Mughal-e-Azam Reviews:

I haven't seen the black and white original of Mughal E Azam since the '80's, but I recently saw the restored revived colourised 2004 re-release for the first time and was astounded by the results. I'm not a believer in messing around with the originals, but bearing in mind director Asif everytime wanted to create the entire movie in colour but didn't have enough cash the "final" product is nice to see - such is technology! It was incredibly expensive to create as it was, the restoration process gotta have cost a fabulous amount too.Seminal Indian epic purporting to deal with happenings from about 400 years ago around Prince Saleem (Dilip Kumar) falling in love with a court dancer Anarkali (Madhubala) to his father Akbar's utter opposition and eventually causing a rift leading to all out war. The drama and fight spectacle scenes are memorable enough, with thousands of humans and animals as extras, and the melody is uniformly magnificent too. But it's Pyar Kiya To Darna Kya (If I have loved someone>why could I be afraid?) sung by Anarkali (Lata) to the 2 of them in the Hall Of Mirrors that is absolutely stunning - I will have to receive the original and compare, because the remaster seems to have turned this song into something even more magical and mesmerising than I remembered. It took Naushad and Shakeel Badayuni one night to compose melody and lyrics so timeless - a colorful piece of poetry in motion, with the insistent kaleidoscopic climax added by Asif. Awesome! According to the legend it was supposed to have an unhappy ending - needless to tell I'm glad it was altered here to a satisfied one after such a roller-coaster ride!A tremendous work of Art, showing the very greatest of Indian cinema.


Haha -- when I see comments that place Kuch Kuch Hota Hain or any another formulaic hindi flick as "the greatest movie ever" they obviously didn't see K. Asif's vision of Mughal-e-Azam. From Prithviraj Kapoor's superb rendering of the imposing Emperor Akbar to Dalip Kumar's obvious love for the spectacular Madhubhala. The exquisite Urdu dialogues is of course not for the neophyte. But for those that can appreciate the finer things in life -- not some cloying Hum Apke Hain Kaun or Shah Rukh Khan's obsession with bleeding and overacting in each single movie -- Mughal-e-Azam fits the bill perfectly.


A real masterpiece,featuring some of the best actors ever to grace the Indian screen.Prithviraj Kapoor,the doyen of Indian Cinema is Akbar himself and Dilip Kumar & Madhubala both place in sterling performances There is a question as to whether the story was now real but the very nature of the storyline indicates the lvl of religious tolerance that existed at the time of Akbar.Akbar's wife Rani Jodhabhai was a hindu and that was the mughal way of building bridges with their hindu subjects.The role of Akbar would really serve as a model for religious amity today.The major trouble Akbar had in consenting to the marriage of dancer Anarkali(represented by Madhubala) and Prince Salim(Dilip Kumar) was the class status.After all it was the 16th century All in all,a grand spectacle which showcases Indian culture at its very greatest and grandest and leaves one to wonder at the relative deterioration in subsequent centuries
