Aishwarya Rai Bachchan,
The film was announced in 2013, and started to shoot in 2014 with a tentative release date of November 2015. However by 2015, only ten days had been shot. The film was delayed due to many reasons, notably the breakup of the then romantically involved lead actors. Ranbir Kapoor also took time to film Bombay Velvet (2015). Additionally, Anurag Basu revealed that after making Barfi! (2012), he wanted to spend time with his family. The film was delayed for so long, that Ranbir Kapoor considered shelving it. See more »
Acting by Ranbir Kapoor , Saurabh Shukla,Saswata Chatterjee and even Katrina Kaif(who seemed to give her career best performance, not that she had set the bar very high).The cinematography is outstanding.The entire concept of making a full fledged musical.The songs are a treat to the ears. The music by Pritam is good(Not sure if it is original).
Jagga Jasoos has an engaging first that manages to peak your interest towards both the content and the presentation. However, it is in the second half that the narrative loses a little steam. At the end, Jagga Jasoos is about a boy's search for his missing father-like figure. Perhaps I was expecting a lot more from it despite being aware of what the core plot was and the lack of any real mystery seems to have been a turn off for me.
However, the end of the movie left me asking for more. Much more. But based on the kind of movies that we Indians are used to , I don't expect Jagga Jasoos to be a commercial hit and consequently, don't see there to be any valid reason why the producers should opt for a potentially engaging sequel.
This movie is a one-time must watch, in the theaters. Such movies need to be encouraged. Jagga Jasoos may not be the perfect movie, but it is a bold move in the right direction.
