Ruby (Kimi Katkar) goes to the jungle looking for her father, Shetty
(Om Shivpuri), a scientist who has gone to the jungle looking for a lost
tribe. His guide is DK (Dalip Tahil), who has gone to the jungle looking
for Tarzan (Hemant Birje), whom he is to capture for display in a circus.
Basically, everyone gets what he or she wants, and that's where problems
start. Shetty hasn't taken into account that his lost tribe might be a bit
on the savage side, and thus they kill him, Ruby falls in love with
Tarzan, and the two start a romance - which also results in her opposing
DK's plans to bring him to civilization do be displayed in a circus. And
DK has the hots for Ruby ...
Ultimately, it seems that only DK gets what
he wants: He captures Tarzan and forces his will upon him by threatening
Ruby. And he makes Ruby submit to him by threatening to torture and kill
Tarzan. But of course, during Tarzan's premiere under the big top all
things don't go quite as planned for DK and he receives a sound beating
from Tarzan before grabbing Ruby as his hostage. But he hasn't taken into
account Tarzan's animal friends, who have made their way to town from the
jungle, and who now invade the circus.
Of course everything ends happily
for Tarzan and Ruby, and DK gets his just desserts.
most part, Adventures of Tarzan is just your typical Tarzan-film,
which was obviously made on a low budget and which brings nothing new to
the genre that hadn't already been a mainstay 50 or more years earlier.
But just when you're about to give up hope, the film actually comes to
life, as Tarzan's circus show is full of stunts, sadism, whippings, and
the animal invasion is rather well-handled. It's just too bad that the
imagination that fuelled the finale is nowhere to be found in the previous
2 hours or so ...
