When Rama fought Ravan, he did not look as powerful as Ravan. Ravan wore gold armour and had a strong sword. Rama however wore old cotton clothes, old ornaments in his hair and body and didn't even wear footwear. His sword was even handcrafted and ordinary. This is because Rama was banished by his mother's wishes and stuck to his old attire, even if it gave him a disadvantage. See more »

Best movie portraying Rama
29 May 2018 | by LegendofPrinceRamaSee all my reviews

This story is fascinating and much better than any other Rama movies. The portrayal of Rama is at its best. Firstly the character animations were excellent especially Rama's long black hair. Secondly the dialogue and songs are so prideful to us all. I also like the fight scenes which includes Rama. The final battle between Rama and Ravan was amazing as it shows the power of both warriors and how detailed animation is (exploding arrow wounding Rama, Rama covered in wounds) I would recommend anyone to watch this movie
