Chandrakanta, the name brings nostalgia, since most of us watched it when we were small and growing old. It was a classic fantasy serial partly based on Devaki Nandan Khatri’s novel of the same name, and was telecasted on Doordarshan between 1994 and 1996.
The novel was published as early as 1888 and is considered one of the first work of prose in modern Hindi Language. Its popularity was of such a grand scale that since then, the show had many reruns. Now, why we again are talking about this serial. That’s because it’s coming back. And same serial on two different networks, almost simultaneously. One of the being the Star TV’s network Life OK and other being Viacom 18’s Colors TV.

The story is a romantic fantasy of two lovers who belongs to different and rival kingdoms: the princess Chandrakanta of Vijaygarh and the prince Virendra Singh of Naugarh. Krur Singh, who is a member of Vijaygarh’s king court dreams of taking over the throne by marrying princess Chandrakanta.
