Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle | Netflix | An enjoyable take on the childhood classic

I am still wondering why Netflix did not choose to release it in the big screen. 

Andy Serkis version of Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle (Jungle Book)
might have been the millionth take on the legendary tale by Rudyard Kipling but it still surprised me with the an engaging 90 minutes. Big names such as Chritian Bale, Kate Blanchett, Benedict Cumberbatch and Andy Serkis did justice to their roles with perfect voices while young
Rohan Chand  gave a compelling performance as the title character. 

This is not the sweet, funny Jungle book from the Disney version but a darker and more engaging version that tries to combine a lot of stories from the Jungle Book cartoon series immortalized by Disney. The visuals and BGM are also top notch.

I would recommend this to anyone who grew up watching Jungle book on the Telly. It’s a different, yet entertaining take on the classic.
