Ratings:3/5 Review By:Rajeev Masand Site:CNN IBN
This sweeping period piece, set in the early 18th century, focuses on a forbidden romance that consumed Bajirao Ballal Bhat, a brave general credited with expanding the Maratha Empire and winning every one of the 41 battles he fought. But the film also suffers from a condition one might describe as ‘Bhansali-it is’ – the tendency to be melodramatic, over-long, and highly indulgent. Ultimately you can’t help being overwhelmed by Sudeep Chatterjee’s eye-watering frames, and the elegant production design. Bhansali delivers a film that’s artistic but exhausting. I’m going with three out of five.

Fit BAJIRAO MASTANI into your agenda of films to watch this weekend. Bhansali could've easily opted for a modern-day love story, but the fact that he chose to make a historical and one that keeps you hooked for varied reasons deserves applause and encouragement from cineastes. Sure, it's a damn good looking film, but, most importantly, it has soul too. On the whole, BAJIRAO MASTANI is a cinematic gem that you just cannot miss. Tremendous performances, deft direction, power-packed screenwriting and dialogue, melodious soundtrack and of course, the lavish mounting -- this film has it all. Strongly recommended!

On the whole, Bajirao Mastani is a visually delightful entertainer and a cinematic masterpiece. Unfortunately, it holds more appeal for the classes and multiplex audiences and less for the masses. This will reflect adversely in its commercial report card because a film with an investment of the kind made in this project needed to be universally appealing, nothing less than that.In commercial terms, however, its very high cost on the one hand and an ordinary initial on the other, coupled with the fact that it has released in direct opposition of Dilwale, will not see it making profits. Rather, this masterpiece could, quite unfortunately and tragically, even entail losses to the persons concerned.

Bhansali, for what it's worth, has gone all out with this one. He's made warrior girls play the banjo; he's made Old Spice salesmen look old; he's created outrageous, mostly fountain-based subtext about husbands and wives getting each other wet; and he's even saluted world cinema and raised a few red lanterns.If only he had more to say than the fact that he loves Mughal-e-Azam.

Straight away, Bajirao Mastani is Sanjay Leela Bhansali's most gorgeous - and most political - movie. Bajirao-Mastani resembles Jodhaa-Akbar with teeth that bite, Mughal-e-Azam with shades of philosophical grey. It rediscovers roots to Maratha pride - and bravely confronts one of India's most crucial questions now. Quickly 'chala' to the biggest screen you can find.

Sanjay Leela Bhansali has cleverly picked up some Marathi speaking actors as supporting cast, which includes Tanvi Azmi (brilliant as Bajirao's mother), Mahesh Manjrekar as King Shahu, Milind Soman as Bajirao's friend and Vaibbhav Tatwawdi as his brother, Chimaji. Watch this film for its larger-than-life cinematic experience, and of course, Ranveer Singh.

Bajirao Mastani is a lengthy film that moves at a snail’s pace, in signature Bhansali style. The lyrical dialogues and literary brilliance of the dialogues bog the story down with overindulgence instead of striking the audience in awe of the grandeur at show. If you appreciate Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s opulence and grandeur, this won’t disappoint. It can be a good one-time watch, for Deepika’s performance, if not anything else.

Ratings:1.5/5 Review By:Shubhra Gupta Site:Indian Express
But soon enough, you tire of all the showiness. The grandiosity wears off. You long for a genuinely moving, exciting story, featuring all these beautiful people, all actors able to pull off characters, but buried under their mounds of clothes, mouthing dialogue. ‘Bajirao Mastani’ had the potential to be a terrific historical. What it ends up being is a costume drama: too many costumes, too much revved-up, empty drama, and too little story.

Ratings:3/5 Review By:Saibal ChaterjeeSite:NDTV
Despite its failings, Bajirao Mastani is the work of a director who never shies away from going the whole hog. Even when Bhansali isn't in full flight, he still manages to soar well above the mundane. Bajirao Mastani is for those that think history is boring. There isn't a dull moment in this colourful and dramatic film that embraces excess with unabashed abandon.

Ratings:3.5/5 Review By:Ananya Bhattacharya Site:India Today
Bajirao Mastani doesn't leave much room for complaint. The story sucks you in from the first frame, and stays that way till the interval. Post that, the pace slackens here and there, but overall, it is a delight.In all, Bajirao Mastani is an experience. And one that needs to be savoured in a theatre.

Watch it if you want to restore your faith in love stories.Forget history, this film is full of chemistry that is so pure that it is heart-warming to experience it. For all its grandeur and Bhansali’s years of dedication, the film is a sure a one-time watch.

