The Jungle Book | The Corny Movie Review by Navin

The Jungle Book
The Jungle Book is a like a good trek on a virgin trail - It has lots of adventure and you end up taking away memories for life. 
For most Indians (and some westerners), the movie is on familiar ground and brings back fond memories of our childhood. It touches that sweet spot in our hearts with a heady cocktail of adventure and animation. 

Without giving away the plot, I'll tell you the movie is built around the story of a young boy who was raised by pack of wolves, The Jungle Book skillfully tells a tale that Rudyard Kipling wove centuries ago. 
There is a certain Indianness to this movie that makes it endearing and breathtaking at the same time. Where this movie excels is the storyline, which is crisp and persuasive and the casting is spot on. With this movie, Jon Favreau sets himself firmly in the league of incredible movie-makers. 

Would I recommend it? Definitely. Disney's The Jungle Book is a cinematic experience (like The life of Pi and Avatar) that you must watch in every mesmerizing detail at an IMAX 3D theater. Anything else would be an unpardonable sin to this incredible movie. 

My Rating: 9.5

What does the rating mean?
0-4  : Not worth your presence in the same zip code as the TV/Theater.
5-7  : Err... the movie is pretty, but it's definitely missing something. A storyline, that is.
8-10: 'Drop-the-dishes, stop-the-sex, jaw-dropping, that-is-incredible' 2 hours of movie experience
