Storyline

Emperor Sultan Iltames is known for his fairness, compassion, and sense of justice. He takes swift action when he comes to know that his very son has violated the peace, and broken the law, and has him severely and publicly whipped, incurring his wife's displeasure. The apple of Sultan's eye is his daughter, Razia, and he would like her to succeed him as Emperor. This decision raises a hue and cry against the emperor, as many are opposed to a woman ruling over them. Razia proves herself to the people by showing herself as much caring, compassionate, and dedicated as her dad, earning the respect of all, and she is accepted as the first ever female emperor of the land. After her succession, the court officials start to gossip about her personal life, and her affair with a Yakut Jamaluddin. The problem is that Yakut is a dark-skinned man, who was the emperor's slave at one time, but set free and inducted in the army. Razia must now chose between her crown and her love for Yakut.

excellent
4 May 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A bollywood classic, which along with another classic mughaleazam, serves as the groundwork and guide for today's movies like Jodha Akbar. The sets are gorgeous and the direction and dialogue is well suited given the era of Delhi's history. Hema is perfect in her role, graceful and royal! The language is complex for those who don't know it, but if you know Urdu like me, then its music to your ears!! Even if you don't dig Urdu, watch it just for the sake of India's glorious history and for the sake of its magical past! The music is lovely, and the sultan's wedding song can even be used today to entertain guests at modern day weddings!. Well done, Amrohi! One star less only because I think the movie's scene editing could have been a little smoother - but no big deal.
