Mahabharat Aur Barbareek is a 2013 Indian Hindi language real film starring Amit Rao Jeetendra as Barbareek, Bheem's grandson through Ghatotkacha. It is the last movie that Dharmesh Tiwari acted in. The movie was directed by Dharmesh Tiwari. It is based on the story of Barbareek, who had enough power to turn the tide of the battle any way he wanted. Several of the original actors who acted in BR Chopra's Mahabharat, made in 1988, acted in this movie too.[1][2][3][4]


The story starts with the Pandavas in exile with Bheema and Hidimbi's Grandson Barbareeka often called as Lord Shyam or Shyam Baba. The story based around Mahabharat, revolves around Barbareeka (later named Shyam Baba by Lord Krishna), who had a powerful astra, known as the 'Teen Baan' (three infallible arrows). This astra would've potentially overpowered any side that Barbareeka would choose to confront. The story revolves around the sacrifice Barbareeka eventually has to make for the greater good.
