@ Tani - I'm sorry, but by the time a show goes on air there are no more chances. You have to get it right..if the actors are finding it hard then they should have practiced more. It's not theatre that they are performing live..Everyone knew there would be comparisions to the old MB, so they should have made more effort in the rehearsals.

As for the lack of time, well, that's not really my problem. If they weren't ready, they shouldn't have filmed.

How is she ruining it? Well, Draupadi, the most dignified woman of the times, who could reduce grown men to shivers, had the power to cut people with her words. She's not meant to be a shrieking, crying victim whose performance invokes a feeling of pity. She should invoke fear. Now I don't know about you, but I was more amused than scared...

As for the costumes, I couldn't care less. Dress them however you want - but if they cannot deliver the feel, the power, the magnificence of the story, then they should not bother.

totally agree .. i think ekta wouldve been better off finding unknown faces .. some of these are so well known as a particular character that we cant see them as anyone else .. and plus, with their daily serials, they dont even have time to shoot for mahabharat ..

i didnt think it could match up to BR Chopras version anyway .. maybe the graphics side of it .. but definetely not the rest ..

Thank you for a honest review!!Ha Ha....I knew it will flop! I did not watch it and will never will!! Thank you IF for the review. I was waiting for the first review!
This is an epic we are talking about not some run-of-the-mill story!! Balaji television better be very careful about what they show! If not they are liable to be subject to severe criticism and censure!!
I see all these comments about giving the actors a 'chance'! What chance are we talking about??? Are these all not seasoned actors who have spent the last several years acting in serials and sometimes driving us up the wall?? Then why should they be given 'a chance'?? I would agree to that for the newcomers but not for the Parvatis and Oms and Ronits and Anitas!! Please!!
The whole look of the cast itself(in the promos and launch pictures) was way way below mark and that itself was a huge turn-off for me!!!

I completely agree with this review!

Anitah as Draupadi is the worst choice, no dignity, no royal grace, and shrill, teeth-bared acting.
So my guess was right and the 4 Pandavas were cheat shoots, thats why they never showed their faces! Dushashan was overacting and looked like an extra.
Havent seen Ronit Roy as yet but Ganga and Shantanu didnt look very impressive either.
It was a bad idea of Ekta's to attempt Mahabharat. She shd stick to family dramas or love stories.
