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.

Watch it for Ranveer and Priyanka also for Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Direction
19 December 2015 | by javeedahwarSee all my reviews

I went to watch it thinking that it is a sequel to Ram Leela. Sanjay proved me wrong. Bajirao Mastani is a good film with fantastic plot, good direction, great supporting cast and tightly edited. Let me tell you what surprised me the most?

Priyanka Chopra steals the show and force you to become her fan. I was stuck in depth of her performance. Ranveer was the main surprise. Bajirao was a difficult role to play and Ranveer was damn good at it. Deepika was not in good form. She seemed to be copying Ashwariya from Juda Akbar and Madhu Bala.

Sanjay focuses on emotions more than wars and beautifully concludes the film with a dialogue that love is above religion and love does not need the approval of religion to take place.

Over all, watch this film for great story, great execution of it, for Priyanka Chopra, for good direction, for good dialogues and screenplay. It is a joyful ride and do not miss it. After Bajrangi Bhaijaan it is the second best film of the year for Bollywood. I give it 7 out 10 for the beauty of this journey and deduct 3 points for Deepika's acting, illogical ending and some unanswered questions.
