Every lion has a day in life when he is worst than a dog Every dog has a day in life when he feels like a lion Akbar and Jodha were two strong personalities in their times. Akbar had a vision of uniting all religions for which he had a respect for all religions, place for all kind of people, strong mission, concrete plans and open mindedness.
Hrithik has become a legend in him by now, in selecting a role, in playing a role in his unique style, in acting, in performance, in real life… Aishwarya has performed well but not the best of her class. She was not as free in her performance as she was in D2.
If we take comparison following shall be the chart (our of 5): Act Hrithik Aishwarya Dialogue delivery 5/5 4/5 Acting 5/5 3.5/5 Overall Performance 5/5 4/5 Costumes 4.5 5/5 Ashutosh Gowarikar has really taken the courage to get into conflict about the subject and story but he has come out of it very beautifully without any mull over the issue. Lyrics by Javed Akhtar are excellent same as the music by A R Rahman.
The best part of the movie is cinematography, Hrithik and the storyline. It is a soft, mild story with hard incidents embedded in-between appropriately. Few scenes to highlight: 1. Akbar’s (Hrithik’s) act of taming an elephant 2. Jodha’s conditions for marrying Akbar 3. Akbar’s acceptance of Jodha’s conditions and fulfilling them 4. Akbar’s last scene fight 5. All fights 6. Akbar’s refusal to accept his mentor’s order to kill his oponent 7. Dialogues 8. Lyrics
