This is one movie you won’t be able to stay away from. Padmavati, directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali has become one of the most anticipated movie of the year. We all have seen his previous films Bajirao Mastani and Goliyon ki Rasleela and they have always been equated with visual grandeur. The movie stars Deepika Padukone, Shahid Kapoor and Ranveer Singh in the lead roles. Recently the Padmavati trailer of this upcoming hindi film was released and it promises nothing less.
The three-minute trailer, released on Monday, is a perfect amalgamation of vibrant colours. From the bright red of the Rajputana women’s skirts, to the colored face of Ranveer Singh all the way to the ashy grey of Alauddin Khilji’s tents. This majestic movies is based on the story of Rani Padmavati of Chittor played by Deepika, who was married to MahaRawal Ratan Singh played by Shahid in the film. The menacing and deadly Alauddin Khilji is portrayed to perfection by the charming Ranveer Singh.
Rani Padmavati is looking bold, ferocious and all set to rock the hearts of the audiences. According to the legends she was the one who lead hundreds of Rajput women to commit jauhar to avoid being captured by Alauddin Khilji. Ranveer playing the role to it’s perfection looks like he’s just walked out Game of Thrones. The vibes and look of this actor totally resembles the Khal Drogo played by Jason Mamoa. The rest of his frames are cloaked in desolation his tents are tattered and dusty, his retinue just as cheerless.
The movie has already faced protests in the past where shooting was stalled on several occasions after the sets were vandalised. Government officials and police had to go so far as to assure the industry that law and order would be under control. Well this is the price the filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali paid to make his one of the biggest hindi films ever made. The Padmavati cast also includes Aditi Rao Hydari and Jim Sarbh to make the show bigger and better. Hold your breath and watch out for the Padmavati trailer as the movies releases on December 01 this year.
