Critic Reviews for Asoka
Part historical epic, Part booty-shaking music video. While the musical segues could have ended up on the editing room floor, I've sat through worse things than Kareena Kapoor shaking her bootay.
While it doesn't quite stack up with the best of recent Indian imports ... this handsome historical epic does have a lot to recommend it.
Bold, rich, vibrant and passionate.
This enthralling film deserves to realise Indian producers' longstanding dream of reaching an international audience.
If you leave your prejudices at the box office, you may find it rather invigorating -- if a little on the lengthy side.
Audience Reviews for Asoka
Sorry but movie sucks big time. Do you guys want to see western hip-hop dance in classical Indian movie? well here it is..
Pretty cinematography and good character development. It was good to see Shahrukh turn from proud prince to reformed monk.
An applaudable effort from Santosh Sivan. If he had shown the guts to make this movie without the song sequences and certain Bolywood gimmicks this could have been a real class act, and well worth showing to an international audience.
