Here are 5 reasons why Kurukshetra is a must watch!
1. It’s an epic mythology:
The most important reason is that the story is based on the epic mythology Mahabarata. Indians are very fond of mythologies, be it Ramayana or Mahabarata. Every film based on mythology always has an interesting interpretation and a different way of looking at it that Indians never get tired of! This one, too, seems very interesting.
2. Darshan as Duryodhana:
Darshan, as versatile as he is, has never been seen playing the role of a God! This one’s unique also because the story will also be told from Duryodhana’s perspective which is new angle to the film. It will be interesting to see him play the role of Duryodhana.
3. It’s a star cast:
The film brings together a star cast that has never been seen before! It is interesting to see charascters like Sonu Sood, who is known for his villain roles and chiseled body to play a role in this epic mythology. The star cast comprises of actors like Ambarish as Bhishma, Ravichandran as Krishna, Nikhil Gowda as Abhimanyu, Sneha as Draupadi, Arjun Sarja as Karna, and so on.
4. This mythology in 3D:
We’ve seen many films in 3D! But never has anyone witness Indian Mythology in 3D! This one’s definitely worth an experience!
5. 10/10 Visual Effects:
The VFX has amazingly been created by technicians who have also said to have worked on Bahubali. With a set that looks greater than life and a mix of 3D, your eyes need a little treat, after all!
