The animals of a once protected reserve in India are being threatened by man’s development and destruction of their forest. Sultan the leopard fights a brave battle against the machines and saves his young cub Yuvi, but loses his life in the process. That night, a group of frightened animals gather to discuss their fate. Yuvi urges them not to give up their homes, saying this is not what his dad would have wanted. The hot headed militant monkey, Bajrangi, wants to declare a full scale war, but Bagga the bear has a more civilized suggestion. He believes that all problems could be sorted out through peaceful discussions. Saying the best way to get back to their homes is to have a dialog with the humans in parliament and win their hearts. But, they have a problem since animals can’t speak to humans. Then Air India, a pigeon with short term memory loss, remembers meeting a multi-lingual parrot who spoke the language of the humans. With hope in their hearts, Yuvi, Begum-Yuvi’s mom, Bajrangi, and Bagga set off on a safari to Delhi. But first, they must convince Alex, an obstinate talking parrot to leave his life of luxury in a gilded cage and join them on their trek as their spokesman. An exciting adventure ensues with the motley crew meeting many interesting characters along the way including a pair of performing flamingoes (Jason Alexander and Jane Lynch).

Limited Releases and Me

December 7th, 2012

It is a really, really busy week for limited releases. However, of the more than a dozen films on this week's list, only one of them is earning overwhelmingly positive reviews, Wagner and Me. That film is a documentary, so even if it does perform well during its opening weekend, it likely won't find any mainstream success. All of the rest are either earning too few reviews to have a Tomatometer Score, or have overall negative reviews. Combined with the previously released Awards Season hopefuls, and there's too much competition for such weak films. More...
