Junglee Movie Review 3***


After a hiatus of 2 years, ranked no.6 in the top 10 martial artists,  Vidyut Jamwal is back with an actioner but this time directed by a Hollywood director Chuck Russel who is renowned for giving us The Mask, The Scorpion King and many more blockbusters in the western cinema. The director is also famous for giving a debutant actor their much needed sleeper hits with the very first movie. Though Vidyut is not making a debut here but many hollywood biggies are tempted to cast him in their next projects as they feel Vidyut is someone to watch out for.

Vidyut is a Veterinary physician (animal’s doctor) who runs his clinic in Mumbai. His father takes care of the Chandrika Sanctuary in Kerala. On the 10th death anniversary of Vidyut’s mother, he comes back to home but not all is well between him and his father due to some misunderstanding. When everything is falling into place the smugglers of tuskers hunts their beloved elephants and in the process kills his father too. How our lead stops them from doing their business forms the rest of the story. The chemistry between Vidyut and elephants is cute and one would feel the pain when the elephants are killed. Both Pooja Sawant and Asha Bhat makes a confident debut. Pooja is a known name in Marathi films but this her first hindi break. Akshay Oberoi gets less screen time but marks his presence. Atul Kulkarni is the head of smuggler, shines as usual. The action sequences are brilliantly executed, watch out the police station scene where our hero is handcuffed but his hand to hand combat is in one word wow.

The movie gives us the message that if everyone stops buying ivory products, this business will come to an end and we really should abide by this as the world is not for humans only, they are equal for all the other living creatures. All in all a good family entertainer, if you love the jungles, go for it.
