Storyline

Bhagwan Shri Bajrangbali was born in a Vanar family based in Kishigandha. His father was Pawan (God of Wind), and his mother Anjani. He had two brothers, Sugreev and Vali (aka Bali), and a nephew, Angadh, Vali's son. As a child Bajrangbali has always regarded the skies and universe as his playground and could leap and fly around at will, even swallowing the sun on one occasion. With powers to fly, enlarge his body, he makes himself virtually invulnerable. He obtains his training from Surya Dev, and as a fee for this training, he disciplines Shani Dev with the help of the now vanquished Mangal Dev. When Vali abducts Sugreev's wife and holds her captive, Anjani summons Bajrangbali, who with the help of now exiled Bhagwan Shri Ram, manages to kill Bali, ensures that Sugreev is reinstated as the King of Kishigandha, and then the entire Vanar and Vrush (bear) armies go to assist Ramji, whose wife, Devi Maa Sita, has been abducted by Shivbakht Ravan, and is being held captive in far off ...

Excellent rendering of the Ramayan story through the eyes of Hanuman
2 February 2006 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

The movie starts out with Hanuman having received his tuition of the Sun God and Hanuman asking the Sun God for a return-favour so as to pay him back for the tuition he received. The Sun God being estranged with his own son, Shani (Saturn), asks Hanuman to bring him out of the continuous anger and into 'the light'. This is followed by some traditional knocking down of doors etc which leads to a fight and finally with the son coming to his senses due to Hanuman 'knocking' some sense into him.

After this, Hanuman is sent back to earth so as to visit his mother, Anjani and he's duty-bound by his mother to go help Sugriv (the monkey-king) whose wive has been stolen by his bigger brother Bali (with a little help from Raven).

On his way to find help defeating Bali, he's instilled with the love of Ram like he was in his youth (when he was a animal-friend of Ram) by the whole of the Devic folks living in the Himalayas's with Shiva and Parvati. The wonderful song: Bhajle Ram inspires Hanuman to seek out Ram again and soon he encounters them in.

After deceiving them first in his guise as a rishi he gages their insight in the dharmic laws and afterwards prostrates himself to the endless glory of Ram. The story takes a faster pace from this moment on, where the role of Bajrangbali is reduced to that of Ram's messenger and fiercest fighter and Ram takes the main-spotlights away from Bajrangbali. It's only at the specific parts after the Lanka-kand, that Bajrangbali, gets his own 'mischievous' nature back and performs his 'lila'.

Things missed in this 180 minute marvel are the stories about the patal-encounters which are recounted in yet another movie (title: Hanuman Vijay) where his relations with Makri, Makar-Dhwaj and all the others are given more depth.

All in all a wonderful tribute to Hanuman and a wonderful starter for anyone interested in Hindu mythology and specifically the 'lila' of Hanuman.
