    May 27th onwards Sony will start airing a TV show on Maharana Pratap, Monday to Thursday at 10 PM IST.
    Amitabh Bachchan will narrate a part of the opening episode of forthcoming show "Bharat Ka Veer Putra - Maharana Pratap".

    Let me give the disclaimer right away.
    a) This is a TV serial, so don't expect accurate history to be depicted (one of the reasons why I didn't post this in History section).
    b) Looking at the promos, I would not keep very high hopes but it wouldn't be disappointing either.
    Seems to be watchable overall. Lets see after a few episodes. :)

    We can use this thread for discussions pertaining to anything shown in the TV serial.
    Promo videos playlist is here - YouTube

    I always wanted to watch programs on Maharana Pratap and Shivaji, and I welcome it, but the problem is that they start with the childhood days of those Kings which is boring enough, moreover they 'secularise' these serials and hide many things which inspired those heroes to fought.

    Is this babu? Btw, this is just propoganada as it casts them as rebels which would legitimatize muslim rule and make it 100% when in reality it was a war aka not full control over anything.

    Google myth of muslim rule in India to see what I mean.

    saw another ep where the boy Pratap is forced to watch an execution by the Maharana. What a tough world they live in.

    Where is this being made? All the fort palace look very nice. Will visit these historic places, Chittor, Udaigarh, and all those forts one day.

    I hope they give due credit to the role of the Bhils.

    Why only Bheels, there were many other tribal communities and even Muslims who were part of Rana Pratap's Army mainly :

    Garasias
    Bhils
    Minas
    Gaduliya lohars
    Sahariyas
    Damors

    Ok so I saw the first few episodes. Seems ok till now, except a bit too much dramatizing in some scenes.
    They've declared up front that the serial is only taking inspiration from childhood incidents of Pratap's life. In other words - 'Don't expect even half the proper history'.
    Anyway, my fear is if they'll mess it up like a masala serial, the way that programme on Rani Laxmi Bai ended up.
    The behavior of Shams Khan's character is a mockery in itself. I'm sure none of the Afghans chieftains in that era could have behaved so stupid.

    Also, something tells me they'll drag this serial into Pratap's childhood till eternity.
    They may not have the guts to take on bull of mature Pratap's history by its horns after all. :(

    In 90s a TV serial on Pratap began and ended abruptly after ended episodes. Production quality and acting was many times better.
    Guess who was playing Pratap - Vinod Khanna.

    These so called "Historic" serials are nothing but dramatized version like of Ekta kapur's sas-bahu and far from reality.

    I remember how they downgraded the new Mahabharat :facepalm:

    Yeah, I used to watch that serial.

    The opening episode with Rana Sanga (played by Mukesh Khanna to perfection) was very inspiring & ultimate delight to watch. Man, he looked like he was the real, Rana Sangram Singh with 80 wounds, 1 eye & 1 arm. Even subsequent episodes were all great.

    Vinod Khanna (playing Rana Pratap), though looking fat & somewhat aged, played the role with the deserved aplomb & panache.

    Don't know why, they could not sustain it. Maybe, sponsors were few & not willing to pay enough.

    You are right. I don't even want to think about the Mahabharat you are talking about. I would rather watch "Sansani" :frusty:

    However, I find the original Mahabharat having a great "repeat value". I can watch it any number of times & continue to relish it.

    The original epics in 80's and 90's were just great and cant be repeated ever.They were just once in a lifetime.I could watch it numerous times and learn.

    And guess what we got a new crappy serial "Jodha-Akbar" :facepalm:

    yeah, it's a national conspiracy to keep productive people occupied in "things that matter", rather than foozling away their time in front of so called "idiot-box" :tsk:

    I'm liking it more and more now. They showed a full description of the jauhar ceremony and the explanation of why it was done.
