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
An imperial epic of 16th-century India, realized on a suitably gargantuan scale by writer-director Ashutosh Gowariker.
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.
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.
Be very patient, sidetrack history, don't look for the artistry of Lagaan, and you might just like this.
There's great chemistry between superstars Roshan and Rai Bachchan. Their solid performances bring home Jodhaa Akbar's saga of star-crossed lovers.
What follows is a three- and-a-half-hour journey back in time to a bygone era, well worth a visit.
The music and dance that are such hallmarks of Bollywood filmmaking are here seamlessly incorporated into the story rather than creating a pause in the action.
This is epic on every scale, each frame dripping with beauty.
Bollywood films, more than films from anywhere else in the world, harken back to the heyday of the Hollywood studio star system with all the glamour and gloss that goes with that.
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.
Fantastic movie by Ashutosh Gowariker! Amazing story plot. Great cast- Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Hrithik Roshan, Sonu Sood. Amazing music!! Definitely worth seeing.
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.
