I have to make sometime and watch 2009 Ramayan...
I'm interested and curious to see how Gurmeet did justice to his role(Ram)!
Yeah, it's a common misconception with people that since Ram was calm, he was dull, but that's not true. Both in Valmiki Ramayana and Ramcharitmanas, Lord Rama's character is a very active one! He was a fierce warrior who made his enemies tremble with fear, and at the same time he was calm and peaceful when need be.
Lord Ram is called Maryada Purushotham NOT because he was always calm, but because he showed the proper emotion in every moment of his life. When people sinned, he got very angry, when devotees came to him for shelter, he was merciful, and with Sita Ma he was romantic
. With his brothers he was very loving and protective, Lord Ram expressed ALL the emotions of a human life so to show him only calm is a big blunder.

Gurmeet was just wonderful as Lord Ram. I'm not saying this as a fan, but as an unbiased viewer of all mythological shows. In fact, I became a fan of his after Ramayan only. He defined Lord Ram for me, and he enacted the role so well that sometimes, I felt as if I was seeing Lord Ram himself onscreen.
