Sanjay Leela Bhansali impresses with his direction once again as Ranveer looks the part as the hot blooded alpha male Bajira, while Deepika as Mastani and Priyanka as Kashibai. The trailer is powerful, hypnotic, captivating and leaves you speachless and wanting more. The trailer begins with a slow motion shot of Ranveer Singh dressed as the famed Maratha warrior Bajirao riding a galloping horse with Mastani arriving on her horse and overtaking him dramatically. Cut to the next scene, one sees Priyanka Chopra looking heavenly in the nine-yard waving the victory flag as Bhansali wastes no time in introducing his lead characters.
The trailer is skillfully paced with sword fighting scenes, an intimate encounter between Priyanka and Ranveer and battlefield shots.
What deserves a special mention is the the war sequences. Scores of warriors in action along with long distant shots of horses and elephants as were used in the days of yore make for a compelling cinematic watch. The scene that stays in mind is the one where Ranveer jumps high up in the air to reach the top of an elephant to slay his enemy.
