The series is divided into three acts:

  • The early life of Vishnugupta in the kingdom of Magadha and the circumstances leading to his self-imposed exile, particularly the persecution (and subsequent death) of his father at the hands of Dhanananda, King of Magadha.
  • The invasion of northwestern India by Alexander, his death, the rebellion led by native Indian kingdoms under the leadership of Chandragupta Maurya against Alexander's successors in India, and the subsequent defeat of the Greek invaders.
  • The attack on and overthrow of the Nanda rule in Magadha and the crowning of Chandragupta as the King of Magadha.

Within this framework, Dwivedi portrays the politics that governed relations between kings and officials of that time. He covers the workings of the early Indian republics and the way of life of ordinary Indians.

While critically acclaimed, Chanakya has been the subject of political controversy. It has been televised in many countries around the world and has won five Uptron Awards. The series was widely praised for its authenticity, casting and grandeur.
