a mughal emperor discovers his love in rajput princess to whom he married just as result of an alliance. usually directors loose plot when they make a historic film in India but here ashutosh holds his point.the film although chooses a historical backdrop but main theme is to show that love exists beyond barriers and religions.so pin-pointing out historical inaccuracies in a movie like this will be unfair.
however, script had to be more strong.the convas is beautiful considering it's budget.And the more we talk about performances the less will it be because the performances are superb.HRITHIK ROSHAN is an actor with infinite expressions , especially in this movie his eyes speak more than his dialogues and most importantly it's not that easy to speak urdu with that emphasis.
overall if you plan to watch a movie with family it's a worth watch.it's perfect for your DVD collection.
