Jungle Book is here once again but this time with more fun and enthralling adventures in it. It is the best ever reconstruction of Rudyard Kipling’s classic tale, Jungle Book. I know the story is same but its direction and use of latest technology, the CGI photorealistic animals has made it just amazing.
The Jungle Book was my favourite cartoon when I was young. Seeing Mowgli, Bagheera, Baloo, Rakha in such a realistic avatars completely thrills me and makes me nostalgic. It spot on created an illusion as if you are there in the jungle with all the characters.
