Jodha Akbar (2008) - (Movies To See Before You Die - Historical)

Jodha Akbar - Bobby Talks Cinema.com

Ashutosh proves himself once again with his New Age Epic and gives a new dimension to the word ‘GRANDEUR’ in Indian Cinema. The very first thing I suggest is that don’t consider it as an Historical movie, rather see it as a fiction and keep aside all the controversies related with Jodha, her actual name and her relationship with Akbar. The second thing I would like to say that as most of the people took it as a miscast movie, “its not”. The casting is just perfect and after watching it you cannot consider any other actor portraying the role of Akbar among the young generation so brilliantly except Hrithik.

Hrithik is again at his best and has done full justice with his character. Especially he is incomparable in the scenes where he shows his anger. Equally impressive is Aishwarya as Jodha and she provides all the dignity and beauty needed by her character. Here I would like to add that the promos of the film are only 10% of its actual worth, so don’t be mislead by them. It is purely a love story in the background of ruling Mughals & their conflicts with Rajputs with some awesome music by A. R. Rahman.

Directed By Ashutosh Gowariker
Starring : Hrithik Roshan & Aishwarya Rai Bachhan

I don\'t understand what came to ur mind when u listed Jodha Akbar in Movies To See Before You Die - Historical.Its neither historical nor a movie to be seen before dying.
U can list it in the DRAMA category but not in the historical list. Otherwise start a new section named fiction movie and list it there. U can list the movie as one of the movie where hrithik roshan had given his best performance.the director made a mistake in making it and u made a biger mistake by listing it in the category of historical movies.
whats historical in it other than the name of Akbar,Jodha and Din-e-Ilahi.
I think people will die if they go to see this movie considering as a historical movie.

Hi Bijay,
I think you read the writeup pretty fast and missed the first line. In the very first line I have written that please dont take it as a Historical but take it as a Fiction.

And You are very right in saying that its not exactly a HISTORICAL. Thats very much true in all contexts and I also believe that Ashutsh glorified it by adding many fictional things into the movie.

But the film had to be included in Historical to avoid easy sorting for the readers and that is the only reason for the movie being there in that category.

Supporting your right concern In my opinion instead of HISTORICAL we can also call it PERIOD Drama.

Anyway thanks for visiting the site and writing a valuable comment.
