Chandra Nandini Serial: Review
The serial claims to have stories that weren’t recorded in the history. However, almost everything shown in these episodes of the serial is controversial. Everything shown in the serial is different from the history , and is far away from what we know about Chandragupta Maurya.
So, this serial is going to raises many questions in the coming days. We can start with- is in reality Chandragupta Maurya’s father’s name was Suryagupta Maurya? Was Chandragupt a prince?was he not son of a dasi?
The Positive point of Chandra Nandni Serial
The serial is being produced by Balaji Telefilms’ and the production house is well known for good plots, scripts and screnplays that always include controversial subjects and story.
One more positive point about this serial, we can tell is that its going to raise some historical awareness among the viewers, who will surely search the history of Chandragupta Maurya.
The No No point of Chandra Nandni Serial
Apart from its luxurious set,expensive dresses of the characters, the serial lacks the historical fictional charm from its very first episode.
The dialogues appear to be more on the modern side and lacks the ancient Indian accents .
It looks we have to wait for the story of Chandragupta Maurya and Nandini to start, so that hopefully once the lead character of serial starts playing their respective roles, the serial will regain its charm and charisma.
