Jodhaa Akbar

Synopsis: Jodhaa Akbar is a sixteenth century love story about a marriage of alliance that gave birth to true love between a great Mughal Emperor, Akbar and a Rajput princess, Jodhaa. Politically, success knew no bounds for Emperor Akbar, After having secured the Hindu Kush, he furthered his realm by conquest until his empire extended from Afghanistan to the Bay of Bengal, and from the Himalayas to the Godhavari River. Through a shrewd blend of tolerance, generosity and force, Akbar won the allegiance of the Rajputs, the most belligerent Hindus. But little did Akbar know that when he married Jodhaa, a fiery Rajput princess, in order to further strengthen his relations with the Rajputs, he would in turn be embarking upon a new journey - the journey of true love. The daughter of King Bharmal of Amer, Jodhaa resented being reduced to a mere political pawn in this marriage of alliance, and Akbar's biggest challenge now did not merely lie in winning battles, but in winning the love of Jodhaa - a love

This is Hindustan!

History is witness to many...

...dynasties who have

ruled with sword and blood,

Since 1011 AD, countless invaders...

...have ravaged and plundered this land,

And then came, the Mughals,

They made India their home,

giving it love and respect,

Founded by Babur, the Mughal Dynasty

passed from Humayun to his son, Akbar,

Among all the Mughal Emperors,

Akbar achieved the greatest heights -

Jalaluddin Mohammad Akbar!

The first Mughal Emperor

to be born on Indian soil...

...Akbar was born in

a Hindu Rajput home,

And there was Princess Jodhaa...

...who was also born in Rajputana,

In Amer,

Daughter of King Bharmal...

...and Queen Padmavati,

Jodhaa was betrothed... Prince Ratan

Singh of Ajabgarh,

The Rajputs - were taught

the art of combat from childhood... protect their

families and homes...

...and kingdom!

Maan Singh!

Brother Sujamal!

Among the warriors,

was Prince Sujamal...

...Jodhaa's cousin,

Sujamal loved Jodhaa like a sister,

He was by her side

whenever she beckoned,

You can make a better painting!

Bharmal was crowned King,

following the demise of Sujamal's father,

Sujamal was left isolated...

...because his destiny

would take him far from Amer,

Princess Jodhaa's future

too would lead her...

...away from

the Rajputana provinces,

And now, the year is 1555!

The Mughal dynasty

had almost ended...

...following Emperor Humayun's

accidental death,

Taking advantage of the situation,

King Hemu seized the Delhi throne,

A great battle ensued... in Panipat!

On one side was King Hemu...

...with an army twice the size

of the Mughal army,

On the other side...

...was Bairam Khan,

Emperor Humayun's loyal general...

...who was training the 13 year-old

Jalaluddin to take on his father's mantle,

You must consolidate Hindustan!

Your courage will lead to victory.

I, Bairam Khan, loyal servant

to the Mughal dynasty...

...remind you once again...

...the future of the Mughals

is in your hands.

Until he breathed his last, your father

Emperor Humayun, had only one dream -

To see the Mughal flag

flying over Hindustan.

God willing, it will be you,

who will fulfill his dream!

Long live Emperor Jalaluddin Mohammad!

Prepare to attack!

If we can kill King Hemu,

his army will scatter.

Hemu's eyes alone are exposed,

unprotected by armour.

Appoint an archer who must

strike him in the eye.

Soldiers and riders! Charge!

Prepare to charge!

Your glorious Majesty!

For the first time, today,

allow your sword to prove its worth.

Behead the traitor...

...and bring glory to the Ghazi name!

He is worse than a dead man, Khan Baba.

How can I strike him?

If you do not, the army will take it amiss...

...and not believe you are a true Ghazi.

Do as I bid!


My brave Mughal soldiers!

Like his ancestors...

...our Emperor Jalaluddin Mohammad too,

is a true Ghazi!

A glorious future to the young Emperor!

This is how Bairam Khan regained

the Delhi throne for the young Emperor,

For the next six years, Bairam Khan

tried consolidating Hindustan... sending emissaries with

proclamations to neighbouring provinces,

This decree has been sent by

Emperor Jalaluddin Mohammad!

Align your kingdom,

within a month to the Mughal Empire!

And as a loyal subject,

pay the Jaziya tax and other taxes.

If you reject the Emperor's decree...

...then you will face Jalaluddin's wrath!

This disobedience will be deemed a crime.

Offenders and their kingdoms

will be annihilated.

By decree of the Emperor of Hindustan...

...Jalaluddin Mohammad!

Tell your Emperor,
