  • Rightly hailed as one of the treasures of Indian cinema, this mammoth historical melodrama established any number of standard Bollywood themes and scenarios.

  • 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.

    April 9, 2005 | Full Review…
  • 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.

    April 9, 2005 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • It looks a bit creaky and elderly sometimes, but Karimuddin Asif tells his story with gusto.

Audience Reviews for Mughal-E-Azam

  • Jul 14, 2010
    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!
