Goliyon Ki Rasleela: Ram Leela Movie Review


Ratings:3.5/5 Review By: Rajeev Masand Site:Masand's Verdict (CNN IBN)
Sanjay Leela Bhansali turns Ram Leela into such a passionate celebration of love, you can't help be seduced by it. In the end it is Bhansali - credited for screenplay, editing, music, and direction - who leaves his stamp all over the film. He brings great style and aesthetic to an unapologetically commercial film, which I'm happy to say is far more engaging than the lazy blockbusters we've seen lately. I'm going with three-and-a-half out of five for Ram Leela. It's great fun - not the word you'd normally associate with a Sanjay Leela Bhansali film.

RAM-LEELA not only has a spellbinding effect, but it ships you to an unfamiliar world absolutely. You may have an inkling of the plot, but you definitely don't know how SLB will give an altogether innovative twirl to the premise. On the whole, GOLIYON KI RAASLEELA RAM-LEELA ought to be watched for multiple reasons: the electrifying chemistry between its lead actors, the strong dramatic content, the scintillating musical score, the violent streak in the narrative and of course, Sanjay Leela Bhansali's execution of the material. This is Sanjay Leela Bhansali's most accomplished work to date. It's a work of outstanding artistry. No two opinions about it. A masterpiece by the master craftsman Sanjay Leela Bhansali!

Ram-leela is Shakespeare on steroids and for the first half, it works wonderfully. But the narrative starts to wobble just before interval and post mid-point derails completely. The plot becomes more and more clumsy and the joy we have in these characters is snuffed out by violence and ugliness. In her last few films, Deepika has stolen the show from her heroes but this one belongs to Ranveer. Still Deepika and Ranveer make Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-leela worth watching. I’m going with three stars. One is for the two of them.

Ram-Leela (UA) is a love story set against the backdrop of enmity, hatred, violence and bloodshed.On the whole, Ram-Leela is a surefire hit. The film has masala for audiences of all classes and age-groups. It will score in multiplexes as well as single-screen cinemas, in big cities as also smaller centres. It will be liked by the classes as well as the masses.

The first aspect that really stands out about Ram Leela is just how s**ual, and how intensely physical the film is without any actual s** or skin show. You've not really seen such visuals, but you've experienced the story before.  So can we reward a film for the way it looks, superlative acting, and a director who knows exactly what he's doing despite the indulgence in the writing department that stretches the story to a point until it nearly snaps? Why not.

Ratings:5/5 Review By: Meena Iyer Site:Times Of India (TOI)
Quite unabashedly, the filmmaker uses his lead pair's real and reel chemistry, fuses it with s**ual tension and makes it compelling for you to partake in their love-hate relationship. For the most part, Ram-Leela, SLB's most commercial work till date, has nice doses of raunch and ras (juice). Deepika is breathtaking and in top form. Ranveer displays his six packs and histrionics with fair ease. This could be the start of his journey into superstardom. You have to also applaud Richa Chadda and Supriya Pathak Kapur for being the talent they are.

It is a bit of a miracle that the film doesn’t actually implode and disintegrate in a giant blaze like some explosives-laden Ravana effigy on a festive night. If you are drawn by the raw magnificence of the setting and the inevitable excitement of the occasion – after all an SLB offering cannot but be an event film – here’s sound advice: your travel agent could do a better job of getting you to Kutch. Goliyon ki Raasleela Ram-Leela is all body and no soul.

Goliyon Ki Rasleela Ram-Leela -- an acronym of which unfailingly reminds me of Greater Kailash Residential associations -- is a monstrously excessive film with a riot of colours, a girl who looks very pretty indeed and a daft hero, but despite that being the warning on the tin whenever you attempt (foolhardily) to buy into a Bhansali product, this can’t be what you bargained for. GKRR is an overplotted, bloody mess.

It is a lovely mixture of the familiar and the fresh. It is impossible to watch this film impassively. There are enough magical scenes, to make you feel you have to watch it a second time to soak it all in. This is a movie about love and hate and there are parts that you will love and portions you might hate but you cannot remain dispassionate and that would be this director's best compliment.This is a film by a true romantic, who is brimming with crazy passion. If you share that with him, watch it.

