4.5 Excellent


A Poetry in motion is what Saawariya is.A misunderstood masterpiece. First of all simply awsome and vibrant performance by Ranbir Raj Kapoor and Rani Mukherjee, Sonam can be worked upon too.The film is simple love story told very simply - without much jhintak masalas and spoofs being added.Sanjay Leela Bhansali undoubtedly proved again why he is a master and India's best director currently. Fils are all about imagination only, and imagination are bigger. Now certain people are not able to believe in this classical and magnum imagination because they cannot imagine this themselves.This is something big and never imagined.Also the Rain and Snowfall aspect i would like to say geographically first it rains and then it snows.And about a uneducative disbelief that snow occurs where mountains are, one must go back to there geography books and read about cities like Moscow and Newyork where there are no mountains but snowfall occurs.Yes the film does have tribute to RK's Shree 420 and Rishi Kapoor's Karz but people finding challiya in it is quite un understood - Go and watch Challiya first Lolz.
All the aspects of filmmaking are mastered to perfection in this film be it art or international standards of cinematography and editing.Music is simply outstanding and background score - well no one can achieve such impact except MONTY and SLB.
So all time Masala film lovers you may not find your day here but for a true film lover its a delight to watch out for.Also this is not SLB'S best till date but it would be treated as a book on "how to make great film ever".
When everything from Screenplay to Cinematography to Direction to Background Score is a masterstroke, how can i say it's not a good film.Indeed a masterpiece.
A note for Taran Adarsh - Sir you are a calculative reviewers in my eyes, you rate film on the basis of Masala Content in it and the business.Okay it is beileivable that u may say about content in the film but why business despite the fact it opened to a thunderouys response.Get a Life man.

Finally, Saawariya is not Sanjay Leela Bhansali's best till date but he completely outshines in terms of cinema aesthetic and value.Also as said by a great film critic you will find hard to find a director of caliber of Sanjay Leela Bhansali who can acieve such cinematic vibrance and perfection.
