The serial shows the efforts of Vishnu Gupt Chanakya, a great scholar, economist, and politician.
18 April 2009 | by (Bharat) – See all my reviews

The serial has been made very well, and the acting of the main character, Chanakya, played by Chandra Prakash Dwivedi is stunning. The language and its articulation give a very good impression of the theme.

On the translation of Greek, which was done using English, I would expect betterment of accent, but this was a very small part of the serial.

All together, the work is wonderful, and there is no doubt that it was recognized by academy and people. Chandra Prakash Dwivedi's articulation, expression, and body language are worth praising.

The historical aspect of the serial is the most important. The theme of the work seems to be fiction, but it is not. It is a reality Bharat (India) witnessed long time ago. There are many lessons that can be learned from the serial, e.g. the concept of nation that is united by values and history and the existence of various states within the nation, tension between states, personal benefit and national benefit, nationalism, etc.

Watching the serial will provoke many philosophical thoughts in the mind of the viewer.
