People have appreciated the performances of the lead cast and the historical portrayals.
Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s historical thriller Padmaavat, that had generated unprecedented controversy and violence before its release (yesterday) has been received very well by audiences in Gurgaon.
People are all praises for the intense performances of the lead cast. “The movie is fabulous. Ranveer Singh has played his negative character to the hilt. I found nothing objectionable or controversial in this movie. The scale and nature of violence that we witnessed before its release is completely uncalled for,” said Rajshri Ranganathan, a resident of Sector 45.
Adding to this, Arjun Shokeen said. “The historical aspects of the movie are very convincing and captivating. Like always, Bhansali has made yet another masterpiece.”
Although the management of cinema halls refused to comment on the controversies that have surrounded this movie they do say that the night shows have been houseful. The footfall during the day is relatively scanty.
Given the positive reviews from the first set of audiences, it definitely seems that for now people are going to turn a deaf ear to the protestors and throng to the movie halls.
