REVIEW

Bollywood is not known for good musical movies but Jagga Jasoos breaks this trend. The movie goes on in a dreamlike environment and it seems like we are watching a fairy tale. Ranbir Kapoor slips into the character of a stammering teenager who has out of the box deduction skills without any effort. He is such a wonderful actor.

Most of the story in the movie is narrated through songs. While watching the movie we felt like we were floating in a world of dreams that we are not used to in Bollywood. It was a serene experience. The movie takes inspiration from many other movies but the good part is that all these combine together to give us a fresh look (at least for Hindi movie audience).

The synchronized movements on screen make the movie so good and Anurag Basu has used it very well.

The songs play a major role in the movie and thankfully they relate to the movie (unlike those item numbers which sometimes are irritating). The songs are already quite popular and some scenes just take our breath away.

The background adds life to the movie. The movie is shot in the beautiful locations in Thailand, Darjeeling, and Morocco. They give the feeling that the characters in the movie actually live in a world of dreams. It’s so beautiful to watch and you will literally want to go to these places.

Katrina Kaif has done really well as an outspoken journalist who is full of life. Saurabh Shukla leads the supporting cast which plays a vital role in the plot. They all come together and make the journey of Jagga Jasoos worth watching.

OUR TAKE

The movie is beautifully made and everything in the movie from story to the acting is free flowing. Jagga Jasoos is worth your time and will not regret watching it.
