I greatly enjoyed watching this TV series. Some say that the special effects of this series are bad.
To me, I could care less about the special effects. It's the actual meaning the series demonstrated that really counts.
It captured the holy essence and is extremely closely aligned with the original epic. It covers an immense amount of the original epic, as there are ninety-four 45 minute episodes. It educated me a lot on Hinduism. It showed the awesome power and grace of countless heroes like Bhishma, Arjuna, Karna, and Holy Krishna. I would greatly recommend this movie to everyone. I absolutely loved it.
