Filmmakers have always been fascinated by mythology, especially Mahabharat and are always eager to translate the epic on to the big screen. Similarly, the producer of the Vidya Balan starrer Kahaani, Jayantilal Gada, MD, Pen India Pvt Ltd has also tried his hand at attempting the big budget animated version of the holy scripture.
The grand epic that has seen countless versions over the years, has got its first ever animation makeover. This also marks the epic tale’s first move towards the big cinema screen.
Producer Jayantilal Gada managed a casting coup of sorts when he got stars like Amitabh Bachchan, Ajay Devgn, Anil Kapoor, Jackie Shroff, and Vidya Balan for his ambitious Mahabharat in 3D.
The high budget film reportedly comes with an enviable cast of actors – Amitabh Bachchan has lend his voice to Bhishma, while Sunny Deol does the same for Bheem, Draupadi owes her voice to Vidya Balan, and Yudhistir to Manoj Bajpai. Actor Ajay Devgan too has lend his voice to Arjun, Anil Kapoor voices Karna, Jackie Shroff voices Duryodhan and Anupam Kher will be heard playing Shakuni.
The other interesting bit about the film is the fact that the characters bear a strong resembalnce to the actors lending them their voices. This, of course, was a planned effort on the makers’ side.
While the characters are impressive, the movie’s animation isn’t that appealing. It is fair to middling, and could have been better.
