“Bajirao ne Mastani se mohabbat ki hai, aaiyashi nahi…” are the only words that are spoken in the 3-minute long teaser of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Bajirao Mastani. Revealed a while back, the teaser shows Ranveer Singh as the Maratha Peshwa Bajirao, Deepika Padukone as his second wife Mastani, and Priyanka Chopra as Bajirao’s first wife Kashibai. With its royal canvas, Bhansali’s Bajirao Mastani teaser is a burst of colours and action reminiscent of the 18th century.
If Bajirao is deft with his sword on the battlefield, his wife Mastani is no less. A sword-wielding Deepika, with a child in her arms, is among the frames that stay on in one’s mind long after the teaser is over. A medley of colours and action sequences, the teaser doesn’t really give out much of the plot or the story than what is already known to the public. And if one is clued in into the way Bhansali functions, this is but a much-thought-about move. After all, the director made sure Ranveer Singh put on a hat for nine months so as to not give out his look for the film.
The background music gels well with the visuals – both are grand. The first look of Bajirao Mastani was released yesterday (July 15), and ever since, Deepika, Ranveer and Priyanka fans have been waiting with bated breath for the teaser. And now that the teaser is out, December 18 is all that’s on the trio’s fans’ minds.
