the film…

Mughal-e-Azam defines Indian cinema in a way that no other movie can. It is an epic historical drama with romance at its core. It is a marvel directed by K.Asif with the finest actors of the era, which created magic with its beautiful songs and intense, emotional storyline. The story revolved around two lovers and one antagonist who didn’t approve of the love. The classic broke many records and gave us a chance to witness a grandeur never seen before in an Indian movie. It was, is and will always be a strong pillar of Indian cinema…

We met up with the brain & soul behind Minimal Movie Posters India and got talking on how would the poster of Mughal-e-Azam be like if created using minimal graphics & photos. They delighted us by creating one just for us!

– The Indian Trumpet’s Debut Edition

the poster…

On the left, the figures reflect Prince Salim (Dilip Kumar) and Anarkali’s (Madhubala) deep love for each other, overlooking the fact that Salim was a Prince and Anarkali just another court dancer. Emperor Akbar, portrayed by Prithviraj Kapoor, wasn’t happy with the love affair between the two unequals, which is displayed on the right. The centre part of the poster depicts a heart, which is made using the texture of the wall, in which Anarkali was sentenced to entombment alive.

Keep blowing the Trumpet! This & many more stories await in the pages!
