In Ayodhya, the royal palace of Kosala kingdom in ancient India, four princes were born to three queens, each of whom grew to great stature. After being banished from the palace for fourteen years due to court intrigue, Prince Rama retreated to the forest with his beautiful wife Sita. Then, Rama, who had vanquished the demons of the forest, invites the wrath of the demon king Ravana, and his wife Sita is kidnapped. Rama goes to rescue Sita with the help of the monkey army. But while fighting the powerful Ravana army, his brother Lakshmana is seriously wounded. At this time, Hanuman, the general of the monkey army, flew to the Himalayas and carried a mountain of medicinal herbs that healed his wounds, saving his life. Eventually, Rama's army defeated Ravana's army using the "Heavenly Weapons" and returned to Ayodhya in triumph.

Prologue :-

Production began in 1984 when Koichi Sasaki on the Japanese side and Ram Mohan, India's leading animation director, on the Indian side came together. The Indian side was in charge of the scenario, art settings, dialogue recording, music, etc., while the Japanese side was in charge of the storyboards, background, original drawings, animation, coloring, photography, and editing. On the Indian side, top-notch scenario writer, music director, artists, and film actors of the day participated, while on the Japanese side, a total of 450 people, including excellent animators who were also active in Hayao Miyazaki's works, worked tirelessly to create more than 100,000 hand-drawn celluloid pictures. It was completed in December 1992 after nine years and investment of approximately 800 million yen.
