Sahara One has unleashed the monkey God on hapless viewers in the Sagarsí new show called Jai Jai Jai Bajrangbali. It starts with saint Tulsidasís perseverance to please Hanuman who, in turn, is the only medium to make him one with Lord Ram.

In the process, Tulsidas goes back to the beginning when the Gods got together to put a stop to the arrogant Shiv devotee, the 10-headed Ravana. Lord Shiva himself had to take the form of Hanuman and planted himself in the womb of Anjana, wife of Kesari, king of the monkeys.

Pawan, the wind-God, helped Shiva in bringing Hanuman to life to end the misery and havoc wreaked by Ravan on rishi munis as he tortured them and invited their wrath. The rishis, in turn, cursed him that he would meet his downfall at the hands of Hanuman when a noble King would make him pay for his sins.

While Hanuman has been part of our lives since the days of Doordarshan and the late Ramanand Sagarís Ramayan, itís also taken animated forms in endearing childrenís films, so itís painful to sit through this tacky production. Ravanaís sword is a cardboard toy while the torture scenes of the rishi munis are funny, to say the least. Everyone goes through their jobs seriously but are let down by shoddy production values.

In a day and age when everything is becoming hi-tech and computer aided, Jai Bajrangbali should have been an enterprise, best untouched. What could have been a smart, super depiction of the mythical monkey- God, is reduced to a tacky contender for the primetime slot.

As for the performances, itís evident that Nimay Bali is relishing every bit of being Ravan, complete with an ominous background score and a devilish laughÖAlas, itís a waste.


Rent a DVD of the animated Hanuman film instead.
