This is the series on the Mahabharata that brought India to a standstill.
What Homer's ILIAD is to Greek Civilization and the great classics of yore to different nations of the world, the MAHABHARATA is to India.
Director B.R. Chopra's dream was to capture the magnificence, the grandeur and the drama of this great epic.
As one of India's eminent film-makers, he was able to gather a large budget and bring television audiences the richness and grandeur of the period to which the Mahabharata belongs.
Rated as the most popular TV program in India, the serial consisted of (and comprises) 94 episodes, each 45 minutes. With English, French, and Spanish subtitles. All regions NTSC. DVD set includes detailed synopsis of each episode, and special "Behind the Scenes" with cast and crew. Volume 16 disk includes introduction to the Vishnupurana. Deluxe collectors edition.
"More than a mighty epic, the Mahabharata is a source of spiritual strength for all people for all times."
