Its time to sit back and enjoy the appreciation for the makers of Ram-Leela
Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone, is Bhansali’s interpretation of William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet. Prior to its release Friday, it was caught in legal hassles over the title. However, if trade experts are to be believed, the movie has garnered over Rs.16 crore on its opening day. And filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali is heartened by the opening day response to his latest release Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-Leela, which has reportedly drawn audiences in big numbers to theatres. Relieved and exuberant, Bhansali said: “I haven’t received so many congratulations in a while. Everybody is saying this is the kind of cinema they like to see me make. It’s a great feeling when your hard work pays off.”
Trade analyst Taran Adarsh said, “Ram-Leela has had an outstanding opening at both multiplexes and single screens. Saturday and Sunday will see huge collections. I also expect the film to open big overseas.” The movie is said to have Bhansali’s trademark touch of capturing culture and traditions vividly. Bihar exhibitor Roshan Singh said: “Sanjay Leela Bhansali is the hero of Ram-Leela. Every frame has his stamp. People are coming in to see what Bhansali has done.”
One question we can’t help the filmmaker – When and where’s the party Mr Bhansali?
