This movie by K Asif is considered as one of the all time greats of Bollywood (Indian Film Industry). It was shot in the 60 for a budget of $6 million when the average movie in those days cost about $600000. The storytelling is great and the sets are spectacular. This movie was originally partially shot in color and partially in B&W. The DVD is a remastered version of the movie converted into color with a 7 track dolby sound. A must watch for people who love old history based mega movies.
It is one of the finest pieces of Indian Cinema. It is an epic scale movie and transcends all superlatives used to describe a good movie. The performances from the Actors Dilip Kumar/Prithviraj Chauhan and actress is top-notch and flawless. The sets are beautiful and as glamorous as a Mughal Emperor's palace would be. One of the movies strongest asset is dialgouge, writeen in flowing urdu. I strongly recommend this movie to anyone who likes bollywood movies/indian history
Historically sort of the Indian "Gone With the Wind", this huge 3 hour epic started slowly for me, feeling awkward, dated, and a little stagy. But then I got swept up in this story of a prince defying his father for loveof a woman, and found myself really enjoying it, and wanting to see how the story would turn out. Some amazing set design, and some beautiful songs, along with often really strong cinematography. Note, 2 versions of film exist. It was originally released in 1960, mostly in black and white, but with two reels in color. Filmmaker Asif had wanted to make the whole film in color, but lacked the funds. In 2004 it was re-released in a version that colorized the black and white reels. While that would normally be a film sacrilege to me, in this case it was done with loving care, at great expense, and with the intention of finishing the film the way Asif wanted. I actually own both versions and find both quite satisfying.
