Junglee is a cinematic feature helmed by American filmmaker Chuck Russell starring Vidyut Jammwal. Chuck Russell, who has given us films like Jim Carrey's The Mask and Dwayne Johnson's The Scorpion King, didn't bring anything surprising in his Bollywood directorial debut.
Presented by Junglee Pictures, the film stars Atul Kulkarni and debutantes Pooja Sawant and Asha Bhatt. This one hour and fifty-five minutes action-drama boasts a social message on preserving jungles and elepants. Read on to know the full review of Junglee!
Junglee | Storyline
Junglee is a story about Raj Nair (Vidyut Jammwal) who is a vet by profession. After ten long years, Raj who is now living in Mumbai, visits his father’s elephant reserve. There, he reunites with his childhood friends including Bhola, the elephant. After reaching Chandrika elephant sanctuary, he comes to know about the international poachers racket and fights them to save his elephants.
Junglee | Star Performances
Enraptured by Vidyut Jammwal's past acting performances in films like Force and Cammando, Junglee only highlights the actor in his action scenes. Credited to weak character sketch of Vidyut as Raj, the actor didn't have much scope to perform but is undoubtedly charming while performing his power-packed stunts.
Atul Kulkarni as Keshav is playing antagonist in the film. Again, one of the most brilliant actors we have in Bollywood, Atul was less convincing in this one just like our Hero. Debutante Pooja Sawant as Shankara impressed us with her acting skills, but Asha Bhat's character as Meera who is a journalist in the film actually looks silly.
Junglee | Verdict
Following a plainly written screenplay, the only redeeming feature of this film is Vidyut Jammwal's jaw-dropping action sequences. Watch Junglee if you are a part of Vidyut's fan club, or love action films. You can also plan to enjoy this film over the weekend with your kids as they'll like it more than you do for its bright colours and a social message on preserving jungles and elephants.
