  • When I walked out of the movie theatre screening Padmaavat, I was shaking in rage.

  • With its lavish sets; catchy, narratively-driven songs; and powerhouse performances, Padmaavat is even greater than the sum of its already-commendable parts.

  • Padmaavat's sumptuous palace interiors and classically inspired music lend elegance to the film without overpowering it - a welcome shift in tone from the director of the lavish but uneven Devdas and Saawariya.

  • "Padmaavat" is a rare work of pop art that is both powerful and repugnant.

  • A lavish 3-D pageant with the depth of a children's pop-up book.

  • Such excess could have proved deadening, but dynamic deployment of old-school star power keeps almost all its scenes alive with internal tensions.
