Release date of Ramayana: The Legend of Prince Rama



Ramayana: The Legend of Prince Rama

Today I wanted to give some clarification on the release date of this movie. It is posted as 1992 all over the internet but that is not true. The misunderstanding comes from the fact that at the beginning of the movie it is shown as a program commemorating the 40th anniversary of India-Japan diplomatic relations from 1952 which makes it as 1992.
There is very little info on the internet so I did some digging and found that the movie was still in production in 1992: http://designinindia.net/design-thoughts/masters/ram-mohan/interview-ramayana-meers-sara.html

"From 1992 to 1994 and we completed it." - Ram Mohan

Then I found out that it was released in 1994 in some countries though not in the US as the article states (It was released in the US as The Prince of Light: the Legend of Ramayana in 2001).

After some deep searching I finally found out when it was released in India in 1996 and in Japan in 1998: http://www.eiga-kawaraban.com/98/98043001.html

So these are the correct dates not 1992 as preached all over the internet.

Edit: 1992 can also be correct as the movie finished production in december of 1992 but still it is not a release date for the General public.


I also found Hindi song composer while I was at it:
