This is a five-star film that has been wretchedly colorized. Even though Asif had wanted the film in color, I am quite confident that he didn't want it to look like a child had colored it in with glow-in-the-dark crayons. Heinous.

Incredible movie! Most expensive film in Indian history (adjusted for inflation). Filming started in 1944, then suspended due to the death of the leading man (and then independence and partition), and it was released in 1960. 9 years into shooting, it became possible to film in colour, so some of the scenes were shot in colour. The director (K. Asif) wanted to re-shoot the rest of the movie, but wasn't able to secure funding, so the rest of the movie remained black & white. In 2004, it was re-colorized and re-released in cinemas. The love between Dilip Kumar and Madhubala is legendary, but her father was opposed to the union so she broke it off. After Mughal-e-Azam, her heart condition kept her bedridden for 9 years, and she died in 1969 at the age of 36.
