Amol Kolhe and Prajakta Gaikwad’s portrayal of Chhatrapati Sambhaji and Maharani Yesubai was convincing enough for the audiences. Though the two did justice to their legendary characters, the performances of the supporting actors was also path-breaking, to say the least. Kaviraj, Soyrabai carved their place in the audience’s heart forever. The negative characters like Anaji Pant, Aurangzeb, Ganhoji Rao, Muqarab Khan too stayed on for a totally different reason altogether.

2. Inspirational story of Sambhaji Maharaj

Swarajyarakshak Sambhaji is a historical drama about the Maratha warrior king, Sambhaji Maharaj who took over the throne after his father Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj’s death. The brave king walked on Shivaji Maharaj’s footsteps and pursued the long lost dream of Swarajya- complete freedom. His story is full of inspiration and needs to be watched and remembered by one and all.

3. Memorable events in history

As the show was based on historical evidences and facts, it kept track of the important events that took place in the history of the Maratha empire. Right from the coronation of Sambhaji, birth of Shahu Raje, Sambhaji fight with the Mughals and ultimately his capture, have been picturized with utmost precision. This is another reason why the show needs to be rewatched.

4. Understanding the Maratha warfare

Sambhaji Maharaj imitated the strategies and guerilla warfare propagated by his father Shivaji Maharaj. He even managed to win some battles against powerful enemies using these techniques. It is important for everyone to understand what these strategies were, some of which are quite significant from a political perspective.

5. The painful death

Oh, and who can forget the sad ending of the show and the painful death of Sambhaji Maharaj.

However, the brave Maratha king refused to surrender and bore with the torture until his very last breath. The slow death that Sambhaji Maharaj had to face literally sends chills down the spine.
