Taj Mahal

Again a love story, Taj Mahal (1963) was the story of Jehangir (Pradeep Kumar) and his love Mumtaz Mahal (Bina Rai). This black and white film, directed by M Sadiq, was a huge success at the box-office. The film was further aided by a great musical score such as Jo Vada Kiya Woh Nibhana Padega, Jo Baat Tujhme Hai Teri Tasveer Main Nahin and Jurm-e-Ulfat pe Log Humein Saza Dete Hain.

The new ĎTaj Mahalí movie that was released in 2005 was a dud. It didnít live up to the original Taj Mahal. The new movie which was reportedly made on a mutli-crore budget and tried hard to authentically recreate the Mughal era through sets, royal costumes and jewellery, was disappointing. Starring actors like Zulfi Sayed, Sonya Jehan, Arbaaz Khan, Pooja Batra and Kabir Bedi, the new Taj Mahal sunk badly at the BO.
