Excellent movie
15 September 2017 | by tusharshuklaaSee all my reviews

I saw this movie when I was a little kid and I've been in love with this movie since then. Animation, music, voice overs, everything is brilliant. Since the Ramayana cannot be completely illustrated within two-three hours but still, this is amazing. A must watch movie. And yes, do not watch this movie thinking you are going to watch a cartoon or something.
