Prince of Light - The Legend of Ramayana

on

Story: Everyone knows the story, or ought to - you aren't watching this to be surprised by plot twists! If you don't know the story, read Shri Ramcharitmanas or Valmiki's Ramayana; it's worth your time. My only complaint is that they skim a little too casually over points of potential controversy in various tellings (especially leaving out material from Valmiki). Animation: This was commissioned as a joint Indian-Japanese project with a substantial budget, so naturally the technical quality is good (for the era). It does suffer from age. Sound: The songs are good, but "Ram Doot Hanuman"... See full review
