JODHA AKBAR emerges winner despite protests

Historical epics have never found fancy of Gen X audiences and have always been battered for their off beat subject. Ashutosh Gowarikar’s much acclaimed JODHA AKBAR had “cold” hype and everybody said that “Thanda matlab Jodha Akbar” before the release of the film. It faced severe criticism and was ripped off from the screen in many states of India. Despite all such hate, resentment and protests, the film has emerged winner on almost every commercial front. The reports from overseas markets were encouraging while in multiplexes it maintains its strong march. The film enjoyed the status of being the only “big” releases as the following two weeks went dry and empty.
