Deepika Padukone has scored a hattrick with the success of "Ram-Leela" and the actress is receiving plaudits from all quarters.

Her first big hit of the year was "Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani" and "Chennai Express" followed it. Now comes "Ram-Leela".

The three back-to-back hits boast of variety.

From playing nerdy Naina to South Indian Meenamma and now a Gujarati girl in "Ram-Leela", the 27-year-old has proved her versatility with the three movies.

Sarang Chandak of Shri Rang Films said that Deepika's performance was "outstanding".

"I believe the film will have a very impressive run at the ticket windows. Deepika not only looks stunning in the film, she has also delivered an outstanding performance," Chandak said.

Rajesh Thadani of Multimedia Combines feels that Deepika has contributed to the success of "Ram-leela" and added that the actress has emerged as a "sure-shot success at the box office this year".

In "Ram-Leela" director Sanjay Leela Bhansali presented the fresh pair of Ranveer Singh and Deepika to narrate William Shakespeare's "Romeo and Juliet" in desi style with Gujarat as its backdrop.

Said Debashish Dey of Aum Moviez, West Bengal: "Thanks to Deepika and her success with her previous releases, the response to afternoon shows improved. Expectations are at an all-time high."

Deepika, daughter of veteran badminton player Prakash Padukone, made her Bollywood debut with Farah Khan-directed 2007 hit "Om Shanti Om", where she played Shah Rukh Khan's love interest.

She then appeared in films like "Bachna Ae Haseeno", "Chandni Chowk To China", "Love Aaj Kal", "Housefull", "Break ke Baad", "Aarakshan" and "Desi Boyz", but it was only after her bold character portrayal of Veronica in "Cocktail" that the industry realised her hidden potential.

She will next be seen in "Finding Fanny" and "Happy New Year".

    Poor Movie by SLB. Have to walked out with an irkness. Songs were good but didnt fit in the story line at all especially ishkqiyan Dishkqiyon and Priyanka's item song. I personally felt that Ram and Leela's characters were totally heartless and their strings were connected by means of only lust rather than love. Supriya Pathak performance is good but her character gets lamer after the Navratri song. Deepika shines and Ranveer is good too in action sequences mostly. Ramleela lacks the content of Love, from start till end all Ram and Leela wanted to do was sex. Pathetic.

    Movie was bad. Worst movie of slb. So much violence , double meaning dialogues and unbelievable story. Acting of all the stars were fab but wasted.
