Bajirao Mastani

Build up:
Love story of Peshwa Baji Rao of the Maratha empire with Mastani, and their trial by fire in course of the love saga. Bajirao(Ranveer Singh), Deepika Padukone(Mastani), Priyanka Chopra(Kashi) and Tanvi Azmi(Maa Sahib), make the main cast.

What we see:

  • Visit to history at the time of the Maratha empire with Baji Rao being near to invincible 
  • Bajirao is a fearless warrior and is very rational about his decisions
  • Extends help to Bundelkhand on the request of valiant princess (Mastani) - pretty and tough
  • Follows him back to Pune, for love and as tradition of Bundelkhand, she is married to him
  • Once she reaches Pune, she is targetted at various instances and comes out victorious, as love is her only motivation
  • Kashi on the other hand believes that her beloved husband is in love with another woman when she herself views it, and takes her time to digest it
What I like:
  • The grandeur of the sets of the palace, the war scenes
  • All 3 angles of the love triangle hold their fort with grace and strong performances
  • Dialogues by Ranveer and Deepika
What i didnt like:
  • not much but the conspiracy angle got dragged a lil too far
Rating: 3.5/5
