Considered one of the great classical epic films of Bollywood, Mughal-e Azam set the standard for many Bollywood films to follow. The story follows Prince Salim as he falls in love with a court dancer and rebels against his father, the Emperor Akbar. The artistry of the film is shown through the handcrafted costumes and jewelry made by top artisans, the careful attention to historical detail, and the highly regarded soundtrack inspired by Indian classical and folk music. In Hindi w/ English subtitles. 177 min. Part of the Ackland Film Forum’s “Art of Bollywood” film series.
