Always destined to be second or take the "Second Turn" - "Randam Oozham" in Malayalam - which incidentally gives the novel its title to his weak elder brother Yudhishtira in seniority and younger brother Arjuna in fame and popularity, Bhima is not given his due as the main architect of the Pandava victory over their cousins Kauravas in the Kurukshetra war.

This work stands like a colossus on the shores of Malayalam Literature. The worlds knows Bheema of the Mahabharatha as a beast of war, the elder brother was a paragon of virtue and the casanova-esque thrid brother was a super star all over.
Bheema was treated as a bozo who lumbers around with a club bashing up the brains of the Kauravas in TV and in books. How many of them saw Bheema the father? The son? The Husband? It took an MT to look beyond the stereotypical labels and bring out the human being in Bheema.
Randamoozham for those uninitiated in malayalam, this means "the second round" is by far one of the best literary works I have had the pleasure of reading. Based on the Mahabharatha, it tells the entire epic from the viewpoint of Bheema. Bheema is a most unlikely protagonist in the sense that nothing but his brawn sets him apart. Once when asked about his inspiration for such a work MT replied that the pregnant pauses placed by Vyasa in the Mahabharatha made him think of such a work. In one instance the warrior code of the Kshatriyas state that it is the warrior who kills the maximum of the enemies is the one entitled for the crown.
If such was the case, Bheema would have been the king but it is his brother who ends up becoming one. The most manipulative of ladies in literature Draupadi dances him to her whims and Bheema ends up accepting the fact that she played him along all the way. The most powerful of scenes is the one where Krishna walks into the army camp after the death of Bheema's half-demon son in battle, seeing the camp in sorrow Krishna proclaims " good that he died of Karna's hand else it should have been my hand some day".
Quite natural for a King to say about a demon but he said this within earshot of the father who stood looking at the body of his slain offspring. This was from the mouth of a man who lectured his friend on the fact that the soul was just a sort of dress for the human body. A few days after this, Krishna is beyond grief when his own nephew is slain in battle, this is one of those acute observations the author makes in te pages.
MT gives the tale a human touch withouth adding any of the mythos or making any character less human than what it actually could have been. Just one of those works which is beyond the realm of literature for me. View all 17 comments. Nov 29, Thomas George rated it it was amazing Shelves: View all 6 comments.
Jun 02, Akshay Joy rated it it was amazing Shelves: Jul 10, Sandeep rated it it was amazing. Whenever I see this book sitting in my mother's bookshelf, I pick this up and read it once. In the past five years I have read this at least five times. This is a timeless classic, a totally different rendition of a story we have all heard, the Mahabharata. MT Vasudevan Nair has chosen Bheema as the protagonist of this book.
The entire Mahabharata is narrated as a historical tale than a story of Gods, Demons and the superhuman , in the first person, from Bheema's perspective. About his joys, he Whenever I see this book sitting in my mother's bookshelf, I pick this up and read it once. About his joys, heartbreaks, frustrations as he is unable to digest the uncompromising expectations out of a Kshatriya and about his vengeance. Not a single book I have ever read has been able to make me empathize with and own the feelings of it protagonist ever, when compared to this book.
Bheema's thought processes behind the most arrogant statements he made, the pain he went through at every rejection and his feelings of not being able to accept the woman he first loved - MT manages to handhold you through all of those emotions.
I can confidently say, this is the best book I have ever read, in any language. View all 3 comments. Oct 31, Aju Krishnan rated it it was amazing.
I think this is the simplest way Mahabharatha has been ever told. Narrating the story from Bhima's point of view, MT stripped off the divine powers from the characters and presented them as mortal human beings with emotions.
So you don't get to see Krishna supplying an infinitely long sari to save Draupadi or King Jarasandha's body rejoining and coming back to life whichever way Bhima tries to tear him into two. But you can see Bhima being jealous of Arjuna for being Draupadi's favourite among t I think this is the simplest way Mahabharatha has been ever told.
But you can see Bhima being jealous of Arjuna for being Draupadi's favourite among the five brothers as well as Arjuna mocking Karna for being of lower caste to satisfy his superiority complex.
To an extent the Pandavas become mere puppets in the hands of Kunthi and Draupadi. While Kunthi commands them as their mother, Draupadi lures them with their next chance to live with her.
The last few pages reveal some shocking facts about the Pandavas' parenthood. MT explains that he read different versions of the story written over different periods and found that divine powers granted to the characters were mostly imaginations of the story tellers.
A very good transformation of the epic Mahabharata. A different view at the classic taking out the supernatural element was a pleasant surprise. The book takes readers through the Mahabharatha as narrated by the Second Pandava, the strongest of them all, Bhimasena. Bhima comes alive in front of us as a mere Human, and exposes the human side of all the characters in the epic.
The narration was quite pacey, and you cannot get yours hands off the book unless it had finished. Hat's off to Mr. Vasude A very good transformation of the epic Mahabharata.
