Kaal – Synopsis


Pratham Pathak lost his life in a train accident. But that was not end but a beginning. Beginning of something that will not just change his life but also the way he sees the world he lives in too. Pratham Pathak rise again from the dead but his previous life’s memories are gone. Soon he discovers that he has been chosen to play an important role – role of Garuda-Dut. By none other than Lord Garuda who has currently been sitting on the throne of Naraka.


Kaal – Story

The concept or the idea behind Kaal has not been explored in Indian comics before. It is 100% original.

But, there are several confusions in the comic book especially in the first part. We weren’t sure about the Pratham’s origin until we read the synopsis of the comic book on its official website. It says that Pratham was unique case after death. His good and bad deeds were perfectly equal which made him incarnated not just as yamdut but a man too.

Another thing that affected storyline was an instance when Lord Garuda set his wrath upon Garuda-dut as someone stole his lashes. We could not find a reason why Pratham Pathak should be guilty of that theft.

We felt that the book 1 (Kaal – Reap What you Saw) started well but lost its plot in the mid. There were many flaws in the writing. Moreover, the scenes and the punishments of hell is not something that we have not read before. Whoever read Hindu sacred books knows that very well. Some of us even knew that even before reading sacred books. For more than half of the book, the primary focus of the writer was to introduce different punishments of the hell.

Kaal – Aarambh did unexpectedly well in comparison to book 1. The plot of the storyline finally started moving with the Aarambh. Moreover, you will start understanding the role of Pratham as Garuda-dut.

Kaal – Dialogues, Calligraphy and Graphic Design – 8.1

Dialogues are easy and understandable. Sometimes they uplift the story while some time they seem repetitive.

Calligraphy – 8

  • Kaal – Reap What you Saw – 6

There is noticeable problem with the calligraphy in the first issue. But all the mistakes have get fixed in the later issue.

Graphic Design – 8.5

  • Kaal – Reap What you Saw – 7
  • Kaal – Aarambh – 10

The color fundamentals are poor in the book 1. Although, using different color tones in the speech bubbles for different characters helped in the flow of the reading. The text is hardly visible in some panels. Again, fixed in the book 2.

Kaal – Inside Art – 8.5

This is the part where we feel uncomfortable giving it a score. The artwork is stupendous in most of the parts but sometimes it fell even below average. It is understandable in the second part as two different artists has worked on it but the difference is visible in the first part as well.

  • Kaal – Reap What you Saw – 8
  • Kaal – Aarambh – 9

Kaal – Cover Art – 9

Cover art for both parts of the series are very well executed. Both are good at their own level. We loved the later one more.

  1. Visit the world of living and dead with Pratham Pathak, in a time, when Garuda is keeping Yama’s throne warm. Many interesting sub plots with a slight vibe of Ghost Rider & Spawn makes this book feel like a deja vu while maintaining its own originality. The art is good, however, printing was a bit too deep that kinda ruined the colors and some details too.
