1. Mayabazar (1957)
IMDb Review: Mayabazar from 1957, has brought forward the story of a great time of our history; The Mahabharata. This movie in that time marked an exceptional work and depicted the story of Balaram’s daughter, Sasi Rekha by Bhima’s son Gatothgaja, and her wedding to Abhimanyu, son of Arjuna.
Critic Review: The movie has some great actors from that time, who apprehended the true spirit of old times. They brought life in characters and the story which would otherwise remain untold for all of us. In the modern era with a lot of Mahabharat and drama shows; they miss to involve those stories and magic of that time. For mythology lovers, this movie is a perfect watch.
Our Rating: 4.7
