I’m told #padmaavat is quite the extravagant spectacle. And a solid comeback for #sanjay leela bhansali after all the misery. More power to him. Review coming up in a bit @filmfare. Three cheers — J (@jiteshpillaai) January 23, 2018
#Padmaavat (Tamil dubbed version) - Interval - @deepikapadukone & @shahidkapoor have an equal share of decent roles. On the other hand, @RanveerOfficial's character & performance is a scream. @Bhansali_Prod @Viacom18Movies @viacom18 @filmpadmaavat @TSeries

#Padmaavat (Tamil dubbed version) - Interval - Bhansali strikes with a solid direction of an hard historical script. Music and visuals are topical too. Rituals slow down the pace then and there. 'Good' so far. @deepikapadukone @shahidkapoor @RanveerOfficial @filmpadmaavat (2/2) — Review Ram (@MovieReviewRam) January 23, 2018
#Padmaavat - Interval - Beautiful writing by Bhansali, he stands out with a splendid paper work. Eagerly waiting for the 2nd half, @deepikapadukone as the mighty queen 'Padmavati' in action mode. @filmpadmaavat

Early reviews for Padmaavat had this to say: Urmimala Banerjee wrote for Bollywood Life: "The film starts off like a fairytale. Every frame is exquisite and the impact on 3D is manifold. We are introduced to the brave and stunning Padmavati of Singhal. There are quite a few exquisite frames. The first half belongs to Ranveer Singh. From his introductory scene to the one where he hunts down the head of Mongol warlord, Singh is in top form. Deepika looks stunning and Shahid lives up to the character of the proud Rajput. Cinematography by Sudeep Chatterjee is mind-blowing and the 'Ghoomar' song is a visual delight."
Mayur Sanap from The Deccan Chronicle points out the film's flaws too, writing: "Sanjay Leela Bhansali makes his most courageous film yet, but sadly the results are not very impressive. The film that is a war epic, love story, and costume drama, all in one, is bogged down by mediocre execution. Much will be said about the film's daunting length, and the truth is, it could have been shorter. It's the kind of film that tries too hard to get your attention in the runtime of almost three hours."
Umair Sandhu from The Hans India states: "On the whole, Padmaavat is a cinematic gem that you just cannot miss. Tremendous performances, deft direction, power-packed screenwriting and dialogue, melodious soundtrack and of course, the lavish mounting — this film has it all. Strongly recommended!"
