DASHAVATAR combines old world and modern sensibilities
While Kamal Hassan is getting his magnum opus DASAVATHARAM together, an animation film has already been conceptualized and completed. The film is called DASHAVATAR which is based on 10 incarnations of Lord Vishnu seen by a boy and a girl.
The film's plot goes like this - Two children escape from the kidnappers in the temple (which is set on fire) and are saved by Lord Vishnu. Naarad, who comes in the avtar of a pujari, tries to convince the children that it was Lord Vishnu himself who saved them. This is when he takes the children to the time when the world was going through the cosmic resolution. In the process, DASHAVATAR also knits together the legends of Ram, Krishna, Parshuram, Vaman, Narsimha, Buddha and the tales of Vishnu in earlier avatars Matsya, Kurma, Varaha and finally Kalki.
As per the film's director Bhavik, 'DASHAVATAR has a very interesting story telling pattern in which the old world sensitivities would appeal to the modern mind.'
Produced by Vimal Shah under the banner of Pune-based Anushvi Productions in association with Phoebus Creations Media Pvt Ltd., DASHAVATAR, which comes with the tagline of EVERY ERA HAS A HERO, is aiming for a release these summer holidays.
