A relentlessly opulent, magnificently-mounted paean to Rajput ‘aan baan shaan’

Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Boring Film Doesn't Do Justice To Deepika Padukone
Raja Sen, NDTV
This is a film so inured in irradiance and so steeped in splendor you will come away from the experience exhilarated and satiated.
Subhash K Jha, Khaleej Times
The story of a beautiful, faithful queen and a lustful invader who will stop at nothing is told in three very long hours. The costume drama is beautiful and Rajasthan is a great setting for this tale of Rajput valor. But the talk of pride and glory is so endless, it makes you want to run into your sword out of sheer boredom. But Ranveer Singh makes a brilliant hammy villain, and Deepika is luminous.

Granted, it could do with a tauter screenplay and shorter run-time but 'Padmaavat' is an entertaining, large canvas experience, brought to life with Sanjay Leela Bhansali's stroke of visual brilliance.
