Legend knows him as an archer of unwavering focus, the soldier who fought a battle in his own heart before taking up arms against his enemy. This is the untold story of Arjun, hero of the Mahabharata.

The movie is a fascinating retelling of a part of the great epic of Mahabharata. Some people are puritan type and they easily get offended. Every time somebody makes a new work of art - like this movie, these guys get upset. Get a life guys - Mahabharata has been retold hundreds of times through 2 millennia and more.Lot of reviewers liked the animation. Frankly, that was the only part that is not up to the world standard. The surfaces are polygonal and in general less refined (scale and perspectives are wrong etc.) than what you get today in the best of world cinema. The landscape and castles are OK but sometimes seem to be lifted from some standard library of animation. But what we have here is no small feat assuming that the maker did not have the budget or the studios of Hollywood scale.There is a lot of blood - enough that MPAA could consider it R rated. On the positive side, the narration is binding, the story moves fast and the details on the clothes and jewelry etc is quite charming. The makers seem to have done a fair amount of research on the topic and the story seems realistic - not like sop-opera version of BR Chopra.
