Storyline

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.

Mowgli on acid.....
12 May 2006 | by (Fairfax, VA) – See all my reviews

This right mess of a film only conjures up Mowgli on acid, not Tarzan. It seems to be greatly influenced by the next worst Tarzan film which starred Bo Derek. Other unauthorized versions such as those made in Spain with Steve Hawkes or Richard Yestaran come off much better than this one. Mr. Birje, though looking pretty good, has little to do but act as a prop for Ms. Kimi's posing and silly inappropriate production numbers until the last half hour of the film. The pacing drags tediously with the few action sequences shot in slo-mo making them devoid of interest to match the rest of the tedium until the grand finale. I don't know which of the main characters dropped the most acid, but they all seem bizarre, especially Kimi as "Rubi" (don't take your love to town) who spends most of her time screeching like Olive Oyl or singing goofy ditties to Tarzan even including "Do-Re-Mi" from the Sound of Music. Even the jungle is weird since its denizens include both wild Indian tigers and African lions. The snake that bites "Rubi" is a cobra, so the lion would seem a bit de trop. The (welcome) finale is almost worth sitting through the first 3/4 of the film which would be greatly improved by aggressive cutting. And yes, Ms. Kimi certainly does win the wet shirt contest, hands down. But if the producers wanted to "ape" a Tarzan film they should have paid more attention to the Barker and Scott films for models.
