Watch the film in theaters!
Vidyut Jamwal proved that he is a good action hero. His heroics are excellent and he grabs the attention of the audiences. Asha Bhat and Pooja Sawant did justice to their roles. Makarand Deshpande and Akshay Oberoi need a special mention.
The makers have a good intention to save wildlife and the resultant is Junglee. The film comes with the right message. The film is not only action based but performance too. We didn’t get these kinds of films for the past four decades in Bollywood. This film has a strong message and it is, if we stop buying ivory goods, then automatically, the elephant hunting will be stopped. Although the director is an American, he is passionate towards the Mantras, the martial arts in India and the worship of elephants in the form of Lord Ganesh. The cinematography and the BGM are fantastic. The action choreographer should definitely be appreciated for his fantastic action sequences performed by Vidyut.
What’s Not There?
Junglee is a great show off by Vidyut and team to save the wildlife. This film will attract not only the action lovers but the kids who love to watch animals. Junglee is a rare attempt in Bollywood that attracts all class audiences.
