The Jungle Book review

For Indians in the 90s, the song 'Jungle Jungle pata chala hai' was one of the most sweetest memory of their amazing childhood. (Yes, the kinds Y-gen would never have :p) The amazing animated cartoon that made us run from the playgrounds to sit in front of the TV before the titles concluded. The nostalgia of those times have given a great advantage to the new "Jungle Book', live-action movie by Jon Favreau. Now, my nostalgia has another story to it.

The very first English movie that I saw ever, in a then-posh A/c movie theatre called 'Sreedhar' on the Marine Drive in Kochi was....make a guess.....the 1994 'Jungle Book'. And how much I loved it then. (Surprised to know just recently, that the main lady lead in that movie was our Evil Queen Cersei, Lena Headey.) Remember that it was the first English movie, I saw in a theatre, and for those days the standards of that movie was very high. Real animals, great action scenes, good vfx. How much I was change…
