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]
Karna: O, Creator! Why have I been tormented like this, to learn the truth about my birth? The Sun is still the source of light to the world! My mother is still a respected queen! Yet I, the result of their union, am a wanderer... But I will never give up Duryodhana!

The Best adaption of the biggest epic ever!!
27 January 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is was made in late 1980s and I watched it as I was young in India. But when I bought the all 16 DVDs. It was amazing...the special effects may look old but the acting is superb...the acting done by the leading cast is unbelievable..this epic is about the meaning of life and Bhagavad Geeta spoken by Lord Krishna looks so real and understandable. Highly recommend this version..I know there are many versions but this is the best and the original. I think everyone in life should either read this great epic or watch it...it's not about Hinduism its about your Dharma (Duty) as human being. And if you are interested in great story telling you won't be disappointed.
