Movie Review: Goliyon Ki Rasleela Ram Leela (2013)
The movie Ram Leela revolves around two major characters – Ram (Ranveer Singh), the local village Romeo, is a colourful, charming yet dramatic vagabond, and Leela (Deepika Padukone) an unbridled and passionate village Juliet. The only thing in common between these two strangers is their families’ hatred for each other.
The two communities have been sworn enemies since the past 500 years and their own kin falling in love with each other is worse than any storm that could have ever come. When Ram and Leela see each other for the first time, their worlds collide, wars are fought and destinies are written in blood, forever.
What will happen when they declare their love to the world? Will their families relent or will Ram and Leela carve their own destiny?
Ram Leela is yet another SLB creation, replete with opulence and grandeur. The film is visually extravagant, sporting an amazing variety of colours, lighting and visual flair, showing off breathtaking and intricate dance sequences and exuding catchy, melodic music. For all its hype, grandeur, money, blood, sweat, music, tragedy, Ram Leela is definitely worth a watch.
