Ramayana: The Legend of Prince Rama(1992); You Must Watch This Evergreen Anime Adaptation Of a Historical Event A Thousand Times For Sure


Ramayana: The Legend of Prince Rama is a 1992 anime adaptation of the legendary historical event. The anime film beautifully represents Prince Ram’s journey to fight the Rakshasa King, Ravana to stop his heinous actions once and for all and rescue the innocents along with his beloved eternal lover, Princess Sita. TOTT is here to pay tribute to this remarkable historical anime film since it is a good memory of my childhood days.

I was introduced to the epic Ramayana when I was quite young, I was hardly 5 years old. I read a picture book of Ramayana and deeply fell in love with the narrative. And still today, I find an unconditional connection to the narrative. I would love to thank you, Yugo Sako, for recreating the historical event in the form of Ramayana: The Legend of Prince Rama and depicting the magnificent content so enigmatically, that no one now can replace the radiant and Godly image of Shri Rama and Mata Sita from my memories ever.

The movie was screened on DD National here in India, but I watched the Hindi dubbed version of the movie on Cartoon Network in 2002 or 2003.

5 Evergreen Aspects of Ramayana: The Legend of Prince Rama

See, I am an Indian and Hindu, hence I watched the movie in Hindi dubbed to feel the emotions shooting out of the dialogues and sequences. Watching the movie in your native language will give you a refined scope to understand the film and its narrative, its characters, and everything minutely.

The Gorgeous Representation Of The Narrative

The serene facets of the epic Ramayana, are beautifully represented for the audience, essentially the Millenials, in this movie by Yugo Sako. If you have watched Studio Ghibli movies, you might feel a similar tranquil vibe, constantly being radiated by the graphical projections of the content. From the beginning to the end, Ramayana: The Legend of Prince Rama, emits a sense of wholesomeness.

The emotional situation will give you teary eyes, while the ambitious propositions are enough to give you rage and goosebumps. The storytelling was seamless which builds an instant connection with the audience. In fact, some shots definitely make you react the same way as the character of the anime adaptation.

Even though the demonstration is pretty simple, undoubtedly the scenes appear gorgeous, divine, and very dramatic. I can watch the movie a thousand times even after watching it over a hundred times.

The Soultouching Music

Coming to the soundtracks, the music was under Vanraj Bhatia and he did the job stupendously. Each of the melodies touches the soul and will be remembered even after years of watching the music videos. They speak out loud about what is held in the context and what will happen in the next few minutes nicely. The lyrics are very profound which adds significant depth to the montages.

These are the Hindi soundtracks and their artists-

  • Sumiran Karle Mannwa by Kavita Krishnamurthy
  • Panchvati Man Bhavan by Upwan Sadhana Sargam
  • Janani Main Rama Doot Hanuman by Udit Narayan
  • Shri Raghuvar Ki Vaanar Sena Chorus by many
  • Jai Lankeshwar Chorus by many

The Simple Yet Detailed Direction

Once you sit for watching the movie, you will be held captivated by the simple and engaging direction by Yugo Sako. The brief intro to the story of Epic Ramayana, in the beginning, is excellent for the global audience. The first few seconds narrate the history of India and Sri Lanka in the most finest and educative way possible. People of all age groups will be able to learn what happened in the Treta Yuga, why Prince Rama was born and who is he.

The movie is based on the interpretation of Valmiki’s Ramayana, who happened to meet Prince Rama, Princess Sita, and Prince Laxmana on their quest to complete the 14 years of exile. Yugo Sako was exceptional in his presentation of the historical event. Covering the facts over a 3-hour long movie is surely not enough. So, he included all the vital points to develop a mesmerizing film that will remain evergreen for ages.

The Accuracy and Significance Of The Characters

Yugo Sako took on the project of filming Ramayana: The Legend of Prince Rama with utmost sincerity and dedication. He considered every single character very important, therefore the portrayals of the minor characters were also very deep. Even you will empathize with the unknown Vanars from the Vanarsena. When Shri Rama leaves Ayodhya, the people cry their hearts out to make Shri Rama stay was also something that I felt.

Now the important and prominent characters of the movie are sure to be presented in the most accurate way, isn’t it? Here are the important characters and the voice actors from the Hindi dubbed movie-

And these are the voice actors of the English dubbed

What I enjoyed were the minor characters. They also emanated importance while adding layers to the situations on the screen. Can’t skip on the accuracy and significance of every character of Ramayana: The Legend of Prince Rama, which is very apt for teaching your younglings as well.

The Calm Ending

Once Ravana the Rakshas King of Lanka is killed, the calm and tranquil transformation of the landscape shown in the montage is very scenic and quietude. You will feel peace, finally being restored. A massive number of captives return back to their home, the grim cloud which occupied the ambiance over Lanka disappears, Vivishana is crowned the next emperor of Lanka, and our Hero along with his beloved consort and dearest brother leaves for their permanent destination, Ayodhya with a happy, content and satisfied heart.

Well, according to history, Mata Sita and Shri Rama were separated once again. This painful situation was briefed down as Shri Rama returned to Vaikunth and Mata Sita returned to Mother Earth. It was nice not to show the painful separation of these eternal lovers once again in this narrative.

TOTT’s Take On Ramayana: The Legend of Prince Rama

I watched Ramayana: The Legend of Prince Rama an unknown number of times now, and every time it was new to me even though I know the history very hard. I love the Love story of Prince Rama and Princess Sita, the brotherhood between the four sons of King Dashrataha, the friendship between Hanuman and the Suryavanshi brothers, the valiance of Prince Rama, the bravery of Prince Laxmana, our Hero’s exhibition of commitment, and ultimately the victory of Good over Evil is what is Ramayana all about.

Well, the entire piece is a masterpiece that is capable of winning your time and your heart infinite times. The film is a generous representation of the epic Ramayana for sure. Definitely, there are a huge lot of factors that I forgot to list here, make sure to comment those down and let me know.

I am pleased to recommend the movie to the nonwatchers as of yet, and those who have watched the movie, high fives to them.
