PlotEdit

It's a dynastic struggle for the throne of Hastinapur, the kingdom ruled by the Kuru clan. The two branches of the family that participate in the struggle are the Kauravas and the Pandavas. Although the Kauravas are the senior branch of the family, Duryodhan, the eldest Kaurava, is younger than Yudhishthira, the eldest Pandav. The seeds of the climactic battle of Kurukshetra were laid in the boyhood days of the Kauravas and Pandavas, when Shakuni the maternal uncle of the Kauravas poisoned the mind of Duryodhana. This series ends before the Kurkshetra war actually occurs.

ReceptionEdit

Writing for Livemint, Padmaparna Ghosh wrote that "Ekta Kapoor's Mahabharat is another complicated multi-character soap which has revenge, hatred jealousy and family feuds on an epic scale, which for a Mythological series sums epic disaster".[7] Actor Mukesh Khanna stated that producer Ekta Kapoor made so horrendous epic saga which was incomprehensible with the characterisation and costumes of the mythological characters. He also stated that the way Kapoor made the saga was a mockery of Mahabharata.[8]

Navya Sinha another critic wrote for Hindustan Times that "Ekta Kapoor's Mahabharat is all about Six-pack abs, waxed chests, off-shoulder blouses and a scantily-clad Draupadi decked in a chiffon sari".[9]

The sets of the series cost about ₹14 crores.[10]
