A childhood classic revisited with fabulous CGI technique that makes the jungle come alive in IMAX 3D. John Favreau casts a spell once again with his interpretation of what really happened when man cub brought the red flower to the jungle.

With the Jungle Book, Favreau and his technical team have given us the best possible narrative cinema using today's cutting edge technology. It is a hugely entertaining film with a nod to the 1967 classic, but yet very different in mood and texture.

Jon Favreau's zippy reboot of the Mowgli stories is anything but another bland attempt to mine a timeless favourite. The Jungle Book is a classic genre film that harnesses the inherent strengths of the source material to rustle up a captivating drama that is both epic and intimate.

The Jungle Book Review RatingSaibal Chatterjee (Ndtv) | Read Full Review

No offence to its only human cast member - red underpants are a timeless look - but the real star of Disney's new adaptation of The Jungle Book is a computer-generated talking tiger. The film could have easily passed muster as a dry technical showcase, but Favreau gives it real analogue earth-under-the-fingernails charm.

The Jungle Book, for most Indians, is a whiff of nostalgia. Jon Favreau's feature-length adaptation of the Rudyard Kipling classic serves that purpose pretty well. The Jungle Book mostly succeeds in delivering what it promised: Mowgli and his squad, in live-action.

The Jungle Book Review RatingAnanya Bhattacharya (India Today) | Read Full Review

Not only is Favreau's The Jungle Book a stunning visual spectacle but also a surprisingly intelligent, nuanced and at times genuinely scary movie that holds your attention and just never lets go.

The film is great but the CGI is even greater. Neel Sethi's Mowgli may be the only living, breathing entity in this live action-CGI stew but you would consider Bagheera, Baloo, Shere Khan and party equally real by the time the show's over.

The Jungle Book Review RatingJyoti Sharma Bawa (Hindustan Times) | Read Full Review

Maintaining the buoyant heartbeat beneath all the digital flash, Favreau never loses sight of the fact that he's making an adventure story for children.This "Jungle Book" certainly imposes a bit more of a strict hero's-journey framework onto the source materials, yet rarely does it lapse into the sort of po-faced seriousness that tends to sour so many aggressively modernized fairy stories.

What makes The Jungle Book enduring in our collective consciousness is that it is an outlet to our eternal fantasy to live in the wild. The film, painted in mystical shades, succeeds in invoking this deep, primal core present in all of us.
