Shemaroo Entertainment releases ‘Peter Brook’s The Mahabharata’ in Hindi on DVDs. It was actually a 9hr- stage play termed as performing art which got which got reduced to 6hrs for DVD release. Brook and award-winning writer Jean-Claude Carriere worked for eight years to develop this epic concerning two sides of a royal family, the Pandavas and the Kauravas, whose struggle leads to a fascinating voyage of emotions, contradictions, and dreams, filled with subplots which are alternately comic and tragic but always gloriously entertaining. A seemingly simple tale of two set of semi-divine brothers vying for the throne spirals out to include wider theme of fate, free will, and the problem of behaving dishonorably to preserve the greater good.
