Story: In 1884, King Leopold II takes control of Congo. When his kingdom nears bankruptcy, the ruler's best soldier Rom is sent on a mission to capture the natives. He and a local chief strike a deal - diamonds in exchange of Tarzan (the boy of their forest) who has moved in with his wife after marriage. Rom kidnaps Jane and Tarzan will go to any extent to bring her back.
Review: For a story that is being told since early 1900s, a fresh rendition is pointless unless the makers have anything new to say. It probably is a risk taking up material that is so widely loved. Director David Yates, best known for the mystery and magic of the final four editions of the Harry Potter series, remoulds the titular character. His Tarzan journeys from messy wilderness to the prim insides of a gorgeous English manor. But, he must return to where he belongs and fix everything that has gone wrong in his side of the world. The unnecessary character of George Washington Williams, who researched vastly on Belgian Congo in late 1880s tells Tarzan about the brutal practice of slavery that is prevalent in his native place. To suit the screenplay, Tarzan's fiery wife slips into a damsel in distress role.

It isn't an origin story but the effective flashbacks do take us back to the ape man's past life. It tries to be a sequel and has enough inventiveness to qualify as one.The story shifts between too many sub plots but never loses sight of coherence.

Unlike this year's The Jungle Book which was visually fascinating, this one lacks the visual finesse but makes up for it with the palpable story. The action is done well and the earnestness of Alexander Skarsgard works.

Though one might feel that Yates fails to give his leading man any depth but he sure knows how to make him wear his brawny side in style. This Tarzan has swag and the film gives us an insight into his psyche. The only glitch is that though Tarzan is sincere, his classic roar comes tad too late in the film!
