Krishna Aur Kans

Krishna Aur Kans is the story of Lord Krishna and the brutality of Kans and highlights Krishna’s birth and his victory over Kans. We’ve watched many animated films revolving around the Gods in the Hindu mythology but this one takes Hindi 3D animation to a new level.

Krishna Aur Kans wins over you from the word ‘go’. It is a perfect film for the young audience, who enjoys watching cartoons and animated series. The main highlight of the film is the apt voice-overs by actors like Om Puri, Manoj Bajpai, Anupam Kher and Juhi Chawla.

Director Vikram Veturi has not deviated from the original story and has been true to the description of each character. The film simply focuses on the birth and childhood sequences in Krishna’s life.

Some sequences have been captured extremely well, especially the climax fight scene, where Krishna and Balram defeat Kans and his men. The entire sequence has a typical Hindi cinema fight feel to it. Another highlight is the item number and introductory song of Putna. The song sequences are thoroughly enjoyable.

The animation is impressive along with 3D effects. For instance, the introductory scene featuring Kans, where he along with his army ravaging the village, is stunning. Another scene, where Vasudev carries Krishna to Yashoda, is beautifully conceived. The scene where the killing of Vasudev and Devaki’s sons is picturised is also worth noting. The only glitch in the film are the long song sequences, which break the flow of the narrative.

The background score is catchy and in tandem with every scene. Cinematography is apt. The conceptualisation of the scenes is beautifully captured, keeping in mind the religious values attached to the subject. Editing is good.

The voice-over of each character is extremely apt, such as Krishna by Prachi Savey while Kans by Om Puri is unmatched. Juhi Chawla, who is the voice of Yashoda, modulates her voice perfectly. Manoj Bajpai lends his voice to Nanda and fits the bill. Sachin Pilgaonkar and Supriya Pilgaonkar as Vasudev and Devaki are fabulous. Anupam Kher as Garg Muni doesn’t have much to offer but is good. A K Hangal as Ugrasen is wonderful. The other voice-overs are suitable.

Verdict: This is a good attempt in 3D animation and hopefully it will set a new benchmark for animation films in India, both in quality and revenue.
