Jagga Jasoos Movie review, Great acting but story couldn't hold the audience for 3 hr Movie



It is clear from the name that the film is about the story of Jagga Detective (Ranbir Kapoor). Purulia Arms Drop Case, which gave the sensation in the film in 1995, is also shown. Katrina Kaif is in the role of journalist Shruti who goes out for the story in search of illegal arms suppliers and she meets Jagga. Jagga's father (eternal chatergy) suddenly leaves her in school. Jagga gets a glimpse of his father in Shruti and he goes out in search of father with Shruti. After this some story comes out that shocked both of them. However, while watching, there is no suspense in the story of the film, it is already known that what is going to happen next.


Jagga Jasoos is the first of its kind that relies on rhyming dialogue set against defined music. The film relies on its visuals to send a message and uses the traditional form of dialogue in rarity.

Jagga Jasoos is the story of a boy detective who stammers and is taught by his foster father to convey his thoughts through singing and as soon as he discovers 'magic', his world changes dramatically and we become witness to a historical moment in Hindi films.

The genres of mainstream Bollywood are pretty limited. A spectacular story narrated in an awe-inspiring way is a rarity. The template for each genre, be it a love story or a comedy, is set in the minds of our film makers and every commercial film we end up watching in the theater is born out of the same canvas, with a few brush strokes done differently.

We talk about independent films pushing the envelope and mainstream films sticking to their safe route but Jagga Jasoos breaks those barriers, like they've never been broken before.

Jagga Jasoos is the story of a boy detective who stammers and is taught by his foster father to convey his thoughts through singing and as soon as he discovers 'magic', his world changes dramatically and we become witness to a historical moment in Hindi films.




Weakpoint: The film is very long and slow. In this, Katrina tells the story of Jagga one by one. While watching the film, it seems that it is only looking in pieces. Many times in the whole movie it seems that it is okay to end now.

The formulaic nature of our films have conditioned us to expect a certain kind of film when we see actors like Ranbir Kapoor & Katrina Kaif on the poster but Jagga Jasoos delivers a film that is an experiment that was worth conducting.
