Show review: Buddha

Saturday, Sep 28, 2013, 11:54 IST | Agency: DNA


Buddha
Zee TV , Sunday, 11 am  


It's for the first time that Buddha has been brought alive on the small-screen and naturally aroused a lot of curiosity. 

What's it about: It's the story of a warrior-turned-philosopher and founder of Buddhism, Buddha. The serial starts with King Suddhodan returning to Kapilavastu, victorious from a war and greeted by his two wives, Mayadevi and Prajapati, who are sisters. Suddhodan, addressed as Dev by his wives is yearning for a son to take his legacy ahead. Meanwhile Mangala, the wife of Dronadhan, Dev's younger brother is plotting for her son Devdutt to be heir to the king. However, the king performs a yagna to beget a son and soon Mayadevi is pregnant. Mangala tries her best to kill Mayadevi but is unsuccessful. 

As is the custom Mayadevi is on her way to her maternal home Devadaha to give birth to her child but delivers enroute in Lumbini and names him Siddharth. His birth heralds celebrations and a seer Asita visits Shudodhan only to tell him that his son Siddharth will be a holy man renouncing the kingdom and worldly pleasures. This doesn't go down well with the king.

What works: The sets are grand but more importantly they look aesthetic. What stands out are the costumes. Right from the jewellery to the apparel, everything about it looks authentic. Understated and elegant, there is a classy feel to it. The special effects are good, the blooming of a flower, the white elephant that appears in Mayadevi's dream are computer graphics but blend nicely with live action. Also, the incidents in the story may have occurred aeons ago, but they have a modern connect. For instance, a selfish woman wanting the best for her child at the cost of others, the selfless love between two sisters etc. Remove the elaborate sets and costumes and you could be watching today's story. Also, the serial moves at a perfect pace allowing you to savour the story, which is good.

What's doesn't:
 With costume dramas becoming a weekday primetime affair, wish even Buddha was aired in the evening slot rather than only on Sunday mornings.       

Performances: Sameer Dharmadhikari as Shuddhodan is first-rate. His angst at the lack of a heir, devotion towards his wife Mayadevi, happiness at the birth of his son and his transformation as a ruthless king who wants to keep Siddharth away from any kind of sorrow at the cost of others are essayed brilliantly. Gunjan Upari as Prajapati is vivacious and lively while Dipika Upadhey as Mayadevi did her part well. Nigaar Khan's Mangala " the vamp, is slightly over-the-top. The last episode saw the introduction of 10-year old Siddharth in the form of Vishal Bansal and he looked cute. 

Way ahead: 
 The makers should take advantage of the fact that there hasn't been anything on Buddha and make this show an all-rounded one with not just about his life as prince but touching on other aspects as well like his teachings etc, in an interesting manner. Chaya Unnikrishnan

Buddha to be unveiled at Sarnath

The team of TV show "Buddha" will unveil in Sarnath, near Varanasi, the face of the actor who will play the title role in the show. 

The makers have decided to launch it in Sarnathbecause Buddha first taught about 'dharma' there and the Buddhist sangha (community) also came into existence there, said a statement. 

The actor who will essay Buddha on screen has undergone a solemn training regimen to depict the character precisely. He also underwent a 10-day course in vipassana, a form of meditation, as part of his exercise to know the character in depth. 


"Buddha" comes on Zee TV.

Amit Behl misses out on Anil Kapoor's 24

Television these days is giving a tough time to the big screen by introducing shows like Anil Kapoor's 24, aired on Colors TV.

The first week airing of '24' itself has made the audiences addicted to its storyline and the show has also become the talk of the town. On the other hand, Amit Behl, currently seen in Zee TV'sBuddha, is one actor who has missed out on being part of the series.

A source said, "As the series is a remake of Hollywood's 24, Amit was offered the character of the guy who shaves off Jay Singh Rathor's daughter's head. However, the actor was not able to give out dates for the role as he is already busy with Shyam Benegal's Samvidhan."

We contacted Amit Behl to know more on the same and the actor shared, "Yes, I was offered a role in 24 but due to my prior commitments I could not take up the role. But we are in talks for their next season. So let's see, may be next season I will be part of 24."

Great going Amit!
