Love can be stated in numerous ways, it can be impractical or overwhelming, silly or remarkable. But it all hinges on the director, the way he portrays the emotion or sentimentality and magnetize you with his clever conception.
Inspired from the classic Romeo & Juliet, SLB narrates the movie in a diverse manner which takes place in a illusory world where people are aggressive in nature and ferocious in their acts. Regardless with the fact that they belong to different communities, Ram & Leela fell in love with each other and discover amorousness in every meet. However, things usually go tremendously wrong which compels them to take erroneous decisions.
Nevertheless, an inspired customary plot didn't add something novel and fresh for us to think upon. But it's definitely the on-screen performances and the artistic presentation which made me pay my full attention to it.
What really enamored me the most were the performances from the leads, Ranveer & Deepika were phenomenal in the movie. Their fervor and the amount of commitment they put in every single scene was appealing to stare at, also the chemistry between the two really lifted up the movie to another level and is undoubtedly one of the most superlative performances I've seen in recent times.
Known for using flamboyant colors in his narration, SLB re-created the magic and astonished me with his immense film making skills. Every single frame shot by the cinematographer Ravi Varman expresses it's desire and fascinates you as a viewer. Each and every costume, article and items used were examined and presented really well whic fits into the perfect mood. And the set designs were quite incredible too.
As per my issues about the movie, it was quite confusing on it's approach, the sub plots and other predictable twists didn't make much sense. And the two and half hour length of the movie certainly tests your patience, as you may not get invested as much they want you to.
To sum it up, Ram-Leela is a gorgeous looking movie and is a great example of remarkable film making. Despite it's issues, the performances and the vivid cinematography gives you an astonishing cinematic experience only if you're patient with the movie.
PS: Do watch it in a biggest screen possible with perfect picture quality and sound.
My Rating - 3/5
Grade - B (Worth a watch!)