'Ram-Leela' creates a couple that ignites the screen, and most of the time when these two are on screen, you keep watching. It's when the guns come on, and the gun-masters start roaring and shouting, that the love-story drowns, and everything gets both too noisy and too choreographed. I enjoyed the lovers, and their ram-leela: if only the film had been more ras, not goli-leela, more roses than guns.

Sanjay Leela Bhansali gives Shakespeare’s ‘Romeo and Juliet’ a befitting Indian twist. There have been exceptions like ‘Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak’ and ‘Ishaqzaade’, which adapted Shakespeare’s love story sincerely, so Sanjay’s ‘Ram Leela’ isn’t novel in thought, but he has tweaked it with incredible passion and intensity, making it one of the most befitting adaptations ever. While Sanjay’s indulgent script, which runs into two-hours-and-thirty-five-minutes might appear a bit tedious, we forgive him because what he eventually spins out is an enchanting love story.

Goliyon Ki Rasleela Ram Leela has each and everything that you expect in a Sanjay Bhansali film. Picture perfect frames, huge colourful sets, beautiful heavy costumes, emotions, poetic lines and melodrama. It's a spectacular show!The film has a lot of moments that stay with you, Ram and Leela's passionate attraction that draws them to each other is very well done and that's what makes the kissing scenes just a part of the big picture.It's well hyped and still surpasses all expectations. For me Goliyon Ki Rasleela Ram Leela is a masterpiece!

Ramleela is one of India’s most novel take of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet. There is an alluring magic in the film that will enchant you. The primary reason why you shouldn’t miss this one is because of Ranveer and Deepika’s wonderful and visceral chemistry. It is quite a daunting affair to encapsulate the nuances of love’s wilderness and Ramleela epitomizes the menacing feral love between its lead characters with poise and ease.

  2. Why would a ranveer singh movie be hyped up after all he is hardly a hero material Anushka made band baaja baraat hit now he hopes Deepika will do it for this particular movie.

    1. Ranveer Singh did a good job in most of his movies.
      1. Band Baaja Baaraat: Giving credit only to Anushka would be unfair. Ranveer's performance was also on par with Anushka though it was his first film.
      2. Ladies vs. Ricky Bahl: Even here he was good and gave an acceptable performance as a con man.
      3. Lootera: This was masterpiece of all of Ranveer's movies. I never expected such a mature performance by a kind of personality he is, but he nailed it on his part. Lootera was an awesome piece of art in all aspects be it story, direction, cinematography, music, capturing 1950's era, etc. out of which here too he did his part well and made a mark.
      4. Ram-Leela: Yet to watch this one. By trailers his performance seems good here too, but yes... agreed, Deepika seems a bit better here.

      So with just 4 movies, Ranveer has very well proved himself as a class actor. He is proving himself to be a better than Shahid or Ranbir these days.

    2. IS SANJAY LEELA BHANSALI REALLY A GREAT DIRECTOR ?? REALLY ?? CHECK THIS OUT ::

      1996 Khamoshi: The Musical - INSPIRED BY CLASSIC KOSHISH
      THIS MOVIE ALMOST FINISHED THE CAREER OF NANA PATEKAR.. SOMEHOW HE MANAGED TO SURVIVE..

      1999 Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam - SCENE TO SCENE COPIED FROM WOH SAATH DIN (AGAIN IT WAS A REMAKE OF THE CLASSIC TAMIL FILM "ANDHA ELU NATKAL")
      (TILL DATE MR. BHANSALI MAINTAINS THAT IT IS ORIGINAL CREATION.. HOW CREATIVE)

      2002 Devdas - NO NEED TO SAY..

      2005 Black - INSPIRED FROM THE LIFE OF HELEN KELLER (NUMEROUS FILMS HAS BEEN MADE BASED ON HER LIFE)

      2007 Saawariya - (Director / Producer) plot was lifted from the Tamil movie Iyarkai & Russian Short story by Fyodor Dostoevsky

