This animated movie won the best-animated feature on the Annecy International animation festival, and it also got the award nomination of the independent spirit of the 24th American independent filmfest. There is no doubt that this film is a wonderful film otherwise it cannot win and get these honors and awards and the focus from so many people around the world. But there are still many people think this film is a ridiculous drama and it spins the truth of the Rama story, especially from someone who calls themselves Hindutva. Regardless of what commends or critics from others, as for me, I think this film is a really great and novel film that also shows the respect of Hindus cultures combined with some personal ideas and stories. The total film was combined with 2 lines: the first line was about the Rama’s life story that based on the Ramayana. Nina Paley, the filmmaker, used a colorful depicts way that coalesced the modern realism with the American popular cartoon styles, and then matched it with Annette Abraham Shaw’s blues trills. I think Paley’s use of the modern ways and technique to tell a beautiful and classical story of Hindus religious was really appealing and fantastic. From another aspect, it was much easier for our publics and some people who lacked the knowledge of Hinduism to enjoy and understand the connotations and contents of the Hinduism religious. This modern elements and…
