With the release of Jodhaa Akbar around the corner, I thought we should revisit Mughal-E-Azam which was once the biggest film Bollywood had produced. I personally think it still is the biggest. Starring Dilip Kumar as Prince Salim, Madhubala as Anarkali and Prithviraj Kapoor in his biggest role ever as the Mughal emperor Akbar, it tells the love story of Prince Salim and Anarkali, a slave. It really is a must see film but you probably already know that.
Music of Mughale-E-Azam is by Naushad Ali who has composed some of the best songs of the Golden Era of Bollywood. The most notable songs of this album are Pyar Kiya To Darna Kya and Teri Mehfil Mein. You really need to watch the movie to appreciate the lyrics of these songs.
