Goliyon Ki Raasleela - Ram-leela

Ram-Leela is a romantic-drama film directed and produced by Sanjay Leela Bhansali. It stars Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone as the eponymous leads. The film is said to be an adaptation of Shakespeare's epic love story Romeo and Juliet, set in violent times.


This is the second time Sanjay Leela Bansali will compose for a film, the first being the 2010 film Guzaarish. Monty Sharma who composed for Saawariya (2007) returns after long gap. The lyrics are penned by Siddharth–Garima. The soundtrack album was released on 2 October 2013 after a delay due to Ranveer Singh's health issues.

Several religious groups opposed the Movie claiming that the movie title was misleading as the movie had nothing to do with Lord Rama. A Local Court in Mumbai has issued an “ex-parte ad-interim stay” over the use of term Ram Leela in the Movie Title. A Delhi court Tuesday 12th November stayed the release of Bollywood movie "Ram-leela", starring Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone. The movie is scheduled to be released Nov 15.

Additional District Judge A.S. Jayachandra, in an ex-parte interim order, restrained the movie's director Sanjay Leela Bhansali and Eros promoters from releasing the movie till further orders. The court's order came on a suit filed by six petitioners, including Prabhu Samaj Dharmik Ram Leela Committee, saying the movie hurt the religious sentiments of Hindus as it contains sex, violence and vulgarity. The plea said the word "Ram Leela" is associated with Lord Rama and people will also watch this movie with an expectation that it would be related to his life but the film will hurt their sentiments.

It added that the name of the movie should be changed as it has nothing to do with mythology and it is misleading.

The title "Ram-leela", understood by Hindus as enactment of the life and story of Lord Ram (Maryada Purushottam), is nowhere doing the same. On the contrary, the film is portraying sex, violence and vulgarity, which is deeply hurting the religious sentiments and feelings of Hindus, the petitioners said.
