Peter Brook’s The Mahabharata (1990)

Was speaking to someone today about Peter Brook's rendition of The Mahabharata. Wonderful portrayal of the classic story – quite contrary to the (in) famous BR Chopra version that we grew up on. I do remember liking it a lot as I was watching it, but that was more because the Ramayan was made quite badly – IMHO – and this was a welcome increase in speed 

Funny thing is that Doordarshan - yes the infamous one - actually aired this when we were kids - although I suspect that it was aired only on DD2 (for those fortunate souls with a whopping TWO channels!)
