Jodhaa Akbar (Three-Disc Collector's Edition)

Buy the three-disc Collectors' Edition released by Utv instead.
Running time is 209 minutes in Widescreen NTSC format. English and Arabic subtitles are available even for the songs. The picture and sound are spectacular.
The dvd however is a complete flop. It is not even anamorphic widescreen. When it is stretched to fill your widescreen tv, the picture becomes heavily pixelated, and the subtitles get cut off!! I'm hoping that UTV will correct this issue, and hopefully in the future, release this film on Blu-ray.
Somehow the studio (accidentally or maybe deliberately) messed up with the 'pre-release dvd' version of this movie (as the actual release date is 28/04/08) and the bad version of this dvd has propagated throughout.
Really don't waste your time with these pirated DVDs.
Those who say they did not find parts missing clearly did not see this movie in theatres!
The movie is great; but, this DVD is very bad!
My favorite thing about this movie is Aishwarya Rai (now Aishwarya Rai-Bachchan). This is an actress who starred in this decades' best Hindi film thus far ("Devdas"), and also headlined the best Bengali film of the decade (the underrated "Chokher Bali"). I saw it for her, and rediscovered the worlds' most beautiful woman. Seriously, is she even human? Aishwarya is beyond a perfect being - its as if the heavens and the stars and some alien DNA all combined to create one spectacular vision. Take it from me - no human woman, before or after, will ever look as good as Aishwarya does in this film. And re-reading that line, Im afraid it still doesn't do justice to her unsurpassed beauty. Indian women are where its at.
Hrithik Roshan plays the King Akbar, but I found much to like about this otherwise wooden actor. The film has a few scenes that stand out way after the movie is over, and if you're into researching and studying film as a passion or a hobby, this movie is tailormade to cater to your sensibilities. Despite both actors being in their mid-30s, their unique love story burns with the incandescence of a teenage romance.Read more ›
I was awestruck watching this movie. The acting was outstanding on the level of Best Actor for Roshon. As a lay person I would not notice technical things but the overall scope of the film. It was lavish and gave a good idea of what life was like in that time and place as far as the cultural differences and the political intrigue. I have nothing but raves for this movie and any criticism for it would be by someone who would never appreciate a movie of this type in the first place.
