I've been trying to find out the names of the major cast members, and have most of them. Once I find out a few more, I'll submit that to the mods to edit the cast list.
I like Amit Pachori. While I'd have liked him to be Mahadev here too, I know that Pachori probably doesn't want to be typecast, and Shiva is just a peripheral role. That said, I'd have preferred him to play someone on the Pandava side.
I agree that Bhima is remarkably good. One thing I admire about this serial is that it's not obsessed w/ Arjun, the way another serial 20 years ago was. It's given due prominence to Yudhisthir in the start-up to the events of Varnavarta, and it's giving due prominence to Bhima now. One thing that surprised me - them showing Hidimba & Hidimbi today. Given how they've not shown Karna so far (usual actor draught?), I thought that they wouldn't show Hidimba & Bakasura, but will go straight to Draupadi.
I think Draupadi is their last chance to get things right in Dwarkadheesh - if they pick someone mediocre, they're toast. Later, if they show Arjun spending time w/ Krishna in Dwarka, I hope they show Satyaki, since he was the 2nd most important warrior in the Pandava army after Arjun.
thanks vrish, i guess u can update the names somewhere here too, so that we can know them , and can get their pictures later.
so duryodhan's name is amit pachori, he is a sagar regular, and has done roles in Prithviraj chauhan, dharamveer and hatim even( not sure), i liked him as tantiya topi in jhansi too, he is good and i guess its good he gets toi be duryodhan. Pandava sides already have the good wishes with them and to compete with puneet issar's duryodhan,we need a strong person. Duryodhan is one of the most important characters in MB, i find him more important than even nakula and sahadeva coz he was the reason stuffs happened.
hey i liked that 20 yr old show, it had nitish uncle and roopa ganguly and some of the most handsome guys and girls of that time but i get your point, infact i would like it if they really show all the important characters properly and not make a one man hero show. I guess they won't, since we already have our hero here, lord K himself. Draupadi, god knows, i wish they would pick some dusky girl, but better be a good actress than dusky one. I honestly still love roopa ganguly a lot
hey i think in some initial epis, they once showed some junior actor as satyaki, i hope they show how arjun is satyakis guru, he had a large part to play. lets see how stuff progress. Bheem guy is quite ehm hot imo, atleast for the first look. Kunti needs to improve.
