Padmavat revolves around a royal couple deeply in love with each other and a ruthless neighbouring King madly in lust over the queen. The eventual fallout between the kingdoms is told in a 3 hour long visual spectacle. The movie is watchable for the signature Bhansali sets/dance sequences and Ranveer’s powerhouse acting. It also makes you realise the farce of the Karni Sena agitation over nothing at all. The movie upholds Rajput pride very much though it wouldn’t make much sense in current context.
There was only lingering question on my mind at the end!! How did those royalty wear such extravagant clothes all day long when I couldn’t manage even for a 3 hour reception ?
