It has become a dominating fact that when Sanjay Leela Bhansali take up a project, the curiosity and intensity associated with it reaches the topmost cloud. Be it Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam, Devdas, Bajirao Mastani, Ram Leela or this December’s grand release, Padmavati, the visionary director knows how to give a cinema that makes audience go super excited.
There are massive expectations from Padmavati and after all the controversies happened in last few months, people want to know and focus more on the content of the film. More often than not, big expectations result in disappointment but not with Bhansali. The trailer of Padmavati has actually exceeded the audience expectations and this says a lot about the director’s confidence in himself and his crew.
In 3 minutes 9 seconds of Padmavati trailer, the epic story of Queen, her love for her king and the furious evil intentions of the villain have created such a mesmerizing experience that makes you watch the trailer again and again.
In a world where Baahubali 2 has already set the bar high for film-makers in periodic films and with the world’s most loved TV series Game of Thrones. the storytelling of periodic times has been top notch. But, in Bollywood, no one has dared to do and achieve so much in artistic design and richness of historic events as Bhansali.
The visual delight to see Deepika Padukone as Queen Padmavati, her royal attire, then Shahid Kapoor as Maharawal Ratan Singh as a righteous king, their romance, and finally, the beast Sultan Alauddin Khilji, played by the energetic Ranveer Singh, these three elements are more than enough to get you deep into the trailer.
For first minute, there is only music which tells the story and grabs your attention. Bajirao Mastani is Ranveer Singh’s career defining film but we think, with such a furious display of character of Khlji, Padmavati can be Ranveer Singh’s greatest ever performance. He is truly looking threatening.
The face off between Ranveeer and Shahid on a battlefield will be worthy to witness but even the small portion of aggression shown in the trailer is an enough hint to know that audience won’t be disappointed. It’s very rare nowadays but Padmavati’s trailer is a storyteller in itself. It shows enough to raise the curiosity but keeps enough as well from us to make us impatient.
