Jagga Jasoos is an upcoming 2017 Indian musical adventure romantic comedy film written and directed by Anurag Basu, and produced by Basu and Ranbir Kapoor. The film features Ranbir Kapoor, Katrina Kaif and Adah Sharma in lead roles, and tells the story of a teenage detective in search of his missing father. This movie will have around twenty songs says the director. The film is scheduled to be released on 14 July 2017
Jagga Jasoos is a musical of sorts. Umm…what we mean is Ranbir Kapoor’s Jagga is more comfortable singing his way through conversations. He actually has a stammer and has a lot of difficulty completing his sentences. Remember how the first trailer was all just set against a capella?
This one too begins like that, only to be explained later by Ranbir urf Jagga: “Mere words so-so nikalte hai. Islie gaake bolta hoon. So that thoda smooth ho jaye.” There’s a delightful surprise in the form of actor Saswata Chatterjee as Professor Bagchi who appeared to have abandoned his son Jagga in a hostel. “6 months, 7 days and 8 hours” turned into a never-ending wait urging Jagga to put out his mystery solving ‘antenna’ (check out his hairstyle for reference).
Enters Katrina Kaif as Jagga’s accomplice, better known as Jughead, and together they smell murder. What follows is a series of dangerous adventures, glimpses of which are thrown at quick successions, making it look like a movie watched in fast-forward mode. There’s some gun battle, plane crashing, running on train roofs, scooter rides and a lot of hazardous events, none of which fail to stop Jagga Jasoos. PS: Don’t expect Katrina Kaif to speak much.
Meanwhile, the overall feel of the trailer is that of Barfi! (also directed by Anurag Basu and shot in Darjeeling) and Saswata Chatterjee in particular of Bob Biswas (rings a bell?).
