Sensitive and action-filled
18 December 2008 | by (San Diego) – See all my reviews

This movie is great for kids and the whole family. It is a sensitive movie that illustrates the strong bond between animals and people (in this case the elephant).

It is not an action film, but has plenty of action. Filmed in location in India. The photography was very beautiful and you could tell that the director/writer was familiar with the countryside. The elephants came very close to the people and sometimes the star rode one of the elephants.

The group of thieves seemed authentic too especially the main thief. I can tell by the names listed that they used Indians for the Indian roles so it seemed like you were right there.
