Rajendra Kumar and B Subhash took morning walks on the beach together and when the latter had first confided in the star his plans of making 'Tarzan', Rajendra Kumar had admonished him, wondering why after two big hits he had chosen such a "C-grade subject". B Subhash assured him that he would turn this "C-Grade subject" into an "A-class film". "And after its release Rajendra Kumar admitted that B Subash kept my word. See more »

Somewhat Entertaining, somewhat a Drag!
21 March 2009 | by See all my reviews

Apart from the last half an hour of the film,where Tarzan was dragged to the circus, overall the film was Entertaining. Song videos were shot at good locations but the songs itself seemed to have been prepared at the last minute, not catchy at all. They were worst. As required Tarzan character played dumb throughout. Some realistic grunts and animal sounds could have been added if properly directed. In all Tarzan films chimps played an important role but there was no interaction with them here. Only elephants seemed to be leading. Lions and tigers appearing only in songs and last half hour and again no interaction with Tarzan. Kimi suited her role but the first half hour of Kimi's appearance was definitely unsuitable for family audience and more aiming towards some low class audience. Actor Hermant fitted into his 'Tarzan' character perfectly more than any other actor could have both looks and physique wise. His script and acting could have been more productive.
