The movie is definitely going to be larger than life! Read on...
The Jungle Book has been buzzing all over social media ever since they shared the first trailer. While the English trailers were released last year itself, the Hindi dubbed version sure has caught a lot of attention. Thanks to the star studded cast that includes, Irrfan Khan, Priyanka Chopra, Om Puri, Shefali Shah and Nana Patekar, the film has garnered a new wave of excitement. From the time the film's trailer came out to the famous Jungle Jungle Baat Chali Hai song that surfaced last week, I have constantly been hooked to the film. If the film were a guy, it would've accused me of stalking, that's for sure. The trailers have been so gripping and the wonderful soundtrack that UTV released last week, they have captivated me.
So when a day ago, I got a message from my boss, asking me to go for this exclusive sneak peek screening that was held today, my heart skipped a beat instantly! Yeah, I totally sound like a girl in love but this nostalgia feeling that The Jungle Book brought along with it is the cause. As I went for the screening today, I was talking to this one person, who shared the same amount of enthusiasm as me for the film. And then came that moment when they screened the sneak peek. The video clip of seven minutes showed how Baloo the bear met Mowgli. So Mowgli was unconscious for reasons unbeknownst but he opened his eyes and found himself staring straight at Baloo's nose that curiously sniffed him. Next thing you know, Baloo gives Mowgli a small errand to run, rather a tough one. He asks Mowgli to climb up a mountain and get some honey combs.
Poor chap, Mowgli does as he is told and falls prey to several bee stings while Baloo fools him into it. But the duo end up swimming across a shallow river bed as they sing a very cute duet. During their fun voyage Bagheera makes an entrance seeking for Mowgli. Bagheera wants to take Mowgli to the human village safe and sound but the human cub sure has plans of hibernation with Baloo. However, Bagheera states that bears don't hibernate in jungles (true that!) and Baloo being Baloo swiftly takes the ball in his court by saying that if not hibernation, he does enjoy the occasional naps. And that's when they ended the screening for us. Now, I as an ardent fan of classic stories and of course, Jungle Book, couldn't help but get to you readers and disclose my experience. One thing that's for sure about this movie is that it is every bit larger than life and that it's gonna bring mixed emotions in everyone's hearts who watch the film. In fact, this screening has made my wait more excruciating for 8th of April!
