  1. Loved it ..a complete revision of history … but as they say in the end …it’s just a beginning they didn’t even start with real stuff before documentary ended . Something I disagree with though that establishment of mahabharat as real story gave a feeling to indians that there is a real history before colonial powers acme into …not true at all there is very real history apart from mahabharat … Buddhism ..nalanda univ before that ..mauryas ..list goes on

  2. very very very well done documentary! excelente! 10/10! no doubt!
