Rama, the eldest prince of the Kingdom of Ayodhya, is beloved by all and the natural successor to his father's throne. However, when one of his father's wives conspires to get her son on the throne instead, Rama ends up being banished into the woods for 14 years. Accompanied by his wife, Sita, and his brother, Lakshman—Rama tries to make the most of life in exile despite his challenges.

The trio's life in the forest is interrupted, however, when Demon King Ravan sets his sights on Sita. Using a crafty plan, he manages to distract Rama and steal Sita away to his castle. Heartbroken and distraught, Rama searches every corner of the world for his wife, unaware of the lengths he will have to go to rescue her.

A 4K remastered version was launched in 2022, marking the 70th anniversary of India-Japan diplomatic relations.

In 1992, Japan and India were celebrating 40 years of strong diplomatic ties. A part of the celebration was this project. Which was worked on by Japanese & Indian animation studios alike and based off of the Hindu epic, Ramayana. 

I'll be honest, I'm not super familiar with the epic. As such, I probably won't notice if the film gets some details wrong. You'll have to wait for the anime versions of The Iliad, Beowulf & Journey to the West to see me get into heavy scholarly detail about adaptation differences.


We open with a countryside being terrorised by demons. Or maybe they're just British imperials in ...

This is the first anime that I've ever watched. I didn't event know that it was anime until recently. I've re-watched it many a times, for me at least, the story never gets boring.

The animation is beautiful, the war choreography is still one of the best that I have watched. Bringing the mythical epic to animation was a great task which was beautifully done by the animation studios and the artists involved. The soundtrack is just amazing. I think this is the only anime which has a Sanskrit dub including the songs.

During lockdown, due to re-telecast of the live action drama of the ...

Famous Actors You Didn't Realize Voiced Anime Dubs

Sometimes anime lands some big names to star in its English dubs. From Patrick Stewart to Bryan Cranston: these are the big name actors who make an appearance in anime… or at least, their voices do.
