Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Jodhaa Akbar (REGION 0)[DVD] [NTSC] (DVD)I saw this film twice at the cinema. It tells the immortal story of Akbar, the greatest Mughul Emporer, as well as the circumstances surrounding his meeting, marriage and early life with his new Hindu wife, Jodhaa. The two protagonists do stirling work of portraying their characters and have great chemistry - something that is absolutely needed in a film such as this. It left me with such good feelings after seeing it I will be looking to buy the DVD when released. The only downside of the DVD that could seriously make me rethink my purchase is the running time. It is advertised as 120 minutes on Amazon. At the cinema, the film was three and a half hours (210 minutes)long. This may seem a long time to some but it flew by and every part of the film was needed to the proper flow, pacing and development of the story. I sincerely dread to think where they have made the cuts which is nearly an hour lost. Too much for a film of this calibre which really should be released on DVD at the same running time as in the cinema.

Just replying to your post from May. This might be of no use to you now but if you still want to get this film I would highly recommend the three-disc limited edition. It's excellent!
