Bal Ganesh is an animated movie with 3D characters that revolve around the adventures of the elephant headed Lord Ganesha. Ganesha is born to Mata Parvati while she is having bath. She uses the turmeric she used to have bath with, to make a small kids statue and blesses life to it and names it Ganesh. He asks him to guard the door as she goes to bath. He doesn't let any one go in, not even his father Lord Shiva. Shiva gets angry and beheads Ganesh using His trishul. But Parvati requests Shiva to bring Lord Ganesha to life. Shiva does the same, but only by giving the body an elephant's head. Lord Brahma, Vishnu, Laxmi everyone blesses Lord Ganesha and he gets a lot of power, power of knowledge, power of intelligence, etc. and from there on start his various enjoyable adventure along with his companion Mooshak, a rat. The adorable pair enjoy every moment of life by stealing Modak (A special type of sweet liked by Lord Ganesh), making fun of Lord Shiva's soldiers Nandi Bail and other Ganas. Later on he gets another adorable brother Kartikeya, who is smart, powerful and brave. Both along with respecting their father, have fun also by fighting with the evils like Supketan, Tadkeshwar etc. And all these are told in the movie through a lovely mouse's narration.
