Parasurama, the valiant warrior sage, is the sixth avatar or manifestation of Lord Vishnu. He lived through the lives of the avatars Rama, Balarama, Krishna, and Kalki, the last of whom he was destined to mentor. He was also teacher to Bhishma, Drona and Karna, who were the greatest champions of the famous epic, Mahabharatha. Parasurama was a man of principles who stood by his beliefs despite facing some of the toughest decisions any mortal could make. He was also the fiercest among the human avatars.
Parasu – The Story of an Ultimate Warrior follows some of Parasurama’s trials and tribulations, exploring his struggle of having to choose between duty and righteousness and the limits of the anger that had built up inside him over centuries.
Performed in Tamil with English surtitles.
