Mumbai, October 9, 2017 : History was made at exactly 1.03 p.m. today when the trailer of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s “Padmavati” came to us. In one word, the experience is indescribable.

The conflicts of war and ownership, the wages of battle as three warriors ready themselves for a fight to a bloody finish, are positioned in images that defy calibration, they only allow celebration.

“Padmavati” seems to be a glorious celebration of heroism and valor brought to us in the deepest shades of love passion and sacrifice.

Among the many monumental achievements evident in the trailer, there is the persuasive conflict between duty and love, between royal commitments and individual alliances.

Deepika Padukone looks ethereal as the Maharani, while Shahid Kapoor as the king looks poised and prepared to wage any war that destiny or Bhansali may have lined up for him.

Clearly, “Padmavati” will be one more feather in Ranveer Singh’s cap. To the role of the Islamic invader, he brings all the aggression and madness of a warrior on the edge.

The brief trailer has breathtaking aerial shots of Ranveer’s army marching towards invasion. I saw a shot of Deepika running towards the balcony of her palace for a better view of her invader’s progress. It reminded me of Aishwarya Rai running to the door of her husband’s home for one last glimpse of the dying “Devdas”.

There is an aura of passionate doom and exhilarating reclamation clinging to every shot in “Padmavati”. The supreme technical skills on display in the trailer make the most of the routine outputs from Bollywood look wretchedly banal.

The trailer of “Padmavati” lifts our sagging spirits and gives us hope for Indian cinema.

Who dares to create such panoramic epic images in today’s day and age? Who but Sanjay Leela Bhansali? (IANS)

India’s Oscar-winning music maestro AR Rahman is pitching in with a creative contribution for Hollywood music veteran and humanitarian Ken Kragen’s climate change effort. Rahman, along with a team of international composers, will create a track titled “Hand in hand” for the initiative.

Kragen, who was honoured with United Nations Peace Medal in 1985 for producing the historic charity anthem “We are the World”, has joined hands with entertainment entrepreneur Neil Morgan to set up an augmented reality (AR) project named “Hands Around The World”.

The project aims at raising money and awareness for the cause of climate change. The initiative will be launched on April 22 next year, on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of Earth Day. The AR app will also be launched the same day, reports variety.com.

While details about Rahman’s composition are awaited, it has come to light that the number will thematically be reminiscent of “We are the world.”

“The mind of the human race is hard wired to seek higher ideals and wisdom. For that, the very first step is to protect that which holds us – planet earth,” Rahman said.

Kragen added: “It is easier to accomplish the impossible than the ordinary.”

The AR app will allow people to download 3D volumetric-captured celebrity holograms and take photographs standing beside them, holding their hands. They will then combine users’ photographs with hundreds of millions of others to form a virtual selfie chain that will become the digital “Hands Around the World”.

Users will be prompted to spread the word and encouraged to donate towards ending climate change.

“There are people that will deny climate change but they can’t deny pollution. Our project intends to galvanise and unite people like never before, in a positive and fun way to help save the planet,” said Morgan. (IANS)
