Watch Shiraz (1928)

A historical romance in the Mughal Empire. Selima (Enakshi) is a princess founded by a potter and loved by her brother Shiraz (Rai). She is kidnapped and sold as a slave to Prince Khurram, later Emperor Shah Jehan (Roy), who falls in love with her, to the disappointment of the cunning Dalia (Seeta Devi). When Selima is caught in Shiraz, the young man is sentenced to trample an elephant. The trailer reveals Selima's royal status and rescues her brother, marries the prince and becomes empress Mumtaz Mahal, while Dalia is banned for tampering with Selima. When Selima dies (1629), the emperor builds her monument to the design of the old and blind Shiraz Taj Mahal. The film contains many passionate kiss scenes.... Show more

For me Shiraz - was the biggest surprise of the year 1928. The term 'Best' is as you know a relative term. What you or I consider as the best may not even be in someone else's list. So the general rule is to proclaim the one which majority of the folks like as the best. Nevertheless, according to me the following can be regarded as some of the finest movie ever made. I sat for a long time after the end of Shiraz, reflecting on my thoughts. There are some scenes in this movie that I will remember them until I die. Every single performance is incredible. Not to mention that it has the best music in a movie. The whole movie is still very relaxing and motivating. I bought this movie in blu-ray quality last time, so I decided to upload full movie here.... Show more
