There are varied versions of the story of Ganesha but the animated film is largely based on Shiva Purana. His creation by divine Mother Parvathy; his heroic death at the hands of his own father, Lord Shiva, in a fierce battle; his re-birth with the head of an elephant; all these go to make a fascinating story, especially for children.
The Moon God who makes fun of the uncommon figure of Ganesha comes under the curse of the Lord. Devotees are forbidden from beholding the Moon on GaneshaChaturthu the Lord's Birthday.
To mitigate the evil effects of witnessing the Moon on the Festival Day, devotees recite 'Shamantopakhyana' which is again full of fun.
