Ambitious and admirable, flawed and inconsistent
15 July 2017 | by user-897-810721See all my reviews

Let me put this out there - this movie is inconsistent, to the point that you can easily spot technical inconsistencies in the editing, narrative, etc. Let me also put this out there - I have never seen a Bollywood film as ambitious as this one. Bollywood usually gives us a certain kind of cinema - romance, drama, tragedy and exaggerated action are the common ingredients. And so, I expected the same from Jagga Jasoos, with added music of course. And what did I get? Adventure. Pure adventure. The plot could be written in one line - a clever boy with a stutter seeks to find his missing father. That is all there is. But the treatment is incredible! This is a genius - who goes by the name of Anurag Basu - letting his imagination run wild. He loses the plot, often loses his grip, and eventually serves a half-baked dish. But then again, a half- baked dish by Basu is better than a lot of the other movies Bollywood has to offer. Jagga Jasoos is poetry without a message; it has little meaning to offer, but it flows beautifully. Let me also put this out there - if you subscribe to Salman Khan school of Bollywood (no judgements here, just a disclaimer), avoid the movie. You will never find a movie so diametrically opposite to the likes of Kick and Jai Ho. That said, the movie has several issues that are overshadowed by two brilliant performers. The first is Saswata Chatterjee. It is a pity that little is known about him (this is only the second time I have seen him in a film). Every second that he spends on screen tugs the viewer's heart. And the second - no prizes for guessing - is Ranbir Kapoor. I am yet to see a star who can take as many risks and act as well. I look forward to watching him excel in a movie with a better-developed script. Give Jagga Jasoos a shot if you can. It might try your patience, but there is always something to marvel at when it plays out in front of you. Hopefully, if the producers feel secure enough, we will get a movie without as many faults as this one. A Jagga Jasoos 2.
