The Universal Circus is closed down because its animals have grown very old and they are considered unfit to bear the strain of circus plays. The boss decides to fetch young and fresh animals from jungle with help of Kazaan, who was and has always helped him in this task in the past. He therefore leaves with his party for Jungle. On the other hand in the jungle kazaan is dead but is succeeded by his only son who is the king and the protector of the wild animals and the beasts. The said party now reaches jungle and their all hopes end in smoke when the young and fearless kazaan refuses flatly to give them the required assistance.

Ketty the daughter of the boss takes fancy to handsome and daring kazaan and kazaan too cannot resist her beauty so they both fall in love, which naturally compels kazaan to yield to their this approach and demand.

Mr. John (the circus manager) becomes jealous of this romance and he often attempts to harm kazaan but fails every time. At last he finds an alternative to let kazaan down by stealing his mother's valuables and jewellery.

The illusion of ketty's love makes kazaan ignorance and careless about everything when he learns that his mother's belongings have been stolen he becomes furious but helplessly cannot do anything as the circus party has left the jungle prior to its knowledge. He now makes a vow to get the belongings and he leaves for city in quest of love & lust.

How kazaan manages to get to the town?

How he gets back the valuables?

How he takes revenge from John?

How he succeeds in his love with ketty?

All this you will witness in Butt kadah's maiden offering "JUNGLE BOY".
