BUT what pained me a lot and made me sad was watching Rajput killing in the beginning, and the character of Bhairon singh..Jodha's father..such a spineless person, Rajput are not like that, and what made it worse was, Kulbhushan Kharbanda..may be if it was played by some other good actor.would have been tolerable. In worst circumstances, Rajput may bow, but they never loose their dignity and here this person was looking like a peon and the same about her mother...Suhasini mulay..i cant imagine a Rajputani suggesting her daughter to cheat--Rajput are known for their AAN BAAN SHAAN, they were grand even in their fall.Can we ever forget Padmini or Rana Pratap?
Then i have a big grouse against the historians who glamourised a Mughal, arent we being too generous to call an invader--AKBAR THE GREAT.Our own people like Rana pratap had to eat the rotis of grass and his children died of hunger and why? because of Akbar.An outsider comes here, rules us and just because he is a little more kind than others and is not very cruel should we support him.Where is our SWARAJYA? Then we shouldnt blame the Britishers even, because some of them were very good and did something good for our country and people. Why do we highlight only Akbar, Tipu,why not Shivaji,Ranapratap,Handa raani, Padmini. I can never forget that Mughals invaded us ,looted our property and women,destroyed our monuments, even On Kutub Minar it is written that it was a hindu structure or something like that converted into a minar.But we never understand..like Pakistan is helping the terrorists against us and our products are being endorsed by Pakistanis...i wud never buy anything they endorse.
BTW I never read any statement by--Shabana Azmi, Amar Singh, Raj Thackerey, Dilip Kumar on Mumbai terrorist strike? May be not important enough for them.
Jodha Akbar is good as a love story between different religions but given historic relevance--though they dont claim to be realist, but once u name them Jodha and Akbar...it gets its history automatically.
