Movie Info

The land of the sacred Ganga and the towering Himalayas has given the world some personalities whose ideals were resplendently as pure as the water of the Ganga and whose aims were lofty as the Himalayas. Four hundred and sixty two years ago, a man named Jalaluddin Mohammed Akbar was born in this land of the Hindustan. History has recorded that this Mughal Emperor sprinkled the dust of the motherland with his blood. 'Mughal-E-Azam' is a page from the golden history of the land of Akbar.

One of India's greatest feature films has been restored and colorized, giving a new generation of filmgoers a chance to see what all the fuss was about.

An example of popular folk art at its most endearing, and while the film is filled with considerable grace, as a mass entertainment it has not an ounce of subtlety.

In this fully colorized version, K. Asif's already-spellbinding romance feels like it's finally, truly come into its own.

Mughal-E-Azam's themes of love, loyalty and sacrifice remain as relevant as ever -- a true testament to director K Asif's vision and commitment.

Despite of all the grandeur, the film has a tender and delicate heart.

Audience Reviews for Mughal E Azam

There is something that confuses me about this Movie. I have seen the songs of this Movie in Black and White and in Color.
I heard/read and was told that beside Pakeezah and Nikaah this Movie is one of the greatest Classic ever.

My Previous review above.

After watching the Movie::

Good I found out why the Movie was in black & white and in color. It was a K Asif Dream which came decades later true.

Regarding the Movie I can only say::
This is a great and Unforgetable Piece of Candy!

    1. Prince Saleem: [holding the candle to her face] I want to demolish this wall of higher and lower. Anarkali, look at me - I want to see my love in your eyes.
    – Submitted by Raisul I (21 months ago)
    1. Prince Saleem: Do you see any fear in your son's face?
    2. Empress Jodha Bai: Absolutely not, I have trust in my blood. I came to congratulate you - a true Rajput prince may even have death as his bride.
    – Submitted by Raisul I (21 months ago)
    1. Prince Saleem: Times change, emperors change, destinies change... but when love grips a person, that person does not change!
    – Submitted by Raisul I (21 months ago)
    1. Prince Saleem: Treat me as a father and not as a king and give me my Anarkali!
    – Submitted by Raisul I (21 months ago)
    1. Prince Saleem: [flourishing his sword] They are not wounds, they are flowers, and the withering of flowers is shameful for spring. Look at my sword - it's not only a killer, it is a sweetheart; as well as a sword it is the branch of a flower.
    – Submitted by Raisul I (21 months ago)
