Goofs

CJ describes Lord John Marbury as an earl. This is impossible, as the title "Lord John" indicates that he is the younger son of either a duke or a marquis. Leo also calls him "Lord Marbury" which is incorrect if he is Lord John; "Lord Marbury" would be used to address him if he were a baron or a peer (a peer is a nobleman of the rank of earl or higher).

Condemn this episode
7 April 2013 | by See all my reviews

This episode is bullshit......i know its just a TV serial. still they have shown that India had invaded Pakistan for no apparent reason. First of all in the true history, India has never initiated any war or initiated the invasion of foreign country. Kashmir had been associated with India after a independence. Now i will quote from Wikipedia "When the Pakistani invasion of Kashmir began in September 1947, Patel immediately wanted to send troops into Kashmir. But agreeing with Nehru and Mountbatten, he waited till Kashmir's monarch had acceded to India. Patel then oversaw India's military operations to secure Srinagar, the Baramulla Pass and the forces retrieved much territory from the invaders. Patel, along with Defence Minister Baldev Singh administered the entire military effort, arranging for troops from different parts of India to be rushed to Kashmir and for a major military road connecting Srinagar to Pathankot be built in 6 months"

So Kashmir was always a part of India. There has been three wars and all the three of them has been initiated by Pakistan. Though Pakistan has been using last 60 yrs there back door entry to the military war and we have proof of that; still Inida has, is and always be the one who responds not initiates.

I strongly condemn this episode for showing the wrong thing though it was just for entertainment.
