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.
Padmaavat is a visual splendour and the ultimate love letter to the heroism of Queen Padmavati.
In his misguided attempt to replicate the success of Bajirao Mastani, Sanjay Leela Bhansali learns that you can get struck by lightning if you try to capture it in a bottle twice.
Director Sanjay Leela Bhansali's latest period film is an embarrassing display of Hindu nationalism and male machismo. Not even the grandeur and refined spectacle for which Bhansali is known can cloak its shameless denigration of Muslims.
India's most controversial blockbuster is an exciting take on an ancient story.
It is by turns daft, jaw-droppingly epic and often just plain lovable.
Thankfully, Padukone's Padmavati gets to be more than a pretty face in the second half of the film as she rallies the Rajput women in the lead-up to the stirring climax, which is masterfully handled by Bhansali.
An extravagant, often gorgeous bore.
