Let's save Bobby

VAT2019 N 171
SynopsisThis film is a fine blend of education, entertainment, and emotions. It displays the passion of an artist, the conviction of a conservationist, and the uncomplicated approach of a teacher-psychologist. Bobby the tiger cub promises to be the mascot of tiger conservation in the years to come. Deep inside a jungle in India, a tiger cub is born! Fathered by Bagha, the majestic territorial male, and reared by Ruby, the doting and fearless female, the jungle folk call him Bobby. With tigers under threat and facing the ominous future of extinction, the film takes children into Bobby’s world, in a joy-ride like manner. A different genre has been constructed by the director with the aim of drawing-in children towards the cause of conservation.
