World's classic love stories Romeo-Juliet, Laila-Majnu, Heer-Ranjha, Shirin-Farhad, set in different cultures have one thing in common - the strong will to unite and remain together against all odds. Sanjay Leela Bhansali's latest creation Ram Leela is nothing you haven't seen or heard already, it is the old Romeo-Juliet romance, reworked and set against the backdrop of guns and vengeance. But this one will hit you right in the heart.

Featuring Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone in the leads, Ram Leela is a high-voltage romantic drama, that will renew your faith in love. Cloaked in the violent love story, Ram Leela is a message that could not have been better timed.

Story
Hatred is the dominant emotion in this part of the world and street violence is always only a gunshot away. The story of Ram Leela revolves around two major characters - Ram (Ranveer Singh), the local village Romeo, who 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 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?

Bhansali - The Maverick Is Back!
Ram Leela is yet another SLB creation, replete with opulence and grandeur. In Ram Leela, the way Sanjay Leela Bhansali makes his characters react to each other and to the situations unfolding around them is what keeps you hooked. You get the feeling that he is losing his grip towards the end, but he comes right back and makes up for it. The filmmaker blends such moments of free-flowing sensitivity with the darker, murkier reality of blazing guns and furtive fornication without letting the sleaze touch the purity of the central romance.

What's Striking?
The movie Ram Leela is a visual masterpiece with a fresh treatment of a tragic love story. The film is paced very well due the placement of its fantastic musical numbers and is even supported by its fantastic visual variety. The strength of the film also comes from the gritty performances of its lead cast. The film pleases the eye and provides more than adequate satisfaction for those highly anticipating it.

Performances
All the characters are well-etched and leave an impression on the viewer's mind. Ranveer Singh is dynamic and delivers an award-winning performance. Deepika Padukone is simply fantastic. Playing the part of a spirited gun-toting girl, she is not the regular timid, decorous, withdrawn Hindi film heroine. She makes a towering impact every time she appears on screen.

Verdict
Bhansali creates a web of romance, hooliganism and rivalry, all woven beautifully and with great elan. Ram Leela is visually extravagant, sporting an amazing variety of colours, lighting and visual flair, showing off breathtaking and intricate dance sequences and exuding catchy and melodic music. For all its hype, grandeur, money, blood, sweat, music, tragedy, Ram Leela is a film that will be cherished forever in the history of Bollywood.
