Sanjay Leela Bhansali's latest release Ram Leela, that features Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone in the leads, is an adaptation of Shakespeare's novel 'Romeo and Juliet'. Ram Leela is a high-voltage romantic drama, set against the backdrop of guns and vengeance. This is one of the most-awaited movies of the year.
The movie Ram Leela have received mixed response from
both the audience and film critics. Most of the critics have been
praising Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone's chemistry in the
film, while a few others are going gaga over the fantastic musical

'Ram-Leela' creates a couple that ignites the screen, and most
