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 »

User Reviews

Worth checking out for anyone who loves mythology!
12 December 2003 | by See all my reviews

This lengthy television adaptation of THE RAMAYANA is entertaining as long as the viewer has a working familiarity with Hindu mythology and is patient enough to enjoy the liesurely pace. I don't think it's likely to win over anyone who comes to the material cold or who comes to it expecting Spielberg-level special effects.

It's refreshing to see a visual realization of something other than Graeco-Roman mythology since, fascinating as that subject is, it's already gotten sizeable exposure in movies and on television. Rama and Sita come alive nicely in this production and unsurprisingly Hanuman manages to steal a few scenes. The style is faithful to the original epic so anyone who loves the story doesn't have to fear that it's been transformed into a slam-bang all-action blockbuster.
