K. Asif 's magnum opus has gained a cult status over the years. Considered to be one of the most iconic and landmark films in the history of Hindi cinema, Mughal-E-Azam set the standards high. Starring Dilip Kumar, Madhubala and Prithviraj Kapoor, this epic is known for its direction, music, sets, costumes and also for the lead pair: Madhubala and Dilip Kumar. Sweeping all major awards, Mughal -E-Azam revolves around the story of Mughal Emperor Salim and his love for a court dancer - Anarkali and how their romance angers Salim's father Akbar. While this story is a popular one that was depicted with grandeur on the silver screen, here are some lesser known facts about the film. See more »
[Anarkali has been sent to prison]
Treat me as a father and not as a king and give me my Anarkali!
Though I am a beloved father to a kind son, I can't ignore the duties of an emperor. I cannot change the destiny of India for my son's love.
Times change, emperors change, destinies change... but when love grips a person, that person does not change!
Salim, you must change, you must!

The original version is in B/W and only one song 'Pyar kiya to darna kya...' was shot in color as most of the film (by the time color technology was available) was complete. This was at the end of almost 10 years that the film was being completed. However, the year 2004 re-release is re-mastered from the original B/W version to Color with Dolby Digital sound and some visual enhancements. See more »
Splendid portrayal of communal harmony of Medieval India
I have seen it several times. Excellent performance by each & every character "Mughal Emperor Akbar - Zealous Prithiviraj", "Maharani Jodha Bai - Motherly Durga Khote", "Prince Salim -Bold Dilip Kumar", "Anarkali Servant Girl - Beautiful Madhubala".
Carefully made & splendid effort by team to portray the communal harmony enjoyed by people of those times. The best part is the friendship of Durjan (Ajit) and Prince Salim, he sacrifices life for the honor of Prince.
Prithiviraj Kapoor gets full points for his role as a emperor who keeps his promises made to his subjects, adamant/uncompromising to lower the dignity of his empire. His dialog with Prince on refusal to accept slave girl as future Queen of Hindustan "Malum Hua! Ek rakkasa (dancer) ko tum Hindustan ki malika (Queen) banana chahte ho?."
