Story:
Ranbir Kapoor plays Jagga, a gifted teenage detective, who is on a quest to find his missing father. Since his childhood, he has been told that his father expired in a car crash but he doesn’t believe them. Therefore, he starts his journey to find his father.

Jagga is accompanied by a journalist named Shruti (Katrina Kaif,) who follows him throughout his journey. Jagga and Shruti eventually fall in love while on their mission. Importantly, to be noted, Jagga has the habit of stammering since his birth and in order to overcome this, he sings. The movie has nearly 30 songs in total, while some songs are situation based some are just for fun.

A year ago, there were speculations Jagga Jasoos had been adapted from Ranbir Kapoor’s previous film Barfi. But after watching the film, we changed our minds!

Will Jagga be able to find his missing father? Will he express his feelings to his lady love? Will Ranbir and Katrina recreate the magic of their Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani? Well, to know all this, you must watch the film.

Movie Review:
After making us wait for three years, Jagga Jassos hit the screens today and this is the one which is worth watching after a long wait. This film seems like one of those musicals for which Bollywood was eagerly waiting. Music director, Pritam, with his extraordinary skills did a tremendous job. The film is told mostly through songs. Actually, it is a compilation of multiple stories that build up to make Ranbir’s character.

Well, like Barfi, this will surely remain in your subconscious for a long time. But, thankfully, Anurag Basu added some fresh flavors and gave a new feel to Jagga Jasoos.

Cinematographer Ravi Varman will surely make you glide through this fairy tale. Most of the film was shot in Thailand, Morocco and Darjeeling, hence giving us a feel of a fantasy land.
On the whole, the pair make the journey worth taking.

What’s Good:

  • Background music by Pritam will surely you hold you back.
  • Visually fresh and awesome performance by Ranbir Kapoor
  • Will be liked by children and the young at heart.

What’s Bad:

  • 162 minute duration will be little distracting, but never mind! Pritam’s music will compensate and drive your boredom away!

Final Verdict: Everybody should go and watch Jagga Jasoos! At least for the sake of Disney, the production company of Jagga Jasoos which stood by this film during their testing time.
