He fought on the fourth day and scared Bhisma, on the 14th day he also fought. Chopra. Mistake 7 - Yudhishthira calling duryodhana a fool. Mistake 2 - Arjuna defeats karna by diarming him instead of making him retreat. In the mahabharata Vidura never informed Bhisma of this. Mahabharat was produced by B. R. Chopra and directed by his son Ravi Chopra, … Mistake 3 - Sakuni killing his servant. Mistake 20 - Karna telling Sakuni that he was not the chief when the war went past sunset. Great effort. Mistake 4 - Duryodhana telling Arjuna not to hold back when Arjuna stopped firing arrows at him. Mistake 14 - Sakuni giving Duryodhana instructions on how to protect Bhisma.

Mistake 4 - Karna claiming that he was just listening to the noises of war the whole day. He died on the 14th night but he fought every day during the previous fourteen days. In the actual mahabharata ninety five percent of the details of these invasions of Jarasandha are not shown and narrated. Mistake 1 - Kauravas and Karna are shown to be fleeing against Drupada for the wrong reasons. These are from the original distributors of the TV serial. Mistake 3 - Shalya saluting Uttara's corpse.

Since the show has done brilliantly (as evident from the TRP ratings) and the lockdown has extended, DD has decided to have a re-run of the show on DD Retro channel (from May 3 to 26, at 3 pm). Actor Sumeet Raghavan, best known for his role in TV series 'Sarabhai Vs Sarabhai' was part of BR Chopra's epic show 'Mahabharat'. In actual Mahabharata they were pretty happy and joyful after this. They did not show how Bharata performed a sacrifice and got a son named "Bhumanyu". Mistake 2 - Dhrishtadyumna saying that he would have killed Bhisma if it was not for his boon. Free delivery on qualified orders. It is fake because what really happened is that Dhritarashtra was not given the throne due to his "blindness" but Vidura had NOTHING TO DO with the incident. Mistake 1 - Lack of karna's presence when Yudhishthira went to the Kaurava side unarmed. In this episode Bhisma says that kasi princesses have always wed kuru princes. Not only is this statement of bhisma factually inaccurate, he NEVER SAID THAT to begin with! Mistake 25 - Karna attempting to stop him but being shutup.

Duryodhana and Bhima's mace fight, in mahabharata they did not have a mace fight during the tournament, aswathama stopped them before they could even fight. Mistake 13 - Krishna smiling at the death of Ghatotkaca. Mistake 4 - Arjuna talking to Draupadi about how Sakuni must be sleepless without having found them.

Mistake 18 - yudhishthira and the Pandavas coming to the Kaurava camp. Later, Yudhishthir is made the king of Indraprastha and Pandavas conduct Rajsuya Yagna where Draupadi insults Duryodhana.

It was the only one to show some actual facts like Karna being a student of Drona, the suta adviser Kanika etc. Mistake 7 - Duhsasana saying that Yudhishthira will have to travel on foot without a chariot. Mistake 2 - Draupadi claiming she should not have said that. Mistake 9 - Drona reminding Karna of his defeat at Virat war. Mistake 5 - Abhimanyu and kritavarma fighting each other. You will find maybe one or two incidents at best of them ever having a conversation with eachother in the Mahabharata. In actuality it was Vyasa that helped them not Krishna/Balarama. I have started watching BR Chopra's Mahabharata, its boring but because the stories are intriguing so I am willing to complete all the episodes. Mistake 4 - Dhritarashtra claiming that Indraprastha is Duryodhana's but if it was his then he would have given it to the sons of pandu. So many scenes are a direct ripoff of BR Chopra's Mahabharat like the "andhe ka putra aandha" scene. No he only felt sad once he entered the tent/camp. Then Jayadratha runs away on a horse. They showed a white Krishna, a white Draupadi, suiting the indian mentality that only light-skinned people can be beautiful and relevant. His armor was gold not black in original mahabharata. Mistake 8 - Draupadi telling Duhsasana that she has not had a ritual bath. Ganguly was applauded for her performance in the sequence. But in this show the sister just looks at bhima and gets attracted to him, but then hidimva attacks bhima. ganga had no relevance in Mahabharata after Satyavati's entry get over it! BR Chopra’s was a good version, but you cannot say that by criticising SPM. Chopra Mahabharat. During this time Karna was only talking to Duryodhana, Bhisma, Drona, Dhritarashtra etc in the sabha. Mistake 5 - Karna calling Krishna a maryada purush. Mistake 3 - Repeated mention of the dice game mistake of Yudhishthira. First of all we don't know if the vastraharan happened.

Mistake 5 - Parasurama meeting Krishna, giving Krishna his Sudarshan Chakra, which is a fake story. Mistake 7 - Karna asking Arjuna to show him what his sage Drona has taught him. Mistake 3 - Sakuni losing a dice game to Yudhishthira. If anything then Sakuni was only supposed to tell them of the words of Dhritarashtra. In the Mahabharata Draupadi went their with a single piece of cloth on that was still stained with blood. Mistake 4 - Virata talking to Sudeshna about their son. As per Mahabharata pandavas went to alot of countries in disguise incognito, before entering ekachakra and after the death of Hidimva. Mistake 4 - Rukmini writes a letter to Krishna. Mistake 2 - It is implied in this episode that Sakuni never went back to gandhar. But it has the death of Putana in it. With all of it's flaws it is still a much better and more authentic tv serial than legendary bakwas shows like Suryaputra Karn, Dharmakshetra, Starbharata, Sri krishna tv series, Jai mahabharat etc. Ekalavya said his father (Hiranyadhanu) is a officer in Jarasandha's army.

Mistake 12 - Aswathama complaining to Drona about the behavior of Suyodhana and Karna. Mistake 4 - Karna asking for the Vasavi dart after the armor is cut apart. Mistake 6 - Uluka calling the pandavas napunsaks (eunuchs). In original mahabharata Karna gained that dart before he cut his armor. Mistake 2 - Sairandhri talking about Draupadi. They actually used Brahmasira not Brahmastra. Mistake 7 - Draupadi saying that Karna will be listening to the sounds of war just like women. Mistake 3 - A prisoner escaping the Kaurava tent, to make it to the Pandavas. The training of Duryodhana under Balarama happened but not like this, the chronology of events is off.

The latter shows the deaths of Bheeshma, Drona, Karna, Abhimanyu, Shalya, Shakuni, Jayadrata, Ghatotkacha, 100 Kauravas, 5 sons of Draupadi and many other warriors in the war leading to the victory of Pandavas over Kauravas. Kahaani hamarey mahabharat ki (2008), bad show but better than most modern day ones. Mistake 4 - Draupadi going to the forest with a different cloth.

Mistake 6 - Bhisma's dialogues with Vidur (vidura) at the end of the episode and of Vana Parva (literally). In mahabharata he never said that so BR Chopra lied to us again.

Mistake 1 - Kunti trying to go to the forest like shes about that life. Since today is the independence day of India (August 15th), i will expose the truth once again. Never. It was all set up by Drona not by Aswathama in the actual mahabharata. Mistake 4 - Karna demanding an answer from Bhisma on why Arjuna always defeats him (Karna).

Mistake 3 - Karna saved Yuyutsu and stops Duryodhana. BR Chopra mahabharat (1988-1990), only the music/soundtrack was good, all the songs sucked.
