There is a huge war planned between the Kauravas and the Pandavas called Mahabharat. Dirdurashtra and Gandhari are married, and they give birth to 100 sons. Gandhari’s husband is blind and hence she ties a cloth on her eyes and promises to keep her eyes closed forever. This creates hatred in Gandhari’s brother Shakuni. He takes revenge by turning Gandhari’s sons against Pandu brothers (Arjun, Beem, Yudhisthira, Nakul, and Sahadev). This is the key reason for the war. However, many twists unfold with the entry of Lord Krishna, who is responsible for a paradigm shift as he is supporting the Pandavas.
Karna is a good friend of Duryodhana, and he helps him greatly during the war. He is the ruler of Anga Kingdom. He was originally born to Kunti, however she hides it. Therefore, a chariot rider adopts Karna and that becomes the problem. Karna wants to rule a kingdom and nobody offers him a kingdom except Duryodhan. Therefore, he is very loyal and faithful to his friend. The war takes place for 18 days in a place called Kurukshetra. In the battle, Abhimanyu (Arjun’s son), Guru Dron, Dushasan, Shakuni, Duryodhana and all children of Pandavas are killed. Finally, truth wins and Pandavas take over the throne of Hastinapur. This serial runs for about 20 minutes and completed in September 2014. The title song starts with “Hai Katha Sangram Ki” and won millions of heart.
