On a Friday morning when you see parents accompanying their kids to a nearby cinema hall, you immediately realise a children’s film has released. The Jungle Book saw a mad rush with parents thronging theatres with their tiny tots to watch Disney’s latest offering. And they were not left a wee bit disappointed.

At Gaiety Galaxy in Mumbai, which was playing the Hindi version of the movie, we saw smiling faces exiting theatres. Viewers loved each and every single frame of the movie. They were all praises for Neel Sethi, the child actor who played Mowgli and found the animal characters especially Bagheera super cute.

What thrilled one and all to bits were some never-before-seen special effects. A parent even regretted the fact that there were no such effects in the era that he was born and cited that kids today are lucky to experience such visually appealing effects. Audience also praised the voices lent by Priyanka Chopra, On Puri and Nana Patekar that made the anime characters come to life.
With Disney running both English and Hindi versions in theatres, Jungle Book looks all set to rake in massive moolah in the days to come.
