Two tiger brothers who start life, one as a brazen, wild and fearless youngster who is protective of his sibling who is carefree, has an insatiable curiosity and always getting into trouble, and who is afraid of everything, including his own shadow. The father is killed protecting the family, the mother is later killed by a hunter, so the brothers never learn how to be tigers in the wild! As each brother is captured by hunters, their shared memories together fade as they will never to see each other again. The path each tiger takes throughout life changes them and reverses the roles. A gentle playful coward becomes fearless and learned, and the wild and brazen is tamed. Memories return as spirits are broken and as spirits soar. This movie is marvelous and a must see.
A few observations -
(1) Other reviewers noted that the movie was rife with animal abuse. I did not find this to be the case at all. It was true too it's rating and very PG. Most of the alleged abuse is implied (which is bad in itself) but I was glad that it was not depicted in film.
(2) While mankind does many things well, we are absolutely the worst at being stewards of the planet. I pray to the big guy in sky and sincerely hope that mankind will come around to doing more to preserve and protect this beautiful animal. The world will be so much worse without the "Lord of the Jungle" in it.
(3) In the 1940's there were 450,000 lions, today there are like 20,000. In 1910 there were 100,000 tigers, today 5000. These statistics are absolutely pathetic.
(4) Countries need to step up and make the trade in all things big cat illegal. Even here in the US, if we would declare some of these animals endangered it effectively stops the trade in these animals and make it a felony to trade in suffering.
A feel good movie for the entire family w a great happy ending. Be careful w young children in the first 15 minutes before the baby tigers come after the mother answers the love call of a male tiger and romance occurs behind the Indian ruins where they'll be born and the new dad will have to suffer their childish pranks chewing his tail.
