Mowgli learns human language and some human ways quickly, though keeping jungle ideas. Influential Merchant Buldeo is bigoted against ‘beasts’ including Mowgli; not so Buldeo’s pretty daughter, whom Mowgli takes on a jungle tour where they find a treasure, setting the evil of human greed in motion.
Plot: Rudyard Kipling’s Jungle Book is given the full treatment in this lavish retelling filled with huge sets, exotic animals, a large cast and the incomparable Sabu, starring as Mowgli, the young orphan boy raised by wolves. Curious to reconnect with his human village, Mowgli returns only to find disappointment in the greed and treachery of man. Over time, Mowgli and the village members do grow to trust one another, but not before the village finds itself under siege. It’s up to Mowgli and his jungle friends to save the day.

Pretty amazing for 1942
This is a rather amazing production for 1942. The lavish sets, costumes and full-color are quite amazing for the time–especially considering it was made during one of the darkest years of WWII. So, instead of the typical black & white propaganda film, here we have pure escapism.

Now if you are looking for the Disney version of the Kipling story, you’ll no doubt be disappointed. Aside from names and a few plot elements, the story really bears little in common with the 1967 film. Unlike the cartoon, this film does address how Mowgli becomes stranded in the jungle as an infant plus about 80% of the film consists of Mowgli’s life AFTER returning to the village where he was born. And, also unlike the Disney film, humans are pretty greedy and awful in this film. In fact, instead of the tiger, Shere Khan, trying to kill Mowgli, the plot mostly has to do with a jungle treasure and the terrible lengths greed drives men to have it. By the end of the film, Mowgli is sick of the humans and their wicked ways–and leaves to live in his beloved jungle once again–quite the opposite of the Disney story.

Aside from very nice production values, there is a lot to admire about the film. The story is rather timeless and has some depth to it due to its examination of human nature. The only serious negative is the same negative you’d have with all adventure films of this era–no one in the film is actually Indian other than Sabu! Remember, this was the time of Charlie Chan (played originally by a Swede) and actors such as Errol Flynn and Katherine Hepburn playing Asians!! Here, such reliable Hollywood actors as John Qualen and Joseph Calleia play Indians! It’s all rather laughable, though perhaps it was tough finding Indian actors at the time (especially with India in the thick of things in the war). Still, it’s all very forgivable considering that it’s otherwise a quality production from start to finish.

The Korda’s do Kipling with skill…
A British lady is shopping in a marketplace when she happens upon a storyteller who is regaling his listeners with a tale of adventure: an infant “Mowgli” (Sabu) wanders off from his crib into the jungle; his parents seek him out but his father falls prey to the deadly tiger “Shere Khan” and in all the confusion the child is lost. He finds himself in a cave with wolves who treat him as one of their own and he is reared to young manhood as a child of the wilderness. His curiosity starts to get the better of him, however, and he is drawn to the village of people. When he dares to go in, he is captured and adopted by a lady who takes care of him much to the chagrin of local hunter “Buldeo” (Joseph Calleia) who bides his time until he can deal with this young man. “Mowgli” seeks to avenge himself on the tiger and so buys a “tooth” (knife) and sets off into the jungle for some hand-to-hand combat; he also discovers an huge treasure in an abandoned temple and the scene is set for his final battle with his greedy nemesis. This is the original live-action film: the use of real animals creates a wonderfully genuine effect; the colours are vivid and the story of compassion, love, avarice, treachery and recklessness is told in a wonderfully simple, yet engaging fashion. Sabu never was the best actor to grace our screens, but in this he is authentic and charming and the outdoor settings create the perfect backdrop for this super story.
