Jodhaa Akbar

Director: Ashutosh Gowariker.
SYNOPSIS Jodhaa Akbar is the story of the greatest Mughal emperor that ruled Hindustan, Jalaluddin Mohammad Akbar, and the fiery young Rajput princess, Jodhaa. Set in the sixteenth century, the epic romance begins as a marriage of alliance between two cultures and religions, for political gain, with King Bharmal of Amer giving his daughter’s hand to Emperor Akbar. When Akbar accepts the marriage proposal, little does he know that in his efforts to strengthen his relations with the Rajputs, he would in turn be embarking on a new journey – the journey of true love. From the battlefield where the young Jalaluddin was crowned, through the conquest that won him the title of Akbar the Great, to winning the love of the beautiful Jodhaa, Jodhaa Akbar traces the impressive graph of the mighty emperor and his romance with the defiant princess. With Hrithik Roshan as Akbar and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan as Jodhaa, the film is produced by Ronie Screwvala and Ashutosh Gowariker.

The good, the bad and the ugly

Alex Deleon offers his choice of ten best and worst films of the past year. Well, it's that time again when many film reviewers and critics compile their lists of Best (and Worst) of the flicks they were exposed to in the preceding year. Given that one can no more tell people which films they "should" like and which they shouldn't, anymore than you can expect everybody to agree with you on the taste of tripe soup or boiled tongue-- or even honey, for that matter -- it should be obvious to any pe...

Bollywood Comes to Berlin

user
The biggest movie star in the world gave a press conference today and although the festival programers have given the film a prime slot in its program, the media in attendance was pretty sparse.

"Om Shanti Om", directed by Farah Khan and produced by the star, is at once a romantic film and a tribute to the memory of 70s Bollywood. In an endless s...
