What specific cultural values are inherent in the film which differs from mainstream American films?
The film, Jodhaa Akbar, is a love story, which represents cultural values of the Indian culture, through the demonstration of the special relationship shared by the couple, Jodhaa and Akbar. Firstly, the film presented the supremacy of arranged marriages in the specified culture, which differs from values presented in American films regarding Love. Secondly, another value presented about the Indian culture is, the dominance of men, in their relationships and society
The cultural value inherent in the film is strong belief in the population in arranged marriages, which is completely different from values presented in mainstream American films, because, usually it presents the value of progressive love, leading to marriage, therefore a love marriage. In the film, Jodhaa Akbar, the director has used positioning and salience, in order to, present his perception of the historical love story of the couple.
