A historical drama, ‘Maharana Pratap – Bharat Ka Veer Putra‘ takes us back to the 16th century Rajputana into the lives of the Mewar royal family. A biopic of India’s first freedom fighter, the serial not only depicts the shurveer’s life as a warrior, but also his personal life which was not known before the serial started, at least to the general public!
Produced by Contiloe Entertainment, the Sony TV historical drama is high on both – the actual story as well as the fictional elements, keeping us hooked from Monday to Thursday from past two and a half years now.
Here we share few reasons why we love watching Maharana Pratap – Bharat Ka Veer Putra so much!
The Exceptional Love Story Between the Lead Pair – Pratap and Ajabde
Our history books bestowed us with the legendary tale of Maharana Pratap, his valour, patriotism, sacrifice and his determination to fight with the foreign invaders right till his death, but no emphasis was ever given to his personal life.
However, Contiloe’s Maharana Pratap, not only illustrates Pratap’s childhood, but also gives us in-depth picture of his personal life, especially his love life. The serial with the right mis-match of history, fantasy and fiction gives us an interesting tale that makes the serial a must-watch.
The chemistry of Pratap and Ajabde has been intriguing right from the start, than whether, it was portrayed by Faisal Khan and Roshni Walia or is essayed by the current lead Ssharad Malhotra and Rachana Parulkar, the love story allures the spectators.
It Shows Us the Rich History of Rajputs and Rajputana
Although we have heard about the rich history of Rajputana, we get to witness and experience the same through this serial – Right from the culture, the beautiful dresses, the traditions, festivals and even their customs. In addition, the show rightly depicts how brave, loyal and trustworthy Rajputs were, who could go to any extent to keep their words.
The Royal Family of Mewar and the Important People During 16th Century
Though Maharana Pratap is famous, he is often highly overshadowed by the Mughal Emperor Akbar. To be honest, we Indians know more about the Mughal family, their wives, their sons, their generals, their foster parents, their concubines and what not….However, when it comes to the son of our soil and their family, we are entirely clueless. Thanks to our history books.
But, now that the serial has done a basic research, and added their own set of imaginations with proper elements, the serial helps us to gain good knowledge of our past. So, besides knowing all the names of Akbar’s main wives and the name of his son’s love interest, we do know Maharana Pratap’s mothers and brothers name.
Also, the Family Conspiracy that didn’t leave even the Royal family of Mewar
Yes, I’m talking about Dheer Bai. Though many of the plots shown by the serial is imaginary and highly fictional, one cannot ignore the basic fact that she wanted her son Jagmal to become the next heir. Though, this plot is yet to come in the serial, we love to hate the antagonist for all the right reasons.
Because of the Brilliant Performances by the Actors!
From protagonist to antagonist and even the side actors, every actor in the serial is loved for his/her performance. No wonder, they bring history alive in front of us through their brilliant reel performance.
