As crazy as it sounds I was not able to recall anything from the movie “The Jungle Book” when I started watching it today. Of course, who could forget the immortal names like Mowgli, Baloo, Bagheera and Share Khan? but I was totally blank when it came to remembering the story line.

I don’t know if you remember the last story or not, but you have to see this movie. When I started I had a feeling that it would be boring since it was meant for children only but man I was so wrong! It kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time.

One of the best things about Hollywood’s animated movies is that they come with a strong message, but they don’t oversell the idea rather they subtly put it in the story and let the observer pick their favorite. For me, it was the moment when Mowgli accepted himself as human and stopped learning the ways of wolfs. Go watch the movie and let me know what message you liked the most.
