This gloriously romantic film, set in the 16th century during the Mughal Empire, follows a love affair between Prince Salim and dancer Anarkali, which incites the King’s anger and sparks a war between father and son. The film’s gorgeous soundtrack, inspired by Indian classical and folk music, is often cited as one of the finest in Bollywood history.
