Quite good movie !!
9 April 2005 | by (Belgium) – See all my reviews

The epic of Mahabharat which was written five thousand years ago, is known to every Indian even today. It is translated in may languages and considered as one of the greatest stories ever told.

In is the story of five brothers who fought for truth, peace and justice. These five brothers called Pandavas, they had to fight with their own brothers Kauraws.

The immortal character of MAHABHARAT is undoubtedly lord Krishna who helped Pandavas as their friend philosopher and guide.

The climax of MAHABHARAT was the epic battle of Kurukshetra in which Pandavas fought for justice. In this great war Arjuna a great warrior and devotee of lord Krishna. Refused to fight against his own relatives and cousin brother. But is was lord Krishna who inspired Arjuna to do his duty and participate in the war.

The advice that lord Krishna gave to Arjuna is known as BHAGWAT GEETA which is the essence of the Indian philosophy of life. Indeed, to an Indian Geeta is a holy book and over. The centuries it has inspired savants like mahatma Gandhi, Lokmanya Tilak and Dr. Radha Krishnan.

As a result of great war of Mahabharat Kaurawas were killed and Pandavas ruled kingdom of Hastinapur to establish truth and justice the sacred land of Bharat
