ETV Marathi unfolds the epic saga of Bajirao Mastani, a love story of the Peshwa warrior whose velour on the field was equally matched by highly emotional affinity towards Mastani, his companion in the military campaigns.
Plotted around a royal Maharashtraian Peshwa family, the tale features Baji Rao, the son of Peshwa Balaji Vishwanath who is elevated to the stature upon the death of his father only because of his extraordinary abilities. Baji Rao went on to make the Maratha army a supreme force in the sub-continent fighting over 41 battles, reputed to have never lost one.
In the course he rescues the honour of the king of Bundelkhand who as a token of gratitude marries off his daughter Mastani (born to Persian Moslem women) to Bajirao as his second wife. She was a skilled horse-rider, and accompanied Baji Rao on his military campaigns.
The gripping flow of emotions takes swift turns and twists from here on where Bajirao becomes extremely attached to Mastani at the cost of his first wife. This miffs the family who attempt to separate Mastani from Bajirao at every given opportunity.
Royal wars, sparks of love, affection in the relations, pinch of sorrow amid heavy emotions, all have been perfectly captured in Bajirao Mastani to excite and sustain the interests of the viewers. Highly conceived aesthetics with uncompromising standards have been consistently maintained. Bajirao Mastani is expected to appeal through the screenplay and mercurial flow of dialogues that can leave the viewers in rapt concentration.
Lavish and highly creative art stands will be another highlight for this serial where the grandiose will be felt in sets, costumes and stunning locales.
This saga is set to woo the Marathi audiences across the world, stirring their emotional quotient. The serial is directed by Vijay Rane and produced by Nitin Chandrakant Desai starring Angad Mhaskar, Prachiti Mhatre, Smita Shewale, Rahul Solapurkar, Jyothi Chandekar.
