Expect the Unexpected.
The movie was not hyped. Infact eveyone said its gonna bomb but I think its one of the most beautiful movies I have seen.
The critics have gone totally crazy, they are selfish and they don't even deserve to be called critics. DT said that an emperor is doing a jig at his own wedding. Well open your eyes buddy, is that really a dance??? I'm shocked DT hires such people who calls that a boogie woogie. It's the magic of his God that enchants him, he dances because he is meditating and so are the others. Hrithik Roshan's acting is par excellence, he has worked hard and the role of Jalaluddin Muhammad Akbar is as charismatic as it should be. The places he has to be soft he is as soft as a feather but when he is a tyrant- nobody's business. Aishwarya Rai has acted well in limits, her independence and her want of freedom comes out well without making us feel it was unusual in 1500 BC.
The screenplay is not isolated, its into segments but Gowarikar has bound them and keeps the movie going on without exhausting the audience for 3 hours 20 minutes. The music is amazing, songs emerge only when required and the rest of the job is fulfilled by the background music fillers. The cinematography is beautiful- just one word. The sets, jewelry are already in news.
About the whole 'bawaal' going on about the film, only those are doing it who are unemployed and those who have no brains. Watch the movie with the spirit of just watching a movie. Its entertainment and not a reason to start bringing the dead alive. there is absolutely nothing controversial about it.

hmmm the length of the movie was one of the reasons i didn't want to see it , i thought i will call for the dvd later... the other reason was that hrithik won't be dancing and i think its a crime to make this guy NOT DANCE! he is brilliant. third reason was that i simply don't think much of aishwarya rai bachchan's acting capabilities.. and i'd rather see the jewellery in a showroom..

BUT after reading this review of yours, i feel like watching it .. i will make sure i get good seats cuz' sitting for 3 hrs 40 mins is not a piece of cake for a fidgety-restless woman like me..

sunday probably!
