Jagga Jasoos :Trailer Review

| July 5, 2017 | 0 Comments

One thing that hits you the most while watching the trailer of Jagga Jasoos.The whole color pallette is different from the regular candy floss spectrum of Bollywood potboilers. This one is rich and saturated.

The premise is no great shakes. There has been a death.Whether that death has been an act of suicide or a murder, our private investigator Jagga aka Ranbir Kapoor unravels.

On the sidelines, there has been disappearance of Jagga’s father.How his going missing is linked with the murder mystery is another track.

Though the movie seems to be heavily inspired by Jim Carrey’s Ace Ventura-Pet Detective, The Adventures of TinTin, and even North By North West, it still arouses curiosity as to what director Anuraag Basu has done by way of mixing, matching the ingredients. Has he been able to come out with some new,refreshing cocktail as a master blender, entices you to go and watch it.

Ranbir Kapoor is somewhat in his #Barfi mode-this time as a stammering guy, who can express himself effectively in a singsong manner.

What exactly is Katrina doing is not clear.As an accidental accomplice-cum-an-armcandy or someone with an ulterior agenda, is kept hanging.

Saurabh Shukla,with all his bulk to throw around is the guy with a mean streak.

Musically, no song sounds like a chartbuster, even galti-se-mistake-ho-gyi.

In the making for last four years,this is a delayed project due to falling out of Ranbir-Katrina.

Whether it suffered bottlenecks due to creative differences too, shall be clear once its released. So far the hard-to-suspend-disbelief scenario, laced with equally outlandish action sequences,peppered with some wry humour and coloured to saturation, holds promise as being off-the-beaten-track adventure.

Combo of Ranbir Kapoor,Katrina Kaif, Anurag Basu with a backing from Disney Studios is loaded with expectations and potential. Whether it’s truly so, let each of us wear a Detective’s hat and reveal the truth.
