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.
