Krishna and His Leela Review: The Complexity of Feelings is Often Heartbreaking

Making its way to Netflix this month is the Ravikanth Perepu directed Krishna and His Leela. Being a fan of regional cinema, the movie to me seemed like a fresh take on love and relationships.

To think that you’ll never feel for anyone after a bad heartbreak is something almost everyone has been through but what will you do when you meet someone who touches your heart again without even trying to do that? Will you give up or hold to your new and old love! It’s messy but again, it’s love.

Starring Sidhu Jonnalagadda, Shraddha Srinath, Shalini Vadnikatti, and Seerat Kapoor along with other cast members, this Tollywood film is a heartful rom-com.

Side Effects Of Love

Krishna, to me, was like every other college student – confused, figuring himself out, immature, possessive, extensively sad sometimes and in love. The story starts with Krishna and his girlfriend Sathya, who leaves him because she got a job now and long-distance won’t work, it sucks. We Understand.

Krishna’s later relationship with Radha is what I found very beautiful, it’s new and raw – it’s sweet. But Krishna is a confused man, with intertwined feelings about both Radha and Sathya. While love triangles and complex feelings are more or less the basic structure of a rom-com, Krishna and his Leela manages to keep you hooked till the very end.

Krishna, Sathya, And Radha

The characters are named after mythical fables – Krishna, Sathya, and Radha. The question is – if Krishna loves Sathya and Radha equally, who will get to be with him? While the names are mythical, the times and the story aren’t. Krishna must choose but to choose one is to lose a part of him. It’s complex, it’s heartbreaking but as I said- the complexity of feelings is often heartbreaking!

After the two hours span of the movie, Krishna finally understands after talking to his long-gone father that he cannot hold on to both of them just because he loves them, he cannot break their hearts (but… you did that before!)

Stream It or Skip It?

STREAM IT. Krishna and his Leela is a soft-hearted rom-com, dealing with the complexity of love and feelings. Love is the purest of motion and the unrestricted one! It’s mischievous. There are also some sexist aspects as Krishna says to himself when Radha is angry due to his stupidity that “it’s that time of the month, maybe.” Well, Krishna, glad you matured later.

Seerat Kapoor as Ruksaar also plays an amazing role, and she is also a part of Krishna’s Leela, and what happens between Krishna, Sathya, and Radha? To know, watch Krishna and his Leela and also, two-timing isn’t cool. Just saying.

Krishna and His Leela is streaming Now on Netflix.

  1. Hare Krishna

    This is to inform you that I have filed a complaint against Netflix for its movie Krishna and his leela for hurting religious sentiments under Section 295A of IPC at Kapurbwadi Police Station Thane Maharashtra.

    However, I would like to draw your attention to a major lacuna in the reporting of this Netflix matter that is going on in the media.

    All media reports related to this matter end up reporting only the facts of the matter namely the filing of the case and the location where it has been filed that’s all. The media can also go ahead and inform the general public about the correct information in the matter.

    Namely the misinformation that is being spread so widely about Lord Krishna in this movie can be countered by informing the public about correct facts about Lord Krishna’s Raas Leela.


    * Raas Leela is not the only Leela performed by Lord Krishna in His Krishna avtaar, He also performed the Leela of lifting the Govardhan mountain, the Leela of consuming fire to save His friends from forest fire, the Leela of showing His viraat Avatar to Arjuna but movie makers perverted mind seems to be stuck on that Leela only.

    * One roop of Lord Krishna danced with each of the 10000 crore Gopis in the Raas Leela not that a single Lord Krishna was dancing with all the Gopis.

    *Brahma Sanhita Chapter 5 Verse 37 says that all the Gopis were an extention of the body of Lord Krishna Himself.

    * The Raas Leela dance was performed by the Lord for a period of One day of Lord Brahma or 429 Million years it was not a human one night stand as depicted by perverted minds in this movie.

    * Lord Krishna rescued 16000 women abducted by Rakshas Narkasur and when after being rescued the women said that they could no longer go back home after living with the rakshasa, Lord Krishna married them all and one roop of Lord Krishna lived with each of them.

    * When His sister and Arjuna fell in love Lord Krishna Himself helped them get married thus acknowledging a woman’s the right to choose her husband 5000 years back which was otherwise prevalant in the form of swayamvar.

    *When His grandson Aniruddh was arrested for loving Banasur Raksha’s daughter He faught Banasur probably the Only time Lord Krishna aggressively leads an army in His entire Leela to save the lovers and secure their right to get married.

    *.When draupdi was being disrobed He saved her.

    *. Vastrharan Leela- Please note that at the time of the vastr haran Leela Lord Krishna was eleven years or less of age since He left Vrindavan at the age of eleven and the vastr haran Leela was performed before that. So these are games being played by a little boy.

    Thus if you look closely the nuances of His Leela, Lord Krishna is setting an example 5000 years back wherein those women who wanted Him, to them He gave one roop of His to live with them, anything being done against the woman’s will was stopped by Him and further He supported a woman’s right or lovers right to get married.

    If anyone misrepresents such a loving God who gave women so much respect all through His Leela, Hindus are absolutely right in buoycotting such non sense.

    Please note Hindu shastras are the information database of entire humanity.
    Any conspiracy against Sanatan Dharma is a conspiracy against entire Humanity. The word “Loka” in Hinduism means “planets” and the Hindu shastras essentially give us the basic structure of of the entire Universe,
    How, where and what position the humans have vis a vis the structure of the Universe and how thus we are supposed to lead our lives in accordance with Vedic principles.

    Had we been following these principles and understood our position as dependants on Mother Nature rather than trying to rule over her, the world would not have been in this lockdown situation today.

    Will leave you with this quote :-

    A dialogue between ISKCON founder Srila Prabhupada and his disciple

    Pusaṣṭa Kṛṣṇa: Is this Vedic religion, this sanātana-dharma, so broad that everyone is included?

    Śrīla Prabhupāda: Yes. Sanātana means “eternal.” As Kṛṣṇa says in the Bhagavad-gītā, na hanyate hanyamāne śarīre: “The living entity within the body is not destroyed when the body is destroyed, because he is eternal.” So that eternality belongs to everyone. Not that the Hindus, after giving up this body, exist, and the Muslims or Christians do not exist. Everyone exists eternally. So sanātana-dharma is meant for everyone.
