Know what is the story of the series
The series begins with war, Akbar, who mercilessly orders the killing of other’s children, yearns for his own children. During this war, a blood-soaked Akbar meets a Sufi saint, Sheikh Salim Chishti (Dharmendra), who blesses him and says that he will have 3 children, but someone of his own will warn his rule. During this, he advises that ‘whenever the water of the river turns red, the blood of the Mughalia Sultanate will flow’. In this series, this scene of just a few minutes of Dharmendra was the best moment of the entire series.

Like the name of the series, this series is based on the conflict between Akbar’s family and his children. Salim, Murad and Daniyal Akbar have 3 sons. These 3 boys of his are completely different from their father. Daniyal is completely different from his brothers. He keeps himself away from the battle because Daniyal has dedicated himself to Allah. The son whom the father had expected after the vows is Salim, who finds it difficult to spend his life between jam and beauty. So Murad likes violence. It is his habit to look down on his brothers and give importance to himself.

Akbar has the responsibility of choosing his successor from among his sons. Once wants to choose such a ruler as his successor who follows in his footsteps and gives importance to all people and all religions. The one who gives justice and does not make any kind of compromise. This is the reason why Akbar takes the decision that the heir of the Mughalia Sultanate will be chosen from among his sons on the basis of ability and not on the basis of age.
Let me tell you, so far many good things have been written about Akbar in many books. But Akbar was not a saint. In this series, many revelations have been made about this life of Akbar. But will Shaikh Salim Chishti’s warning of ‘Aapko khatra unse zinse ghatron ki expected sabest kam ho’ be true or not and how these things are connected with the love story of Anarkali-Salim, watch Zee5’s web series Taj Divided Must see By Blood.
Actor’s Acting and Directing
In this series, we get to see amazing acting of some artists. Naseeruddin Shah as Akbar, Sandhya Mridul as Jodha Bai, Zarina Wahab as Salima Sultan Begum and Rahul Bose as Mirza Hakeem deliver their stellar performances as always and try to make the series entertaining and interesting. . In the series, Aashim Gulati as Salim and Taha Shah as Murad are trying to do justice to their roles in front of these talented actors but have not been able to succeed completely. Aditi Rao is not able to impress anything special in the role of Anarkali. These three actors are mostly seen imitating the characters of famous Bollywood films. The imagination of the director is very good but still there is a lot missing in this series.
Know why to see and why not to see
This series is right for those who like continuum drama. If you do not have any other plan on the weekend, then you can definitely watch this series. This series is far from the truth. In the name of Creative Liberty, imagination has been used in such a way that it seems like a fantasy story. A series could have been a good and interesting historical series but it has not happened.