      2010 Guzaarish - No need to say !!
      (Truly a Master piece piece by Bhansali)

      2011 My Friend Pinto (Producer) - Who watched this movie ??

      2012 Rowdy Rathore (Producer) - Scene to scene copy from Telugu film Vikramarkudu

      2014 Gabbar - (Producer) - Upcoming film is again a SCENE-TO-SCENE copy from Tamil Film - "Ramana" which was again remade in Telugu as "Stalin"

      By TAKING PIECES (SCENES) FROM VARIOUS MOVIES, HE HAS BECOME THE TRUE "MASTER PIECE" DIRECTOR OF BOLLYWOOD

      Delete
    3. Sanjay Leela Bhansali always concentrate more on THE LOOKS in all his films & here in Ram leela The male lead's LOOK has been copied from ROWDY RATHORE.. Looks like he created this character after watching Rowdy Rathore. ;-)

      Mr. Bhansali is a good ART DIRECTOR & he should stick to that. By mistaking his talent with Direction, he has created lot of misadventures & seems like Ram leela is no exception./

    4. Ramana is tagore in Telugu -_-. But even then SLB's movies are just make for the sake of making movies. No motive at all. Not even entertaining.

    3. Dude, along with Mayank Shekhar and Anuj Kumar,Raja Sen is one of the best film critics in India presently. I have been following these 3 for a very long time now and honestly, these guys give movies what they deserve in real. Almost 8 out of 10 times, i would have to agree with their points. All others here don't even know abcd of film criticsm and many even give scores upon box office reciepts alone. If film is hit n hyped, scire would have to be good otherwise who cares. It is becoming more n more synonymous now and has been proved time by time. Otherwise, who on the hell on earth could give movies like Chennai Express, Krrish 3 ( what a garbage) , or Ra.One and Bodyguard which barely even fulfill the criteria of being called movies, a full on rating? Taran Adarsh works for ETC- a channel in existence because of Bollywood and Star Tamashas, TOI and Hindustan Times, Mid-Day are newspapers known less for anything else and more for their filmy supplies hence are completely dependent upon stars for their sales, Koi-Moi once again is a bollywood tamasha site only, this lists goes on and on. Mayank Shekhar has been shown door many times now for his honest hence thrashing reviews- once by Hindustan times even, Raja Sen too, and Anuj Kumar is independent because he works for The Hindu- free from everything. These guys for me are most reliable when it comes to decidion making and my decision also go on n one with them as my expdrience has taught me. I decided to ignore Raja Sen's review and believe those glowing reviews rainong nothing but praises upon Krrish 3 and bang... i almost ruined my Diwali. It happens everytime, big bang movies come, now often on holidays, gets praises by money seekers and dependents, influences the average cine minds, helps in money making, 3 weeks on and everything is forgotten. It will keep on happening in future too. Poor level of film criticism id also one of many reasons why Indian cinema still is more about garbage than gems. No serious critique means nothing to prove to anybody which means.. dark future only. Aah, and by the way those who hate these 3 guys, check those movies that have been praised by them. Those are the movies you could actually see on TV and DVDs and that is the place where a film's actual life begins. And about Rajiv Masand, he is good but i have noticed he gives smashing ratings to those films whose stars give personal interviews to hom for his show n his site. So, he is good but not very reliable. Raja Sen rocks and i am damn sure now that Ram Leela is another bunder by Director cum Art Director + Cinematopgrapher Sanjay Bhansali. Well, not surprising though. It looked pathetically over the top from the trailers itself.

  10. This movie has all the passion and pangs of real love....unlike the candy floss, NRI, artificial romance shown which is supposed to be Romance and Love. A fitting tribute to Shakespere. Ranveer embodies the manliness and the intensity which is a rare combination in todays young actors. He seems on his way to superstardom. Deepika Padukone seems to be on a record breaking spree with superhits in a year. Akshay Kumar in 2007 had 4 hits in a year, I think she is going to equal that record. She looks indian, feminine, fiesty, exotic and lovely.

