Jumbo, the latest animated movie, is actually based on the story Chao Praya Prah Hongsawadee by Ariya Jintapanichkarn that highlights the adventurous tale of a baby elephant Jaiveer or Jumbo. The sweet and innocent baby elephant wishes to follow the footsteps of Yudhveer, his missing father along with becoming a royal elephant of the Kingdom.
In simple terms, the movie keeps the kids in good and entertaining company. But Jumbo by Percept may not be as brilliant and exciting like Hanuman, the very first movie in India that opened the gates of animation. Still it can be said that Jumbo is better than the other amateur attempts that came across after Hanuman’s success.
The famous star Akshay Kumar is seen serving the voice of the fiery and boisterous baby elephant Jumbo. Also, Ram Sampath, the controversial musical figure is the person behind the movie’s musical structure. As a baby elephant, Jumbo faces taunts from other elephants as he does not have his father with him. Naturally, Jumbo is curious regarding his father and so he decides to go on for a searching mission to get his father back. On his journey, he is totally befriended by some stunningly beautiful elephant cow. Then Jumbo is then taken to a palace where he sees his mother and gets encouragement from her.
He tries to come out of his chains and in this struggle, he meets a huge war elephant that was mainly responsible for Jumbo’s father’s death. At this point, Jumbo gets the opportunity to get Kingdom’s glory and take due revenge from the culprit. The movie is filled with typical aspects of emotions, revenge, romance and action. Apart from Akshay Kumar, Gulshan Grover, Rajpal Yadav and Dimple Kapadia infuse great life in the animated characters as well.
As far as the commercial substance and success of the movie is concerned, it is a good animated one. All in all, Jumbo is a sincere, simple and sweet movie that is gaining great reviews and acceptance from the kids, its main and targeted audience.
