Barely captured the attention of my li'il one for a few minutes - beat that!!!
To cash on the popularity of newly discovered animated movies in India and the rising popularity of Akshay Kumar, Khan Kluay/ The Blue Elephant is viewed as a cash cow. What a con game!!!
At least "Hum Hain Laajawab" was clean enough to claim it was The Incredibles. But Jumbo is a big farce and I am happy it ended up the well-deserved tanking at the box office.
With regards to the story, it simply fails to connect with the children. A simple linear story could have been identifiable with kids, but the story starts off on a wrong note. Even my son felt disenchanted within 30-minutes. As for me, the movie seemed to be a rehash of Lion King.
Waste of effort to get names like Akshay Kumar, Lara Dutta, Dimple Kapadia, Gulshan Grover, Asrani, Rajpal Yadav into this failed miserable venture.
