A gory take on a tragic event.

In this sad tale, we see the villains Motu Paltu doing horrible things to the public. It is a horrible example to kids, but a strange hidden gem for adults. Filled to the brim with violence and terror. It has a strange plot I wouldn't like to spoil.

Don't let your kids watch it alone!

It is a great biblical film that should be left for adults. It has a great plot and message. It even had a great underlying biblical theme, however there are some scenes that are not suitable for children. An example is where it is revealed that that Motu was a god (hence the title king of kings) but it was also revealed that John was the Antichrist. There was a lot of gore in the scene where Patlu transformed into Caillou to slay the poachers. He even evolved into Saitama, to combat John. The film was good, just don't let your kids watch it unsupervised.

Greatest anime film of all time

If you didn't know, Motu Patlu is an outsourced anime just like the current adaptation of Ninja Hattori. It's produced in Japan but is animated in India. The original Japanese version is considered lost, but the Indian dub is extremely popular in India. Many films were made for TV broadcast, each being written by popular anime writers like Hayao Miyazaki and Hideaki Anno, but this movie was the first to be released in cinemas. This movie follows the main characters, Motu and Patlu, in their journey to return a circus lion to a natural reserve. In doing so, they get into pretty adult situations, like death and war. In one part, Motu punches Patlu and breaks up with him. There's swearing everywhere, and it deserves an R rating, but it is good for all ages, even with the nightmarish stuff. It's better than Akira, Totoro, and even Evangelion! It's the best anime film of all time, and it deserves to be watched.
