If I had not known that this film was based on the 'MahaBharat', I would not have been able to sit through this film. The 'MahaBharat' is one of India's greatest epics, and was also made as a very successful TV series. The story is quite lengthy, and I did not expect the makers of this film to include everything into this film. However, I did not expect them to make such a slow-paced and boring film either.
I was left wondering how you could condense such an action-oriented epic story into a three-hour sleep-fest. The motivations of the characters were not clearly stated, and the enmity between them seemed forced.
Some of the scenes which should have been emotion-wrenching, left you ice-cold. There was an unnecessary scene in a pub-disco that lasted for about 10 agonizingly long minutes.
Shashi Kapoor was one of the bright spots of the movie, giving a controlled and restrained performance. The rest of the cast, save for Anant Nag, Om Puri and Victor Bannerjee, were there for window dressing.
The pace was slow, any sympathy for the characters was non-existent, and the editing was awful.
Overall, the film is unable to fulfill even the most meager of expectations, and I would recommend this film to be given a miss.
