Another popular critic Umair Sandhu said: “Bhansali makes sure the actors get major acting opportunities this time. Ranveer Singh is stupendous and clearly in top form.The effortlessness with which he gets into the skin of the character is noteworthy. On the whole, Padmaavat is a cinematic gem that you just cannot miss. Tremendous performances, deft direction, power-packed screenwriting and dialogue, melodious soundtrack and of course, the lavish mounting — this film has it all. Strongly recommended!”
On the other hand, Rajput Karni Sena has decided a nationwide bandh on the release date of the film. Directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali, Padmaavat is slated to release on January 25. Earlier, it was going to clash with Akshay Kumar’s Pad Man. But now the actor has pushed his film to February 9, making Padmaavat a big solo release.

The violence and protests against #padmavat is so saddening especially after having watched before its release and more so after all the changes that #SanjayLeelaBhansali has done. I would call #Padmaavat the real #beautywithbrain. Hope good sense prevails!

Watched #Padmaavat at a screening. Not qualified to debate over the debate, but as cinema,it’s riveting storytelling and visual delight. @shahidkapoor is understated good, @deepikapadukone’s eyes speak. @RanveerOfficial OWNS the film. And @jimSarbh is a surprise bundle of acting!

Saw Padmaavat. The film is visually stunning & has great performances. It is more about Khilji, his sexuality & his obsessions. Celebrates the moral courage and strength of character of Rajputs. Karni sena should be proud of the movie 🙂
