Directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali, ‘Padmavati’, is one of the most awaited films of 2017. Starring Deepika Padukone as Rani Padmini, Shahid Kapoor as Rawal Ratan Singh and Ranveer Singh as Alauddin Khilji, the film is expected to be an epic saga. The film’s large scale and grandeur has been the talking point about and looking at the promo, it feels like SLB has delivered on his long standing tradition. The looks of the three lead characters has already received a lot of love from the audience.

The film is all set to release on December 1. This will be Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s third collaboration with Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone after ‘Goliyon Ki Rasleela Ram-Leela’ (2013) and ‘Bajirao Mastani’ (2015). However, this is Shahid Kapoor’s first project with the acclaimed director.

The film’s trailer shows the love story between Shahid and Deepika’s characters. But it is Ranveer’s character that completely takes away the cake. The grey shades of his character are brought out by his menacing eyes and one can certainly say, that Ranveer will walk away with all the accolades for this one. Ranveer Singh’s mannerisms look completely in tune with his character. Much like all of SLB’s films, the sets and the costumes in this one are extravagant.

Ranveer Singh does not have any dialogue in the trailer of the film but one can expect that he will nail his part perfectly. His work in ‘Bajirao Mastani’ was highly applauded and the collaboration between the actor-director has worked wonders for both. Deepika Padukone’s costumes are regal and she looks completely mesmerising. Shahid Kapoor followed a strict gym routine to look perfect for the part. The actor was on a diet for 40 days during which he was supposed to consume 50 gms of brown rice and steamed vegetables on a daily basis. He also went off sugar and salt for 15 days so he could look perfect while his close-ups were being filmed.

The film releases on December 1.

          Too much overacting and jewellery flaunting. Indian period movies are getting very similar look wise. They could have taken a fresh take. The war scenes look dated. Unimpressed!

            It is fair to say that Ranveer is beginning to look like Khal Drago of "GOT" fame?
