Critics Review/Rating

Times Of India (TOI):

Straight away, Bajirao Mastani is Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s most gorgeous – and most political – movie. Peshwa Bajirao (Ranveer) stretches the Maratha empire across 18th century India, fighting Mughals and rivals for Chhattrapati Shahu (Mahesh)…

Mid-Day:

The film begins with an unusually long disclaimer claiming that it is more the filmmakers’ vision than a true account of a historical episode. In an obvious bid to fob off the protesters questioning the authenticity of the narration…

Hindustan Times (HT):

“Duniya ka har dharm mohabbat sikhata hai, Mohabbat ka koi dharm nahi hota. Mohabbat khud hi dharm hai” (All religions teach love, love has no religion and it is a religion in itself) – that is what Sanjay Leela Bhansali aims to preach…

Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Bajirao Mastani is in essence the story of Bajirao and Mastani. The director’s ode to undying love does make you pine for that kind of an extraordinary story, which can show the thumb to the shackles of worldly trivialities…

Rediff:

‘This is a giant film, a magnum opus drunk on its own magnum-ity, and it is perfectly clear early on, as the narrative races out the gate and gauntlets are flung up in the air and shot through with arrows, that a film like this can only work as opera,’ says Raja Sen…

Glamsham:

Two years ago, in November 2013, to be precise, Sanjay Leela Bhansali had Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone in Goliyon Ki Raasleela: Ram Leela. There was nothing wrong with the lead pair; there was no script! In Bajirao Mastani, Bhansali gets the same lead pair to create magic on screen…