    4. Well, actually he is the only one who has reviewed it as it deserved. And if Raja Sen wanted money, we would have had another 5 star review here. It is just that people are not ready to accept that they are being used by these film-makers. They use our mentality to produce a high on drama and low on content piece of cinema, use warm lights and sexual references and call it art.

    1. In spite of the not-so-appealing formula music and over the top cinematography, the controversy clad #Goliyon_ki_rasleela_ram_leela was one of the most anticipated movies this year, courtesy SLB.
      The opening scene has multiple common men shooting bullets and throwing glass bottles with close precision and accuracy. The grand entry of the hero himself, taking a selfie on a motor bike would have been mesmerizing had it been 1980s. The overly tanned and oiled up body of Mr. Singh and the dhoti tied up as low as humanly possible attracts the attention of very many local women in the movie and a few watching it. Deepika is stunning as Leela, though. But the essence of the subtle yet intense romance of the great work by Shakespeare is completely lost in this very Indian rendition of the same. Mr Bhansali has reduced it to what we as an audience want, colourful dance numbers, extreme drama and a sexual reference in every other scene. Music is no charm either. With irrelevant songs at irrelevant junctions in the film, the audience is bound to get restless. There was a point in the first half when we became desperate for the intermission, it came some 20 minutes later. The second half is no better. With stretchy sequences, pure masala bollywood dialogues, more useless songs, pointless silhouettes and closeups and typical SLB elements at every step, the movie comes to a close. Supriya Pathak's, Richa Chadda's, and Barkha Bisht's performances are the only high for the movie. All in all the movie makes us feel used and violated. The makers of the film try to cash in on their name, legacy and the Indian viewers' mentality and give us a piece of cinema decorated with warm colours and excessive drama. The sad part is they will succeed in their propaganda with critics like Taran Adarsh and Mina Iyer eulogizing every frame. Sad.

  32. RAM-LEELA: Grand, vibrant & unapologetically sexy but not far from being formulaic! Ranveer & Deepika save the Day! [3.5/5]

    As told twice in the film, “Besharam, badtameez, khudgarz hota hai…par pyaar toh aisa hi hota hai (Shameless, insolent & self-centered…but then, that’s what love is all about)”, Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Magnum Opus RAM-LEELA clearly sticks to the same in its attitude and in content too. A film that is unapologetically sexy, passionate and bold in nature! A film that celebrates love and life through the most vibrant colours one can throw! A film that portrays cinema as a broad canvas to paint picturesque strokes of human emotions freely and at large.

    In his commercial adaptation of Shakespeare’s ‘Romeo & Juliet’, Sanjay Leela Bhansali creates a fictional territory somewhere near the deserted Runn of Kutch where bullets and guns are more feasible than roses. In the midst of blood & gore rivalry between two communities flourishes the love in the most violent way. Flamboyant Ram (Played by Ranveer Singh) meets even more flashy & intrepid Leela (Played by Deepika Padukone) and the physical attraction at first takes it from there as a thoroughly fiery & flaming passionate love between the two. Now we all have seen ‘Romeo & Juliet’ adaptations of all kinds ranging from the finest (Aamir-Juhi starrer QAYAMAT SE QAYAMAT TAK could be one) to the worst (this year’s ISSAQ); so if you are really asking or looking here for newness and novelty in the storyline you would be fooling yourself big time. But if you have an eagle-eye for the detailing in art & craft, this is undoubtedly the most evolved adaptation till date.

    The driving force in the film that really sets screen on fire, is the splendid chemistry between Ranveer & Deepika. When was the last time you actually noticed a Bollywood couple acting adult while making love on screen? When was the last time you could truly sense the gravity of passion between the two while enjoying a fervent kiss? And that too without having any pinch of hesitation or some kind of apprehension in the air! Ranveer rules as a typical hero material that can carry certain oomph to drive his entire female fan following crazy and also in chorus to the same, can make your heart bleed with an emotional flair in his piece of act. Deepika is nothing less than a live magic on screen. She mesmerizes you with her confident-poised look & vividly poignant portrayal of a character that is never a regular in Bollywood. Bravura performance! Supriya Pathak Kapoor as Ba is a treat to watch and the best among some interesting & competent names in the list of supporting cast i.e Richa Chaddha, Sharad Kelkar, Gulshan Devaiah (of Shaitan), Abhimanyu Singh & Jameel Khan (Gangs of Wasseypur fame).

