Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone in RamleelaThe trailer of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s latest film Ramleela has been appreciated by one and all.

"It’s a mind-blowing trailer," says trade analyst Taran Adarsh. "Undoubtedly, one of the best trailers of the year. It proves once again that Sanjay Leela Bhansali is a master storyteller and a class apart.”

Exhausted after the trailer release Bhansali says, "I’ve agonized over every single frame in the trailer. I worked on it until the last minute. They had to literally drag me away from the editing."

While many aspects of the trailer have caught people’s attention, it is the aggression and the action that seem to be the talking-point.

Says SLB, “So far there was nothing more than a slap in my films. In fact, action director Shyam Kaushal would complain in every film, ‘Why call me for action direction for just a slap?’ This time in Ramleela, we’ve enough action to make Shyam Kaushal happy. Ramleela is my most violent film."

Guns, which form an integral part of the violent love story, have never been seen in a Sanjay Leela Bhansali film before. The film’s title is preceded by a subtitle which reads ‘Goliyon ki raas leela.'

That just about says it all.

Says SLB, “It’s a bright happy colourful film. I am returning to my Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam and Devdas style of filmmaking."
