MOVIE REVIEW ...

THREE THINGS THE MOVIE HAS GOING FOR IT ...

#1. The Cast: 

Salman Khan, at 49, couldn't have looked better. He carries himself well and manages to portray a "street-side actor" character with elegance, at no point looking "too old to be doing that". No, he didn't give any shirtless scenes, even though he does rip off the sleeves when removing the shirt would have made more sense.

Sonam Kapoor has never looked this stunning, has never acted this well and has totally owned the role. She looks regal in her princess role that appear to be inspired from India's famous queen, Maharani Gayatri Devi - the look, the hair-do, the sarees, the suits, the necklaces.

Talking of their chemistry- Sonam Kapoor, at 30, looked vibrant and youthful, but her chemistry with Salman is convincing despite the almost 20 years difference. You feel the love. And you know why.

Anupam Kher, Neil Nitin Mukesh, Swara Bhaskar- have all done well, looked good.

#2. The Sheer Beauty-

Every shot in the movie is "stare-worthy". The marigold flowers, the vibrantly colored attires to match the fresh flowers, the regal outfits, the sets, the locations, the palatial panoramas - you want to miss nothing.

#3. The Songs-

The songs, composed by Himesh Reshammiya, are melodious. The music rights was sold to T-Series at a whopping 17 crores, making it the biggest music deal in the industry to date. according to koimoi.com. 

WHERE IT FAILS ...

1. There is nothing impressive, not original about the plot.

2. The movie presents beautiful aspects from multiple cultures, Gujarati, Rajasthani and parts of U.P, while packaging it as one. It fails to make it educational about one given culture.

We Say:

This Diwali release was obviously made with the goal of providing a family entertainment to the audience. The heavy dosage of rich culture and tradition, combined with message of family harmony and loyalty plays well with that goal. I for one am a sucker for movies that glorify any and every aspect of our extremely colorful cultural heritage, even when presented in a hop-notch manner, crossing cultural boundaries. Adding to the family-viewing, there are no sexually-charged-and titillating song-dance sequence. This is a must watch family movie.

WHAT OTHERS ARE TALKING ABOUT...

The Los Angeles Times, while calling the movie "loosely based on the classic novel "The Prisoner of Zenda" , reported that it pulled in $2.8 million in its first four days on 287 screens, landing the film at No. 8 on the weekend box office — right between the American studio hits "Bridge of Spies" and "Hotel Transylvania 2." It also reports that the weekend global collection for the movie was $36 million globally, the biggest worldwide opening for any Bollywood film in history. 

As per the film's Facebook page, the movie has raked in 250 Crore rupees in the first four days of its release. 

Shubhra Gupta of Indian Express gave the film a low rating of 1.5/5 stars, saying that it is a re-imagining of Ramayan and its million stories and " an out-dated, overblown rehash of the director's previous films ", while Rohit Vats of Hindustan Times gave the film only 2/5 stars, calling it "as a film straight out of the '80s" rehashing the director's same formula but calling Salman Khan " quite likeable ".
