Rama’s Ring Synopsis

Rama’s ring is again a collection of stories unlike the title of the comic book which only promotes one of the 9 stories in the book. We came to know about Rama’s ring when it won runner up position in best cover for an Indian comic in comic con India awards 2020. Yet, it is not the cover that got our attention but the comic book title. The Rama’s ring is one of the stories that is famous more among the young generation as the story brings many questions and assumptions to the table. The story excites young minds about the existence of many dimensions’ theory related to scientific theories.

Rama’s ring consists of 9 less-known stories; 5 from Ramayana and 4 from the Mahabharata. Rama’s ring only illustrates what we already know which left us with a bitter taste, but the other lesser-known stories are worth reading. The book includes stories from different popular versions of Ramayana and Mahabharata. If you are not rigid about what you already know, you will love reading them. These stories are jaatak kathaeyin that may or may not be true, but they are what people from different cultures and religious groups believe.

Except for 9 stories, the book also improves your knowledge about the popular versions of Ramayana and its scholars. Rama’s ring also teaches about various art forms performed across India and convey the essence of Ramayana and Mahabharta. Some of the art forms explained in Rama’s ring are Tholpaavakoothu, Therukoothu, Bhari gan, Tharu Barka Naach, Paandavani, and Pandav Nritya.

The Five Golden Arrows – This story is also taken from oral folkore.

As the stories are written and illustrated by different artists, my experience varied a lot. Alike Shakti, we felt some stories are illustrated without trying to work on the presentation. The weakest storylines are defeating Indrajit and saving Lakshmana. The story that disappointed us most is Rama’s ring as it is a well-known story and ACK has not provided anything extra on the matter. The other 6 stories are satisfactory and our favorite one is five golden arrows. Our cumulative score for the story is 6.

The concept of all ACK stories are always same. They want to publish lesser known stories to ACK readers. Our only complaint is that they did not provide what they promised with the title. We give it 8 for concept.

Grip of stories is okay. The weakest storyline is Saving Lakshmana where we saw crossover of Mahabharata and Ramayana characters. We give it 7.

Our average score for story part is 7.

Rama’s Ring: Dialogues – 6

Dialogues are ordinary and sometimes lifeless. We could not find anything interesting in dialogues. Our score for dialogue is 6.

Rama’s Ring Cover Art – 8

Cover art is good. It is illustrated by Dilip Kadam. We are still not sure how it was rated above so many good covers in comic con 2020. Our score for art is 8.

Rama’s Ring Inside Art – 9

The inside art is Savior for Rama’s Ring. You get different flavor of art from different artists namely, Durgesh Velhal, Rajib Das, Charbak Dipta and Sunderlal. For the variety of art and graphics, we give it 9.
