Ashutosh Gowariker’s epic historical romance Jodhaa Akbar tells the story of how the Mughal emperor Akbar found his match in the princess he marries for political reasons. In order to convince the Rajputs that he was worthy of their fealty, the shrewd leader Akbar marries their princess, Jodhaa. Soon he develops true feeling for the woman, who feels no need to consider herself inferior in any way to her husband.
“Jodhaa Akbar, a historical romance directed by Ashutosh Gowariker, is filmmaking on the grand scale of Cecil B. DeMille, with romance, stirring battles, a cast of thousands and enough elephants and gold to sink the Titanic.”
