So, there was a big dilemma which every hindi movie lover faced this week - which movie to watch? Having just one free day, the confusion grew between Bajirao Mastani and Dilwale. Being a democratic family, we voted and Bajirao Mastani won! Well, it turned out to be a really good decision.

The Story:
Bajirao Mastani is a story of a Maratha Peshwa, Shreemant Bajirao Balaji Bhat, portrayed by Ranveer Singh, who served to the fifth Chhatrapati  Shahu Raje Bhosle of the Maratha Empire from 1720 till 1740. He was married to Kashibai portrayed by Priyanka Chopra. He meets Mastani, born in Bundela Rajput clan to Maharaja Chhatrasal, portrayed by Deepika Padukone and falls in love with her. Bajirao was an excellent warrior and fought 41 battles and never lost in any of them. He is credited with expanding the Maratha Empire in the Northern part of India. The movie beautifully shows Bajirao's journey as a Peshwa and as a guy in love.

My Review:
The movie is based on a real-life historical journey of a Maratha Peshwa with slight modifications to history. Yet the way Sanjay Leela Bhansali has directed the story is brilliant. His way of story-telling is unique that you'll not feel disconnected for even a second. All the three main characters and the family members have been well portrayed. To bring out hatred against a character or love for a character is a director's art! Also, the larger-than-life set-up, the amazing dialogues, the royal clothes -it's all just adds up to form the epic!

Ranveer has acquired a marathi accent for the movie and it seems real. He has delivered one of the best performances of his career in this movie and done extreme justice to the character of Bajirao. From his entry in the movie to the end of the film, he just kept me in awe! He has joined the list of my most favorite actors! :D Deepika has played the character of a strong willed woman who is an outstanding warrior along with a great dancer! Deepika has become my favorite nowadays. I do not remember a recent film of hers in which I didn't like her. I might not have liked the movie, but she always wins my heart! She has looked gorgeous throughout the film! She has danced wonderfully in "Deewani Mastani" and also stands out in "Pinga". I never took my eyes off her! Well for Priyanka, I really liked her in Dil Dhadakne Do and Quantico, but this movie, I just didn't like her. Maybe it was the character or just her, I couldn't decide that. Deepika and Ranveer overshadowed Priyanka in Bajirao Mastani! 

Just like Bajirao-Mastani, Ranveer-Deepika's jodi just melts your heart! Love them together! :D :D

My Rating: 4.5 stars out of 5.
My favourite Character: Mastani
My favourite Song: Deewani Mastani
Who will like this movie? Anyone who likes to see intense movies!
