Trivia

According to the making-of documentary "Mahabharat ki Mahabharat," Mukesh Khanna was initially selected for the role of Drona, but was later re-cast as Bheeshma after producer B.R. Chopra saw him in full costume and make-up for the role of Drona and uttered, in Hindi, "This is our Bheeshma." See more »

Quotes

[Krishna has told Karna the truth about his birth and begs him to join the Pandavas in the upcoming Kurukshetra war. Karna turns down the offer, but later that day, he approaches at a temple alone]

History Can't be repeated
10 September 2006 | by (Gujarat, India) – See all my reviews

The great thing happen rare time in the world , and Mahabharata is one of those great things.

All of the character had played very well, and It's a result of their respective work..

I have already told that history can't be repeated, means even though same people Try to do work with their all ability they can't do same like they have did, so it's a time dependent story. I like the all characters but among them the most that I like is a Krishna, because of his speech, and elegant behavior.

Thanx.
