Unfolds the 5000 year history of India from its beginnings to the coming of independence in 1947
30 March 2008 | by (Pune, India) – See all my reviews

Written by the first Prime Minister of India(Jawaharlal Nehru), directed by the finest of Directors in India(Shyam Benegal), and played by a wonderful cast, this series is definitely a masterpiece,with simple and non-glamorous filming and direction.

The Opening song of the series is actually a timeless hymn called Nasadiya Sukta from RigVeda, which talks about the origin of the universe. It is an important example for the emergence of monistic or monotheistic thought in the Vedic period of India. The uttering of this hymn in chorus along with Vanraj Bhatia's magical music had this strange, almost hypnotic effect on me.

Also, the deep throated voices of Roshan Seth(the narrator) and Om Puri would always keep me captivated. Though describing 5000 years of rich and varied history of such a large sub-continent in 53 episodes seems impossible, Shyam Benegal has done an excellent job at giving an insight into the history of ancient and modern India through fabulous storytelling and direction.

I strongly recommend this series to anyone interested in Indian History/Religion/Philosophy.
