Storyline

The noble prince Rama (an incarnation of Lord Vishnu) is exiled from Ayodhya on his stepmother's whim, and his loyal brother Lakshmana and beautiful wife, Sita, follow him into the forest despite the many dangers it holds. But when Sita is kidnapped by Ravana, king of the rakshasas, Rama must go deep into himself to find the physical and emotional resources he needs to rescue her. An idealized heroic tale about the struggle between good and evil, the Ramayana is also an intensely personal story of family relationships, love and loss, duty and honour, of harem intrigue, petty jealousies and destructive ambitions-all this played out in a universe populated by larger-than-life humans, gods and celestial beings, wondrous animals and terrifying demons.

User Reviews

 
Best adaption of one of the greatest epics in the world
29 March 2020 | by abthebossSee all my reviews

Sagar's original Ramayana was literally brilliant. The show had ensemble cast. Everyone just nailed it in their respective roles. But my favorite performance was Sunil Lahri's performance as Lakshman. I think no one has given such an impressive performance in Laxman's character till date. What can I say about Arvind Trivedi's performance as Ravana? He just nailed it. Arun Govil and Dipika will remain Godly figures for people. But above all big thanks to late Ramanand Sagarji for creating this Gold.

Doesn't matter how many versions of Ramayana will come but this Ramayan will remain Gold. If you are fan of Mythological/Devotional shows than you will never get bored of watching Sagar's Ramayan and B.R. Chopra's Mahabharat.
