Remember the good old days when weekends were all about being glued to television screens, watching mythological stories? Delhi, it’s time to relive those memories as BookMyShow brings Mahabharata-The Epic Tale to your city, this weekend. Written and directed by Puneet Issar, the play is told from the perspective of wounded brothers Duryodhan and Karna. The focus is primarily on their friendship that defies caste and class — an aspect that is still a prevalent issue in the socio-economic fabric of the country. Narrated by Meghna Malik, who also portrays the role of Dharti, Mahabharata delivers a message that is relevant at every stage of life and across generations.
From a power-packed cast to dialogue delivery, rich and vibrant costumes to the grandeur of the sets, lighting, music, and props, every element of Mahabharata — The Epic Tale adds to the magnificence of the play.
