Entire blame to Makers of the show
A review from a hardcore happy fan to a hardcore angry and disappointed fan as the show progressed.
CAS could have been an excellent show. It started with a bang with awesome script, excellent actors and great set. People used to flock in front of TV awaiting for this serial.
Simply put Contiloe Entertainment, the Makers and Ashok Banker took gold and turned into dust. Entire fault is theirs alone. The show got impossibly boring, very unrealistic in terms of story lines and character plot lines. The audience felt cheated. Too much nonsense and bollywoodish bullshit drama. Great deal of advertisements and such fake toy swords and weapons. Very low class action sequences.
Other historical serials running along side CAS such as Siya ke Ram (excellent work by Devdutt Patnaik and team) and Suryaputra Karn had far better scripts and special effects. They ran their course with great ratings and kept the audience glued and got their love.
Now it seems the show is going off air in October which was expected. It's quite amazing no one actually died of boredom watching this show. I hope the the story of Samrat Ashoka will be retold in future on TV probably by the more able and talented team.
Do not take Indian audience as fool and learn something from International/ National successful historical shows if you want success.
Good Bye CAS with a heavy heart
