Biswadeep Chatterjee’s association with director Sanjay Leela Bhansali goes back a long way – as far as 1999, for Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam. For the magnum opus Padmaavat, he has once again proved that his sensibilities are very much in sync with the auteur’s directorial vision.Chatterjee has used rusticity as his aural ally to create dramatic approaches from scene to scene. Whether it is the fight to the finish between Alauddin Khilji (Ranveer Singh) and Maharawal Ratan Singh (Shahid Kapoor), or the self-immolation scene with Rani Padmavati (Deepika Padukone) leading the Rajput ladies. By using Arabic acoustics for a balance of passion and menace, Chatterjee has hit the right spot.
