Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-Leela - Movie Review

The movie appears to be a product of what you get out of a mixture of the movies Josh – Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam and Ishakzaade. There is nothing vulgar in the movie that is talked about so much except the Ranvir-Deepika kissing scenes and couple of dialogues already aired in movie trailers. There is not even 1% vulgarity of Grand Masti. The movie shows a 500 year old traditional rivalry between Sanera and Rajadi clans in Gujrat. Deepika( Leela) belongs to Sanera clan and Ranvir( Ram) belongs to the Rajadi clan. Their names Ram and Leela really had nothing to do with controversy created by religious groups and has relevance only to the fact that their love story ends in a tragedy on the last day of Ram Leela when the effigy of Raavana is burnt and thereafter bringing the two rival groups together. Else their names did not carry much significance. While the movie is directed very well and keeps you entertained, the songs in first half are too many and you may find it boring. Priyanka Chopra’s song does add value to the movie and also the colourful dresses worn by Deepika and other characters throughout the movie. There are few moments in the movie that will not convince you:

1) Deepika kissing Ranvir publicly during their first meet and in the process leaves a mark of gulal on Ranvir’s lips – too fast for a first meet during Holi and to fall in love

2) Ranvir’s regular casual meetings in Deepika’s home which is in his rival area

3) Ranvir’s change of character after being crowned as the Don of Rajadi clan. He used to be a peacemaker earlier

4) Deepika is made the leader of Sanera clan and she gets into the character overnight

5) Deepika though in pain and hurt, dances and sings the song “Nagade sang dhol baaje” If you did not like “Ishakzaade”, then you could avoid this movie as there is not much difference in the storyline but lot of drama in Sanjay Leela Bhansali style. Overall, movie is okay and a one time watch. All actors have done a fabulous job playing their respective characters especially Ranvir, Deepika and Supriya Pathak.
