Arjun The Warrior Prince Movie Review

Ratings:3/5 Reviewer:Rajeev Masand Site:CNN IBN (IBNLive)

The film’s director builds up the narrative by showing what goes into the making of a committed warrior.The heroic exploits and inner struggles of Arjun are woven into the film’s narrative so convincingly that you tend to forget this is animation. However the film is not without its weaknesses – some characters, like that of the scheming Shakuni mama, are too caricaturish and could have done with a more subtle touch, while the Pandavas’ exile portion feels overly stretched and dull. For the most part, the movie works when it concentrates on its protagonist and his evil cousin Duryodhan.I’m going to with three out of five for Arjun: The Warrior Prince. Like its hero, the film too is a valiant effort, and an interesting interpretation of a much-loved mythological story. Worth a watch.

Told with elegance, ARJUN THE WARRIOR PRINCE catches your attention for varied reasons: The animation, which is vivacious and vibrant, the energetic combat scenes, but most importantly, it’s narrated in the most simplistic manner. For those who’re well aware, and even those who aren’t, it’s a faithful retelling of one of our favorite stories. Even the speech is not chaste Sanskrit and strikes a chord with the viewer.The animation is not superlative, but much superior to most we’ve witnessed thus far. If you’ve braved the animation films made in India in the past, this one will come as a pleasant and welcome change. On the whole, ARJUN THE WARRIOR PRINCE needs to be watched for its animation, for its storytelling and most importantly, it makes an earnest effort to relive the mythology.

If you’ve watched animated films like ‘Bal Krishna’, ‘Ghatothkach’, ‘Hanuman Returns’, this one’s a far ‘sketch’, on a different canvas altogether. Directed (by Arnab Chaudhari) using 2G animation, the look is classic and superior by usual standards in Indian animation. Even though it’s laced with dialogues that are heavy-weight (like adharm, kartavya, kuruvansh ka sarvanash), the narration of the multi-layered complex saga, laden with countless characters, is easy to comprehend. This journey of a superhero is more for adults than kids on their summer holiday.Of all the amateurish animation films we’ve seen, this one’s a ‘God-sent’.

Arjun: The Warrior Prince, it isn’t the first film to be made about the Mahabharata. It won’t be the last, either. It also isn’t India’s first animated film, but it is certainly one of Bollywood’s better (maybe even best) animated ventures.It would’ve been easy to let this plot go stale, for the simple reason that it has been explored so much, but hats off to the director for bringing something new to the platter.Being an animated film, Arjun is sure to find a connect with kids. It is also a great outing for someone who wishes to walk down nostalgia lane with their favourite tales of the good old days.

The story will have an instant connect with the older audience. Chaudhuri cleverly uses action sequences to keep one gripped. He takes a mythological story and presents it as an all out action flick, which is educational and enjoyable for kids and adults alike. Yudhveer Bakoliya lends his voice to Arjun, while Vijay Kashyap’s Shakuni Mama is less scheming and adds comic relief.Let your kids absorb the story, while you can marvel at this step forward for the Indian animation film industry. It’s a great way to have fun while you learn.

Kids will enjoy the action and adults will like the story they read as children being narrated again.All animation lovers are aware what goes into the making of each animation film, hence the respect increases manifold when the outcome is more than a one-time watch. Most of all, this film will be a eye-opener in more than one way for the audiences. First, this is not meant only for kids, adults too must watch this 70 mm extravaganza; and plain animation aside, this is a action-animation, which may soon be a new genre. Hail Animation! Secondly, there’s a lot one can learn, there are philosophical lessons that one will find in many parts during the course of the film, if only you notice them.

Indian animation has come of age with Arnab Choudhury’s ARJUN THE WARRIOR PRINCE. This one is epic in all aspects. It catapults creativity to an all-time high.This film has been in the making since 2008 by UTV Toons. Somewhere down the line Walt Disney joined in to make it one of India’s epic animated films thus far. If your Sunday mornings were spent in front of the television set two decades ago, this one is definitely for you.
