Vidyut Jammwal's Junglee will release in theatres tomorrow, March 29 and the film is being much anticipated. And there are more than one reasons for the same. For one, it is Vidyut - martial arts expert, as the lead, which means all the martial arts enthusiasts are looking forward to some authentic actions sequences. Then there is the master director Chuck Russel, you has a fan following of his own at the international level and audience is anticipating some polished action direction. Then is the wild life element, which is rarely seen in Bollywood, which mostly comes up with pure action, thriller, comedy or romantic movies. And even if animals are included in the comedy ones, they are just a fun element where there potential is not explored to the fullest. So, now you know why Junglee is so special for Bollywood. And while we are at the press screening of this film, here's a quick review until we give you the full verdit.
Have a look at the trailer if you haven't seen it yet:
All our excitement about Junglee is partly because it is directed by Chuck Russell, the man who has given us iconic films like The Mask and The Scorpion King. In this wildlife drama, Raj (Vidyut Jammwal) works as a top vet in Mumbai while his dad runs an elephant sanctuary. The relations between the father-son duo are strained after his mom's death. While he has been away, his beloved sanctuary is under threat from poachers hunting for elephant tusks. What is stunning are the shots of the forests and the beautiful elephants. The makers have captured the beasts in all their glory. Whether it is an early morning shot or one of the twilight, it just looks great. We have not seen any great fight sequences so far so it is a kind of a dampener. Atul Kulkarni looks efficienctly evil as the head poacher. Pooja Sawant is quite good as Shankhu. The film is a bit of a drag but we are now headed for the action.
Let's see what unravels in the film next. Stay tuned to this space for the full review and meanwhile, read other gossip on Junglee that BollywoodLife has shared with you. Tweet to us your reactions @bollywood_life.
