How to infuse a vivid body language into a character is one of the biggest hurdles in the way of animation films. `Krishna Aur Kans` also faces the same problem but nearly perfect voice-overs and good visualisation save the day for the film.There is nothing extraordinary about a story that has been told countless number of times through books, serials and cartoons, so all that an informed viewer can demand of is an innovative treatment. Backed up by Reliance Animation, the film boasts of some established names that are associated with the film. For example, Juhi Chwala has given voice for Yashoda, Manoj Bajpayee does the same for Nand, Om Puri plays Kans and Mukesh Khanna dons the role of Kans` minister, however one voice that overshadows all these stars is of Prachi Save (Krishna). ...Read full review
We don`t really have a whole lot of films back home specially made for kids. Now that is not the only reason to watch this movie. Krishna aur Kans is undisputedly a visual delight (specially in 3D) with psychedelic, vibrant colours, and voiceovers that ain`t all that bad. While Om Puri`s Kans is convincing as the bad guy calling the shots, Juhi Chawla is perhaps the voice every tween would relate to. She in fact seems to be re-living the tedha-hain-phir-bhi-mera-hai Yashodan spirit all throughout. Sadly, it`s Manoj Vajpayee that seems a bit unheard. But then making up for all that are the special effects: Krishna fighting all the demons and evil spirits... Krishna playing the flute for the first time ever as autumn leaves fall all over... Krishna stealing all that makhan. Throw in some songs by Sonu Nigam, Sunidhi Chauhan, Shreya Ghoshal - though a wee bit extra for kids to handle - and the weekend shall be worth the wait for tweens out there. ...Read full review
There has been a steady rise in animated films based on Hindu mythology in recent times. It`s a healthy trend given our unabashed dependence on Hollywood when it comes to this genre. But having said that, our quality of animation is nowhere close to what it should be, or perhaps, could be Besides, when a movie is produced and marketed as childrens film, it brings to light some critical questions. Most prominent of these being the usual is it really a kids` flick? Films intended for younger audiences often end up treading on that discreet line between innocence and maturity. Krishna Aur Kans quite vividly falls under that category. And this verdict has little to do with an item number in the film! ...Read full review
When Arjun: The Warrior Prince released in May this year, this reviewer was convinced that Indias animation industry is headed in the right direction, where storytelling and technological advancement go hand in hand and no difference is made between adult and children audiences. Arjun grabbed and retained the attention of both. Three months later, sadly, the same cannot be said about Krishna Aur Kans that was shot around the same time as Arjun. ...Read full review
