Suryaputra Karn brings the story of the great warrior Karn and his life’s journey. It completed a successful run of one year. The show stars one of the finest actors of Indian television, Gautam Rode. Initially, many actors including Karanvir Bohra, Karan Grover and Karan Tacker were considered to play the lead role, but Gautam bagged the prestigious show and the lead role of Karna. The show presented Karn’s life, right from his birth and then his teenage years.
The viewers have seen how Karn became a mighty warrior, his equations with his brothers Pandavas, and his unconditional friendship with Duryodhan. Karn faced much social discrimination for being a low class charioteer’s son, but his determination did not get down. Karn still acquired all the knowledge and warrior skills, leading his way to become the King of Anga. His take on Pandavas and his love towards his mother Kunti were also seen. Many unseen phases of Karn’s life were presented in the show in a beautiful and well thought manner. The show has astounding special effects to add up to the great performances and powerful dialogues.
Star Plus also presented the great epic of Mahabharat before, but this show is focused on Karna and his perception about others. Kunti’s tapasya pleased Suryadev and he has blessed her with a baby having his powers. Karna was born by a boon to Kunti, and she abandoned the baby being helpless. She was scared to have a baby without wedlock. Kunti had much emotions for Karna, and she sacrificed her motherly love for the baby. Karna is that’s why titled Suryaputra Karn.
The show brings Karna in the prime role and presents his family background, his mother’s boon by Surya Dev, how he got raised by facing humiliation, fought back for his rights, and then landed into limelight. Karna’s bravery, honesty, compassion and all his virtues are shown in detail, along with his emotions, suppressed pain and his endurance. Karna had equal powers like Pandavas and even then he was an underrated hero in Indian mythology. The trials and tribulations faced by Karna is shown well.
Viewers got to see the real Karna and his effective presence in Mahabharat war. The show recently got the Mahabharat war track, where Karna will be killed in the war. Pandavas and Kauravas’ story post Kurukshetra war will entertain the viewers before the show’s end. Gautam will be appearing in the last episode, wherein viewers will see Karn in heaven. This mythology show on Sony became a big hit and a good TRP grosser. It fetched good reviews and high ratings since its start.
