In short: A young boy befriends a boy of opposite cast and elephants. Together they stand against the poachers to secure the wildlife. Jojo is a loving urban kid who enjoys a casual reading to all kinds of books. He creates an imaginary friend Tobu and an elephants Notobar in his dreams. One day he visits his uncle in Baropahari in Arunachal Pradesh and gets fascinated with nature and the animals. He befriends a boy named Shibu, a rustic son of a mahout, who mostly grew up in the forest and an elephant Nonibal. Jojo learns about the beauty of forest and animals more closely as his friendship with Shibu ascend.

The undaunted trio then together pledges to stand against the poachers to save the environment and the wildlife.

Raj's effort in making the film
It is Raj's honest efforts in recreating wildlife scenarios as we heard and saw on television and comics as a kid. Raj has used high-octane music and the visuals in the movie are surely a treat for the kids.
Jashojeet Banerjee did justice to his role, the way he shows his excitement in the film is admirable. His moves as a heroic young boy willing to go extent for the right cause steals the show.
On the other hand, Samiul Alam, in most of the scenes will remind you of the character 'Mowgli' from the jungle book. He is valiant, a pure jungle boy, who knows his game. The friendship shown between the two little protagonists transcends the social class. Rudranil Ghosh, as the evil and cruel poacher, puts a more thrilling ride to the film. He has his mindset for killing animals especially Cheengiz, a tiger.
The unusual friendship between a city-bred boy and a boy who grew in the midst of nature bars the class discrimination. The film is a depiction of how beautiful a child's mind is in preserving nature and environment which as adults most of us ignore. The movie gives a remarkable social message that the world is not only for mankind, but is for all the other living beings and especially nature.
