Ramleela is an Indian romantic-drama film directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali and released in 2013. The film stars Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone in lead roles while Supriya Pathak, Sharad Kelkar, and Gulshan Devaiah play supporting characters. The movie revolves around the love story of Ram (played by Singh) and Leela (played by Padukone) who belong to different communities that have been at odds with each other for centuries.

The film is set in the small town of Ranjaar, where the locals are divided into two distinct groups, the Rajadi and the Saneda. These two groups have been at war with each other for generations. Amidst this backdrop, Ram and Leela, belonging to the Rajadi and Saneda communities respectively, fall deeply in love with each other.

The plot of the movie centers around the struggles faced by Ram and Leela in their quest to be together. They both must face opposition from their respective communities and families who disapprove of their love. As the story progresses, the tension between the two communities intensifies and culminates in a bloody and violent climax, leaving Ram and Leela struggling to stay alive and together.

Ranveer Singh, who plays Ram in the movie, delivers a stellar performance, imbuing his character with the nuances and emotions required to do justice to the role. Deepika Padukone, who plays Leela, is equally impressive, effortlessly blending her beauty and grace with the complexity and turmoil of her character.

Another standout performance in the film is that of veteran actress Supriya Pathak, who plays Leela's mother Dhankor, the feisty and headstrong matriarch of the Saneda community. Pathak's performance is nuanced and powerful, the perfect foil to Singh and Padukone's characters.

The movie's production design is also noteworthy, with Bhansali leaving no stone unturned in recreating the town of Ranjaar with detailed sets, elaborate costumes, and stunning visual effects. The songs in the movie are also a highlight, with tracks like "Nagada Sang Dhol" and "Lahu Munh Lag Gaya" becoming instant classics.

Overall, Ramleela is a visually striking and emotionally resonant movie that explores the themes of love, tradition, and conflict. With powerful performances by the lead actors and a compelling narrative, the movie is a must-watch for fans of romantic dramas and Indian cinema in general.
