I agree that Anita as Draupadi was a bit too extreme, but give the girl a must remember that she didnt have enough time to sink into the role because of the Fear Factor thing.

As for the beginning..I'm 10000% sure that Ekta will show the vastra haran scene again because the 1st epsode was a PRELUDE to what Veda Vyas was thinking..he was remembering the war of Kurukshetra.

Saakshi and Kiran tried thir best and I thought they succeeded. You guys must remember that THIS Mahabharat has tough competiton from big serials where as the old one didn have any at all. AND also that the actors in this one are from regular BT shows....SO it will take them time to transtition from their Kekta la-la land to the epic world....nobody's perfect so this transition will take time and I'm sure that all of these actors can prove that they can do a great job.

As for coustumes-I like them because they're not too flashy and for one thing HOW in the world do we know that they dressed like in that century..I know there is research going on BUT no one can be too sure. The costumes are great because they're not too gold oriented like the old version. But the tattoos have to go.

As for the OLD vs NEW- I'd really wish people woild stop doing that because even though its the same epic..BOTH are very different in their own way..This one is supposed to target teens and children because this is the stuff they're exposed to in Bollywood and TV Shows...and plus they have popular actors playing lead its bound to attract Telly audiences.

And for those people who hate the show as said in Ekta's words- If you dont like it dont watch it....ITS AS SIMPLE AS THAT. Stop abusing the show and stop comapring it to the old one because there are people wh are interested in knowing the epic and watching the show.

sorry if I offended any...

so true!I think she has crossed a line. No respect for the story.. her own kamolika or whatever Vampi-ish mind should not be working here.

enough is enough.

PS. the draupadi was disgusting. no grace. absolutlely no dignity in first place!!

I tell you what is wrong with the serial - no respect for the epic .. that is something which has been around in ages , deeply sewn into our day to day existence .. not some bollywood formual kitsch that you can assault for money and profit.You have to respect the soul of that book and what it means to India and Indian Culture .. and the result will show .. that is why ne Ramayan works so well ... because they respect that epic.

Wat are u saying??? Dont agree with u AT ALL!!! I found Sakshi and Kiran gud for theri roles especially Sakshi... Finally, I was glad tat Sakshi came out of tat typical Paro look and tried Ganga... She was looking awesome in tat costume...

As for the costumes, Iam in luv with these costumes just becos I hate to see men wearing such heavy gold jewellery and stuff and fighting wars.. Helloooooooo, who does tat!! Jsut becos BR showed his MB with so much of ornaments and decorations, it doesnt mean even Ekta shud follow it heheeee

anyways, as Jinks said, KHMK definitely rocks for me big time more than any serial right now in Tellywood! Thanks!

I think this review is tolerant, because i thought the first week was gravely dispicable! From the acting to the technicalities to the terrible costumes, this was a disaster which will never ressurect. Ekta Kapoor should never have touched this classic.
