    Hi,
    I watched the first episode of Ekta kapur’s Mahabharat,And it wasn’nt at all impressive….I really beleive none of the actor’s suited the main roles as well as the acting was not up to the mark…Eventually there was comparaison with BR chopra’s Mahabharat but New one ..was far below…
    New one was not make like an epic..but a type of Daily Soaps..which come out from Ekta kapur’s production House..I think so..there shud be much more seriousness ..to the main epic..
    Also..There shud be more emphasis on..charactors of the epic rather than the main actors who are playing the lead roles….
    But overall…I doesn’t like it …

    I watched the 1st and 2nd episodeof Ekta kapur’s Mahabharat.I am very much depressed to see this serial. It is an AMERICANISED MAHABHARAT so far as costumes are concerned.Are we watching the movie of THE KING ALEXANDER? WHY THE COSTUME OF ANCIENT GREEK HAVE BEEN USED IN INDIAN MYTHOLOGY? In fact there is a contrversy regarding the dress. Nobody have seen what type of dress Arjun usually wore.But IT SHOULD BE WHAT MAJOR PEOPLE HAVE GOT AN IMPRESSION ABOUT THEIR DRESSES.mRS kAPUR SHOULD SEE THE b.R cHOPRA’S mAHABHARAT AND THE OLD FEATURE FILM MAHABHARAT by A.A Nadiatwala acted by Pradip kumar, Padmini and Dara Singh.the looks and posture of the actor and actress are disgusting(Just like modern movie as if in which all are playing the role of mafia don). THIS MAHABHARAT IS VERY HARMFULL FOR NEW GENERATION because we have already seen the previous serial and movie and also read different books on Mahabharat.But most of the children of new generation do not know the story of mahabharat and they have not seen the old serial and movie. So they will have a wrong Idea about the characters of ONE OUR MOST POPULAR EPIC.

    I have seen in the poster of Mahabharat one young man standing with long hair. Who is he? has he played the role of young Vishma Pitamaha? If so then I will say he is looking like a ROCK SINGER OR A DISCO DANCER. SHAME.

    Why all acters of Mahabharat are wearing black colour dresses? What a disgusting set Ekta Kapur has made for this serial.Was it a story of STONE AGE?.I am requesting Ekta Kapur to watch again the B.R Chopra’s Mahabharat and the feature film of AAnadatwala released in the year 1965 acted by Pradip Kumar padmini, and please read the Mahabharat.This serial should be stopped.

    As a professional music composer of Bengal I would like to say that the background music and the background song of Ekta Kapur’s Mahabharat is not all up to the mark. There is no mythological touch in it. Actually no body knows what type of songs was at the time of Mahbharat. But in all previous mythological bollywood movie the famous music composer like Vasant Desai, C.Ramchandra, Chitragupta, Laxmikant-Payrelal, Kalyanji-Anandji , Rajkamal selected few Ragas like CHANDRAKAUNS, MALKAUNSE, DARBARI-KANARA, KALAVATI, BHAIRABI and by applying frequently in their composition( Of course the songs are modern, commercial songs) in mythological movies like SAMPURNA RAMAYANA,(1960PROBABLY) PAVANPUTRA HANUMAN, (1958 probably), MAHBHARAT(1965), HARISH CHANDRA TAARAMATI(1964 probably), HARIDARSHAN(1973), HAR HAR MAHADEV(1970 probably), B.R CHOPRA’S MAHABHARAT they establish a “ mythological touch” in a mythological movie. It can not be physically defined. It is a precedent. It should be realized by heart. Particularly the songs composed in raga CHANDRAKAUNSE AND MALKAUNSE are considered to be the most effective in mythological hindi commercial movie. The music of Ekta Kapur Mahabharat failed to fulfill these criteria. It is just shouting and full of noise. I have not seen the name of the music composer in the title. But who may be he should take lesson from our previous great music composers whose name are mentioned above by listening to their music. I also composed many tune in many devotional and mythological music video and tele-films. I always try to give mythological touch in my composition. At least it should be different from a song of a modern movie.

    Hi!!!! i would like to rply to Mr.Udayan Mukherji…… the first few episodes were realy gud dey accordin to me set a high standard wid charismatic actors like Kiran karmarkar(as Shantanu),Sakshi Tanwar(as Ganga)Ronit Roy(as Bhishma)etc. special mention 4 dese 3…. n yes u r rite the dresses could have been beter coz our ancesters didnt wear robes like the Romans…. the set was mindbogglin but now after the departure of kiran,Sakshi n Ronit takin a back seat the story is runnin vry bad as ekta s creating nw stories….. n the trp is also falling………..but i would hav to giv credit to kiran karmarkar whom i personally admire much dt he did a fantastic job wid the limited oppurtuanity he got… n he was lukin marvelous.. n yes last but not the least the title track could hav been better……….ekta shld have followd B.R Chopra if possible copied him coz he did a gr8 job wid the selections as wel as the story
