Description

The Maharaja of Jodhpur is a masterful film on Gaj Singh II of Marwar - Jodhpur.

With exclusive footage of and interviews with members of the royal family; and in particular the Maharaja himself; director Anu Malhotra tells the story of "the boy who-would-be-king", enthroned at age 4, his trials and tribulations over the tumultuous years of historical change, and of his quest to be a "Modern Maharaja".

This extravagantdocu-feature was filmed over a year and showcases the life and lifestyle of the Gaj Singh II, along with Jodhpur's incredible living traditions, vibrant festivals, ceremonial pageantry and its regal splendor.

The Royal Durbar - which celebrates the 50th year of his coronation - a glittering historical occasion.
Akha Teej Durbar - when the Rathore's sip saffron water (formerly opium), from their Maharaja's palm.
Dusshera Durbar - where ties with the Rathore clan are renewed with the anointing of swords, by the Maharaja.
Birthday Celebrations - formal durbars, royal processions and ritual greetings by women, dressed in their traditional best.
A glamorous royal lifestyle - polo, vintage cars, courtly dance performances, and exclusive footage from the "Raj" era of princely India.

For the fist time, a film gains unique access to the royal family, introducing the charismatic Maharaja, the indomitable Rajmata Krishna Kumari, the effervescent Maharani Hemlata Rajye, the charming Princess Shivranjani Rajye and 'Prince of Hearts' Yuvraj Shivraj Singh.

'The Maharaja of Jophpur' has been feted and screened in 15 International Film Festivals through 2004-2006 and was the opening film of the Miami Film Festival in 2004. It premiered in 2004 at the Nehru Centre in London.
