  •  Bollywood Hungama - Rating-6
KRRISH-3 and DHOOM-3, larger than life films both, catered to a big chunk of kids and kids at heart. Nonetheless, there's no denying that there's a genuine dearth of movies that will enable the kid in you to come to the forefront. The animation film MAHABHARAT fills that void!

  •  Times of India -Meena Iyer Rating-7
48 years after Babubhai Mistry's Mahabharat with Pradeep Kumar, Dara Singh, Padmini and Abhi Bhattacharya was released, a full-computerised version of the epic directed by Amaan Khan hits theatres today. Fully relevant today because it deals with basic human characteristics like greed, duty, fidelity

  •  Mumbai Mirror -Karan Anshuman Rating-5
The dogged attempt by Indian filmmakers and studios to bravely continue and dabble with animation has to be saluted. At a time when their core audience - kids - is used to watching multiple 24/7 international animation channels and picture perfect Pixar movies, every few months there will be at least one

  •  Rediff -Sukanya Verma Rating-4
If Disney conveniently changed the tragic outcome of The Little Mermaid or The Jungle Book to craft an aww-inducing happy ending that would please its young audience, Indian animators condense copious chapters of Hindu mythology to render it uncomplicated for kids.

  •  DNA -Tushar Joshi Rating-3
An animated version of one of our most read and revered epics in Indian literature,Mahabharat 3D is a feeble attempt to use technological wizardry to create interest in cinema goers. With an ensemble that boasts names of Amitabh BachchanAnil Kapoor and VidyaBalan a lot was expected.

  •  Glamsham -Martin D'Souza Rating-4
MAHABHARAT, the animated movie starts preaching in the first scene itself and also ends up shouting its sermon [of living in harmony] in the last scene.For a movie to hit the right buttons with the audience, it should first have an arresting subject, besides being delivered in style.

  •  Koimoi -Mohar Basu Rating-4
The script of Mahabharat – 3D remains the same that the original entails but the execution isn’t praiseworthy at all. The best thing about watching an animation film is to enjoy it and when it isn’t fun enough you tend to lose interest. Though mythological adaptations have been adept for making

  •  Mid Day -Shubha Shetty Saha Rating-5
Mahabharata is touted as the costliest animation film to come out from India. But looks like our costliest is still not good enough -- considering that we have a long way to go before even reach the standards of the animations that come out from the West.

  •  India Today -Faheem Ruhani Rating-5
Make no mistake. The makers of Mahabharat make it amply clear, at the outset that they are targeting the young audience of India. And how exactly do they tell you that? Before we are transported to the world of Hastinapur and Kurukshetra, we are introduced to two young boys of school going age

  •  Now Running -Mansha Rastogi Rating-3
It's amazing how despite the countless animated versions of our mythological sagas like Ramayan or Mahabharat being televised on small screen, filmmakers still invest heaps of money on making animation movies on the same. The latest case is that of producer Jayantilal Gada and director

  •  Sify -Sonia Chopra Rating-3
One of our most important epics, Mahabharata is a tale full of nuance, morals and intrigue. It is indeed heartbreaking then to see the tale bland and watered down in the name of animation.This film, touted to be India's most expensive animation, is as much an eye-sore as it is dull.
