Very much Bhansali,yet not really him!
10 November 2007 | by prateekfigo-1See all my reviews

After Black,which was quite a milestone in Indian cinema,anything he would make would have been liked by the audience.Then came Saawariya.I can confidently say,nobody else would have been able to make a movie so visually alluring and spectacularly stunning.It's just a treat for an individual's eye.But,having high expectations from this director was not really a mammoth thing,and I feel sorry that he hasn't lived up to those pre-release drama.If Saawariya was made by any other director,it would have been well-received by the audience and critics alike.He's a dream director ,that's for sure,but the movie lacked a much needed script.Ranbir Kapoor and Sonam Kapoor could not have asked for a better film-maker to launch them.But still the meager runtime of two hours and eight minutes looks a bit too long. Regarding the performances,Rani,playing a prostitute for her second successive movie,portrays her character beautifully well.She again proves herself being the queen of Bollywood.Ranbir Kapoor has done a good job in his role as a happy-go-lucky dreamer.His jawline and face-cut looks strikingly similar to that of his mother Neetu Kapoor.Sonam Kapoor looks beautiful and has done a fine job too.Salman Khan didn't have much screen-time to show his potential,but he looks a tad too old. All in all,Saawariya,visually speaking,looks and feels like very much Sanjay Leela Bhansali,but critically speaking,it's not really Sanjay Leela Bhansali!
