Mughal-E-Azam: Gets wonderful in Colour!

This Diwali, I watched Mughal-E-Azam in color! It took about 30 million rupees ($660,000) to colourize the original. And I should tell you it's a must-watch movie! The movie is coloured so well that no one can say it was originally a B&W movie. And of course the movie itself is also *AMAZING*. If you haven’t seen it, go for it NOW! If you like Songs or like Direction, or like Acting, or like Dresses, or like Movie Sets, or like Lyrics, or like Dialogues, or, like Love Stories, or (not to mention) love Madhubala [1] and [2], then let me tell you that this one has it all, it indeed is a FEAST waiting to be devoured! Many of the movies have focused on the ill-fated love between Mughal Prince, Salim (Dilip Kumar) and courtesan Anarkali (Madhubala) but none, till date, have come close to the grandeur of Mughal-E-Azam! I personally consider it to be one of the most meticulosuly directed movie ever made in Bollywood. Of the many facts about the movie, the stunning one is that it took well over a decade to complete it (somewhere around in 1960s), and you will notice no difference in looks of any of the characters! Isn't that splendid! What the hell ... , No!!! Well, then check out for yourself and come back with your comments, I'm waiting to hear from you!
