The Legend Of Buddha
SOME STORIES have an appeal even millions of years after they have happened. Even more so when it is about someone like Buddha. The prince who gave up worldly pleasures to understand the meaning of life. The man who left his kingdom, in search of salvation and to understand life and death. As he practiced austerity and penance he found truth under a tree in Bodh Gaya where a divine light made him realise the truth within every human being.
What better message can there be in these troubled times when the teachings of this great soul can make the world a better place? And what better target can there be than children who are now growing up on a diet of violence and sensual pleasures?
Thinking along these lines, Pentamedia Graphics Ltd has come up with "The Legend Of Buddha" in 2 D animation which should entertain yet educate children and adults alike. Pentamedia Graphics brings about a 90-minute venture full of painstaking animation and effects, coming to form in a burst of colour, music and ideals.
The film, as such, is not a match to the ones that come out of Hollywood, especially Disney. But the story is so powerful and full of emotion that you can appreciate the magnificent effort put into it, using talents from India, Singapore and the Philippines.
Produced by Pentamedia Graphics Ltd and co-produced by the Economic Development Board of Singapore, these are positive steps to providing world-class animated films from India.
