The plot of Tarzan Goes to India is a simple one but unfortunately also a rather tepid and boring one. Tarzan (Jock Mahoney) is called to India by the dying Maharajah (Murad) and is informed by Princess Kamara (Simi Garewal) that about three hundred elephants are endangered by the construction of a hydroelectric dam. Once the dam is completed, and the other end of the valley is sealed off, all of the elephants will drown. Having Tarzan being an ecological warrior is certainly nothing new and as some of his best friends are elephants this is certainly something close to his heart but as plots go “Must get elephants out of valley before dam is built” isn’t all that thrilling, and hey maybe it could have been made to be thrilling but they certainly fail to do it here.
“I’m sorry Tarzan, no shoes, no shirt, no service.”
He’s a rogue elephant who doesn’t play by the rules.
“I’ll be your stock cartoon villain today.”
Ironic deaths are big in the jungle.
“Don’t worry Tarzan; I Rikki-Tikki-Tavi will save you.”
“Anybody tells Jane about this day I’m having and I’ll feed them to the lions.”
Or maybe he can just go hang out with Mowgli instead.
“Rogue Leader to Rogue Five, come in Rogue Five!“
“Take that, Duke Boys!”
