Classic - best version of Ramayan ever made
24 January 2015 | by agrawalanupamSee all my reviews

Ramanand Sagar researched many versions of the countless Ramayan written by countless poets in the journey to produce this masterpiece. This version of the Ramayan is mainly based on Goswami Tulsidas Shree Ramcharitmanas. Even after almost 30 years and many follow-on versions and attempts by others, the depiction and narration by Ramanand Sagar is on a different plane. The music, visuals and singers are all enchanting due to the innocence and the type of cinema of the 1980s. Ramanand Sagar managed to extract near perfect performances from all the characters of his cast. Thank you to Ramanand Sagar for producing this masterpiece.
