This would be the movie I'll be looking forward to, only disappointment, Its slated to release in 2007, It will be one of the biggest budget ever to be spent on an Indian movie, rough estimated 300 Crores. Yes it will be a trilogy, once in the theaters it will easily be one of the best movies in the world, nothing would compete with it, rumours are that the special effect creators for Lord of the Rings will be making the special effects for this movie too. It will cast Sharukh Khan, Amir Khan and Rani Mukherjee.
The movie is Mahabharata -> Official Website
Today I was watching B.R Chopra's Mahabharata being aired on Jaya TV. I didn't quiet like the series. Reason - It lacked the grandeur of the epic, It lacked the subtlety of the great characters. Somehow felt as though it was a puppet show. I thought if a story like Harry Potter could make wonders, How great would it be if Mahabharatha was retold as a movie like this? I was sure that this epic would be made into a movie in the future, never expected to stumble on an website within an hour !!
Countdown to 2007 starts now ...
