Disha my dear,

Can you tell me which is the Jodha-Akbar theme song that is played whenever they are linked in a scene, what they would call a leitmotif in the West? It is absolutely lovely, and I have of course heard it before, but  I cannot place it now. Thanks in advance.

Firstly, WOW. We went from 47th rank or something like that to 13. 
So yeah!!!!

I will let you know right from the start. This thread is not going to be popular considering everyone seems to love Rajat so much. I just hope I don't get bashed like I used to in QB and IPK and MB forum when I state how I truly feel. 
Now getting back to the reason I made the thread. I have been told that Rajat is an amazing actor by practically everyone on this forum. I have heard he acted very well in his other historical shows. And I am sure he did, but I am finding his portrayal of Akbar lacking. I find it very annoying the way he forever stands with his hands behind his back. I understand that he is a shehenshah, but the way he stands like that is annoying. I liked today's episode, but I couldn't help but feel distracted by Rajat's rigid stance. When he bent over to pick up the payal...even then one of his hands were behind his back. Wouldn't it be more natural to just flow...to be fluid...to take that hand from behind your back and put it on your knee while bending down? I don't know why this is so irksome to me but it just is.

Plus, I am scared of his bulging eyes. Scared that one of these days his eyeballs are going to pop out of his socket. 
I don't know about his acting in the past historical shows because I have not watched them, but all I can speak of is what I see on my tv, rather laptop, screen. I feel like he is trying to hard to portray Akbar's ruthlessness and in doing so he is looking a bit absurd to me. He comes off too rigid. He needs to loosen up a bit. He needs to not crook his head everytime he is angry or fascinated (like he did today when Jodha was looking at him in the water). 
When you use the same expressions everytime to portray a feeling...it becomes repetitive. 
Maybe I am being too harsh, but this is simply how I feel. I actually really like Jodha's acting. I would have thought I would have a problem with Paridhi considering she is fairly new compared to Rajat. Maybe he is just having a hard time playing a larger than life negative character. I believe he has always played a positive character (with the exception of Tere Liye) so it may be hard for him. 

One thing I liked though was how his eyes softened up when he had the payal in his hands after he got it out of the fire. The portrayal of someone smitten by the beauty of a woman was clear on his face when his eyes softened up like butter. It's his rigidity that I have a problem with. 

EDIT- So a while has passed since I made this thread and I have seen that Rajat has improved. I was always willing to give him time because well this is my favorite show right now. He needs some more improvement in my opinion, but I am sure with time he will adjust to his role. Rajat does have a majestic air that does him well since he is Akbar, but he just needs a few more improvements. Many have pointed out that the directors may be at fault here, which may very well be true. 

Good to read the post and agree 100% about 'acting' of person playing Akbar. Generally only good things are written or expected to be written in the posts.

Some body has to really tell the actor that to portray a 'bad/ evil' man; one need not do bad 'acting'! All his mannerisms reminds me of 'mogambo'!
