Ruby Shetty lives a wealthy lifestyle with her widowed dad, who would to travel to the deep jungles of India to find a fabled tribe in the Shakabhoomi region, where others have gone - but never returned. Ruby also decides to follow her dad, and meets up with him near the jungle's edge, where she is introduced to a man named D.K., who her dad like her to get married to. The following few days Ruby has a number of misadventures and is rescued by an ape-like man who is called Tarzan, and both fall in love with each other. Tarzan cannot speak any language but is intrigued by Ruby, much to the chagrin of D.K., whose task is to capture Tarzan and take him to work for Krishnakant Verma, who owns Apollo Circus. Before Tarzan and Ruby's romance could take wing, Tarzan is captured, chained and taken to the circus - where he may spend the rest of his days performing various acts, leaving D.K. free to get married to Ruby.

Outrageous nonsense, sexy Katkar. Better avoided
12 February 2009 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Yup, this one is as bad as it sounds. A remake of Tarzan in a Hindi film. Hemant Birje is the muscle-bound stud with nary an acting muscle in his body. He is matched in the non-acting department by the sexy Kimi Katkar. Admittedly, there are some nice scenes of these two rolling around and getting naughty in the jungle. However, the bulk of the film is atrocious with next to nil production values, jungle natives who seem to have stepped right out of the 1930s and a screenplay clearly written by a four year old. There is a little campy fun to be had, but its just too long to suffer through. Avoid.

Overall 2/10
