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 »

Taj Mahal is superb film made for world audience.
3 January 2006 | by See all my reviews

I saw Taj Mahal with many of my American friends who had never seen Indian movies. They were fully involved in the film up to the end, their impression that only Hollywood can make good films was shattered (films like Veer Zara will confirm this belief). Akbar Khan has made this film for the world audience. They loved the music and surprised that an Indian composer (Naushad) can compose fabulous symphonic music. The critics in the Indian media have slaughtered this film, I am shocked at their motivation to do so.

One should see and appreciate the director's concept and presentation; instead the negative critics are writing their own script and treatment in an attempt to slaughter this film. It is clear that Akbar Khan is one of the top directors in the world if one views this film with out any prejudice, and background music by Naushad is his best ever.

One should see this film not just once, but many times.
