Blending animation techniques, but leaning a little too heavily on some cel-shaded CG characters that don’t quite work, the first film to be produced by UTV since Disney took a controlling share is, nonetheless, looking distinctive and epic.
Some of that really works, some of it just doesn’t have enough life in it. Still, I want to see the whole thing, and hope it will go international, somehow.
Cartoon Brew offer this rough translation of the dialogue:
“Have the mothers of earth stopped giving birth to brave men?”
“Is there an archer (who can accomplish this)? Is there?!”
Drona: “Yudhishtira, what do you see?”
Yudhishtira: “Ten mango trees, three Bo-trees and one Audumbar tree.”
Drona: “Move aside! Arjun…?”
Arjun: “My eye sees only the eye of the bird, teacher.”
Drona: “Then release the arrow!”
“If you have to break the Pandavas, then first attack… Arjun!”
Draupadi: “Give me your word – that you will take vengeance for my humiliation from all the Kauravas!”
“Create the chakravyuha (circular formation)!”
Drona: “Get ready for battle!”
“Forget about victory and defeat – focus on action and you will fear nothing.”
