Arjun: The Warrior Prince is a mythological action adventure where we follow Arjun from a young boy to the legendary warrior that he became.
A teaser was released a few months ago but this is the first full trailer we get to see and funnily enough the character design seems very similar to that other religious animated movie by rival animation studio Dreamworks. The movie seems to be a mix of 2D styled characters on a 3D background which seems to feel a bit of an odd sense but usually these shots get refined closer to release (Remember how weird the first shots of the Hulk were in the first Avengers trailer?)
Directed by Arnab Chaudari and music by the awesome duo of Vishal Shekhar, there is a great market for animation but the audience need to accept it as something that adults can also enjoy, which doesn’t seem to be the case with some of the previous animated features like Roadside Romeo. And knowing some of the themes in Arjun’s story, it would definitely be interesting for grown ups to watch, even if you consider the movie as a learning experience about Hindu Mythology aside from Heidi Klum playing dress up for Halloween.
Here is a synopsis:
Legend knows him as an archer of unwavering focus, the soldier who fought a battle in his own heart before taking up arms against his enemy. This is the untold story of Arjun, hero of the Mahabharata. A precocious talent plunged from boyhood and innocence into a murky world of deceit and betrayal, coming of age to become the most powerful warrior of his time. From the dusty plains of Hastinapur to the icy peaks of the Himalayas, Arjun: The Warrior Prince is the story of a man discovering what it takes to be a hero.
