Zee TV's 'Buddha' gets over a million eyes
41 mins ago from tellychakkar.com
Enticing the audiences with a refreshing concept, the new TV show Buddha on ZEE TV has brought the legend of Prince Siddhartha, straight from history books to life. And people are loving it! Saturated with the never-ending tales of saas-bahu sagas, the audience has embraced the show based on the life of the legend which inspired and led King Asoka on the road to peace.

Only three episodes old, the public has clearly greeted the show which has a TVT (Television viewership in thousands) of 1450 (round about 1.5 million). The Twitter & Facebook pages are filled with praises about the show, the costumes and how viewers look forward to watching the show on every Sunday. The fact that the show is in infant stage and has already got such a good feedback, shows the interest and curiosity factor among the viewers.

The show is an epic tale of the prince Siddhartha, who was born with a golden spoon, discovers the harsh realities of life and finds his way to enlightenment. Such was his glory that people across the world adopted his way of being. The show "Buddha" aims to retell the story of the one man who renounced a life of luxury searching for the answers to the sorrows of life.

"Buddha: Kings of King" Really appreciable efforts taken by ZEE TV on a high note. I am not a ZEE TV viewer but this time it has indulged me to watch. Seems healthy efforts has been taken by the entire time to make it so beautiful and worth watch. Missing it on Sunday means a waste of complete week. It gives you much energy and realistic approach towards life. Big thing is without proper promotions and publicity this is running successfully.

Unfortunately they are making up way too many things. Buddha did have a younger brother and sister through Pajapati, I don't know what happened to them.

Today he was shown going to a prostitutes house!!! I stopped watching. Siddhartha had 3 palaces, one for each season and he did not have to visit any prostitute -- he had several women picked only for him in his palace.

It is watching these women in the palace one night half naked and SNORING that turns him off from sexual joys and helps him make up his mind to become a hermit.

Snoring women can do that to you.

I consider this a Hindu serial on Buddha completely biased towards Hinduism and would not recommend it to real Buddhists.

It has way too many inaccuracies and false stories on his life -- a Buddhist who is raised on Precepts would throw up after watching too many lies.
