Ramayana (watch all episodes,cast, award and other information ) is an Indian television series based on ancient Indian Sanskrit epic of the same name. The show was originally aired between 1987 and 1988 on DD National. It was created, written, and directed by Ramanand Sagar. The show is primarily based on Valmiki’s ‘Ramayana’ and Tulsidas’ ‘Ramcharitmanas’.
The series had a viewership of 82 per cent, a record high for any Indian television series. The series was re-aired during the 2020 Coronavirus lockdown and broke several viewership records globally which includes setting the record for one of the most watched TV shows ever in the world, with 77 million viewers on 16 April 2020.
An adaptation of the ancient epic, in which the exiled Prince Rama and his brother Laxman set out to save Rama’s wife, Sita, who has been kidnapped by the demon king of Lanka Ravana.
The noble prince Rama (an incarnation of Lord Vishnu) is exiled from Ayodhya on his stepmother’s whim, and his loyal brother Lakshmana and beautiful wife, Sita, follow him into the forest despite the many dangers it holds.
But when Sita is kidnapped by Ravana, king of the rakshasas, Rama must go deep into himself to find the physical and emotional resources he needs to rescue her.
An idealized heroic tale about the struggle between good and evil, the Ramayana is also an intensely personal story of family relationships, love and loss, duty and honour, of harem intrigue, petty jealousies and destructive ambitions-all this played out in a universe populated by larger-than-life humans, gods and celestial beings, wondrous animals and terrifying demons.