    & how can we really not talk about the grandeur in art design, the vibrancy in costumes with joie de vivre & the superlative cinematography setting each and every frame equivalent to a painting on the wall! The teams responsible for these make sure you can’t let your eyes off the screen even for once but is it not obvious when we are for a SLB film? So, what are the things that can make you uncomfortable in a put-off situation?? Well, too much of dead predictable twists in the second half, confusing sub-plots to create melodramatic tension between the lovers, dragged duration of long 2 hours 35 min, a large amount of ‘not-needed’ gunfire acts are sure some of the demerits film holds to restrict itself from being called as a masterstroke from a class filmmaker!

    My suggestion! Watch it on the big screen to make the celebration of grandness bigger & better and for the sparkling chemistry between Ranveer & Deepika! They alone will save your money & the day. [3.5/5

    6. i just watched the movie guys... Srry to say mr. gaurav kuch din pehle tak mai sochta tha u hav good sense of movies but now.. leave it
      i would say dont waste your precious tym on this one..... the songs seems to be like "jabardasti ghusa diya ho" except one or two. Story is fully scattered. first half is simply poor, second creates little interest. But theres nothing new in movie. Movie can only entertain you in pieces. Sorry its not entertaining , its just a bad adaptation of a master piece play. Big and overplotted adaptation of romeo and Juliet. see it if you like bhansali's big SETS. But this also seems to be repitative in this movie. So you will be seeing all stuffs you have already seen in a scattered way. So basically you have nothing to watch only few scenes between ranvir and deepika grabs your attention else its a bundle.

  34. SLB has adopted the middle name "Leela" as a tribute to his mother, Leela Bhansali.

  36. In spite of the not-so-appealing formula music and over the top cinematography, this was one of the most anticipated movies this year, courtesy SLB. I saw the first show with a few friends. The starting scene has multiple common men shooting bullets and throwing glass bottles with close precision and accuracy. The grand entry of the hero himself, taking a selfie on a motor bike would have been mesmerizing had it been 1980s. The overly tanned and oiled up body of Mr. Singh and the dhotis tied up as low as humanly possible attracts the attention of very many local women in the movie and a few watching it. Deepika is stunning as Leela, though. But the essence of the subtle yet intense romance of the great work by Shakespeare is completely lost in this very Indian rendition of the same. Music is no charm either. With irrelevant songs at irrelevant junctions in the film, the audience is bound to get restless. There was a point in the first half when we became desperate for the intermission, it came some 20 minutes later. The second half is no better. With stretchy sequences, pure masala bollywood dialogues, more useless songs, pointless silhouettes and closeups and typical SLB elements at every step, the movie comes to a close. The movie makes us feel used and violated. The makers of the film try to cash in on their name, legacy and the Indian viewers' mentality and give us a piece of cinema decorated with warm colours and excessive drama. The sad part is they will succeed in their propaganda with critics like Taran Adarsh and Mina Iyer eulogizing every frame. Sad.

      Also just a suggestion, maybe this time take the help of a person who can understand english properly.
      Because every line up there is a comment on all the wrongs that this movie incorporates.

    3. a very good review ,...... its just the exact way i felt while watching the movie...... but irony is that i felt more violated when i return back home and saw taran type reviewers giving it high praises.... either they are briebed or they have no sense of movies... infact i wrote lil review/comment abt movie yesterday just below

    4. I agree with you Shivangi..!! Ram - Leela is just an updated version of the movie 'Ishaqzaade'...

    5. I do not understand how do these critics rate the movies. They never rate based on content, they are only into predicting how well the movie is going to do.

  42. Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-Leela, one of the most anticipated movies of the year releases with all its bang and reveals itself as least related to stuff for which it had been declared controversial.

