Chhatrasal web series review


Our school textbook has a limited syllabus, not all the heroes and heroines have been mentioned in our textbooks. Therefore, most of the people in the society remained unaware of their bravery, only a few historians get a chance to read and know about these heroes and heroines. Even in cinema, we can see that most of the time the story of known warriors is being shown on the screen about which the public knows a little bit beforehand. But bringing the story of an Unsung Warrior on the screen of cinema is quite a big financial risk for the creators. For this reason, most of the producers and creators stay on the safe side by producing films related to the current trends – comedy, crime, action.


But, the director Anadi Chauturvedi took the risk and started his cinematic career with a story based on King Chhatrasal. I think the idea is very great and all other directors also should bring the story of other Unsung Warrior.


Now coming to the acting part. All of the Chhatrasal web series cast acted well in the entire series. Ashutosh Rana played the role of Alamgir Aurangzeb and he fits perfectly in the character of Aurangazeb that formed in front of our eyes from the painting. From the series, it seems that Ashutosh has to put some weight on the character of Aurangzeb. As a heavy body in middle-aged looks quite real under the royal dresses. 


Chhatrasal web series cast Jitin Gulati played the role of King Chhatrasal. Jitin enters the series from the fourth episode and from then up to the twentieth episode his acting does not disappoint us. Jitin has played the role of King Chhatrasal from his youth to old age in an effortless way which looks like he is made for this character. From a small role in ‘Ms. Dhoni: The Untold Story’ to the main Chhatrasal web series cast and also he has to portray the King Chhatrasal, a completely different role is the turning point of his career.


Neena Gupta is shown as the narrator of the Chhatrasal in the series. She walks in different royal saris and tells the story from beginning to the end to the audience. Rudra Soni played the role of kid Chhatrasal and deserves a compliment. Rudra has now become proficient at portraying mythological characters in many movies and series. 



  • Chhatrasal web series rating: 7.2/10 (IMDb)

  • The VFX of Chhatrasal can be seen that most of the scenes have happened in front of the green screen and there is clear animation. But it will be too much if we expect to see Game of Thrones level VFX, with this limited budget the choice of background and everything is perfect.

  • The production design is simple in the Chhatrasal web series. The simple silver color that is used in the props like the shield and sword indicates that the budget is tight for the show.


  • The show shows us the extra Heroism of King Chhatrasal. He got rid of the kingdom at the hands of the Mughal Sultanate was brave. But as a kid, some scenes show King Chhatrasal’s extra Heroism. One is when Kid Chhatrasal swims faster than the Crocodiles in the water and catches the bell hanging 8 feet above without any support like Nagraj. Then another scene when which shows the extra heroism of Chhatrasal’s parents when they cover the gap of 100 feet between two hills like a farm. The animation and all those editings are quite lacking in these scenes other than that everything is perfect.

  • When is Chhatrasal season 2 coming out? Or is there any season 2 of Chhatrasal?

            So there is no official announcement of releasing season 2 of Chhatrasal. The Chhatrasal web series season 1 is just released on 29 July 2021 on MX Player.


  • The editing and animation of the show may not be perfect but the story that has been shown here, I think every one of us should watch it. The story is very interesting and informative.
