Jodhaa Akbar - Movie Review

Jodhaa Akbar - Movie Review

I thought it is going to be a historical portrayal of Akbar before the release. But it turned out to be more of love story which starts after the marriage of Jodhaa with Akbar.

The movie has got everything - Political moves, war, hatred, jealous, love of religions, love story between the lead pair and family bonding and kitchen cabinet sabotage, plans etc...

The acting is top notch by Hrithik Roshan, Aishwarya, Ila Arun. The sets are class apart. Scripting is fairly good and covering all sort of angles. Clothes and Jewellery are outstanding. Photography is mind blowing.

Salute to A R Rahman for the great music score. I felt that first ten minutes of music was bit loud bit it toned down when the movie settles down. I didnt like the music at two points due to familiarity - One place similar to Bombay movie and the
other with Boopalam raaga when Hrithik gets well.

Another salute to Ashutosh for making this movie. I now realise what a grand movie means. Mr Shankar (south indian director of Sivaji, Mudalvan) should see this movie to understand how money can be spent to make the movie look lavish.
