Director: Sanjay Leela Bhansali
Story of a Tapori Romeo and Kickass Hot Juliet.
Bhansali moves Shakespeare’s story to a new-style culture of violent town conflict in small town Gujurat,India, with some additional sequences in the tourist-destination palaces of Rajasthan. The period is probably not worth trying to pin down: the characters talk constantly on cell phones and sell pirated blue film DVDs, but they also drive dusty black 1940s cars.And not to forget they talk about twitter too
The impressively actor Ranveer Singh (“Lootera”) is Ram, a “brother” (Bhai) in a crime family whose businesses include gun marketing and pornography. Ram is an complete differnt guy in this hair-trigger community because he would much rather chase women than the clan’s enemies.The rising star Deepika Padukone (“Chennai Express”) is Leela, staunchly resisting her family’s attempts to arrange a marriage with a dweeby Indian from London.
The most effective sequences the two stars have together are the large-scale dance numbers, which are beautifully, imaginatively staged and excellently choreographed. The film has five credited choreographers, which probably accounts for the fact that the styles of dancing vary significantly from scene. It helps that both performers are terrific, athletic dancers.They never convey the required emotional depth and turmoil.
Well as of acting in concerned, both Ranvir and deepika did a splendid job.
Bhansali makes a fool out of us for watching,but still you would love to watch for Deepika.
For all its beauty, it’s a baffling film.It was a more of a Rasleela with totally uncensored dialogues.
I am not a Hindu fanatic here but The Lord Ram was portrayed in a negative way.
Ram-Leela movie name should have been renamed to Ras-Leela
Heads up: Don’t watch it with your family
