This is a must watch series. I have seen it a couple of times already and enjoyed a lot. This depicts the socio-political scenario of the Gupta? period. It is amazing how all of it is still so relevant in our society. A very good gift for youngsters too.
Have watched the series twice and still have thirst to watch it again. Once in a lifetime performance, awesome direction. Worth watching with entire family. It looks like Mr. Dwivedi had this dream when he must have started reading about Chanakya. Salute you Sir!
People who know their history and people who believe in Kautilya, have to watch this series. I have not seen such powerful performances from the entire cast of any series.
I am writing this review almost 2 decades after this series was initially aired.
It must be my first review of any commercial product as looking its listing in FlipKart just compelled me to do so. I will say it is one of the best researched, enacted and directed series in Indian Television ever. Complete direction of the series makes you believe that few things in this world are beyond technology.
It is a must watch TV series. It demonstrates how Chanakya laid down the thought of India as a single country. It will also show how the alliance politics ruined India's future 2500 years ago. Same way it is ruining now. So every Indian must watch this series. It is totally worth of money. It can also be a precious gift to your loved one as well.
