Why is Deepika considered overrated by some?

 DP is the most non-overrated actress of all time, acc. to me. The combination of beauty, screen presence, and talent she brings to the table is mesmerizing and lethal.


Let me mention something here. I was not a fan of hers when OSO came out. In fact, I was rooting for the underdog Sonam.


Years later, I watched Cocktail and her entry scene stole my breath away. Right from the body language to the way she emoted in that movie left me breathless. A star-actress was born, and I have only grown more and more fond of her as time passed. A few years later, I saw Piku. In that movie, she was insanely good. That before-last movie scene with Irfaan at the coffee table - whoever says she can't act should watch that on repeat.


I personally thought she was exemplary in both Piku and Tamasha. In Tamasha, the way she soaked in the character was nothing short of marvellous. OMG and the scene in which she rejects the engagement ring. What an immortal moment on celluloid, with pitch-perfect acting.


Yes, she fell short in Padmaavat but to me she redeemed herself with Chapaak. She completely disappeared into the character, and left no traces of Deepika but just melted into Malti with such ease and understated grace.


Let's be objective: Deepika is a gift to the film industry and she is that rare combination of beauty and talent which comes once in a blue moon.


Discuss.

Deepika is a pretty face to look at. Average actress in few movies, above average in few & total disaster in periodic SLB movies smiley36 It's satisfying to watch her movies if that falls into the above average category, but saying she is a gift to bollywood would be taking it too far smiley36

Could it be a case of waste potential. From 2015-present she made some bad decisions

She cannot act. She is so stiff on camera and cannot mouth dialogues properly. The only difference between her and Katrina is that Deepika is more expressive.
