After three hours of glossy, bulky sub drama, a graceless one on one battle between Maharawal and Khilji comes to an end followed by the animated climax.
Bhansali has been as disappointing as ever, mysteriously again failed to make it a point to answer the question – why this movie ?
Wrong choice of characters, Maharaval more than a king was looking like a security guard of Chittor fort and Khilji- not sure what was expected out of him, an eunuch himself with Shutarmurgh, or a Monkey or a Bear. More than controversy on Maharani – and Rajput’s getting annoyed, it should be Brahmins (the way Raghav Chetan was treated) and Musician’s (the way conversation on Raag Yaman went), who should object and request a ban on this visual.
Except for shots on Singhal Pradesh during initial 10 mins and Khilji’s monkey dance post interval, audience had been wanting and missed the scenes made for 3D.
With all this high drama before the movie release, Bhanasali again successfully gets audience to watch another of his movies.
However at the end Art wins again and loads of congratulations from the art lover to an artist Bhansali for courage, showmanship, believing in himself .
