RamLeela โ€“ The Actual Ras Leela

Like every family, i also planned a movie with my family (me & my wife) this weekend. One smart move we learnt is to watch morning shows since their ticket cost is cheaper than the other shows on a weekend. ย ๐Ÿ™‚ Like every middle class family, we also have our own little plans and one way to achieve those is by a smart budget rather than spending too much. Anyways, about the movie. After a brief discussion, we decided to watch RamLeela.
a) Sanjay Leela Bhansali movie.
b) Colourful it will be. (girls like this part)
c) A good watch for family.

The Movie:
The movie started with a bang, especially how they introduced Ranveer and how they visually displayed the enemity between two castes. I will try to keep minimum bloopers and details. The movie moved on slowly slowly, crawling by. A colorful screen and some excellent dresses and Jewellry (for girls) can be seen. Also,another main entertainment throughout the movie was the 6 pack abs of Ranveer and Deepika. At one point we started to look at our watches and also came to a feeling that there is no interval for this movie. If you are waiting to hear about a story, Nothing much happened in this movie till now, nothing is happening other than the colorful screen, colorfully dressed people and some songs. Suddenly something happens and it is interval. And yes, they both fell in love the most unusually simple way and they are in Lust more than love.
Summary of 1st Half:
1) Richa Chaddha & Supriya Pathak’s brilliantย ย perfomances.
2) Ranveer & Deepika’s Abs.
3) Guns used by people in both Communities (Rajadis & Saneras)
4) Some scenes where kids have to keep their eyes closed.
Second half, expectation of a story, something going to happen, chance of a climax building up. Movie starts, starts cruising at a higher speed than 1st half, nothing much happening. Emotions, non sense, relationship, enemity, guns & blood bath. Movie is over, Ram<->leela.
What happened Actually?
Ram & Leela falls in love, their familes are enemies since 500years and the same old bollywood formula mixed with a bit more complicated relationship, guns, Colors and blood. ย In the end, we came out with disbelief that this movie is by the man who made Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam, Khamoshi etc.
Summary of 2nd half:
1) Complicated relationship between Ram & leela.
2) Enemity between Ram & Leela’s Family.
3) Guns used by people in both Communities (Rajadis & Saneras)
4) Colorful backdrops , Lehangas ย & Ornaments remain.
5) A bit violence, blood shed, ย treachery & death.

Take Away from the Movie –
The dresses worn by deepika is going to become a trend among ladies. The ornaments and decor may also become trend. Brilliant performances by Supriya Pathak, Richa Chaddha, Deepika & Ranveer which in the end looses the charm because of the weak script and the way it was shot. Some good song ย & dance sequences which you can use in next Navaratri.
Our Verdict:
People who likes to watch colorul Sanjay leela bhansali movies for the sake of watching it go ahead. Not advisable to watch with kids since there are some scenes which are above parental guidance and some dialogues (i know kids are smarter).
Rating – 1/5
We had said earlier, we will write suggestion about movie which can be watched by a family and hence we specified about the kids part.
