Well Made Series.
14 January 2007 | by (India) – See all my reviews

The Sword of Tipu Sultan , is a fine attempt to show the view point of the Indian rulers to the people across the globe. good attention paid to every detail, and though it may appear that the series has shown large amount of violence, but it is just the way history needs to be told.

Britishers , in that era, did many inhumane things to Indian rulers and their children and relatives,

for example in the case of Tipu Sultan ,son of Hader Ali, ...Tipu's two sons were shot dead by the British. and Mysore Ransaked. so it needs to be shown, just the way it happened.

Sanjay Khan's acting is as always phenomenal.

a well Made Series over all.
