Critic Reviews for RamLeela
A visually opulent, proudly melodramatic entertainer with some great songs and star performances.
This film asks the viewer to dive in and be lost. The trip is both overwhelming and memorable.
Larger-than-life movie in the best sense, a veritable feast for all senses from a truly singular cinematic voice that always demands attention and respect.
Audience Reviews for RamLeela
A couple of the musical numbers made me cringe, but overall the story was great. This adaptation of Romeo and Juliet was very well done to adapt to the cultural differences without changing the fate of the lovers. This story always has a brutal yet beautiful ending.
#13 Colourful, vibrant and not so very good. RamLeela is story set in the background of the 500 year long family feud, where the protagonists from enemy families fall in love leading to chaos, outrage and bloodshed. It is extremely lengthy and somewhere between the pointless 9 songs which appear and the random gunshots, vibrant dance sequences , coated with three long hours of melodrama, Ram Leela crumbles and falls apart and it loses it's plot. The screenplay fails, and takes down the movie with it, pushing the duration of the movie to a total of 3 hours, give or take. The whole episode were the main characters fall in love was a bit too much to digest. Too many cheesy lines with rhyme makes it a bit more cliched. The Art Direction, Direction and cinematography gave the movie a little hope. But still, RamLeela could have been saved if the screenplay would've been refurnished. Acting was good. Amidst all this, Ranveer Singh did a very good job in his role, passably charming, put up greatly with the local accent and did a decent job in playing the heartbroken lover's part. Deepika Padukone put up with it and provided an appreciable work. Average attempt in adapting 'Romeo and Juliet' and blending it with local flavors, but falls short in being satisfying enough.
Do not waste your time watching this movie. I have no clue why this movie was banned. It was not worth (for a court) taking time to ban the movie.
