Upcoming Colors’ show Chakravartin Samrat Ashoka (Contiloe Telefilms) has already grabbed the eyeballs with its teaser and trailers. After the recent launch of its promo, interest level has gone high. The enchanting tale of this Indian emperor has always fascinated us and we will love to see the narration of this warrior’s life story on screen. From the promos itself we think it will be an exciting watch. Here we present you with five reasons what we liked about the promo.
Pallavi Subhash and Siddharth Nigam
After portraying the character of Rukmini in Mahabharat, Pallavi Subhash is back in an epic drama. The actress has essayed different types of characters in her acting career and the way she pulled them has proved that she is a born actress. Accompanying her is the wonder kid Siddharth Nigam, who has already mesmerized audiences with his power-packed performances in Dhoom 3 and in the Life OK show Mahakumbh. Naturally the acting chops of these two talented actors impressed us.
With a National level gymnast like Siddharth present in the show, we can surely expect some high octane action sequences. From horse riding to sword fight to some stunning gymnastic stunts, the action scenes in the show will be an entertaining watch.
When it comes to period drama, we love heavy ornament and ethnic wear. Be it the beautiful dress and simple yet elegant make up of Pallavi or Siddharth’s tattooed arms and his rugged looks, the costumes and make up are complementing the characters in every way possible.
The tale of the great Indian Emperor has always fascinated us, so much so that even Shah Rukh Khan once portrayed the role of Ashoka in one his films. The story of an epic warrior, whose empire ranged from Hindu Kush to Bengal, preached Buddhism when he found peace and solace in the religion.
Cinematography and Editing
We have to admit that the camera work wonderfully captures all the action sequences and crisp editing makes the show even better. These two aspects are definitely big highlights of the show.
