  1. Director Mr. Sanjay Leela Bhansali ,is known for taking the scenes far more ahead from screenplay by adding visual magic and he succeeds to create the magic again. He is also master of portraying emotions but this movie lacks his masterstroke. Story is simple, screenplay is OK but dialogues by Siddharth-Garima , are very good mostly. Movie is slow at places even belonging to the action drama romantic genre. Climax is forced because of adaptation. Love scenes are best as usual. Director has given his 200% to conceiving the visuals that he couldn't give his 100% to the emotions. Characters are not well established. A women, who is able to remove bullet from her most loved one person's dead body, possess soft heart!! How!? A person goes to the deadly enemy's house without proper disguise or any other precautions. Even , he can intrude with the help of a tree trunk.Guns are the most common things between them but in pre climax they fight with swords! Main male lead body is deliberately over exposed, which doesn't go well with the premise of the movie, where rest of the person prefers to cover themselves. Performance wise Ranveer Singh is OK but lacks in most of the emotional scenes. Deepika Padukone is adorable. He slaves you to look at herself in every frame. Ratna Pathak is impressive. Richa Chaddha is fine. Music by director himself is OK but lyrics by Siddharth-Garima is very good.

  2. Disappointing is the word with which I would like to start this review. When you know it's Romeo and Juliet, when you have seen Isaq and Isaqzaade you don't expect any thing exceptional from another movie with more or less the concept,plot and story. But when you see the name of Sanjay Leela Bhansali somewhere in your mind you feel may be this could be something different. At least the chemistry between the lead will be worth watching.And that's where, for me,the movie fails miserably. Chemistry is not just about the physical intimacy, it can be felt even when the leads are not sharing the same vicinity, like in the "Lunchbox". May be I was expecting love but there was only lust with lame dialogs. The couple seem to be desperate to get laid and hardly want to know each other. Apart from that there is unnecessary violence.

    There is nothing in the story which can keep you engage towards the screen. Enough of visuals, arts, huge sets and beautiful lass from SLB, its high time to incorporate story, original screenplay in your movie agenda. Even the visuals and set reminds you of some of his work done in the past. Please take some risk, get something new like you did in Khamoshi rather than being of the safe side with gimmicks, item number and cheap dialogs.

    The cinema is changing and its changing for good! Hope you be a part of that change soon.

  3. what a pathetic portrayal of an age old story. the movie rides on Deepika Padukone's skin show with excessive use of colour which could irritate one to the core.There is nothing in the movie which could keep the viewer hooked. Abhimanyu singh's talent is totally wasted, wish he had got more screen time. I personally like movies with violence, but Raam-leela is full of mindless, stupid violence. Must say that violence is not Bhansalis cup of tea.When everything was seen falling apart, there came the final nail in the coffin, Priyankas awful item number. Ranveer is okay, after all the hype much more was expected from him. The only saving grace of the film is Supriya Pathak who pulls off a difficult character with panache.

  4. Do not waste your time

    … unless you watch it just for the sets, not story.

    The only reason to watch this movie would be for the sets and cinematography – Sanja Leela Bhansali is known for this.

    Story is horrible and it appears different parts of the story were written by different people.

    Story is an insult to one's intelligence.

    They have tried to cast the story as modern day Romeo and Juliet, but no way can that comparison hold. Romeo and Juliet was a class apart.

    I wish I had seen Captain Philips instead.
