Padmavati is touted to be the most expensive Hindi film. The stakes are high. I wouldn’t know what to say about the commerce and what the returns will be but one thing that I can say with confidence is that turning the film into a 3D version as well is a good idea.
I have just seen the 3D promo armed with my 3D glasses on critical eyes. It’s an exhilarating experience with the glorious colours unleashing magic in the battlefield of mind caught between the classic warriors baying for blood.
The war sequences look spectacular in 3D and the impact is truly grand. Padmavati is a perfectly Indian film for being showcased in 3D as it’s as traditional as it gets. The dresses, the costumes, the jewellery, the music, the dances…it’s representative of Indian culture and history. Deepika Padukone, Shahid Kapoor and Ranveer Singh are all set to be a part of the History of Indian cinema.
Prime Focus has done a fine job in delivering a world class 3D experience as far as the promo goes. Let’s wait for the experience of the entire film. I hope it will live up to the promise of the Spectacle that Padmavati is being billed as.
