Bajirao Mastani Review:




Sanjay Leela Bhansali would direct a film based on the historical threesome of Peshwa Bajirao, Mastani and Kashibai. Ultimately, the wait was worth it. Not just because Priyanka Chopra, Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone headline a superbly talented cast, but because if there was ever a time to tell Bajirao, Kashi and Mastani's story, it is now.

Set in 18th century Maharashtra, Bajirao Mastani is based on the story of Peshwa Bajirao and his two wives, Kashi Bai and Mastani. Bajirao was a great warrior and it was during one of his campaigns that he effectively won Mastani, the daughter of a Bundela king and his Persian wife. While Kashi was the first wife and the mother of Bajirao's heir, the second wife Mastani proved to be something of a soulmate. She was a good enough warrior to ride into battle alongside Bajirao. Off the battlefield, she was a gifted singer and dancer.


Singh looks fantastic as Bajirao and it's difficult to imagine another man who would be able to carry off that thoroughly unflattering hairstyle as well Singh does. However, while Singh is charismatic as the Peshwa and warrior, when Bajirao Mastani turns its attention away from battlefields, Singh is less majestic. It probably doesn't help that Bhansali keeps making Bajirao walk into pools as though Bajirao was hoping he'd have a Jesus Christ moment and be able to walk on water. Either that or Bhansali figured that rather than risk raising the censor board's censure, he'd show Bajirao and his lady loves literally get wet instead of showing their attraction towards one another.

In addition to his three stars, Bhansali has some talented actors in the supporting cast, like Tanvi Azmi as Bajirao's mother and Vaibbhav Tatwawdi, who plays Bajirao's brother Chimaji. Everyone overacts, but evenly, which gives the film the consistently flamboyant tone that has become Bhansali's trademark.
