Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s movies are special stuff. The man, known for completely infusing his mind, body and soul for making his films, has done just that and perhaps some more with his latest offering ‘Bajirao Mastani.’ Starring bright talents Ranveer Singh, Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra, SLB takes you on yet another historic sojourn, turning pages of an era, a love story, a saga, not many know much about.
Bajirao Mastani talks love in varied contexts, also shedding light on many other inspiring life-truths.
Love is Religion in itself
As the world continues to debate on what religion should exactly be, Bajirao and Mastani had an answer ready in the 18th century itself – “Love is above all religion as love is a religion in itself.”
Religion is not Greater than Love
If at all there is a morale in the Bajirao-Mastani saga, it is that religion should not be made to become greater than human beings or love itself.
Love is a Unifying Factor
Love stories such as Bajirao Mastani heavily concentrate energies on spreading the message that wars can only divide and let suffer, whereas love can unify and let conquer.
Two Women in Love can be Accepting of Each Other
Bajirao was lucky to have been passionately loved by two women at the same time – Mastani (his lover) and Kashibai (his wife). The story shows the bonding of the two most important women in his life, and what is note-worthy is that they accepted each other’s presence is ‘their’ man life.
In Matters of the Heart, Mind cannot Win
Bajirao Mastani essentially is a story showcasing love’s triumph against all odds – even the mind. While Bajirao’s mind, family and courtmen asked him to give up on his love for Mastani, he only let his heart dictate the terms.
A Woman’s Bravura is As Applause-worthy as a Man’s
Mastani was more than just a woman high on love. She was a brave, strong-willed woman who went after what she wanted and pursued her goals, and was applauded for it!
Coyness is a Sign of Dignity
Old-world charm dictates that coyness of a woman was a sign of her dignity. Even today, the same principle should apply!
