This show is as brilliant as Mahabharat made by the same production house. It has the same brilliant moral values, performances, narration, editing, etc. It does not fall short on any count, in fact, it excels.
BR Chopra's mythological shows like Mahabharat, Vishnu_Puran, Ma Shakti and Ramayan have had a maturity like none other. They have been aptly restrained while being supremely expressive at the same time. Very precise.
I loved three stories very much in this series. The first being Ramayan. I like it better than the Sagar version. The depth and drama were enchanting. The other was the story of Prahlad. Kinshuk Vai dya was such a heart stealer here. Finally, the most unforgettable one is the one that comes first, that of Dhruv. That simple and innocent tale brought tears to my eyes. Though not a part of the story of the ten incarnations, it was more heartfelt than any other. Mata Lakshmi's motherhood was love provoking.
I had a few disappointments thought. I felt that Nitishji could have been slightly more convincing in the role of Parshuram. Also, I really missed seeing him in the role of Lord Buddha. It would have been a treat.
Without picking on hairs, I think several aspects of this show are worth crediting. First, Niteshji's confident and apt portrayal or diversifiied characters. Next, the balanced presentation of every story. Also, the authentic language, consumes and locations.
Such shows really make learning about our culture a very interesting process. Do watch this show for some guilt free television viewing.
