Trama e commenti: truveo.com: «...Circola anche una pessima versione del 2000 di soli 97min (Prince of Light) ottenuta dal montaggio di questa [Ramayana - The legend of prince Rama] che stravolge la trama originale e la rende più "avventura disneyana"! Questa versione doppiata in inglese-indiano è meno riuscita della ottima versione originale hindi, eccellente dal punto di vista recitativo e del dramma».

To the north, lived Dashrath, a good King, whose people prospered under his rule, until the day when Ravan sends an army of evil demons to terrorize his people. To protect themselves, Dashrath's people pray to their God, who sends their King a son from heaven. His name is Ram. Ram grows up and eventually wins the hand of Sita, a princess of matchless beauty. They fall deeply in love and marry. While living in the forest, in harmony with nature and all living things, Sita is kidnapped by King Ravan, who uses his evil power to diguse himself as a holy man begging for food. Driven by undying love for Sita, Ram sets out to find the evil kingdom Lanka, with brother Lakshman by his side. Along the way, they befriend a magical monkey, Hanuman, who lends the support of his army in the quest. Once in Lanka, they are met by Ravan's army of demons and enter into the battle unlike any the mortal world has ever experienced. Finally, it comes down to the two mightiest soldiers in the world. Ravan versus Ram. After a long, intense battle Ram defeats the evil kind, reunites with his beloved bride and restores freedom to the people of Lanka».
