Critic Reviews for Mughal E Azam
At over three hours, and an alleged 17 years in the making, this is an undeniably heavy-going concoction -- but the feast of intricate sounds and visuals make it one to savour.
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.
The conclusion has too many twists, and the pair of color segments, while stunningly opulent, make the black and white seem like a limitation.
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.
Rightly hailed as one of the treasures of Indian cinema, this mammoth historical melodrama established any number of standard Bollywood themes and scenarios.
Audience Reviews for Mughal E Azam
It's not Spartacus, but better than Asoka. The ending is kind of mean but I was expecting more evil...
Technically advanced for its time, this movie represents one of the greatest love stories ever told in Indian history with magnificance and granduer.
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!
