Exactly...if they used his evil smirk sparingly, it would be much more effective.
The editing is quite bad...this obsession they have with randomly throwing in shots of Akbar when Jodha's monologue is going on or Jodha's mother is thinking about the prophecy...it just looks weird...like in today's epi they were showing shots of Akbar in his blue outfit during one of the Jodha scenes in Amer when the voiceover was saying something about history choosing these two to rewrite India's history or something...then a minute later they switch to a scene in the tent when Akbar is back in his bronze/brown outfit getting his feet washed by some servant...so the back and forth like this ends up being jarring and lacking flow.
I know this is Ekta so there isn't much point expecting great production values...but I hope the editing improves somewhat atleast
Also not to compare but the production values of Maharana Pratap are so much better...the outfits of the queens in that show look like clothes worthy of queens...in this show Jodha and the rest of the outfits of the women of Amer look like they were choried from the wardrobe of Anandi of BV...
...SHE looks more royal than the princess Jodha of this show
