Finally, India has produced an animated movie it can boast of. Ramayana: The Epic is indeed a revelation. Indian animation has never been on par with Hollywood animated flicks. Barring a few films, the Indian animation stable has failed to create anything awe-inspiring. However, that seems to change now thanks to Ketan Mehta’s Ramayana: The Epic.

What Is it About?

By now everyone knows the story of the Ramayana. Several films have been made in the past, on the Ramayana, including our very own Bollywood version, Raavan. So, there isn’t much a director can do with the limited scope. However, debutante director Chetan Desai manages to tell the story in a different style, using the Laxman-Hanuman narration angle.

The story begins with a voiceover describing the tale of Ayodha and King Dashrath. Due to certain circumstances, Dashrath’s beloved son Ram has to leave for vanvas (forced exile). During their stay in the forest, Ram’s wife gets kidnapped by the mighty and powerful king of Lanka, Raavan. The later part of the story deals with how Ram overcomes the obstacles and tries to win back his love from the clutches of the vile Raavan.


Full marks to the animators of Maya Digital Media, for adding life to each and every frame. The 3D animation is first rate and the realistic water-scenes leave you wanting for more. Even the rendered output of the climax (Ram slays Raavan) is breathtaking.
The voice-overs by Manoj Bajpai (Bhagwan Ram), Sita (Juhi Chawla) and Ashutosh Rana (Raavan) are apt.


The screenplay could have been tighter. Moreover, the story becomes a bit boring in the second half until the battle sequences act as a saving grace. The animators have also goofed up in the crowd sequences as the characters appear crude.

Final Verdict

India still has a long way to go till it can exceed the benchmark set by spectacular movies like Shrek, Wall E and Up. However, this is a humble yet an excellent start in that direction. You might have heard the story a number of times before but Ramayana: The Epic is indeed a watchable and entertaining fare. It’s worth a watch for its innovative animation and excellent storytelling.

    Hope it might be better production than the previous animation of Ramayana The Legend Of Prince Rama.
