For the first with a team of writers headed by renowned scholar and Sahithya Academy award winner Mr. Prabhanchan has come out with a well researched version of Mahabharatham. The story is told elaborately and at the same time tautly without missing out the finer nuances of the epic.
Once we hear the word Mahabharatham the first thing that comes in our mind is Pandavas, Gauravas,Draupathi, Shaguni & Krishna. But for the first time in this show the viewer will get to know about Shanthanu, Ganga Devi & the sacrifice of Young Bheeshma and various other interesting characters never seen on screen before.
This television series is mounted like a film with all its glory & grandeur. Massive sets with nearly 700 actors & junior actors, elegant costumes, expensive jewellery and well conceived action sequences aptly supported by high-end computer graphics.
The best of technicians from TV & Film industry are involved in creating this great epic. Seasoned film music director Deva is creating the title song and scoring the background score for the first time for Television. The title song was written by Pa. Vijay and sung by none other then Shankar Mahadevan. This high voltage song was choreographed by Ashokrajan and captured in Red One camera by veteran cinematographer Ganesh Kumar. The action sequences are choreographed by ‘Killi’ Sekar on a massive scale The starcast includes Poovilangu Mohan, O.A. K. Sundar, Ilavarasan, Devipriya, Pooja Lokesh, Iswarya and others.
