From day 1, a number of the religious practices and the significance of event escaped them, as well as actual histoy. Only time they got it more or less right was the killing of Narakasura.
Actually, even RS SK did a pretty mediocre job of that serial - for instance, IIRC, showing Paundrak being slain by Hanuman, or totally reshuffling the sequence of events in the Mahabharata war. But yeah, in this serial, the previous track of Susheela's rebellion against Sudama, as well as his resuming his begging activities, showed how clueless SP is. As for the current track, the only thing they got right was Paundrak pretending to be god. Rest all is just them making up whatever they feel like.
Yes, Sagar Arts is a lot better than Sagar Pictures...but if Jai Jai Jai Bajrangbali is Sagar Arts, they're doing a shoddy job of that too. Is that Sagar pictures? Chandragupta Maurya I think is Sagar Arts, and along with Mahima Shani Dev Ki, which isn't doing that bad, they both have decent TRPs compared to the current Sagar Pictures shows. Even Veer Shivaji is doing very well with the audience, and it's also Sagar Arts. I think Sagar Arts stays true to the mythos/historical stories more in terms of not only storyline but also settings. Everything in Sagar Pictures is always dark and gloomy.
You already know that I don't like the post-RS part of SK much...they did show a lot of major events poorly, and except for a few scenes like the Tulabharam and Rukmini Haran, majority of it was dragged endlessly, especially the latter part of the serial. Only part of the Mahabharat track I liked was Abhimanyu Vadh and Arjuna's vow, which was shown well and was very emotional.
