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 ...

Interminable
8 December 2016 | by See all my reviews

I'm all for watching Indian fantasy films, and I find it a pity that they're so hard to get hold of in the west; I've only seen or had access to a couple in all my decades of movie watching. Sadly, while LORD HANUMAN has plenty of cheesy potential in its 1970s-era story of the monkey god and his trials and tribulations among the celestial entities, at three hours this film is nothing more than interminable.

I'm always interested in the parallels between this kind of Hindu mythology and that seen in China, particularly the inimitable Monkey seen in the classic JOURNEY TO THE WEST; surely the two characters of Monkey and Hanuman are one and the same? In any case, LORD HANUMAN is a cheesy, low budget fantasy piece padded out with endless musical numbers and endless shouted dialogue.

The whole story feels episodic and repetitive, with the main character going from one situation to the next. The silly action scenes seem to have been filmed with kids in mind and the adventures feature Hanuman having people pull on his tail and set it on fire - it's that kind of production and I wasn't sure whether I was supposed to be laughing along with it or not. The acting is exaggerated and the whole film has a surreal feel to it. Unfortunately the pacing is very slow and my energy flagged about an hour in, making it a real slog to get to the end. I also found the main character's prosthetics oddly creepy.
