Note: This description comes from Netflix.
Motu and Patlu want to help a circus lion get back to the jungle. On the way, the three become caught up in an exciting adventure in the forest.
The movie begins in a circus. The ringmaster of the circus announces the arrival of a "poet from Misaj, who only eats vegetarian food". The ringmaster then introduces Guddu Ghalib, a vegetarian lion. Guddu then comes on to the stage riding a unicycle, juggling carrots and radishes, and singing "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star". Above the stage, two rats are seen fighting over cheese.
The ringmaster announces that Guddu will be jumping over a ring of fire. Guddu successfully jumps over the ring and continues cycling, much to the delight of the crowd. Guddu thanks the crowd as the rats continue fighting over the cheese. One of the rats trip and falls on Guddu's nose, which scares Guddu.
Guddu and the rat start running away from each other and Guddu slams onto the pole with the ring of fire. The ring of fire falls over and starts a fire in the circus, causing chaos within the audience. Guddu also sees the fire and uses his unicycle to escape. Guddu manages to leave the circus and is forced to run from three stray dogs. Guddu notices a car with an open trunk and jumps onto it. The car and its passengers are revealed to be going to Furfuri Nagar.
The car reaches its destination, Furfuri Nagar. Guddu leaves the car and starts exploring Furfuri Nagar. He sees some kids and comes to greet them, however, the kids run away from Guddu and start running away from him. Guddu is also worried and also starts running from the lion. The residents of Furfuri Nagar start running away from Guddu. Guddu realizes that the people are afraid of him and starts to willingly scare and chase the residents. Chingum tries to stop the lion but is too ridden with fear. Chingum calls Motu and Patlu, only for them to inform him that they are already running away from the lion.
After running away from the lion several times, Motu notices Guddu's circus skills and assumes that Guddu is a person trying to scare people. Motu tries to tickle Guddu and remove his "costume" only to realize that Guddu is an actual lion. As Motu and Patlu escape, Motu finds some samosas and starts eating them. Motu then starts to fight the lion. Motu manages to utilize some sticks to trap Guddu.
The scene cuts to Guddu being inside an actual cage, crying. Dr. Jhatka appears with an invention called the "Animal Language Translation Gadget" to help Motu and his friends understand Guddu. Guddu introduces himself to Motu and Patlu and asks them to take him to the jungle. Motu opens the cage to give Guddu a high-five, which Guddu does. Patlu realizes that Guddu wouldn't be able to survive in the jungle due to him not knowing how to hunt. Chingum then informs Patlu of a national park where Guddu can stay. Guddu agrees to go to the National Park and the journey to the National Park commences.
The scene cuts to some animals in the jungle. A fawn named Heeru, a foal, and a bunny are seen playing together. Suddenly, many trucks enter the scene. The hunters on the trucks start throwing nets at many of the animals to capture them. Heeru's mother ends up getting captured. Heeru manages to escape the ordeal along with many other animals. The animals go to their king, King Singa to inform him of the ordeal. King Singa then confronts the hunters and then starts attacking them, along with the other animals. As the animals are about to subdue the hunters, a helicopter comes along and releases a net to capture King Singa. The man inside the helicopter, Narasimha exits the helicopter and informs the King that "they meet again". A lady, Monica steps off the plane, shooing away mosquitos. Narasimha reveals that he had tried to hunt for gold the year before, only to be scared away by the King. Narasimha having captured the king, states that he would be able to gain the gold in the jungle.
The scene cuts to nighttime at Motu and Patlu's campsite. Guddu informs Motu that he does not want to go to the National Park, but stay in the jungle. Motu tries to convince Guddu otherwise only to see a glowing object. Motu follows this object and sees that it is a bird. Many similar birds fly around as well.
The scene cuts to the next day, at Narasimha's campsite. Narasimha teases King Singa and compliments the fear in the other captured animal's eyes. Narasimha starts to proclaim about how he shall destroy the jungle and be its king, which anger King Singa. King Singa escapes from his net and is about to confront Narasimha, only to see that the cage with the other captured animals is about to fall over the ledge. King Singa manages to free the captured animals just as the cage falls over the ledge. The other animals start to ambush Narasimha and his group. Narasimha and his group try to escape by helicopter, but the animals manage to push it off. Narasimha and his group manage to escape the animals by car.
The scene cuts to Motu's camp. Guddu is seen thinking about how to escape the cage. Guddu decides to play dead. This makes Motu cry and Motu goes to inform everyone, but accidentally leaves the door open, allowing Guddu to escape. Motu and friends try to chase after Guddu and one of Narasimha's henchmen, Aplu sees this and informs Narasimha that he will try to bring Motu and friends to him.

find King Singa, and Motu runs towards him, mistaking him to be Guddu. Motu tries to do his dance with King Singa, which further angers him. Motu and King Singa get into a fight. Guddu notices this and compliments the fight and Patlu realizes that Motu is fighting the wrong lion. After being informed of this, Motu starts to confront King Singa for his supposed "evil actions". As Motu and King Singa fight, King Singa tells Motu that Narasimha is a "demon disguised as a human" and tells Motu of his plans. Motu realizes that he and his friends were tricked. However, Narasimha who was watching this confrontation starts throwing missiles around. One of the missiles hit a ledge, with the young animals standing on it. The ledge starts to fall and King Singa and Motu go on the ledge to save the animals. This is successful, but a tree falls on King Singa, trapping him. Motu tries to lift the tree but to no avail. King Singa accepts his fate and asks Motu to protect all the animals from Narasimha. The ledge breaks at this point and Patlu grabs a vine and jumps
of the cliff to save Motu. Patlu manages to grab Motu and save him. A vengeful Motu promises the now-deceased King that he would defeat Narasimha.
Narasimha observes all this from a distance in his vehicle, laughing and rejoicing over the death of the king.
