I grew up listening to the track ‘Jungle jungle baat chali hai pata chala hai ‘ and it was the most exciting part of my Sunday :).
Mowgli, Bagheera, Baloo, Raksha, Shere Khan were all eternal part of my memory. each and every episode of Jungle Book was as exciting as it could get. As soon as I saw the theatrical poster of The Jungle Book I decided that I have to watch it on the big screen. My favorite characters coming live on big screen and in 3-D :D…. what more could a fan girl could ask for !!.
I was following the updates regularly to know the cast and crew of the film and could not hold my excitement to watch the movie. Finally the movie was released and was running full house in all the multiplexes and a friend of mine watched and told “You must watch the movie to get the feel of it. Everything about it is amazing!!!”.
It was then I decided to go and watch it no matter which show it is. It was a Saturday morning show with my buddy. I was filled with child-like excitement :). The opening scene with Mowgli on big screen was enough to get me glued to the screen till the end.
Moments when Mowgli was attacked by Shere Khan and Mowgli getting trapped to Kaa made me jump out of the seat!!
The cruel Shere Khan, oh so seducing coice of Kaa, the always cheerful Baloo, Mowgli , Mr.dependable Bhageera, Raksha, King Louis and many more characters were done to perfection, right from the visuals til the voice overs…. everything about Jungle Book was just so so perfect.
The 2 hours were the best 2hours I spent on a movie reminiscing my childhood and came out of the multiplex with a wide and happy smile :):).
As Baloo say
Look for the bare necessities
The simple bare necessities
Forget about your worries and your strife
I mean the bare necessities
Old Mother Nature’s recipes
That brings the bare necessities of life
