Yuvraj (prince)!

It's time for bed

Come on...

Now!

It's time to sleep, Yuvraj

Come now, shut your eyes

There

my eyes are shut

But... my ears are open

A story?

Aren't you a little

too old for fairy tales?

Yuck!

Tell me a story about a warrior

No, no...

It's late, go to sleep

There must be someone...

someone like me...

brave, heroic...

Well, there was someone...

just like you...

Who was he?

Arjun

his name was Arjun

Was he a soldier?

Or a warrior?

A warrior?

Well he thought he was one

What does that mean?

Who was he?

He was the son of Lord Indra

And he never interrupted

the telling of a story

Okay, no more questions

But I want the whole story

Don't leave anything out

The fights, the treks, the battles...

There was a vast kingdom

in Northern India

Hastinapur

Ruled by the great King Pandu

One day, he gave up his throne

to his younger brother Dhritarashtra

and went to the live

in the forest as a hermit

There he was blessed

with five children

and they lived happily together

But one day...

Pandu passed away...

and his family had

to return to Hastinapur...

Acharya Drona...

Peace be with you

And with you Vidur

Cattle herders?

You here to herd cattle?

Herd cattle?

More like live with the cattle!

Just look at size of that bull!

Watch what you say, moron!

We're not herders

we're princes!

These are your cousins, Duryodhan.

They're here to live with you

If 100 Kauravas weren't enough

to handle, here's five more!

Ashwatthama...

fetch bows for the new boys

Yudhishtir, what do you see?

I see ten mango trees, three

peepal trees and one cluster fig

There's a bird perched

on the third branch from the top...

That's enough!

Bheem...

I see only a bird...

Really?

Yes

...sitting there smelling fruit...

...while I'm dying of hunger!

Move aside...

Nakul?

Sahdev!

Whoever you are. What do you see?

Everything.

Me too.

Move aside, both of you!

Arjun?

I see an eye

and...

Nothing else

Don't you see what your brothers see?

The bird, trees, branches, fruit...

Are you blind boy?

All I see is an eye

Well then...

shoot!

Years passed

and the Kauravas and Pandavas grew up

As did their differences

The Kuru dynasty was splitting in two

at stake was the throne of Hastinapur

Hey, where did you get your donkey?

You're not ready

to play with the big boys, kid!

As ready as you are big guy!

What's this? A bull riding a horse?

This bull's going

to gore you Duryodhan!

Hey Bheem, see you later!

I told you I'd win!

You call this winning brother

Yudhishtir? I slowed down...

Oh come on!

Guruji, what do you have to say?

Oh let it go... hey!

Bheem's horses?

Duryodhan, where's Bheem?

How... how would I know?

I was ahead of him

What?

Go, look for him

Bheem, what happened?

I have no idea...

All rise for King Dhritharashtra

Long live King Dhritharashtra!

Long live the King!

So many hurdles on

the way to the throne...

Uncle Shakuni!

Tell me something nephew...

Was Bheem plain lucky

or did you not try hard enough?

You dare doubt me?

Drona is the one with the doubts

I'm convinced.

Tell me something...

do you think my father

will make me king?

Of course!

But if the council

nominates Yudhishtir...

he won't be able to stand up to them.

I understand...

...come with me.

Where are we going?

We haven't brought

any food or drink...

We haven't crossed the border yet...

It's almost sundown, let's head back

Relax uncle,

meet some friends of mine...

Susharman! Susharman!

Hey look, what a plump catch!

Get him!

Nephew!

Susharman, this is Shakuni, my uncle.

Great! We'll rob your uncle!

All of Hastinapur dances to his tune.

There are no kings here uncle...

...only us, the Trigarthas

...and we bow to no one!

And you never will, Susharman

If you feed my uncle

a meal under the stars

Uncle, how would you like your meat?

Rare?

Well done?

Or on the hoof?

Well done.

You have strange friends nephew.

They won't bow to me but...

they'll behead anyone I ask them to.

Careful...

they might turn into more

than you can handle...

don't let them become

a reason to worry.

If you want to break the Pandavas...

...get rid of Arjun first

Arjun?

The wisdom of Yudhishtir,

the strength of Bheem...

...he has both...

He will be the greatest of them all.

Duryodhan was looking

for an opportunity to strike again...

He found it at a tournament

Drona had organized for his students.

Arjun!

Who are you?

Why are you here?

They call me Karna

I am an archer

This is a tournament

for Dronacharya's students

Did he not teach you that...

...weapons were for warfare...

...not for fun and games

Come...

Fight me

...and show everyone...

what you've learned.

Hey!

Who are you?

And why are you

frightening my brother?

He's just a little boy...

...aren't you Arjun?

You're not ready for all of this...

Watch your mouth!

...and pick on

someone your own size!

Hold it, Bheem...

Karna...

step forward

Drop your weapon Arjun!

Arjun, I order you

to lower your weapon!

Karna don't you know that...

...true battles are fought between

equals, you're picking on a child!

I'm not a child!

I'm a trained warrior!

I can take care of myself!

There's a difference between training

and being able to fight!

You have a lot to learn.

I won't allow this nonsense

to continue...

...please call the tournament off,

your Highness!

Dhritarashtra realized that
