| Fresh Breeze in Hindi television
In India, Television is stagnant. The youth are bombarded with daily soaps with women planning,plotting and scheming to snatch something away in a large business house. A story is stretched until the grand daughter of the protagonist does not reclaim her honor and love. And for the umpteenth time, these people want you to keep believing that the grandest and most important occupation for all noble people in the country is to keep crying and shouting over spilled tea, property disputes,lost love and so on.

Frankly. There is so much more to life than that,Indians!

Few times does it happen that a guy like me puts away his 'Peaceful Warrior','Batman Begins' and other movies to catch a show on Indian television. And by god,it was this show. Blown away in each and every episode by the music, the dialogs, the action, the intensity and the wisdom of Chanakya. The early texts on one of the greatest Indian kings Chandragupta Maurya (1st) and his mentor Chanakya transcend into a highly inspiring, thrilling and deeply moving TV series. Performances of lead actors(especially Manish Badhwaa as Chanakya) including the kid Chandragupta are fantastic!

Out of the 105 episodes, the first 50 are impeccable. Beyond these, usual tendencies of Indian television intrude a bit. Shoddy graphics, stretched episodes, a side love story distracting our mighty-to-be -king ruin the fun. However the show soon recovers, bringing in brilliant diplomacy tactics, espionage and so on. (No it's not a copy,it's original from Chandragupta historic texts and the writer of the show) For the dismal Indian youth searching for inspiration in movies and Manga, this is a must watch.
