Krishna As you can clearly see I was't very impressed with the storytelling Dialogues were filled with large words and very little emotions And the script wasn't compelling enough It was no match to the grandeur of the illustrations that accompanied it Krishna is a character I've adored all my life I've heard numerous stories of him as the butter thief the prankster and the undeniably wise guide of Arjun As a Hindu I grew up amidst stories of Kannaiya I have sung bhajans in his praise; I have danced to his 'leelas'So when Krishna is such a big part of my life I had huge expectations for this graphic novelAnd I was disappointedThat said I think that the artwork itself is mind blowing See I know all of these stories already So I would sit late at night propped against my pillow open this graphic novel and ogle at the artwork with starry eyes It's worth itI think that Indian graphic novels can be done in a much bigger scale and scores better uality wise We have the stories We just need the storytellers to do it right This graphic novel about Krishna is really a highlight real of Krishna's life As such there are just the main scenes after another main scene because there's no time or chance to explore a story and if Shweta had tried that then this book would be 1500 pages long not 152 So the story is the same one we have been seeing throughout being an Indian Hindu and the best part about it are the illustrations though they also dip in some places mostly they are gorgeous I liked this book a lot after all it had a familiar story and wonderful graphics So do try this graphic novel and try for yourself and then Keep on ReadingI have always loved comics and I hope that I will always love them Even though I grew up reading local Indian comics like Raj Comics or Diamond Comics or even Manoj Comics now's the time to catch up on the international and classic comics and Graphic novels I am on my uest to read as many comics as I can I Love comics to bit may comics never leave my side I loved reading this and love reading you should also read what you love and then just Keep on Reading The first thing that caught my eyes was the art I absolutely loved it Most panels were vibrant and absolutely gorgeous especially the scenes of Lord Vishnu up in Vaikund I liked how some panels were bright and others were dull to go with the mood of the story My rating is mostly for the artworkI liked the pacing of the story It was like reading an illustrated CliffsNotes on Lord Krishna's scenes from the Mahabharata It was a tad too wordy which is understandable when adapting such a big story into a graphic novel People who don't like too much text in their graphic novel may not enjoy this but I would still recommend this book for the artwork Krishna is full of colour sometimes vibrant and sometimes toned down; the colours always compliment the mood In his godly moments Krishna's blues become brighter with glowing highlights For those unfamiliar with Indian mythology an introduction is provided with each chapter In the first part a great tyrant rules the land unjustly and so Krishna is reborn to protect dharma Even as a child he defeats demons that are sent to assassinate him He is rash but brave and is protected by his divine right No matter how many strange events happen to him the villagers always just accept and forget remaining none the wiser to his true self In a world full of demons and gods maybe this is commonplace but their reaction is still too muted Krishna's brother Balarama is also uite special and manages to defeat several demons as well After the tyrant is defeated and the real king restored Krishna rescues Rukmini who he then takes as his wife The next few chapters are about the great war that is fought between the Pandavas and Kauravas Even though of the same family the war must happen to restore order Krishna acts in the role of adviser being a better ally to have than an entire army Finally his time on earth comes to an end through the will of a curse but in his time there he left behind many teachings to be passed on of which the basics are mentioned in the preceding chapters Although Krishna has many virtues his wisdom is the most prominent for often than not his enemies are defeated by his wise actions rather than his strength He is a god that cares for the people and the family he is born into This adaption does not include all his aspects but does a fair job showing what it does Evil Rakshasa Kalanemi is back on Earth this time appearing as Kansa the tyrant king of Mathura To vanuish him and his horde of evil monsters Lord Vishnu comes to Earth in his eighth avatar Krishna the defender of dharma Since his birth Krishna valiantly fights evil monsters showing courage and valour But as he grows up and becomes a councillor of the race of Yadavas he observes that the real struggle in this age is not with magical monsters but with evil kings and warriors Accompany this wise and courageous hero on his journey on Earth as he conuers evil to put mankind back on the path of righteousness This was an amazing beautiful approachable take on Indian mythology I have always been interested but have found straight texts too complex with unfamiliar namesplaces so this was wonderful to look at and very informative The artworkOhthe artwork Amazed by the beauty of the illustrations loved this book This is so beautiful I love the art The artwork is stupendous but there's something a little bit cheeky about taking a major epic like MAHABHARATA and turning it into a graphic novel That said it gets the story of Lord Krishna's life across uite clearly He's an avatar of Vishnu come to mortal form to repress evil In the course of his life and teachings there are some hard truths none difficult that ones he imparts to Arjuna on the eve of the cosmically epic battle between the Pandavas and the Kauravas who cheated the Pandavas out of their inheritance with loaded dice Someone forgot to tell Duryodhana what goes around comes around A universal truism if there ever was one Everything is change; nothing permanent One must do one's duty without attachment and one must always strive for justice and righteousness
