Junglee is an action film aimed at the masses with some well-directed stunt scenes, comedy and a little romance. The film is sprinkled with a social message at the end to make it more appealing to family audiences. Vijay's six pack abs and Andrita Ray's sensuous performance are the highlights of the film.
While almost every youngster wish to become a filmi hero, Shambulinga alias Junglee (Vijay) wants to make it big as a villain. Obviously, Junglee is less than good-looking and is not too well-educated either. Hence he wishes for the less refined role of a villain. Thus, Junglee arrives in town and tries different ways to get into films.
