One of Bollywood's first "Sheena" clones
9 October 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

After the 1984 release of ''Sheena'' with Tanya Roberts, Bollywood started cranking out countless knockoffs and Tarzan variants. Orphan girl Sheela grows up in the jungle with animal companions. She wears a leather two-piece outfit, swings on vines, and rides a horse painted with zebra stripes (as did Tanya Roberts). A fierce defender of the jungle, Sheela can beat up a dozen African natives at a time using mixed martial arts. The over-the-top fight scenes, including a great cat-fight, are in the style of ''Xena: Warrior Princess''.

Naturally this has the usual quota of annoying and/or hilarious musical numbers. The theme song, used for music-video type montages, is a strange hybrid of disco and electro-pop. Despite much silliness, disco-dancing, and dopey comic relief, this has a serious message. Sheela is horrified by museum displays of stuffed animals and skeletons and fights against the poaching industry. This makes it slightly better in quality, and less campy, than most of the other Sheena-inspired films (''Jungle Ki Beti'', for example, is a hoot). I watched this on YouTube without subtitles but there was little trouble following the story.
