However, Jodhaa Akbar does not have much to cheer about and fails to go an extra distance.
Taran Adarsh, SIFY
Very strongly recommended!

No we aren't going to quibble with history here because Jodhaa-Akbar is a plain and simple love story between a man named Akbar and a girl named Jodhaa.

And that's what makes the soundtrack of this history-inspired romance a musical conquest.
Sukanya Verma, Rediff 
AR Rahman’s lilting music; Ashutosh Gowariker’s masterful direction; two supreme stars that look like they’ve been living their roles forever. If one expects the world of Jodhaa Akbar, it’s not without reason.

Ashutosh Gowarikar showcases his most ambitious project to date about a ruler that goes through his own journey of greatness and ends up finding true love.
Shruti Bhasin, Planet Bollywood
The next time he should try doing something very radical for him: make a two hour long, seamless but a pulsating film that has all the passion and intrigue of his previous films.
Arthur J Pais, Rediff 
However contrary to its title, it's much more than the relationship between Mughal king Akbar and his wife Jodha.

After several reshuffling of dates and over 2 years in the making , UTV and Ashutosh Gowarikar bring to you JodhaaAkbar a complete epic in itself. Any comparisons with Mughal-E-Azam or Ashutosh's previous piece of work should be strictly avoided.
