I am glad I don't watch this show. This is the main reason I avoid all Ramayans. The one I watched is forever etched in my mind and I don't want anything else to spoil the memories of whatever I have seen.
I generally try to watch all the versions of Ramayan because of my love for Ram and Sita, but some of the versions really go overboard.
I had much rather watch BRC's Ramayan instead of this one if I get the chance. I had my reservations about it at first, but in comparison it can't be worse than this, lol.
For me at least, the two Ramayans by Sagar Arts are enough for me. I'm satisfied.
Btw, you're right that no matter how angry Lakshman may have gotten, he'd never have threatened to kill Parashuram as he was still pious at heart. A Raghuvanshi would never raise their sword against a Brahmin, even if it's only a threat.
This scene ruined the swayamvar sequence for me, which was otherwise not that bad.
Another scene from the new Ramayan which was totally wrong was that they changed the muhurat of Ram and Sita. They made up this story of how Ram is a manglik, so the devtas sent Chandra dev dressed as an apsara to delay the marriage from not happening on Uttara Phalguni (which is wrong since in all temples, Ram-Sita vivah is celebrated every year on Uttara Phalguni nakshatra only). What was sick about this scene was that all the Raghuvanshis were attracted to the apsara, even Vasishta and Vishavamitra.
I was horrified by the way they made the sages seem so lustful!
