Padmavati Movie Review: Brief story
Alauddin Khilji, the Turko-Afghan Muslim, was ruler of Delhi Sultanate. In 1303, he attacked Chittor in Rajputana and laid siege to the fort arguably to get Rani Padmini. Padmavati goes by the historical facts presented by the Sufi poet. The siege lasted may days resulting in Rajput warriors losing patience to stay back in the fort. They decide to go out and attack the enemy. The objective is to kill as many enemies as possible before falling down. In the fort, Rani Padmini decides to do jauhar (self-immolation) with other Rajput women to avoid being captured by the Muslim ruler. They performed jauhar to protect their honor.
Padmavati Movie Controversy
Dream love scene between Khilji and Padmini: Karni Sena of Rajasthan objected to a dream scene showing Khilji and Padmini in objectionable positions but this objection is ruled out by the filmmaker saying that no such scene exists in the movie.
Another objection was regarding the song “Ghoomar”. It is said that the Rani was shown dancing before public but the reality is just opposite. Rani Padmini danced for her husband and only before her husband. Other viewers in the hall were palace women.
Some people say that the film glorifies Alauddin Khilji. He was ruler of Delhi from 19 July 1206 to 4 January 1316. He’s seen in bad light as he subjugated Hindu kingdoms of Gujrat and present Rajasthan. But the filmmaker says that there is no glorification of Khilji in the movie. There is not a single shot in which Rani Padmini is shown with Khilji.
What filmmaker and actors have to say about the padmavati full movie?
Ranveer Singh is playing the negative character of Alauddin Khilji hence there is no question of glorifying khilji. Filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali invited senior journalists for special screening so that they can put the facts before public and calm the agitated minds.
