Not only an entertainer for your children, Krishna Aur Kans will keep you glued to your seat as you will definitely recall the bygone days of your childhood!
14 September 2012 | by (India) – See all my reviews

It will not be true to say that I was not excited about the prospect of watching a 3D animated movie with a tub of popcorn in my hand. Like any other tween, I was literally jumping with excitement as I sat to watch the movie. And honestly, the movie lived up to my expectation.

Krishna Aur Kans will definitely make you relive your childhood memories. Directed by Vikram Veturi, this two hours animated movie seems like a remake of Sri Krishna by Ramanand Sagar.

Krishna Aur Kans starts with the holy city of Mathura being ravaged and destroyed by King Kans. His ruthless ways, cruelty, wickedness, and the fact the he thinks he is superior to the others helps him to destroy the beautiful and holy city and transform it into a miserable and sad place. A divine voice warns him that he will be challenged, defeated and killed by his sister Devaki and his brother-in-law's (Vasudev) eighth son. Krishna is born as the eighth son of the couple.

Well, what happened next was quite predictable thanks to the heavy dose of mythological tales, serials and movies that we, as Indians, get to see as we grow up. Kans holds Devaki and Vasudev in a dungeon and one by one, kills the first seven sons borne by the couple. After the birth of Krishna, Vasudev secretly takes the baby all the way to Gokul after crossing the river Yamuna on a stormy night.

Kans somehow manages to learn about this escape and sends the evil witch Putna to kill baby Krishna by breast feeding the baby with poisoned milk. But he fails in his attempt as Putna was killed by baby Krishna. Determined to get rid of his nemesis, Kans sends Bakasur, a cruel wicked bird with some attributes of a vulture to kill the baby. But he too fails making Kans more and more desperate and frightened. All this is already known to us as most of us have already watched the television series. However, viewing the same in 3D with a group of kids, most of whom are unaware of the turn of events, is an entirely different and exciting experience.

The movie end on lines similar to the TV series when Krishna comes face- to-face with Kans. He defeats and kills Kans, frees his parents from the dungeon, reinstates Vasudev as the King of Mathura and ends the evil and tyrannical reign of the wicked king Kans.

The animation is effortless yet a visual delight. The many scenes where Kans is shown venting his anger are sure to give anyone goose bumps. Some other scenes in the movie where we see Krishna in his playful mood and portions where he is seen thieving butter from the village ladies (Gopis) are a delight to watch.

The voice-overs in the movie are perfect. Om Puri, who gives voice to the character of Kans, was excellent. One can easily say that no one could have done better. The evil laugh and the harsh baritone make the cartoon character alive. Yashoda's sweet voice was rendered by Juhi Chawla. I feel that Manoj Vajpayee, who gives voice to the character of Nand, was a tad under-used.

There is also very little mention of the growing love-affair between Krishna and Radha, though in some scenes we see Radha swinging happily to the tune of the flute played by Krishna. The songs in the movie may seem a bit too much especially for the kids, but they are sweet and hummable.

Overall, the movie might be a bit lengthy keeping in mind the fact that it was made entirely for kids. However, I will not suggest missing this movie. A visual delight and great entertainment, Krishna Aur Kans is a must-see.
