REEL DEAL: The Jungle Book REVIEW


I believe many of us have seen/heard/read about The Jungle Book which was one of the most loved stories. I was able to watch the cartoon and it did leave a mark on me about the jungle life, but this year I the experience of the jungles comes closer to reality with the live action adaptation of The Jungle Book.

This time the real look of animals and a real boy Mowgli, presents the story in a unique experience. We do know that they things becomes scarier in real life and that what the film shows. Though the story is still the same, interestingly the characters have built their own unique charisma.

The film was almost completely made from Computer graphics, with Mowgli (Neel Sethi) the only real person to act in the film. Though the voices behind them are impressive which gave them a sense of mystery and familiarity.

The thing I like about the movie is giving characters their own time to shine, powerful lines among the animals which shows humanity. And also the role of nature that unites everyone.


The Jungle Book stars Ben Kingsley, Bill Murray, Christopher Walken, Giancarlo Esposito, Idris Elba, Lupita Nyong'o, Neel Sethi, and Scarlett Johansson. Now showing in cinemas nationwide.


Deliberation time kids!
