With Padmaavat finally out in theatres, social media is full of audience verdict and they are not mincing any words, with a pinch of salt and a tinge of humour, while tweeting about what they thought of the film.
Despite being marred by controversies and faced with numerous threats of bans, Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s film Padmaavat released on January 25 (Thursday). The Deepika Padukone–Ranveer Singh–Shahid Kapoor-starrer has been embroiled in controversiesever since the shoot began, leading to the makers’ postponing the release date. While many on the Internet were furious that the Karni Sena attacked a school bus ferrying little children as a protest to the stay on Padmaavat‘s ban, now that the film has released, social media, especially the micro-blogging site, is buzzing with people’s responses to the film. With a pinch of salt and a tinge of humour, many Tweeple seem to have minced no words in speaking their minds about what they thought of the film, now that they have finally got to watch it.
“Now that it’s finally released let’s take a look at what #Padmaavat has taught us: Movie titles can be masculine but not feminine, Women can self-immolate but not love, Fictitious women can be fought for but not real ones Thank you #KarniSena for showing us the real India,” is one of the scathing comments doing the rounds of the Internet. Many funny jibes were also made on how the film is also being released in 3D. “Don’t watch #Padmaavat in 3D. An arrow flying in your direction might be an actual arrow by Karni Sena.” is one of them.
