Jodhaa Akbar
Ashutosh Gowariker, 2008, India; 213m
 

Enlightened rule never looked so good as in this sixteenth-century love story between the revered Emperor Akbar (Hrithik Roshan) and feisty Rajput princess, Jodhaa (the stunning Aishwarya Rai). Reviving the majestic splendor of the Historical genre, Gowariker (Lagaan) unleashes battling armies and grand romance in grand palaces, all set to a score by A.R. Rahman. But it’s also a fascinating modern interpretation of the story of Akbar—committed to Sufi principles yet respectful of Hindu traditions—and Jodhaa, whose sense of self-respect actively contributes to Akbar’s enlightened vision.
