'Krishna aur Kans' chronicles early life of Vishnu avatar
Gods, yes. Dragons, yes. Monsters, yes. Giants, yes. Anthropomorphic animals, … eh. You might still be interested in this 2+-minute 3D stereo trailer for the Krishna aur Kans animated feature, slated for release on August 3, a week before this year’s Janmashtani (a major Hindu religious holiday to celebrate the birthday and youthful adventures of Krishna, an avatar of the god Vishnu).
Directed by Vikram Veturi, the movie chronicles Lord Krishna’s early years, from his birth as the nemesis of his tyrannical uncle Kans, to his combat against demons at the age of 10.
Incidentally, if it seems like there has been a lot about Indian animated features on Flayrah lately, there are six Indian animated features coming in the next four months:
- Chhota Bheem and the Curse of Damyaan (a juvenile fantasy action-adventure with a talking monkey among the supporting cast)
- Krishna aur Kans (religious epic with lots of battles against demons and dragons, culminating in the boy Krishna’s life-or-death fight against his evil Uncle Kans – you can read about it on Wikipedia)
- Arjun (historical battle epic; very dramatic but nothing remotely anthro)
- Sons of Rama (more religious fantasy action based upon Hindu mythology)
- Delhi Safari (lots of anthro animals, slated for a major American release next year redubbed with Jason Alexander, Cary Elwes, Christopher Lloyd, etc.), and
- Gul Bakawli (a historical romance that has been filmed in many live-action versions in many Indian languages over the years)
I expect that Delhi Safari is the only one that will be of interest to Flayrah’s readers; click the links above for trailers, where available.
