Storyline

Bajirao 1, who fought over 41 major battles and many others, was reputed never to have lost a single one of them. Bajirao is described as "RANMARD" a man made of and for the battlefield. Bajirao said to his brother "Remember that night has nothing to do with sleep. It was created by God, to raid territory held by your enemy. The night is your shield, your screen against the cannons and swords of vastly superior enemy forces. " A born cavalry leader Bajirao was unequaled for the daring and originality of his genius. Mastani, the fabled warrior princess was the daughter of Raja Chattrasal and his Persian wife Roohani Begum. An expert dancer, singer and warrior, Mastani is sent to battle at the head of the Bundelkhand army. A chance meeting on a war field where they fight on the same side, puts Bajirao and Mastani on a course of passionate love- that is unstoppable by either of their families, by war or by death itself.

Trivia

Wanting to break with norms, Bhansali wanted a night-time war sequence; lighting a large, open field became very difficult and visibility issues were inevitable. See more »

The visual treat retreats
19 December 2015 | by SwapnilagarwalSee all my reviews

Another historical tale, a visually authentic one after 'Jodha Akbar'.

  • Top class performances by all actors - Ranveer outclasses as Bajirao with his awesome acting, 10/10 marathi accent and accurate mannerisms.


  • Priyanka is awesomely graceful and exhibits perfectly, insecurities and mixed emotions of Kashibai.


  • Deepika aka Mastani looks breathtakingly beautiful in each frame and gives yet another class act after Tamasha


  • War scenes have been shot well and look authentic


  • Cinematography is classic and matches the grandeur of a SLB film


  • Music is more marathi folk style. However, too many songs spoil the rhythm of otherwise well knit screenplay


  • 2nd half is sluggish and dragged and this is where movie suffers


Overall its a visual treat for eyes and literally takes you to the medieval era of peshwas, an unexplored terrain in Bollywood so far.
