Story Details

Raj Nayar (Vidyut Jammwal), a veterinary doctor from Mumbai, visits his father after a long gap of ten years in their Chandrika elephant sanctuary (Odisha). Soon after, a ghastly attack on the elephants by a bunch of poachers, led by (Atul Kulkarni), changes his life forever.

 Initially lured by the city life, Raj now decides to protect the gentle giants in the sanctuary, which has always been his father’s dream. After a series of unfortunate events that happen in the reserve, Meera (debutante Asha Bhat), a journalist from Mumbai and Shankara (debutante Pooja Sawant), a mahout based in the sanctuary, also join Raj’s mission of punishing the illegal hunters, who kill elephants for ivory.

Protect animals, save the elephants is the primary message that Junglee sends across and it does so in an action-packed way. The film also reiterates that if we pledge to stop buying ivory products, it will prevent poachers from indulging in this illegal trade. True to its theme, the film transports you to the calm of a jungle, away from your city, cell phones and chaos (shot in the beautiful locales of an elephant reserve in Thailand).

Others Comment:
Actor Vidyut Jammwal, the rare exception who can match Tiger Shroff on the action front is flawless as far as the action in Junglee is concerned. Unfortunately, this film devotes an endless amount of time establishing the hero as a child of the forest with multiple close-ups and action shots--Jammwal’s forte. By the time the story starts moving we are already bored by all the muscle-mania and the Tarzan-like moments. Atul Kulkarni, one of the finest actors of our times is completely wasted in this film, as is Akshay Oberoi. The confident newcomers Asha Bhat and Pooja Sawant make the best of their sidekick roles but sadly the script offers them very little.
