Agree with some of the viewers here. I had a feeling of "been here ..seen this before". Nothing new in what they have shown. For someone who has watched the original Ramayan in 80s and the NDTV successful version of it, I felt this version left lot to be desired. The actors in Vaikunth all looked dull and bored. Prob because Sagars have excelled at this, my expectations were high. But still one can always expect a remake to be better or be an improvement over the earlier version. But here the scenes were not just similar, they werent even as good as NDTV Imagine's version. Felt ..some actors were sleep walking through their roles. No offence meant to ardent followers. Not making any personal comment here. Just my opinion. Those who havent seen earlier versions may like it but those who have are bound to make comparisons.
 
Agree, this is what I too felt! This first episode wasn't bad, but it wasn't impressive either. It seemed like a combination of the 1986 Ramayan and 2008 Ramayan. Plus, I am not a fan of the somber settings of Sagar Pictures. All their shows are like this, with dark and dreary palaces that don't give you a happy feeling. I feel like I'm watching Dwarkadheesh all over again.
 
What I did not like was that they showed Kaikeyi going to battle with Dashrath here, which is inaccurate. Kaikeyi going to battle and rescuing an injured Dashrath comes soon after their marriage, but here they showed it just before the birth of their children. Kaikeyi is supposed to be with Kaushalya and Sumitra welcoming Dashrath at the palace, not coming home with him.
 
And is it just me, or is anyone unimpressed with the actors chosen for Manthara and Kaikeyi? They're not up to par with the actors of RSR and ASR. But I do like Kaushalya and Sumitra, and have yet to reserve judgment of Dashrath. He's okay, but not as great as Bal Dhuri or Pankaj Kalra, the Dashraths of RSR and ASR.
 
But baby Ram was SO cute! I think the last five minutes were my favorite parts of the episode.Day DreamingLOL
I fully agree wid u kaikayi saved dashrath before their marriage. These small small silly mistakes make the show untrustable

No, not before marriage. It was after marriage only, but much much before the birth of their kids. She used to fight in battles with her husband in the initial days of their marriage but then settled down as a wife later on. By the time the children were born, she was like Kaushalya and Sumitra.

My memory of Ramayan will always be the one with Arun Govil and Deepika as Ram and Sita, and Dara Singh as Hanuman, - that is the Ramayan i remember from my childhood... just like Mahabharat.  No other faces can take that away.  Smile
 
 
I will def try to see this version...  just to see if i can get into it

Today's episode in review. The naming ceremony takes place and a baby Ram is shown (OMG, the baby Ram is so cute especially his eyes) and it was a treat to see how Ram is the apple of the eyes for King Dhasart and his three queens. Manthra tries in between to change Kaikeyi's mind but she doesn't listens. And a leap is shown with a little grown up Ram and his brothers and the selection of the Ram young is apt. In fact i believe that Ram is a little darker in real because he is Vishnu and Laxman is supposed to be the most good looking among all. The brother love they had for each another was such a touching scene and as per precap, a grown up Ram is all set to enter next week. Can't wait for it now. I would say that its moving fast Smile

I dont think i am liking it. IMO the palace setting is too dark. Dashrath wasnt partial for kaikai. He loved her but he respected kaushalya a lot.and why are they showing devi lakshami in white. Her head gear and jwellary is also looking ordinary. Also i didnt like the aggression in keykai. There was no need to show manthara thrown on the floor.kaikai wasnt a violant lady.the scene of kaushalya getting the darshan was god

Watched the second episode of  Ramayan. I really liked it. Much better than first episode. 
Baby Ram and Teenager Ram were really good. especially the boy who played grown up RAM. he was simpy fantastic.
Today all the three  queens were looking so beautiful. Kaikeyi was over acting in certain bits.

btw precap shows grown up RAM. wow...I  liked the glimpse of RAM.  His  eyes really had that sheethaltha...and the way he was playing sitar..me tho maha impressed. Embarrassed

This ramayan is going to be a treat to watch. 
Cant wait for the next episode.
