{> Ramanand Sagar's Ramayan & Shri Krishna AT#1 <}

This thread is dedicated to the discussion of all the mythological shows and movies the late Dr. Ramanand Sagar directed in his lifetime.
As many if not most of you know, before the creation of this Mythological Masti Forum, there used to be forums for all the new mythological shows (most of which are locked now), but none for the old ones. Finding this highly unfair, I had at first tried to convince the mods of IF to create just one forum for the old mythological shows, but they told me that the purpose of IF is for the discussion of television shows and movies currently running, but that the Chat Clubs Forum is a great place to discuss anything/anyone which does not have a forum.
And so that's how the Ramanand Sagar Chat Clubs came into existence in the CC Forum. It was all due to group work only that they spanned five, greatly fun chat clubs before our fellow member Lola convinced the mods to open one single forum for all Mythological Shows...and here we are!Dancing
However, I came to know that some members have missed the close knit feeling of our past CCs, and so I am creating this thread to discuss all the mythological shows/movies of Ramanand Sagar just like we had done in our CCs...the purpose of this thread is to give all Ramanand Sagar fans the feeling of a homey CC again, within our own beloved forum instead of travelling somewhere else on IF where many new members do not even know how to find the CC Forum.
So keep this thread running, guys! Other than discussions and chatting, feel free also post your creations and pics which are from RS's shows/movies or RS actors' other shows/movies. It will be just like a 6th CC...pretend we are continuing from where we left off!Wink And welcome once again to Ramanand Sagar's Palatial Palace #1!Hug
Here is a list of all the past FCs and CCs we had dedicated to RS's shows...if you are a new member, feel free to browse through them at your own pace.Big smile

Ramayan (Bal Kand - Yudh Kand) - 78 episodes
Luv Kush (Uttar Kand) - 39 episodes
Dr. Ramanand Sagar's Sampoorn Ramayan, the first ever mythological show to be shown on television and more than 100 episodes in length, has achieved the status as World's Most Viewed Mythological Serial until 2003. Many critics wondered during its fame while its first telecast and after...what could have caused such popularity for a religious show not only amongst 100s of 1000s of Hindus worldwide but other religious groups as well? Many odd and touching stories were reported by the media like the one of two Muslim brothers who were separated due to a family feud coming together after the touching scene between Lord Ram and his younger brother Bharat during the Bharat Milap episode, or the one where a young girl regained her memory after a long memory loss because the tune of Ramayan's opening song was most familiar to her.

Many have thought that since Ramayan was telecasted at a time when television and television shows themselves were rare, the serial grabbed so much attention. If so, why is Ramanand Sagar's first ever devotional serial, which is like seeing Shri Ramcharitmanas itself on TV, still dear and precious to so many hearts? More than 20 years after its first telecast, Ramayan is still shown and re-shown on not one, but many channels, and it continues to attract not only the old viewers, but newer generation viewers as well. One cannot deny that Ramayan contains magic which only blessings by God can bestow and continues to hold a special place in many people's hearts. Dr. Ramanand Sagar's hard work, dedication, and devotion for Lord Shri Ram, Ravindra Jain's soul touching music, and last but not least, the hard work of the perfect cast and crew is shown in every episode, every scene, every dialogue of Ramayan.

Shri Krishna - 221 episodes
Ramanand Sagar's Shri Krishna is truly an epic serial. In over 200 episodes, it covers three epochs worth of Hindu Mythology, and even touches on the lives and teachings of recent saints like Shri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu and Surdasji. Beginning with Matsya Avtaar, Lord Vishnu's first earthly incarnation, it presents almost every tale from the Vaishnav tradition in a way that is entertaining, educational, and enlightening all at the same time. The heartfelt performances of the cast will draw you in; the detailed account of the scriptures will provide you with all the facts; and the Sagarji's inimitable screenplay and dialogues will leave you with life lessons that you will remember forever.

