Storyline

Chandrashekhar (Shammi Kapoor) or Shekhar as he is called now, belongs to an aristrocratic family, who believe laughter is a sign of belonging to the lower class, and as a result laughter is not encouraged in the household, run by Shekhar's domineering mom (Lalita Pawar). In this household the only one who dares to laugh and enjoy life is Shekhar's sister Mala (Shashikala), who also dares to love Jeevan (Anoop Kumar). Things change when their mom finds out about Mala's indiscretions, and she asks Shekhar to take her away from their home, to distant and scenic Kashmir, for awhile. She also instructs Shekhar to arrange to get married to a girl from a princely family. When Shekhar escorts Mala out of town, and on reaching Kashmir, he meets up with beautiful Rajkumari (Saira Banoo), and after being stranded with her for a night during a snowstorm, he realizes what he has been missing, and becomes a care-free man in love. This change is welcomed by Mala, but not by his mother. To make ... Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

excellent
22 September 1999 | by (London, england) – See all my reviews

Junglee has got a good storyline and it all starts off with Shekhar (Shammi kapoor) coming back from abroad after some years of business and is and has been a serious man all his life they're trying to tell us and has absolutely no laughter in his life whatsoever and has a sister, Mala who laughs secretly with her boyfriend, Jeevan but later she goes to Kashmir as a punishment because someone has exposed her secret but she doesn't know that they know.

In Kashmir Mala and Shekhar reach safely and one day Mala gets some bad news. With Shekhar he's just wondering off in his own world and meets a girl,Rajkumari and somehow later on in the film she gets them caught up in a storm and Shekhar goes back to his sister and comes back from the storm happy and laughing. everyone is gobsmacked of course and he and rajkumari admit their love to each other and say they're going to get married and say their goodbyes.

on their way home Shekhar's mum is angry for him laughing and being a maniac. later on in the film a knot forms because Shekhar's mum has arranged his marriage to a real Rajkumari and so the knot becomes more tightened and tightened. this film is good for shammi kapoor's comedy and over all it deserves a 10/10
