Mughal emperor, Akbar, and a Rajput princess, Jodha.

Jodhaa Akbar


fun fact: Over 80 elephants, 100 horses, and 55 camels were used in the movie.

One of the greatest motion pictures of our time, Jodhaa Akbar is a
sixteenth century epic romance - Muslim and Hindi - with heavy doses of electrifying drama
and wide canvas battle sequences. Possibly being the most ambitious and gutsy film to come out in the scenario of Indian cinema, creating an unchartered cinema territory, new ground in its filming and its scenes. 
With so much attention focused on Islamic extremism, now seems an apt time for a movie about Akbar, the 16th-century Muslim emperor in India, whose legacy is one of enlightened rule and almost radical religious tolerance. Jodhaa Akbar begins before all that, when the young Akbar is still busy expanding the Mughal empire
Jodhaa Akbar is not a history lesson: Where are Akbar’s 199 other wives, or the painters and poets who made his court a fabled one? But in choosing to tell the tale of this emperor and a Muslim-Hindu love story, As Akbar says, “Respect for each other’s religion will enrich Hindustan.”

The actors were just Perfect! The musics were superb! The camera-technique and its clearness were awesome!



Here we go, my fav scenes! just.so.beautiful!
