    Watch this episode for Lord Krishna's lesson. An excellent lesson which today is need for every parent to understand.

    Coming to the episode, the episode continues its snail's pace which was picked from the previous episode. It is extremely slow, with nothing important or new to offer. Kunti takes almost 2 and a half valuable minutes just to decide whether to tell Pandu or not to tell him about his past which is totally unnecessary. The makers seem to mistake themselves for Bel Tarr by thinking they can provide depth by "prolonging" a dialogue-less scene. The episode is also filled with unnecessary music which only seems to be apt when Pandu leaves. The execution of emotional scenes seems very off, as you as audience are unable to feel the pain of a wife who has to let her husband go for war on the first night of their marriage.

    Direction: Lacks feelings.

    Script: Good but could be better.

    Acting: Shafaq Naaz needs to join an acting school and the casting directors need to reconsider her role. She is just unbearable. Saurabh Raj Jain as Krishna is good, though in the Hindu mythology Krishna is always depicted as having blue or dusky skin, beautiful blackish in some texts (not being Racial!). The casting team should have considered that! Arun is OK.

    Music: Unnecessary non-fitting music in every scene except the Krishna Flute theme and title theme.

    I am being generous giving this 6/10. A dull episode!
