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.

Delicate and strong
3 December 2004 | by (New Delhi) – See all my reviews

'Razia Sultan' stands out as that one gem made too behind of its times! If Amrohi Sb had made the film just a decade or two before he actually did, it would have perhaps been a major success! Exquisite in style, taste and language, the film is a soulful and sensuous, respectful look at one of history's favourite daughters - one who historians can't really decide where to place!

Hema Malini in one of her most controlled performances - full of grace and integrity, Dharmendra proving once again, his looks are as much a killer as his talent.

The ensemble of music, sets, costumes and design works amazingly well. Recommended highly for lovers of history, romance and drama, as also those of good music - gems galore - 'Ae dile nadaan' has to be one of Lata's all time greats, and 'Aayi zanjeer ki jhankaar' does not have another song or voice to compare to in Hindi film music. 'Jalta hai badan' and 'Choom kar' as also 'Hariyala banna aaya re' are greats in their own right!
