Jumanji follows the lives of a bunch of people who accidentally find themselves caught inside a board game and is an endearing franchise made popular by the first film, starring late Robin Williams.

Speaking about the film, the Hindustan Times review said, “Hastily wrapped in Christmas colours and unenthusiastically conceived, Jumanji: The Next Level is more like a last-minute gift intended for a casual workplace acquaintance than a sequel to an almost billion-dollar hit.”
