ramMahayoddha Rama is a complete entertainer for children. The film tells the epic tale of Lord Rama but, uniquely, it is narrated from Raavan’s point of view. It impresses and has a fun element as far as the dialogue (Varun Grover and Rahul Patel) goes.

Winning your heart from the very beginning, this Hindi animated film is perfect for the young audience who enjoys comic books, cartoons and animated series. However, the film has some obvious flaws, which brings it down a notch or two. For instance, the character sketches are too loud, making them maddening at times. Also, the visuals, special effects and the animation have a comic book feel which is particularly disappointing considering the great voiceover cast.

The story: Demon king’s Raavan’s (Gulshan Grover) singular obsession is to destroy the avatar of Lord Vishnu, who is destined to be his doom. Through Ram’s childhood and early adulthood, Raavan tries many tricks to kill him but all in vain.

Director Raizada Rohit Jaising Vaid has given the original story a twist with a captivating narrative, keeping in mind the target audience. Some of the sequences have been captured extremely well, especially the scenes where Raavan has conversations with his other heads, a different personality and a different voiceover for each head. Another highlight is the music and songs.

The background score is catchy and in tandem with every scene. Cinematography is apt. The conceptualisation of scenes is beautifully captured. Editing is good.

Gulshan Grover’s voice is apt for the part of Raavan and he modulates his voice exceptionally well. Kunal Kapoor voices Lord Ram and he has done a fantastic job. Jimmy Shiergill as Laxman’s vocal is top notch. Mouni Roy beautifully voices Sita. The others, from the late Sadashiv Amrapurkar to Kiku Sharda, Ameen Sayani, Raza Murad, Suchitra Pillai, Mukesh Rishi, Vikram Gokhale and Lillete Dubey do a fabulous job with their respective parts.

Verdict: Worth a dekho!
