2004: The End Credits play the song 'Pyaar Kiya To Darna Kya' and its 1960 end credits are adjacent to the 2004 (Technicians) credits. See more »
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 »
Unsympathetic to today's recycled films, while praising the classic vision of K. Asif
Haha -- when I see comments that put Kuch Kuch Hota Hain or any other formulaic hindi flick as "the best film ever" they obviously didn't see K. Asif's vision of Mughal-e-Azam. From Prithviraj Kapoor's magnificent rendering of the imposing Emperor Akbar to Dalip Kumar's obvious love for the spectacular Madhubhala. The exquisite Urdu dialogues is of course not for the neophyte. But for those that can appreciate the finer things in life -- not some cloying Hum Apke Hain Kaun or Shah Rukh Khan's obsession with bleeding and overacting in every single film -- Mughal-e-Azam fits the bill perfectly.
