Itihasa-purana - II
Some of the Tamil and Telugu movies have etched indelible characterization marks in public's mind. In the tamil movie Karna, NTR's portrayal as Krishna is unparalleled as was Shivaji's portrayal of Karna. In the movie Karna prays to a murthi of Surya Deva - it is a magnificent murthi - Surya in all splendor on a chariot driven by horses.



The tamil and telugu movies depicting our puranas would put Ben-Hur and Ten-Commandments to shame, truly colossal portrayals.

More at the link, seemed too long to paste here.



The famous Telugu & Tamizh movies titled Mayabazaar are based on this folk story.

Bharat, Not only the Mayabazar was remade in Telugu and Tamil but was made in Hindi in early 1940s.I read somewhere that "Mayabazar' was staged at street dramas by Marathi travelling theater groups before the advent of cinema. I had taped the 1940s version of Mayabazar and was astounded how close the Telugu version of late 50s was to that version.



BTW I have the Telugu songs on the ipod and listen often while driving to work. In mid 80s we had hired a taxi to go to Adilabad from hyd. the driver put the cassettee of the whole film and since we were familiar we didnt need any video to imagine the scenes.

Either I'm imagining, or I've seen their rendition containing New Clothes For Old, Ghatothkacha taking Vatsala's place and squeezing Lakshana (Lakshmana?) Kumar's hand during the sham-wedding until Duryodhana's son faints..., Abhimanyu marrying Vatsala.

Will try to confirm.

But Telugu movies top it, IMO.

Amar Chitra Katha's "Ghatotkacha" (also included among the three entries in ACK's "The Sons of the Pandavas" release), p.9-15. The intro/background description says: "The story of Ghatotkacha, the son of Bheema and the Rakshasi, Hidimba[color="#800080"](a)[/color], is partly based on a popular South Indian legend and partly on the Mahabharata".
