Sanjay Leela Bhansali is one reason why we do not lose hope on Bollywood. The king of controversy & period drama has proved this multiple times that he is altogether in a different league of Direction and yet again he gifts us another magnum opus. Padmavati trailer is out and every inch of it is grippingly spectacular. You stayed glue from the start of slow melody to the humming ‘Rani Shah, Hamari Aan Baan Hai’.
The movie is set in the thirteenth century when Alauddin Khilji, the prolific & gruesome ruler of Delhi Sultanate sieges the Chittor fort after he’s bowled by the beauty of Rani Padmini, popularly known as Padmavati.
The trailer introduces the magnificent fort of Chittor, which is shouldered by idealistic Rajput king Maharaja Ratan Sen. He looks every bit of promising in the character and he lights up the screen with his charisma.
And then there’s Ranvir Singh, the menancing Surma wearing warrior, whose one glance can scare the shit out of an entire army. He looks fierce and monstrously appealing in the character of Alauddin Khilji and at times he resembles Khal Drogo of Game of Thrones.
The whole movie looks a promising visual treat and we expect fireworks upon its release.
