A 2008 Bollywood period movie that rivals ''Titanic'' in extravagance. The movie was made with a 400 million Rs. budget to support elaborate sets, period costumes and jewelery, battle scenes, A-list actors, and [[FilmiMusic Rahman]]. The story centers around sixteenth century Mughal Emperor Akbar (played by dreamy, green-eyed Hritik Roshan) and his Rajput wife, Jodhaa (played by Creator/AishwaryaRai's [[EverythingsSparklyWithJewelry jewelry]]). The two are forced into marriage because Akbar wanted the Rajputs' allegiance. Akbar is Muslim and Jodhaa is Hindu, but despite their differences they slowly (and [[strike:predictably]] charmingly) fall in love. As the romance progresses and Jodhaa becomes more influential, vague political tension builds in Akbar's court. ''Very'' Abusive of the ErmineCapeEffect.

* HistoricalBeautyUpdate: Likely for Jodhaa, Akbar, Jodhaa and certainly for Akbar. Little is known about the real Mariam-uz-Zamani (the name used for Jodhaa in contemporary accounts of Akbar's reign), and the descriptions we have Akbar present him as more formidable than attractive. The side characters probably some got hit with a pretty big dose of the supporting players.this too.

* [[HollywoodHistory Bollywood History]]: The opening says in so many words that this is a poorly-documented period of history, and that [[ArtisticLicense this film was going to try and capture the essence of the story]], [[BroadStrokes even if not every detail was factual]].



* DawsonCasting : Jodhaa and Akbar were both around twenty when married. They are played by actors in their thirties here.