    Sanjay Leela Bhansali's take on Romeo-Juliet, despite a known script, seems quite refreshing. The visuals, nobody questions, is by far Bhansali's best. Utterly flawless. You might want to compare the flawed VFX effects of movies like Krrish 3 and Ra. One and find Ram-Leela's visuals standing far ahead of them. The symmetry he puts in, the pattern he develops in every visual is like the best artist would.

    SLB's poetry, dialogues and expression are so well that you might want other directors to get training from him. The professionalism is of Hollywood standard.

    The songs are already chart-topping [Nagade Sang Dhol was No.1 on iTunes for 7 consequent weeks], and when you watch them in the movie you feel mesmerized. So well choreographed are these dances that you couldn't stop yourself from thinking of performing them on some occasion. Though a bit raunchy, ishkiyaon Dhishkyon seems more funny than vulgar. Priyanka's item number gives oomph effect.

    The strongest part of Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-Leela is the star performances. We do not doubt that Deepika Padukone, who has established herself as an equal of the Vidya Balan and Shaban Azmi only betters herself with this movie, giving her critics a yet bigger challenge. She, as Leela, is flawless. You wouldn't be watching Deepika Padukone, but Leela in the movie. Though in Cocktail, Ye Jawaani hai Deewani and Chennai Express, Deepika was the soul of the movie, here she has to share it with Ranveer Singh who acts equally well. This is his best performance so far. In fact, this is the best performance of the year by a male actor. Richa Chada is shockingly real as Leela's sister-in-law and Supriya Pathak, though sounds a bit like Hansa, is exhilarating and fear-inducing. Every dialogue she delivers is pitch perfect.

    The perfection that Bhansali has expressed in all the aforementioned topics gets polluted by the flawed script. Though in the first half you do not notice how time passes with the songs, acting and the chemistry setting fire to the screen, the second half takes a U-turn. The second half begins with impracticality, which moves on to deal with various serious topics, which is exceptional to a love story. What becomes a problem here is the absence of effective execution of these scenes. The sub-plots are in abundance but all last for so less time that the tears of Leela and Ram do not reflect on the audience's eyes. Before the audience could feel the pain, the scene changes.
    The ending becomes more like a fairy tale which ruins all the realistic happenings of the movie.

    Despite its flaw, Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-Leela stands as WORTH WATCHING. One must definitely watch this class-and-mass movie for entertainment, visuals, star performances, songs, and by far the best adaptation of Romeo and Juliet by Bollywood.
    Go fall in love with Ram-Leela!

    [3.5/5]

  45. ‘Sanjay Leela Bhansali’ does it big every time. Beautiful sets and large crew have been common characters in his movies. The film maker’s approach to cinema has been different all through these years. And now, he is up with the most anticipated (or should I say controversial) movie of the season ‘Goliyon Ki Rasleela Ram-Leela’ inspired by William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet.

    Alike the Romeo and Juliet, ‘Goliyon Ki Rasleela Ram-Leela’ tells you the story of two families at war. Set in backdrop of Gujarat, the film focuses on the two main characters Ram (Ranveer Singh) and Leela (Deepika Padukone) who fall for each other. The story takes a turn when Ram and Leela elope from the town and get married. There awaits a storm back in the town for both of them. What’s next?




    Alike Bhansali’s most of the films, ‘Goliyon Ki Rasleela Ram-Leela’ also is a musical drama. You get the feeling that a story is being narrated to you in such a magnificent way with a wonderful picturisation. The film makers have worked on the characters and the dialogues in ‘gujarati’ just fit in the situation every time. Though, the film lacks the momentum in the first half and could have been easily cut short by 20 minutes. The songs might look worthy to you in the beginning but mind you there are too much of them to bear.

    Ranveer Singh is excellent. You would love his character of Ram and especially his dialogue delivery. He stands a good chance to be nominated for the best actor this year. Deepika Padukone supports him equally well. She has improved as an actor since her first film. Supriya Pathak, Richa Chadha and Gulshan Devaiah are good.

    Overall, this ‘Goliyon Ki Rasleela Ram-Leela’ is a decent watch for this weekend. It is typical Bhansali-type with a sizzling chemistry between Ranveer and Deeepika, the two big usp’s of the film.


    Rating- 3/5
