Critic Reviews for Jodhaa Akbar

All Critics (14) | Top Critics (5)

Jodhaa Akbar, a historical romance directed by Ashutosh Gowariker, is filmmaking on the grand scale of Cecil B. DeMille, with romance, stirring battles, a cast of thousands and enough elephants and gold to sink the Titanic.

Luckily, Aishwarya Rai's mesmerizing good looks make three and a half hours tick by like, well, two and a half hours

Feb 23, 2008 | Rating: B- | Full Review…

An imperial epic of 16th-century India, realized on a suitably gargantuan scale by writer-director Ashutosh Gowariker.

Feb 21, 2008 | Full Review…

A long-limbed story that is utterly simple in structure, but decorated with enough character interplay and side plots to keep the movie ticking over to a powerful finale.

These are the real human moments in the film. One just wishes there were a few more.

Feb 15, 2008 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

The action set pieces are sound and fury amounting to nothing. Amitabh Bachchan's voice-over commentary is stale. Kiran Deohan's cinematography is conventional and Ballu Saluja's editing is rather old-fashioned.

Audience Reviews for Jodhaa Akbar

Long, but it doesn't feel so when you are watching it. It was okay, but I felt the war/fight scenes weren't interesting at all. Beautiful cinematography, a very beautiful film to watch.

This year's must see film is a spectacle beyond belief. Spectacular in every detail. Bollywood's version of "Ben-Hur" and "Cleopatra" on a grand scale. The movie iteslf is gorgeous,but it also some of the greatest battle sequences every committed to film including one that features elephants and camels(which was something right outta other movies)but this one is much more brilliant. At a running time of 242 minutes,it is the must see film of 2008. and with good reason.
