It is the story of Krishna, the destiny's child, born as the nemesis of brutal king Kans who had tormented the kingdom with his ruthless dominance. Growing up as a naughty prankster, Krishna from a very early age displays his valiant powers over the deadly demons send by Kans, whose frustrations grow as every death defying duel hails Krishna emerging as a real hero among his folks. Years of futile efforts to eliminate his nemesis at last compels Kans to invite Krishna for a decisive duel in the coliseum as the massive crowd breathlessly witnesses the final faceoff between good and evil. As an epic magnum opus, "Krishna aur Kans" promises a complete entertainment package. The pace and speed of the film aptly support the emergence of Krishna, the greatest legendary heritage character of India, that manages to keep the graph of excitement soaring till the end. Adding another magic touch to the package is the heartwarming music of the film. Krishna aur Kans as an animated feature film ... Written by Dhrubo Banerjee

Well, that dropped

The last time I checked out this movie it had like a 7.7 on this website! I feel kind of bad seeing as how I probably only loved it because so many other people did at the time. Yeah, I'm kind of a conformist and want to look at what's the highest rated. With all being said, I believe now that my completely unbiased opinion of this film is that it is good, just not great. It is hard for me to truly judge it, as I am not that familiar with Hindu mythology. I've seen other movies based on it, but as it's so massive it doesn't focus on the same story.

I really was impressed by the animation this movie. I guess India hasn't made the transition from 2D to CGI unlike most Western countries. In fact, I think Eastern countries in general haven't done that. This movie tells the story of how Vishnu was born as a human and fought the evil Prince Rans while he was still a mere child. Anyway, I had no idea there was a demon in Hinduism that had poisonous milk in her breasts. Yeah, pretty creepy, but it's an original concept at least. Its main fault is that it is too long but Indian films usually are. The movements were good and it's always nice to learn about a culture that I am unfamiliar with. ***
