai (priyanka) react? And can Bajirao-Mastani battle the bittr opposition they receive? Bajirao Mastani’s most outstanding star is its cinematography. Every visual resembles a grand painting – courts with shadows and chandeliers’ courtiers with tilaks and teers, chambers gleaming with mirrors, skies blushing with passion. Certain shots –Bajirao leaping up an elephant against an indigo sky—stamp themselves onto your memory. Themovie’s battle scenes are grand and complex while its family battles—led by Bajirao’s Ma Sahab (bitterly good Tanvi) and brother Chimaji (Vaibbhav, whose nervous spite impresses)—are acrid and intense. With his faithful friend Ambaji (subtle Milind) and acidic rival Pratinidhi (glittering Aditya), the story takes twists and turns like Bajirao’s Shaniwar Wada palace, where corridors resound with whispers, bedrooms with sighs, courtyards with clashing tempers and swords. Ranveer pulls off Bajirao with chiseled muscles and gleaming eyes, a Marathi lilt that delights, balancing vulnerability and vivaciousness very well. Deepika,s Mastani remains muted—you occasionally glimpse eyes drunk on love, the fire of a fighter-princess, but you miss the fullblown passion of this lead pair. In contrast, by the end, Priyanka impresses as Kashi conveys the quiet sorrow of a wife, a lover, a frieds, forgotten. The end by the way, is marvelous. Where the first half looks fabulous but slightly far-off—like watching an opera from seats high in a theatre’s skies—the second half mesmerizes. Post-interval, Bhansali imbues every frame with epic, precise passion, His question—what should religion do? Tear us to bits? Or bring us closer?—frames an end that is frightening beautiful and powerful. Bajirao Mastani resembles jodhaa Akbar with teeth that bite, Mughal-e-Azam with shades of philosophical grey. It rediscovers roots to Maratha pride—and bravely confronts one of India’s most crucial questions now. Quickly ‘chala’ to the biggest screen you can find
