It’s finally here! Our favorite animated series, our favorite Rudyard Kipling book, our favorite song ‘jungle jungle baat chali hai pata chala hai’ and our favorite character Mowgli got rebooted and has finally hit the theaters as The Jungle Book. There is less sunshine and more darkness in this one, yes its dark, but its an adventure from start to finish and it leaves a major impact! It makes us cry and it leaves us scared, but it touches the inner core of our heart and evokes our deep buried fantasy for wild.

Movie Review: The Jungle Book
The Jungle Book follows the same beat and it expands on it. You see minor differences in the movie but on the whole its the same story that we used to read and watch when we were kids.
The Jungle Book is a rare thing. While the kids find it an exhilarating adventure, the adults who accompany their kids question over life, belongings, courage, friendship and a lot more. The Jungle Book is a visual treat, its a magical experience, an enchanting nostalgic ride, that’s the level of art of this movie. There are scenes that will put you on the edge of your seats and there are characters that will leave you teary eyed. You almost forget that all the characters in the movie were made on a computer. Director Jon Favreau and his team of technicians deserves a huge applause for this.
Its the work of CGI that’s done brilliantly in the movie and so far this is the best computer generated film. Each and every character looks so real, you believe you’re actually in a jungle. The first few minutes of the movie sets up the pace and you are welcomed to a dangerous jungle. The real looking animals are backed by briliant voice actors, Sir Ben Kingsley as Bageera, Bill Murray as Baloo, Idris Elba as Shere Khan, Scarlette Johanson as Kaa, Lupita Nyonge as Raksha are the highlights of the Jungle.

Not to forget the life of the movie, Neel Sethi as Mowgli. The child actor plays the part of Mowgli effortlessly as if not acting, but actually living the life of Mowgli. He convincingly carries this epic tale on his shoulders and we are surprised by the immense talent of this 12 year old boy. The climax is full of suspense and in the end we are left with re imagining the fantasy that we just lived. The Jungle Book evokes our fantasy of how it would feel to live in the wild, the visuals are so realistic, that it succeeds.
Don’t miss this epic saga at any cost! MAKE THIS YOUR WEEKEND WATCH. 😀
