One of Hindi cinema's best known films ever, It took nine years and enormous expense to complete this historical based in the closing years of Akbar's reign (1556-1605). So lavish were the sets of the film that people used to come from distant places to just see them.
The film narrates the story of Prince Salim's (later Jahangir 1605-1628) love for Anarkali, a singer. A love his father strongly disapproves of. But so strong is Salim's love for Anarkali that he goes to battle against his father. Akbar defeats Salim in battle and orders him to be executed.
However, according to the royal decree, the Salim can be saved from dying if Anarkali dies in his place. Anarkali, spunky woman that she is, however does her own thing by defying Akbar in his palace. The song 'Pyaar Kiya to Darna Kya' went on to become one of the most popular songs ever recorded and the Sheesh Mahal created for the song was a major attraction for the crowds.
According to legend, Akbar ordered Anarkali to be walled alive, but the film shows that unknown to Salim, Akbar spares her. A melodrama, rather loudly done, the film had a large star cast including Prithviraj Kapoor as Akbar, Dilip Kumar as Salim, Madhubala (Anarkali) and Durga Khote as Jodha Bai.Its watch worth.
