Jodhaa Akbar (2008) - Reviewed
My Overall Rating : 7.5/10
Jodhaa Akbar - Indian Period Movie

This is the first time I am going to write my views about an Indian period movie since its Indian Independence Day and this time triggers passion to write something related to my country.

I know India hasn't had much credit to claim when it comes to period movies, the box has been comparatively empty, but then, I thought of a movie which is a very well made period film, Jodha Akbar.

The movie stars Hritik Roshan (Akbar), Aishwarya Rai Bachhan (Jodha), Ila Arun, Kulbhushan Kharbanda, Sonu Sood and the iconic Amitabh Bachhan, who has rendered his baritone voice as the narrator of the movie. The movie follows the story of the sixteenth century Mughal emperor, Jalaluddin Mohammad Akbar's marriage of alliance with a rajput princess, Jodha Bai of Amer, which eventually turns out into a love story.

The movie is very beautiful to the eyes, the costumes and the sets have been designed with details. Its not just the visual and the art direction, the movie scores on each and every ground you can think of, lots of inspiration for other Indian directors and producers to make something worthwhile. The performances are amazing, especially Ila Arun's role as Maham Anga is superb!

If you like period movies and haven't seen this one yet, make haste, its a very good movie, added to that you'll get listen some great songs too!