Sagarji's painstaking research for the show involved combing Shrimad Bhagwat Mahapuran, the Brahma Vairvart, Agni, Harivansh, Padma, Vishnu, and Markandeya Purans, and the Garg Samhita among other scriptural sources. Through the rarely recounted but highly enlightening stories found in these scriptures regarding each character's past life, viewers understand the characters and the events of the epic better than ever before. Previous presentations of Lord Krishna's earthly activities have only skimmed their surface, which sometimes leads to misconceptions that make his extraordinary leelas seem ordinary and have people wondering why he is worshipped by billions around the world. There is no better way to erase such doubts and replace them with devotion than treating yourself to Ramanand Sagar's Shri Krishna.

Must Watch!
Ramanand Sagar's Ramayan is a modern day miracle

Ramanand Sagar's mega epic TV Serial "RAMAYAN", when first telecasted in 1987, created unprecedented records. It blazed new trails all over the world with a unique distinction of achieving something which even prophets, scholars, great thinkers, religious leaders, social reformers and politicians could not achieve in centuries.
The message of "Ramayan" cut across all the barriers of caste, creed, language and political boundaries. The euphoria that "RAMAYAN" created and documented by the media during its telecast, is itself a legend.
Media Documentation


During that sacred three quarters of an hour, the Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh, the largest Indian State, refused to take any telephone calls.

In Jammu and Kashmir, angry viewers attacked a power station when electricity cuts disrupted the telecast.
A lawyers' conference in Patna had to be delayed when its opening coincided with the telecast and nobody turned up.
A bride was late for her wedding ceremony in Satara in Maharashtra because she was watching Ramayan.
Two ministers turned up one hour late for her swearing- in ceremony at Rashtrapati Bhavan. They said they were busy watching "Ramayan".
The Bharat Milap scene brought in Bhopal two Muslim brothers on inimical terms, together after having lived separately for ten years. So moved was the elder brother by the serial, that he transported all possessions which were the reason of the split, to the younger brother's house.
In a Ranchi mental asylum, usually rowdy or violent inmates ' on Sundays ' when they were out in open pelted stones on monkeys sitting on trees in the compound, watched "Ramayan" peacefully. When they saw HANUMANJI performing various tasks for LORD SHRI RAM, their attitude towards monkeys changed. They started leaving food for the animals and even erected a Samadhi for a dead monkey.
In Bombay, "Ramayan" even cured a boy of amnesia. After a serious accident, the boy could not remember anything from his past life. Several efforts by his parents and treatments could not revive his memory. One day his sister asked him to see "Ramayan." A faint recollection of the theme music of the serial triggered off a positive response and the boy soon recovered with subsequent treatment.
A funeral procession in Muzaffarnagar was delayed by an hour to enable mourners to watch Ramayan.
In Lucknow, distraught patients complained that doctors and nurses had abandoned them while the show was on air.
A man died in Karnataka while watching "Ramayana". The family members attended to him and cremated after the serial got over.
Many churches all over India rescheduled their Sunday masses so that church goers could watch the serial.
After watching the scene in which Laxman becomes unconscious on being hit by Indrajit's arrow ' NAAGPASH ' a wealthy businessman in Madras fell seriously ill and went into coma at the shock of Laxman wounded. The credibility and source of sequence created a great furor, but the Sagar's stood their ground. But when they received a request from the business man's doctors' to help them revive the old man the Sagar unit worked round the clock and prepared a special clipping which they air dashed to Madras. Only after the man saw Laxman reviving back to life in the new clipping ' also based on the authentic research ' did he recover back to normal life from his coma.
A wedding baraat arrived in Lucknow station 9.30 a.m. on Sunday only to find that all the coolies as well as the rickshawallah's were engrossed seeing the serial. The bride's parents' being influential people attempted to lodge a complaint with the station master, only to find him busy watching the serial. Even threats did not get him to budge from his seat before the TV set. Exasperated, they called up a union minister to seek justice, only to be given a terse reply that the minister himself was busy watching the serial and to call up later.
