Trivia

After being initially rejected by Doordarshan due to perceived lack of interest in religious programming, the series quickly went on to become the most popular series in Indian television history, reaching over 100 million viewers each week. Its popularity reached a point of what the Indian news magazine India Today called "'Ramayan' fever", where religious services were rescheduled, buses, trains, and inter-city trucks were stopped, and shops would close every Sunday at 9:30 a.m. so that people would gather to watch the show. In villages, watching the show became a religious ritual unto itself. The show's popularity would remain the highest in history until a few years later, when Mahabharat (1988), also based on an ancient Hindu epic, would exceed its popularity. See more »

User Reviews

Shoddy production values, mainly for devotional viewers
27 January 2009 | by long-fordSee all my reviews

Unlike BR Chopra's 'Mahabharat', 'Ramayan' isn't high-minded or philosophical. It's basically a must for religious devotees of Lord Ram, but the casual viewer will find little of interest. There's too much mythology and devotion and not enough about Hinduism and Hindu culture. Still, Arun Govil is alright as Ram. Most of the supporting cast overact and production values are extremely shoddy. The exception is Arvind Trivedi, who makes a formidable villain as the demon Lord Ravan, who is ultimately defeated in this age old battle between good and evil.

Overall 5/10
