Chakravartin Ashoka Samrat serial on Colors TV is a historical fiction based on the life of Samrat Ashoka, the third Mauryan Samrat who ruled Magadh and established a state by bringing a lot of province under one rule. A powerful Samrat, he continued the legacy of his grandfather the Great Chandragupta Maurya, the founder of the Maurya kingdom.
It is indeed interesting to watch the story of Chakravartin Ashoka Samrat live on TV. Though we are enjoying the retellings despite all the deviations, there are certain illogical tracks in the serial which is not digestible at all. Here we share 5 such illogical things in the serial.
Bindusar & Sushim Reached Takshashila in A Single Day (Rather Single Episode) By Road
While it took many days (episodes) for Ashoka to reach Takshashila by sea-route, it took only a day (1 episode) for Bindusar to reach Takshashila that too when he was on horse. Isn’t sea route faster than road? Then how come Bindusar reached faster while Ashoka took such a long time to reach his destination? Why so mean writers?
Samrat Bindusar Asked His Wife to Go for Yatra Without Much Security
How can a Magadh Samrat Bindusar allow his pregnant wife to go for a yatra without the presence of powerful and efficient men of his army. Besides, how come the Samrat has no idea where his Rani is. Amusingly, the Samrat didn’t even know if she has reached her destination or not. Logically, he should have known that she has reached Takshashila and Ashoka is alive and not dead.
Ashoka’s Revolution in Takshashila Should Have Reached Bindusar’s Ears
Ashoka was fighting against Kichak, the people of Takshashila considered him as their saviour. He even made Kichak bend on his feet. However, the Samrat of Magadh knew nothing about any activity in Takshashila. He was absolutely clueless and even mourned his son’s death. Isn’t that highly illogical? After all, he is the most dreaded and feared Samrat and has a strong spy system.
Dharma Who Wanted To Find Chanakya’s Killer Has Not Shared Any Info Till Yet
Dharma has clues about the killers of Chanakya. In fact, this is the reason why Charumitra and Helena wanted her to go from the palace. However, now that she has returned, she is neither revealing her secrets to Bindusar nor discussing it with Ashoka. Practically, she should have uttered the same at least in front of Ashoka.
The Kaling Raja Is in Magadh When His Wife and Praja Is Suffering from Past 12 Years
When everybody thought that the Kaling Raja was dead, his wife didn’t believe and waited for her husband’s release all the while. This is the reason why Kaurwaki came to Takshashila so that she could bring her father back.
However, instead of returning to Kaling and meeting his wife and praja, the King decides to be Magadh’s guest for a while. This is seriously something beyond our imagination.
These were few of the illogical sequence and plots in Chakravartin Ashoka Samrat serial. There are definitely more. Do share some if the things that you found totally baseless and illogical.
