This new age Mahabharat is indeed another masterpiece in making ...... A 'Real' Game of Thrones indeed
2 November 2013 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Everyone including myself wondered whether this new Mahabharat by Swastik Production will ever live up to the masterpiece created by BR Chopra more than 2 decades back. Although the promos were looking very engrossing but yet this element of doubt was always there.

The few episodes in the beginning may have appeared to be like a fast- forward of the story of mahabharat revolving around king shantanu. However as the they pass away things begin to get settled down and the story begins to pick up the right grip/pace.

Now in this Mahabharat the characters have been treated to quite an extent objectively and have been allowed sufficient space to grow. The negative characters like Dhritrashtra and Shakuni are shown as to how circumstances made them the way they were. Moreover the Sets can rival that of Hollywood production while the background score of Ajay-Atul is enigmatic and the hallmark of this series. I personally like Rajyabhisekh Mantra , Karna's Theme , Parshuram's Theme ,Bheshma's Theme and above all Krishna's amazing flute music.

Coming to performance. As yet of now everyone is acting superbly. However the actor playing Bheeshm and Lord Krishna are outstanding . Alongwith that the teachings of Lord Krishna in between the episodes are truly full of wisdom and knowledge for the current generation of young Indians who are torn between the worlds of modernity and traditions.

On one thing, I would like to really applaud this Mahabharata team is that they even after 2 decades of gap (since the 1st mahabharat was telecasted) haven't diluted the aspect of culture, ethics and practices of Indian tradition which shall have some positive influence on our present day youngsters.

To sum it up , this new Mahabharat is the best thing running on Indian television and to those for whom it appears as soap opera should really get a medical check-up of their ability to analyze things properly . With great war scenes and maintaining the same momentum I am sure it shall too be the most iconic thing ever to be launched in the history of Indian Television . 10/10 for this great work .
