Set in the 16th century AD, the movie brings to life the tale of the doomed love affair between the Mughal Crown Prince Saleem and the beautiful, ill-fated court dancer, whose fervor and intensity perpetrates a war between the prince and his father the great Mughal Emperor Akbar, and threatens to bring an empire to its knees.

The movie was originally shot three times, once each for lips moving for Hindi, Tamil and English dialogs. The Tamil version of the movie did very poorly, so the dream of having Shakespearean actors from Britain doing the dubbing in English was dropped. In 2004, it was announced that after extensive search, no copies of the English version are available. See more »

Gr8 plot,keeps the watcher on toes, gr8 characterization, excellent music, lyrics, and awesome color schemes. Worth watching N-times
Its one of the best made movies ever, Excellent characterization starting from Anarkali (Madhubala, the best actress India has ever produced.), to Akbar, to Salim, even supporting actors characters are too good like Durjan singh, and Manaraja Mansingh. The twists and turns of the movie keeps you guessing and always on your toes. Its one of the best and most celebrated movie of India cinema. The music and lyrics you will keep rhyming for days after watching the movie. The new color version of the old classic has given viewers one more chance to view the hugely celebrated movie.
Given a choice its worth seeing it N-times.
