The concept of Kaun Banegi Shikharwati is interesting, and it is good to watch a series in which not the sons but the daughters are competing to be the next king. The series has been mounted on a huge scale; the production value is really good. The performance by the actors is the highlight of the series. Naseeruddin Shah as Raja Mrityunjay has performed really well. Lara, Soha, Kritika, and Anya, all four actresses are perfect in their respective roles. One actor who deserves a special mention is
Raghubir Yadav; he is fantastic as Mishraji.
In some episodes the series is a bit stretched and also there are a few clichés in it that we have been watching in Indian films and series.
Kaun Banegi Shikharwati is a decent series with some really good performances. So, you should watch it at least once!
