In the past years, Hindi film industry has developed a lot by experimenting with different genres of movies. Directors of Hindi film industry have crossed their barriers to come up with new and fresh ideas. Similarly, a talented director, Anurag Basu has come up with a great plot, which is a musical genre movie with an adventure saga.

Jagga Jasoos          
It’s an adventure genre movie starring Ranbir Kapoor as Jagga and Katrina Kaif as Shruti. The adventurous roller coaster ride of the duo will leave you flabbergasted. 

This is the second movie of Anurag Basu with Ranbir kapoor after Barfi. Considering their excellent chemistry in Barfi, the expectation went higher, but this time Anurag Basu seems to have failed to live up to the expectation. Where on one hand people are talking about Katrina Kaif’s acting was not up to the mark, on the other hand, Ranbir’s performed his role with conviction, where he played the character of a stammer.

This musical adventurous movie is a must watch if you are a fan of comic fiction movies. If you are looking for relaxing and light-hearted movie then you should watch Jagga Jasoos with your family and friends.

The film starts how Shruti, a journalist, tells stories to children from a comic book which is based on Jagga’s life. The story revolves around Jagga’s life where Tuti-Futi (played by Saswata Chatterjee), a father figure took the orphan Jagga along with him but later left him in a hostel. Every year Jagga on his birthday, used to wait for Tuti-Futi’s video.
The young mind of Jagga was sharp enough to solve mystery cases. One year when Jagga didn’t receive the birthday video tape from Tuti-Futi, he goes on a quest to search for him. Along the journey joined Shruti who was once saved by Jagga. Using his detective skills, Jagga uncovers the truth about Tuti-Futi that leaves everyone surprised.
Anurag Basu createsan intelligent plot wherein he shows Jagga communicating with people through singing as he has a problem of stammering. In the entire film you can expect one thing, that is, you won’t get bored. The fantasy film with the adventure saga will leave you asking for more.
Movie Review

Different critics have given different types of rating to this film. Come let’s know what some of the famous critics think about this movie.

Rajeev Masand – CNN NEWS18

According to Rajeev, Jagga Jasoos was a father-son centric film that seems getting drifted away somewhere in the Tintin-like adventure. Among all this, one good thing happened, that is Ranbir Kapoor’s acting. After Ajab Prem Ki Gazab Kahani, this is the second time where Ranbir pulled off a brilliant comic performance. Katrina also pulled off quite well but most of the work she let Ranbir do it.

Rajeev rates this film 2/5 as he expected more from this movie.

Rohit Vats from Hindustan Times

He believes Jagga Jasoos is one of the best cinematic film created in recent months. The film will make you dive into the adventurous world from where you wouldn’t want to come out. Anurag Basu has directed the film very beautifully; even Ranbir Kapoor didn’t drop a single emotion. During the second half of the film, you come across the multidimensional plot of the story. Jagga Jasoos was an undeniable experiment when it comes to music.

Music Review
