Sampoorna Ramayana (Special Edition)
The noble prince Rama (an incarnation of Lord Vishnu) is exiled from Ayodhya on his stepmother’s whim, and his loyal brother Lakshmana and beautiful wife, Sita, follow him into the forest despite the many dangers it holds. But when Sita is kidnapped by Ravana, king of the rakshasas, Rama must go deep into himself to find the physical and emotional resources he needs to rescue her. An idealized heroic tale about the struggle between good and evil, the Ramayana is also an intensely personal story of family relationships, love and loss, duty and honour, of harem intrigue, petty jealousies and destructive ambitions-all this played out in a universe populated by larger-than-life humans, gods and celestial beings, wondrous animals and terrifying demons.
Ramayan is a television series based on the Hindu Epic, Ramayana. The series was written and directed by Ramanand Sagar and originally aired on Doordarshan in 1987. The leading roles of Rama, Lakshmana and Sita were played by Arun Govil, Sunil Lahri and Deepika Chikhalia.
The epics of Ramayana and Mahabharata are the cultural and religious heritage of India. Children used to hear these stories from their grandparents and other elders. In the late 1980s, new generations of Indians became familiar with the epics through television. Ramanand Sagar’s Ramayan was telecast by Doordarshan and it became hugely popular among viewers. The writer based his script on the original Valmiki Ramayana and also on Tulsidas’ Hindi Ramayan.
The story follows the fortunes of Rama, the Prince of Ayodhya, who is sent on exile by the machinations of his step-mother Kaikeyi and her manipulative maid, Mantara. He is accompanied on his fourteen year exile by his wife, Sita and his brother, Lakshmana.
Rama, Sita and Lakshmana spend their years in exile in beautiful surroundings and are often accompanied by Rishis and other wise men. However, the last year changes that idyllic experience. The Rakshasa Ravana, who rules Lanka, kidnaps Sita after he is enamoured by her beauty.
Rama and Lakshmana set off in search of her and assemble an army of monkeys to invade Lanka and rescue Sita. The epic story is presented with devotion in this series which has enthralled viewers throughout the country.
