Vicky shared the video on Instagram with the caption: “Epic! Can’t think of any other words to describe #Taj. Saw it before and am watching it again…and you should too!!! Hats off to @Zee5 for making a masterpiece.” He said that he has heard about the show from many people around him and thought of watching it in his spare time as he has just finished shooting for the film. He said that the show “blows my mind” and congratulated the makers and technicians for making a “world-class” show.
Vicky said that seeing Dharmendra back on screen was his favorite part of the show. “It was lovely, he’s just a legend, he’s evergreen,” he said of the scene in which Dharmendra made a cameo as Sheikh Salim Chishti. Also describing Naseeruddin Shah as a legend, he said, “Woh acting mein chalta phirta masterclass hain (He is a walking masterclass in acting).”
Praising Aditi Rao Hydari who plays Anarkali, Vicky said, “She is looking beautiful and the casting is just a masterstroke.” He added, “Actually, the three fighting brothers, Shubham, Taha and Aashim are absolute stars. Well done.” The actor said that he is going to watch the second episode about the Battle of Kabul again and added that he was looking forward to the second season.
Hindustan Times review of the film read: “Taj-Divided By Blood, directed by Ronald Scalpello, attempts to tackle a lot of history and present it in a fresh way, but the overall effort feels a bit short and underwhelming. If This Games While it aimed to be a homegrown version of Off Thrones, it is quite subdued in both scale and execution.
