Watch Jodhaa Akbar for its beguiling moments of amour. The rest is window dressing.

Gowariker builds the film on progressive, even if simplistic, politics that may not be palateable to all, but shows his own civility as a filmmaker. Needless to say, Ash and Hrithik work rather well as a pair...

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.

What follows is a three- and-a-half-hour journey back in time to a bygone era, well worth a visit.

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

Audience Reviews for Jodhaa Akbar

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.

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.
