A beautiful larger than life movie! The magnitude of the canvas is indeed very breathtaking. A three and a half hour movie, worth every single second. Director Ashutosh Gowariker's managed to successfully pull of another excellent cinema in his detailed film-making style. The lead actors and the supporting actors too have done a brilliant job in making this movie a truly amazing experience.
The story is almost entirely based on the popular folklore about young the Mughal Emperor Jalaluddin Mohammed (Hrithik) getting wedded to the princess of Amer Jodha (Aishwarya), a match arranged for political gain. But, little do both know that this marriage would spark off a fiery romance in the backdrop of young Jalal metamorphosing into an all powerful Emperor Akbar thwarting pressures from family,religious heads & administrative issues. The story neither has a beginning or an end. There is abundance chemistry between the lead actors Hrithik and Ash which makes their roles much more believable!
Great music by the maestro A.R.Rahman and breathtaking cinematography. My advice to the audience is to not miss Jodhaa Akbar because doing so would be a huge mistake. It is a masterpiece and a definite must see. Don't miss it!

It is really annoying when a certain group of people wakes up just before the release of a film and tries to stop the its screening on the basis of some not so worthy accusations. I may not be the right person to comment on this but when the movie in question is Jodha Akbar, I do get very dishearten. I cant understand how a harmless film made to entertain people can actually offend them in any way. Honestly, I feel, films like Jodha Akbar are made once in a lifetime and nobody should restrain anyone from watching it. Ashutosh Gowarikers Jodha Akbar is an epic romance. Its a story about the greatest Mughal emperor that ruled Hindustan, Jalaluddin Mohammed Akbar, and the fiery young Rajput Princess, Jodha. This surreal romance begins as a marriage of alliance between two cultures and religions, for political gain. King of Amer gives his daughters hand to Emperor Akbar to seek protection and shelter, and on the other hand Akbar feels more than obliged to accept in order to strengthen his relations with Rajputs and achieve more power. But little did he knew that in his attempt to spread his kingdom he would in turn be embarking on a new journey- The journey of Love. The rest of the films covers the life of Akbar, from young nave Jalaluddin who was crowned on the battlefield, through his many achievements, to the conquests that won him the title of Akbar The Great, to winning the love of beautiful Jodha.
One thing is sure that you will be completely captivated by this enchanting film. Its a visual delight for the audience which will leave them awestruck. Ashutosh has lived up to his image once again by making this film on a mammoth size budget. With the interesting story and meaningful dialogues in Urdu and Hindi to exquisite jewelry, exuberant costumes and such magnificent sets you will be left wanting for more. Hritik Roshan as Mughal emperor is impeccable. It was indeed very difficult to break the image of PrithviRaj Kapoor fixed in our mind from ages, but Hritik did it so well. It was his single release in two years and when you see him on screen it clearly shows all the hard work he has put in it. Aishwarya Rai Bachchan as a Rajput princess is looking very stunning and have portrayed her role with equal finesse. There are many worth mentioning scenes in the film like the taming of a voracious elephant, the cold war between Jodha and mahamanga (portrayed brilliantly by Ila Arun), the sword plays, and many-many more. But the scenes which completely stands out are the one including the lead pair. Every time they come together on screen your heart takes a leap and u watch with bated breath. Their love at first sight, the way Akbar tries to impress Jodha, the Rajasthani meal sequence and the scene when Jodha peeks behind the curtain to have a look of bare chested Akbar practicing his sword skills are the few iconic scenes from the film. The rest of the cast includes Sonu Sood, Kulbhushan Kharbanda, Raza Murad and Nikitin Dheer. This grandeur also includes maestro A.R. Rehman who has given music to the soulful lyrics by Javed Akhter. There are in all five compositons which perfectly fits in the screenplay and you can bet that each and every song stands out specially jashn-e-bahar and khawja mere khwaja. The picturisation of azeem-o-shan is to watch out for with thousands of extras dancing for Akbars glory. Overall its a great piece of cinematic brilliance which will continue to cast its spell through generations. view less
