Trivia

For the sequences where Shah Jahan kept looking at the Taj Mahal from his chamber, a miniature model of the Taj was created to get the right perspective for the actor and the cameramen. The difficult part was calculating the distance between the Agra fort and the Taj, as that would determine the Taj's size as seen by Shah Jahan. There was an idea to use the original Taj Mahal, but the idea was scrapped due to the difficulty of finding locations. Besides, in the film the Taj is newly built and shining white, whereas currently the Taj, due to age and acid rain, has a distinct yellowish hue. See more »

Fantastic!
25 April 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Absolutely loved it! The sets were mind-blowing. The acting was pretty good considering they weren't popular actors. Zulfi looks every inch the prince. Pooja Batra is absolutely fantastic as Nur Jahan- makes you wish there were more scenes of her. Arbaaz Ali, Vaquar Sheikh and Arbaaz Khan were good! Kim Sharma made the perfect spoilt princess and Sonya Jehan was good considering this is her first film! The songs were beautiful! Nicely picturised. This film is for all those who want a break from the commercialised basically cheap kind of films being made nowadays in Bollywood! Don't know about the fate of its DVD release. Heard it was suppose to release again! Would definitely watch it again.
