Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh film is just a costume drama
Indian Express
On an overall basis, ‘Bajirao Mastani’ is a fine piece of classic cinema, which gets mildly diluted, due to its less appealing climax. Nevertheless, the movie is a cinematic experience as there are plenty of good reasons for you to not miss this great film as they don’t make these kind of movies anymore.
Cine Markets
Because in Bajirao Mastani, Bhansali has dared greatly, and succeeded

On the whole, BAJIRAO MASTANI 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!

Visual masterpiece with stellar performances

Watch this film for its larger-than-life cinematic experience, and of course, Ranveer Singh.
Bajirao Mastani is for those that think history is boring. There isn't a dull moment in this colourful and dramatic film that embraces excess with unabashed abandon.

To sum up Bajirao Mastani is the film it was touted to be. It’s essentially celluloid spectacle, where together, Bhansali, Singh, Padukone and Chopra cast a spell on you. And the end result is sheer magic
