Bajirao Mastani:-This is a period drama film. It is
based on the Maratha history, although Sanjay Leela Bhansali did make it clear in the disclaimier that the movie is not historically accurate.That does tell us that there has been some modifications for the story but its base is from the Maratha history.
The plot revolves around the love story of a warrior Peshwa Bhajirao(Ranveer singh).The film starts with Chatarapathi Shahu(Mahesh Manjrekar) selecting a person for the post of the Peshwa.Bajirao then proves himself worthy of the post and is rewarded with the title.A messenger apporaches Bajirao for his help against their enemies, this is when Bajirao meets Mastani(Deepika Padukone) for the first time.Bajirao accompanies Mastani to her kingdom and helps her save the kingdom from the enemies.As time passes, married Bhajirao leaves Mastani madly in love with him(she does not know he is married). Back in Pune, Kashi(Priyanka Chopra) welcomes her husband from the battle.
Mastani follows her heart and comes in search of Bajirao to express her love.Bhajirao accepts her as his wife but makes it clear that Kashi would always be his first wife and Mastani accepts for the other conditions and they get married. This is when Kashi,mother Radhabhai(Tanvi Amzi),brother Chimaji(Vaibhav Tatwawdi)and son Nana Saheb(Ayush Tandon),each in their own way prevent Mastani from meeting Bhajirao and take measures to make sure that she does not become apart of the Peshwa family. Masatni is humiliated and even tortured but she would not give up her love for Bhajirao.The story tell us how strong the love is between Bhajirao and Mastani.
Speaking of performances this has been Ranveer singh’s best performance,he was the perfect Maratha warrior.The way he carried himslef,his accent were all just perfect.Deepika as Mastani killed with her looks she was also portrayed has a warrior, she had really done a great job. Priyanka Chopra might have not had a lot of scenes but the ones in which she was present had a huge impact.Tanvi Amzi had done a good job but there was something missing in her performance.The supporting cast Mahesh Manjrekar,Ayush Tandon,Vaibhav Tatwawdi had done an excellent performance especially Tatwadi(Brother Chimaji).
The sets,cinematography of Bhajirao Mastani were extravagent.They were so grand and magnificent,especially the palace interiors, mirrior palace etc. The arts and visuals were amazing.Bhansali is known for his lavish sets and visuals and this one would certainly not let you down. The songs and background scores made the movie have more life especially the song where Kashi and Mastani dance together.
OVERALL:This movie is certainly worth the money you pay. Bajirao Masatni is a movie which would keep you engaged with the film from the very beginning till the end.Even if you do not like history films you would find this one interesting. For a good experience this movie should be watched in theatres for the visuals and effects.