Ratings:2.5/5 Review By:Manjusha Radhakrishnan Site:GulfNews
Also the film falls short on several accounts. First of all, it seems confused whether it should be a romance or historic film, swerving between Bajirao wanting to be the famous warrior and the eternal lover. Second, is its pace. The film hardly moves in the first hour or so, picking up speed only after the intermission – in fact it seems a little rushed in the second half. Third, the visual effects, though plenty, lack the punch of say, even, a Bahubali. Fourth, the music by Bhansali can at best be described as “sweet” and not something that anyone would listen to very often, and is a disappointment compared to that from his Devdas, Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam or Ram-Leela.

  1. The opening of the movie was great..good performance by all the actors...however there is nothing new to offer... the story is similar to ramleela..only thing, this time the tension is within the family... if this film was released before bahubali..it would have been great...sets of the movie is great...the problem is..there is no war in a warrior story..

  14. BAJIRAO MASTANI:
    In the League of Potential Classics! [4/5]

    In times of the shorter, darker and more realistic indie films, Sanjay Leela Bhansali shows the guts to bless Indian screens with the legacy that believed in telling stories from the historical past in the most decorous manner. Classics are made like that only. And to the expectations, Bhansali doesn’t falter in any of the art-forms used while making this motion-picture. Magnum-opus BAJIRAO MASTANI is mesmeric in every frame, mind-blowing in every performance and miraculously magical in depicting Bhansali’s perfectly designed yet tortured world of love chained in pain, angst and grief.

    The great Maratha Warrior Peshwa Bajirao [Ranveer Singh] is rising as an invincible threat to the Mughal Empire and its supporting forces. He’s a rare and unbeatable combination of power, passion and mental strength. In his mission to build ‘Akhand Bharat’, he lends his help to his neighboring state Bundelkhand and the victory brings him close to the daughter of its king Chhatrasal. Fearless Mastani [Deepika Padukone] being half-Rajput, half-Muslim girl, is now destined to face the extreme dislike, heavy rejections and sharp protests from everyone around Peshwa. If Bajirao’s first wife Kashibai [Priyanka Chopra] uses her silence against the injustice to her love and loyalty, the religious bodies declare it in full vocal. Bajirao may have the honor to never taste a defeat in any of the battles he appears in but this conflict between love, loyalty, religion and political establishments will definitely put him on the spot. Despite being a 3-century old political love-story, BAJIRAO MASTANI speaks on various grounds that are still much in fashion. In one of the few ‘in your face’ scenes, Mastani encounters one religion-protector with, “religions might have chosen one particular color dedicated to represent them. But the colors never go for any religion.” The social elimination of second marriage and love outside marriage gets thrashed heartlessly despite the Peshwa himself being in it.

    With BAJIRAO MASTANI, Sanjay Leela Bhansali pays his homage to MUGHAL-E-AZAM and it shows upfront. The plot-development itself vouches for the same. Film’s extremely melodic numbers establish Bhansali’s another talent to look for [He’s the sole composer for the film]. The canvas of the film is richly done in visual effects, especially the battle-sequences and it succeeds in creating the era, setting and sight the story finds its root in. The excellence in camerawork, art-design and costumes make every frame a reason to celebrate the spirit of cinema.

    On the performances, BAJIRAO MASTANI wholly rests and rises on Ranveer Singh’s prolific shoulders. Who can think of a regular looking guy in BAND BAAJA BARAAT taking on one of the most powerful characters in Indian history? And with such finesse? He is graceful, glorious and gifted. Deepika is another talent who’s constantly making fresh impressions with one electrifying performance after other. Her Mastani is tremendously bold, brave and bright. As devoted wife with pastoral looks and approach, Priyanka Chopra is in her finest form. Though her character-graph doesn’t allow her to go overboard beyond a point, she excels in her restricted skin. Tanvi Azmi as the mother and Milind Soman in a supporting role manage to hold your attention and admiration.

    At the end, BAJIRAO MASTANI is not a classic. Not now. May be after a decade but not yet. It is 2 hr 38 min long. Most of us will find it dragged. Most of us will consider it outdated. But it successfully holds the fort of being in the league of films that have plenty potential to be referred as a ‘classic’. [4/5]

  23. It was such a bore. I couldn't even connect to the characters and feel or root for them. SLB's Ram Leela was way better and entertaining. There is nothing in bajirao. It's like a body without a soul. Boring songs and mediocre music except deewani mastani. I wanted to leave the theater thrice but still hung on. Last 20/30 minutes were the worst part of the movie.
