I was still reeling from the after effects of watching the great disaster "Tashan", and thought nothing could match in terms of utter stupidity and nonsense value, but I had underestimated a woman who goes by the name of Ekta Kapoor.
Well, yesterday i had seen an episode of the new mental assault launched by her that goes by the name of "Kahaani Hamaarey Mahabharat Ki" (yeah, she did not spare even that!), and by God, did i regret my decision to check it out! I have yet to see something as hysterical as this, and could not believe my eyes when I saw how people were flying about in the action sequences. The serial looks like a bad mish-mash patch up work, a grotesque mixture of "Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon" and "300" to say the least. And please, can she not make her directors to get the poor actors to act properly? I mean nothing about them seemed good-their body language, their diction, their dialogue delivery, their expressions-all of it was crass, vulgar, streetly and melodramatic to say the least. It seemed more like a saas-bahu kitchen politics saga being unleashed like the brahmastra.
On the flip side though, the effects and the cinematography, along with the costumes were actually credible and realistic. Do you think Draupadi was wearing twenty yards of fabric in her daily life? That is all I would say to people who think that the girl was dressed inappropriately.
