The trailer for the upcoming movie Jungle Cry from Lionsgate Play is out. It is based on the true story of several disadvantaged tribal boys trying their luck at the International Junior Rugby Tournament led by coach Rudraksh Jena (Abhay Deol), Paul Walsh (Stewart Wright) and Professor Achyuta Samanta (Atul Kumar), founder of Bhubaneswar’s Kalinga Institute of Social Sciences (KISS).
The more than two-minute trailer begins with Abhay’s Rudraksh convincing several boys from the tribe to sign up for a school where they will be provided with free accommodation and food. While Rudraksh wants the boys to form a football team, the new coach Paul wants to teach them rugby and take them to an international tournament. From the trailer, a sports drama with an interesting plot and a talented cast looks captivating.
Jungle Cry’s official synopsis reads: “Based on the inspiring true story of 12 disadvantaged and orphans from the Kalinga Institute in Orissa, India. “Jungle Cry” follows the journey of 12 disadvantaged children who won the prestigious Under-14 Rugby World Cup in England. “
Jungle Cry is directed by Sagar Ballary. The film also includes portraits of Referee Nigel Owens, Phil Bennett and Colin Charvis, former captain of Wales, Wales and the British Lions.
Abhay Deol said he had constant respect for the children who won the World Cup and the coaches who never gave up. When asked about the film, he said: “In a country of cricket, where there is almost no noise about rugby, 12 small children from rural India have made history. I hope that with this film, which defines that nothing is impossible, I appreciated the devotion of the players and their devotion to this sport and the country. We are thrilled to be able to bring ‘Jungle Cry’ to the audience and share with them the paths of these heroes who have made history in India – but have never been talked about. “
Jungle Cry will begin streaming on Lionsgate Play on June 3.
