Summary
"What Homer's Iliad is to Greek civilization and the great classics of yore are to different nations of the world, the Mahabharat is to India. Written by Rishi Ved Vyas, the ancient philosopher-thinker who was known to be the fountain of all human knowledge. The Mahabharat has been translated in many languages and even presented in ballet form in western and oriental countries. But the Mahabharat is not an abstruse philosophical or religious tract. It encompasses all shades of human nature from the utterly base to the completely divine; its high point is Lord Krishna's message to humanity, the Song Celestial, the divine Geeta, acknowledged to be the quintessence of all knowledge embodied in the Hindu ethos. To capture the magnificence, the grandeur and the drama of this great epic was the dream of producer-director B.R. Chopra, one of India's eminent filmmakers. Enormous resources [have] been staked by B.R. TV, to bring the richness and grandeur of the period to which Mahabharat belonged. Rated as the most popular program on Indian TV, the serial consists of 94 episodes each of a running time of 45 minutes."--Container
