Over the years, people have grown to love web series and films that are based on history and period drama. Whether it’s 'Jodhaa Akbar' or 'Mughal-E-Azam', there’s something about period dramas that the audience love. One such series which broke the internet recently is ‘Taj: Divided by Blood’ which premiered on ZEE5 on 3rd March. Set during the era when King Akbar ruled almost the entire Indian subcontinent, the show mainly focuses on his relationship with his three sons - Salim (Aashim Gulati), Murad (Taaha Shah Badussha) and Daniyal (Shubham Kumar Mehra), who are in the race to be the heir apparent of the flourishing Mughal empire. Their differences and individual personalities fuel the story with enough ammo to build a strong and engaging narrative.

Season 1 went on to become the most viewed and successful series on ZEE5 and the success of S1 drove the release of S2 – 'Taj: Reign of Revenge' soon after. From power-packed dialogues and stellar acting to elaborate costumes and an edge-of-the-seat experience, 'Taj: Reign of Revenge' is a worthy successor to S1 and a must-watch series. 

Here are 5 reasons why you must binge-worth 'Taj: Reign of Revenge' if you haven’t already. 

Dharmendra is a delight to watch

The seasoned actor as Shaikh Salim Chishti plays a small but integral part in the second season, lending Akbar his intelligence and foresight on crucial issues affecting the empire. His make-up and costumes completely transform him into a character and his strong and iconic voice leaves the desired impact of his words. 

Naseeruddin Shah continues to hold the show together with his stellar act

He portrays the worries of an ailing father and an ageing emperor with subtlety and an understated nuance. The way he treads delicately to balance both aspects of his character is something only an actor of his caliber can pull off. He is perhaps the best choice for the job.

Aashim Gulati is impressive as Salim, the wronged heir apparent

While Akbar tries to make amends with his son, Prince Salim has now become a rebel with the sole motive to avenge Anarkali’s (Aditi Rao Hydari) fate. Salim portrays his character with utmost sincerity and passion, proving his caliber as a fine actor. 

This season is high on drama, politics, and conspiracies

It brings to light the true faces of the characters that inhabit this exquisitely created world of the Mughal sultanate. There are unexpected plot twists and turns, and if you've already watched the first season, you’d genuinely be hooked to see how the remaining episodes unfold more of the hidden motives and intentions of every character.

This series is not just about the main characters but also about the many secondary characters

The most interesting part about the second season remains how the various courtiers and advisers to the king try to control the narrative and conspire to place their favorite contender on the throne as the successor to Akbar. The queens residing in their Harem are also not far behind in their endeavors to influence and dictate the men around them.
