Excellent show
21 February 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The Sword of Tipu Sultan is one of the classic shows of Indian Television from the '80s and '90s.

It is remarkable in its historical accuracy and attention to detail. The acting is superb, direction insuperable (by Indian standards), and the adaption from Gidwani's work is brilliant.

The show is considered violent and anti-British by many. I must, however, point out that the title of the show is "The Sword of Tipu Sultan," not the "Garden of Tipu Sultan." The show depicts a period in Indian history when numerous petty kings and Nawabs were fighting British expansionism. Violence and wars were a part of everyday life in India, especially in those states faced by British conquest, as Tipu's was.

At the same time, there is more to the show than just violence and wars. It shows the life of the people, commoners, nobility and the British, and the tragedy and joy associated with it.

I have watched the show in its entirety twice on Doordarshan, India's national TV channel, and I would love to watch it again.

10/10.
