In Brazil, there are veryfew Indian movies released on DVD, but all of them are excellent."Asoka" is one of the best, with a beautiful romance, very dramaticsituations and great actions scenes, and a touching conclusion. Theactress Karriena Kapoor is extremely beautiful and sexy, and has agreat chemistry with Shah Rukh Khan. The boy Sooraj Balaji has a greatperformance in the role of a prince. Unfortunately the lyrics of thesongs have not been translated in the Brazilian DVD. From otherBolywood movies, I am sure that the songs are very important, sincethey always tell something about the feelings of the characters in thatmoment. By the way, the music score is excellent. My vote is ten.<br><br>Title (Brazil): "Asoka"
