Trivia

After being initially rejected by Doordarshan due to perceived lack of interest in religious programming, the series quickly went on to become the most popular series in Indian television history, reaching over 100 million viewers each week. Its popularity reached a point of what the Indian news magazine India Today called "'Ramayan' fever", where religious services were rescheduled, buses, trains, and inter-city trucks were stopped, and shops would close every Sunday at 9:30 a.m. so that people would gather to watch the show. In villages, watching the show became a religious ritual unto itself. The show's popularity would remain the highest in history until a few years later, when Mahabharat (1988), also based on an ancient Hindu epic, would exceed its popularity. See more »

Very Very Excellent !!!
30 September 2001 | by (Houston, Texas) – See all my reviews



His Holiness, His Divine Grace, Maharishi Ramanand Sagar has done excellent job.

From all the characters in the epic, I like His Divine Grace Ram and Her Divine Grace Sita.

I would like to add that in reality Ram or sita could not have been better than they appear in epic.

Thank you very much for your kind considerations.

With Very Best Regards.
