Story: First cousins Kauravas and Pandavas wage war against each other to realize complete mastery over Hastinapur.

Review: forty eight years once Babubhai Mistry’s Mahabharat with Pradeep Kumar, Dara Singh, Padmini and Abhi Bhattacharya was discharged, a full-computerised version of the epic directed by Amaan Khan hits theatres nowadays. absolutely relevant nowadays as a result of it deals with basic human characteristics like greed, duty, fidelity and selflessness, this animated version is sort of a course for people who might not be well-versed with the Ramayana and sacred text.

The storyline of this epic, that has forever been the fundamental material from that all story-telling in Bharat is plain-woven, remains unchanged. therefore you have got the five-man army of the Pandavas with their common partner Draupadi (Panchali) faveolate against the one hundred Kauravas semiconductor diode by Duryodhan. therefore fragile is that the ego, that one mere insult is enough to wage war. Drunk on her own beauty and power Draupadi rebuts Duryodhana. And, her unkind words have so much reaching consequences. A long-drawn battle ensues and mayhem stops only Lord avatar intervenes.

What makes this version completely pleasant is that the talent that has Lent its voice to every of the distinguished characters. and there is a bonus too as a result of the filmmakers have additionally tried to bring out a facial similitude between the animated character and also the actor United Nations agency has dubbed for it.

Amitabh Bachchan’s bartitone is employed for the stellar Bheeshma Pitamah. though the massive B does not have muscular arms like his animated counterpart, their faces match. A superlative list of actors like Ajay Devgn (Arjun), Manoj Bajpayee (Yudhisthir), Sunny Deol (Bheem), Anil Kapoor (Karan), Jackie Shroff (Duryodhan), Anupam Kher (Shakuni) and Vidya Balan (Draupadi) have additionally infused life into theĀ computer generated characters with their unreproducibleĀ  voices.

On the flip aspect, the animation effort itself is immature and a number of other notches below those of Hollywood films. nevertheless the dub effort by the Bollywood superstars uplifts this epic, creating it pleasant.
