Mahabharat presents the story of the throne of Hastinapur, the kingdom ruled by the Kuru clan where Kauravas and the Pandavas brothers compete for rulership. Both Duryodhan and Yudhisthir claim to be first in line to inherit the throne.
When Bhishma asked for Gandhari's hand in marriage for his blind nephew Dhritarashtra, her brother Shakuni got furious. But he later agreed when Bhishma persuaded them that Dhritrashtra would be the future king of Hastinapur. During the Coronation Ceremony; Dhritrashtra’s younger brother Pandu was made the king with the high interfluence of Vidura(Dhritrashtra’s another younger brother).
Shakuni felt that he was cheated and so he swore to himself that he would destroy the Kuru race. He sowed the seeds of the climactic battle during the adolescence of the Kauravas (Sons of Dhritarashtra) and the Pandavas (Sons of Pandu) by poisoning the mind of Duryodhan; the eldest Kaurav against the Pandavas.
This results in the Kurukshetra War where Shri Krishna imparts Bhagwad Gita to his Pandav cousin Arjuna. The battle saw the deaths of Bhishma Pitamah; Karna among many. All the sons of Dhritarashtra and Gandhari died in the war.
The title song was sung and the verses rendered by veteran Bollywood singer Mahendra Kapoor. The title song was followed by a narration by Indian voice artist Harish Bhimani of a personification of time detailing the circumstances and highlighting the spiritual significance of the content of the episode.
