The Great War is over. Kurukshetra lies barren, sans its great warriors and king, sans justice. The vicious battle saw the end of the unforgettable ‘heroes’ and ‘villains’ of the Mahabharata. The thin line between just and unjust, fair and unfair, deceit and loyalty, betrayal and duty, has never been questioned. The answers to these unasked questions lie buried in the ruins of history. Dharmakshetra resurfaces these buried questions and allows the legendary characters of this tale an opportunity to tell their side of the story for the very first time. In a post-apocalyptic trial, held in Maharaj Chitragupta’s court, the seeming villains ‘Kauravas’ are allowed to accuse the so called heroes ‘Pandavas’ and vice versa, in an attempt to justify their actions. Upon hearing all the arguments made by the prosecution and the defense, Chitragupta delivers his final verdict. As with the original Mahabharata, Dharmakshetra has many intriguing facets for us. On a primary level, Dharamkshetra attempts to ask some key questions about the nature of humanity, while at the same time, it puts together the forgotten pieces of the story we thought we knew.
