Jodhaa Akbar is a sixteenth century love story about a marriage of alliance that gave birth to true love between a great Mughal Emperor, Akbar and a Rajput princess, Jodhaa. Politically, success knew no bounds for Emperor Akbar, After having secured the Hindu Kush, he furthered his realm by conquest until his empire extended from Afghanistan to the Bay of Bengal, and from the Himalayas to the Godhavari River. Through a shrewd blend of tolerance, generosity and force, Akbar won the allegiance of the Rajputs, the most belligerent Hindus. But little did Akbar know that when he married Jodhaa, a fiery Rajput princess, in order to further strengthen his relations with the Rajputs, he would in turn be embarking upon a new journey - the journey of true love. The daughter of King Bharmal of Amer, Jodhaa resented being reduced to a mere political pawn in this marriage of alliance, and Akbar's biggest challenge now did not merely lie in winning battles, but in winning the love of Jodhaa - a ...

The district administration imposed a ban on the screening of Jodhaa Akbar in Ambala, India following protests by members of the Rajput community who alleged that historical facts had been distorted in the film. They believe that Jodhaa was Akbar's daughter-in-law and not his wife. See more »
In the scene where Jalal goes to Amer for the first time to take back Jodha, one of the subordinates of Jodha named Madhavi, while watching him through window, comments that "Mujhe to ab bhi vishwas nahi ho raha", meaning "I still can't believe this". This is clearly being spoken in Gujrati accent. It seems unlikely that a small kingdom of Amer (In present day Rajasthan) would have hired domestic help from Gujarat. See more »

[Akbar and Jodhaa, in private argument]
Jalaluddin Mohammad Akbar:
I don't understand?
No, you don't! You know how to wage war and conquer. But do not know how to rule.
Jalaluddin Mohammad Akbar:
What did you say?
That you have only conquered me, but not won my heart yet... you should have at least tried to know what really happened. But the truth is that you are far removed from reality. You do not know how to win hearts. To do that, you need to look into their minds, discover their little ...

A timeless classic. Full marks to the director and the cast.
Hrithik is perfection personified as usual. This would be Ash's best performance till date as she does not giggle needlessly or overact at any point.
The supporting cast has done a great job too - especially Punam Sinha and Nikitin. A slight regret is that Sonu Sood should have had a stronger personality for his background, but it is does not impact the movie in any way.
The music is endearing. It will catch up on you as you listen to it a couple of times.
Avoid watching pirated online versions and go watch it in a theater. A pirated version simply cannot capture the grandeur of this movie.