Vasudevan for the commendable work. Throws light on many unknown aspects of Bhima's character. MT Vasudevan Nair has researched the Mahabharatha in detail and brings out nugets of information seamlessly woven into the narrative Interestingly, this book was written 30 to 40 years before the author Amish Tripathi like successfully attempted retelling the Hindu Gods.
Anybody who is interested in Mahabharata should make this a 'must' read; and people who are interested in a good story should also enjoy this book.

T wouldn't or couldn't include something without proper research. I must admit that the language was quite easy considering the epic proportions of the content involved..
No wonder many people swear by it. Dec 13, Sarath Krishnan added it. There are so many interpretations and translations on Mahabharatha and Ramayana world wide. Every new translation adds something to the original story. This particular novel foregrounds the Mahabharatha story from the point of view of the 'real hero', Bhima. There is nothing unusual in looking into that epic from that angle. In fact, it is not the first time that one literary work has been subjected to reinterpret or renarrate from the point of view of some other characters from the same novel.
Examples are the novel which comes out based Bertha Mason's experience who was a minor charecter in Jane Eyre. Such events are common in literary world. But the thing is that MT is dared enough to discard the divinely figures in Mahabharath; Krishna is just a clever king who knows good diplomacy and wants the help of Pandavas to kill Jarasandha. Similar way, none of the five Pandavas are the heirs of gods!
This would be the only thing I could find different in this novel from other narratives. This one offers an interesting take. The entire Mahabharata is narrated by Bhima. It is curious how the author has interpreted the feelings of Bhima as he is shown to live in the shadows of Arjuna.
I also like it that the character is shown to be unburdened by thinking and lives an almost instinctive life. It is also interesting how the author weaves in narratives around lesser known characters like Hidimbi. Top notch book for me! If there's one thing I've realised after reading M. Vasudevan Nair's Randamoozham English translation by Gita Krishnankutty is that there is no one interpretation of the Mahabharata. There have been numerous re-tellings so far, from the PoV of so many characters and yet, every time I read it I come away with a different feeling and a different understanding of the characters.
Like MT says in the Epilogue, the credit goes to the original author, Sage Vyasa - not just for what he said, but also If there's one thing I've realised after reading M. Like MT says in the Epilogue, the credit goes to the original author, Sage Vyasa - not just for what he said, but also for what he didn't.
The 'silences he maintained' in some parts were the places that future authors could interpret in their own way. And I can see now how it is that the same story can be told in so many different ways and still not sound repetitive. If anything, it only makes me want to read more versions of it.
Like all books translated from a language I know Tamil, Telugu, Hindi or Malayalam , this one also started off with me feeling I'm getting a raw deal, to not be reading the original. But once I did that, I enjoyed the book immensely. The translator has done some justice to the work, without losing out too much of the poetry that would've been MT's Malayalam version.
Bhima is a strange choice for a protagonist. The popular retellings do not pay too much attention to him - he's overshadowed by Arjuna in terms of prowess and Yudhishtira with his claim to the throne. This is probably why Bhima's PoV is a bit refreshing from the usual stories we read. Yudhishtira is shown in a completely different light and to an extent, so is Draupadi.
But the surprising part was the portrayal of Krishna. MT has stripped off all traces of divinity from this retelling. Everyone is human. Krishna, included. There is no flowing saree covering Draupadi's shame during her disrobing by Dussasana. During the war, Krishna does not use his discus to block the sun, to bring Jarasandha out in the open. Not just that, Karna is not depicted with any permanent kavacha-kundalam. So the book comes off as a regular narrative, stripped off it's divine and fantastical connotations.
I guess this is what makes it a unique read, compared to the other versions of Mahabharatha. I really would've loved to read this in Malayalam - maybe when the husband is in a good mood, I can coax him into reading out the good parts!
Planning to read Prem Panicker's translation soon. Sep 29, Shine Sebastian rated it it was amazing Shelves: Just wow!! Aug 17, Priyanka rated it it was amazing Shelves: Hats off to this genuis. Such a brave attempt it is to tell the entire story from a purely human prespective and that too from a very less acclaimed hero in mahabharata, the Bhima.
MT has portrayed the entire story unbiased from the so called superhuman abilities and morale that we are used to hearing right from our childhood about the characters in Maha Hats off to this genuis. MT has portrayed the entire story unbiased from the so called superhuman abilities and morale that we are used to hearing right from our childhood about the characters in Mahabharata. When you remove the halo effect of those biases then you observe the characters with curiousity as you would analyse any human behaviour.
The book has a note towards the end that explains the research the author did in writing this.
It clearly shows how detailed the author went into analysing certain situations which are unexplained in the epic. It proves that the Bhima in randamoozham was never a pure imaginative creation from MT. If the entire Mahabharata were to be written in this way, may be we would have had a different version all together! Sep 21, Vijay Prince rated it it was amazing.
Every time I read a well written version of the Mahabharata, I respect the original epic even more. How many works can lay claim to so many renditions centuries after the original version? As for this version, what does it say of an author when he can mesmerise the reader with a story that one has been hearing since childhood? As the title suggests, Bhima is the protagonist and the story is told from his perspective.
