I lived with every character as I went through the episodes. I mourned with Babur on the death of his young son. I celebrated with Akbar when the Mughals won Gujrat. I felt Shivaji's humiliation in the court of Aurangzeb and Tipu Sultan's misfortune when French betrayed him.
The actors are amazing. No one could have played their parts better than Om Puri (as Aurangzeb), Kulbhushan Kharbanda (as Akbar), Vijay Arora (as Jahangir), Naseeruddin Shah (as Chattrapati Shivaji Maharaj) and one and only Roshan Seth (as Nehru).
I could not complete without praising the wonderful music compositions. Not only the background scores and the title song but also the in- between folk songs that played the most important role in connecting with the viewers.
Hats off to Shyam Benegal for giving us this master piece.
A must watch to all the students and admirers of Indian history.
