Ramyug will highlight the narrative of Lord Rama in a new and nevermore seen manner.
The story of Rama is obtained from the antique Hindu epic of Ramayana, which dates from 500 BCE to 100 BCE. The Ramayan describes the tale of Ayodhya, in which Lord Rama was aimed.

PLUS POINTS :
1) With The gym torsos on display and the emphasis on special effects, Ramyug wants to be a vaguely modernized retelling of the Ramayana, a Game of Thrones-flavoured retelling, if you will.
2) At its best, Game of Thrones worked because the dialogue was ambitious and tried to establish connections across eras and cultures.
3) In the absence of such ambition, a period drama’s dialogue then has to gun for era-specific authenticity and, of course, the strength of characterization.
4) If people are looking to tap into an interview that gorged Game of Thrones, Kohli and Co. will do much better than this, I’m nervous. The VFX in the ‘magic’ series is still tolerable, but the struggle visual effects are funny and video-gamey.
NEGATIVE POINTS :
1) Ramyug, then, is just another disappointing entry in Bollywood’s mythological genre.
2) Graphic India and Hotstar’s animated show The Legend of Hanuman also suffer from subpar graphics and animation at least five to six years behind international standards.
3) It’s not for the loss of intent either, as plural A-list Indian actors and directors have expressed interest in starting big, ambitious, expensive whimsical projects of their personal.
The epic’s poetic stature and marvelous story mean that the level of Rama has been constantly retold by some of India’s greatest writers, both in Sanskrit and regional languages. In northern India, the annual Ram-lila or ‘Rama-play’ is performed at the autumn festival of Dassehra to celebrate with Rama and Sita the eventual triumph of light over darkness. Ramyug, the latest visual interpretation of this ancient text, seeks to bring modern technology in a never-before-used manner to narrate the epic.
