Adventures of Tarzan is a Hindi-language action film released in 1985, directed by Babbar Subhash. The movie stars Kimi Katkar as the titular character, Tarzan who was very popular in the comics of the time. The movie is based on Edgar Rice Burroughs's classic fictional character Tarzan, but with a Bollywood twist. The story is set in the deep, dark jungles of Africa which is where Tarzan resides with his parents. His parents get killed by a ferocious animal and Tarzan is subsequently adopted by a tribe of apes. The movie follows Tarzan's life living with the apes and his transformation into a skilled fighter, living in the heart of the jungle.

Tarzan's life changes when he meets Ruby, played by Kimi Katkar, an explorer searching for a rare diamond that was once in Tarzan's father's possession. She is captured by a gang, but Tarzan comes to her rescue. Together, they embark on a dangerous journey to retrieve the diamond and reach their destination. The journey is filled with numerous obstacles, deadly traps, fierce battles with animal predators and much more. The quest is not an easy one, but with Tarzan's strength, agility, and quick reflexes, they make their way through, facing all sorts of dangers and wild creatures on their path.

At the heart of this movie is the romantic angle between Tarzan and Ruby. The chemistry between the two protagonists is quite interesting and forms a crucial component of the movie's narrative. Their interactions are light-hearted and playful, and their love story is an integral part of the movie. Their romance is portrayed through lovely song sequences, adding a touch of Bollywood drama to the otherwise gritty narrative.

The action scenes in the Adventures of Tarzan are the biggest highlight of this movie. Tarzan's battles against wild animals and brutal gangsters are intense, thrilling, and excellently choreographed. These scenes are further enhanced by the outstanding background score, which is melodious, and adds to the overall tension and excitement of the movie. The stunning camera work in the dense jungles of Africa heightens the movie experience, making the viewer feel as if they are a part of this wild and dangerous world.

The performances by the lead actors are commendable as well. Kimi Katkar brings Ruby's character to life with a mixture of strength and vulnerability. Her character is more than a mere damsel-in-distress, and she gives a nuanced performance. Dalip Tahil and Om Shivpuri give solid performances as villains, who make the viewer loathe their existence. Tarzan is played by newcomer Hemant Birje. While he doesn't entirely fit the bill of an African native, he is believable as Tarzan. His physique, agility, and effortless screen presence bring the character to life.

One of the most striking aspects of Adventures of Tarzan is its use of exotic locations. The movie was shot in actual African jungles and this aspect truly shines through. The filmmakers also used plenty of special effects to create an animal kingdom and make it seem like Tarzan is living amid real wild animals. This effect was quite impressive considering the time the movie was made in.

The music in the movie is also good, especially the song 'O Saathiya O Beliya', which became a rage at the time of the movie's release. It is still remembered fondly by fans of the movie and considered a classic.

Overall, the Adventures of Tarzan is an enjoyable movie that is sure to keep the viewer on the edge of their seats. With its gripping story, breathtaking visuals, and compelling performances, it is one of the best adaptations of Edgar Rice Burroughs's classic story. It marks a perfect blend of Hollywood action & Bollywood emotion making for a fascinating ride. For a hearty entertainment value, this movie should not be missed.

Adventures of Tarzan is a 1985 adventure movie with a runtime of 2 hours and 15 minutes. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 4.5.
