And we just can't stop humming the tune...
From the time The Jungle Book's Hindi trailers have come, the most excited in my team has been me. Not just because the trailers are wow and the CGI is kickass and the Hindi dubbing is fantabulous. One of the biggest plus points of this Rudyard Kipling adaptation is the fact that it has a nostalgic value to it that will instantly connect with the audience. I as a child, literally grew up to Mowgli, Beauty and the Beast, Lady and the Tramp, 101 Dalmatians, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, etc. So needless to say, such movies quickly make headway in my heart. When I was seeing the trailer of the Hindi version of The Jungle Book, I was so enthralled by the voices of the actors that I was taken back in time.
From the trailer, one thing that I'm convinced about is that I'm going for both the English as well Hindi version of the film. The English one too has a star studded cast and so does the Hindi one. However, if you're still not convinced with the trailers that the movie might make it huge then this video will definitely change your mind. Remember, "Jungle jungle baat chali hai pata chala hai... chaddi pehen ke phool khila hai phool khila hai?" That song used to tickle my funnybones when I was a toddler but right now it holds a very strong nostalgic value as the song is sung in the same way as how it was originally made. Lucky for us, The Jungle Book team decided to recreate the song as well. So courtesy Gulzar and Vishal Bharadwaj for making this song, you'll instantly go down the memory lane.
The song is beautifully sung by Jia Wadkar, Yuvika Chaudhury, Abhirup Dass, Vatsala Mishra, Shaksham Karia, Rashi Salil Harmalkar, Avishkar Yogesh Khot and Oushnik Majumdar. The movie stars Priyanka Chopra, Irrfan Khan, Om Puri, Nana Patekar and Shefali Shah as v0iceover artists. Check out the song below and tell us what you think of it in the comments section below!
