quick review:

A quick overview of Hindu mythology for kids. Doesn't look like it is completely researched or devoid of biases, though!

Plot Summary

Since, this a well-known mythological story and is way too long too, I'll just point to the wikipedia link for those of you who want details.

What Worked

I always liked the way the chronological order of the avatars resembles Darwin's theory of evolution.

Also, I always liked how close to human some of the aspects of the Gods and demons were in Hindu mythology. They also got angry, lusted for women, had fears, were jealous, etc.

What did not

Note: This section simply lists the things that I did not like in this movie. This is not the overall impression about this movie. Please read the full review here

I just don't like the idea of "Pray with a true heart and you will get what you ask for." One has to work hard towards getting what we want. All you can ask for is moral support and goodwill, which no God is going to refuse anyway - whether you pray or not.
