Story

Jagga Jasoos is the story of Jagga (Ranbir Kapoor) who is an orphan from birth and lives in a hospital. A man with broken leg lands in the hospital and he adopts Jagga after which he takes to his place. However he mysteriously disappears from Jagga’s life after he admits him in a boarding school. The grown up Jagga helps cops in solving many interesting cases. Shruti (Katrina Kaif) is a school teacher who narrates Jagga’s stories to kids, The rest of the film is all about the relationship between Jagga and Shruti, how Jagga manages to find his adopted father. Watch Jagga Jasoos to know about the rest.

Jagga Jasoos is one film which has been impressive in each and every frame. Right from the start, Jagga Jasoos looks beautiful and presented well. However the movie looks dragged several times and the slow narration may not appeal to all the sections of the audience. However the brilliant performances along with the stupendous technical values makes Jagga Jasoos top notch. The perfect interval bang makes the first half engaging and entertaining.

The second half of the film too has been slow in pace and has strong emotional episodes. Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif make the film connect emotionally with the audience because of their loud and subtle performances. The emotional bonding between a father and his son has been portrayed well on screen. The climax has been thoroughly entertaining and on the whole, the second half of Jagga Jasoos looks decent but it will sure not appeal to all the sections of audiences.

Performance :

Ranbir Kapoor who is a brilliant actor and delivered out his best. He is a gem of an actor and he leads the race well with his exceptional performance throughout the movie. Jagga Jasoos can be watched for Ranbir Kapoor alone. Katrina Kaif delivered out her best with Jagga Jasoos and she has been perfect as a school teacher. Saswata Chatterjee as Professor Bagchi is excellent, Rajatava Chatterjee as police inspector and Saurabh Shukla as the antagonist are good. All other actors have been decent.

The story of Jagga Jasoos has been decent but it doesn't sound exceptional. The screenplay and the technical brilliance drives the film forward and makes it a treat for the audience. The dialogues have been impressive. The music and the background strikes hard. One should thank Ravi Varman for his stupendous cinematography. The production values have been stupendous and Anurag Basu makes no mistake except some dragged episodes and the slow pace.

Final Word

Jagga Jasoos takes you to a new world of emotional ride which has been lead by Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif. Anurag Basu makes it appealing with his power packed narration.

    Bareilly Ki Barfi Movie Review

    Bareilly Ki Barfi has been inspired from a French novel 'Ingredients of Love'. The movie has been adopted as per the nativity of Uttar Pradesh. The first half of Bareilly Ki Barfi has been entertaining however most of the episodes look dragged and some of them spotted unnecessary. The performances by the lead actors and the songs have been decent which makes the first half of Bareilly Ki Barfi passable. The second half of Bareilly Ki Barfi struggles as the director misses the major plot. Focused much on unwanted issues, the second half of Bareilly Ki Barfi is an utter disappointment. Once again, the lead actors top the show and it is the entertainment which makes the film sound decent at times. The climax looks simple and on the whole, the second half of Bareilly Ki Barfi fails to live up the expectations.

    Toilet: Ek Prem Katha Movie Review

    Toilet: Ek Prem Katha starts on a slow note as it takes enough time to reveal about the behavior of the characters. The first half of Toilet: Ek Prem Katha has been packed with hilarious entertainment which come along with the plot. Some of the songs have been forcefully injected into the plot however some of them have been shot well. On the whole, the first half of Toilet: Ek Prem Katha looks decent with packed entertainment. The second half of Toilet: Ek Prem Katha too has been interesting and reveals a strong social message. Some of the episodes have been dragged too much and the songs are huge barriers for the film. The film has many interesting episodes which strike hard about the problems faced by women across many villages of the country. On the whole the second half of Toilet: Ek Prem Katha has been ok which has been balanced with good and bad episodes throughout.

    Jab Harry Met Sejal Movie Review

    Jab Harry Met Sejal has many layers and some of them have been well narrated. The entire first half has been passable but it is the slow plot and some unwanted episodes that kill the film’s flavour completely. The songs look decent and they have been shot well. The quirky comedy and the narration makes the first half of Jab Harry Met Sejal passable. The second half of the movie looks dragged and some of the episodes have been hurried which are quite crucial. Shah Rukh Khan and Anushka Sharma have been extremely impressive in their roles. The locations and the cinematography are the major highlights of the second half. The climax has been shot well and impresses the audience. On the whole, the second half of Jab Harry Met Sejal disappoints.

    Mubarakan Movie Review

    Mubarakan is completely based on comedy and is a hilarious laugh riot right from the first frame. The story has been framed well and the songs have been placed and shot well. Anil Kapoor and Arjun Kapoor carried the film well and they are the major highlights of the movie. Their comic timing has been simply superb and the entire first half has been filled with loads of entertainment.The second half of Mubarakan too has been laced with enough entertainment however the film dips down at times. Some of the episodes look dragged and some of them have been hurried. The entire second half looks predictable and the climax has been simple, rushed. On the whole the entire second half has been ok.

    Indu Sarkar Movie Review

    Indu Sarkar has many interesting and realistic episodes and the film showcases the struggle of a woman. Each and every character has been well written and well presented. With an interesting twist, the first half convinces the audience and Madhur Bhandarkar works hard not to miss his mark. The dialouges are the major assets of the film. The second half of Indu Sarkar has been completely focussed on the struggle and Indu Sarkar may not appeal to all the sections of audience. However the gripping narration and the power packed performances lead the film completely. The pre-climax episodes heat up the film and the climax has been well presented. On the whole, Indu Sarkar has been decent but it may not appeal to all the sections of audience.

    Munna Michael Movie Review

    Munna Micheal starts on an interesting note however the film loses the grip. Most of the episodes look fake and the characters have not been written well. The songs and the performances by the lead actors have been impressive and lot of time has been wasted for the major plot to be unveiled. There is no strong purpose, but Munna shifts his base to Delhi suddenly. On the whole the first half of Munna Micheal has been below the average line and makes no impact.The second half of Munna Micheal has been completely half baked and it makes no sense. The performances by the lead actors has been completely impressive but the rest of the movie is a huge misfire. The songs have been shot well and Niddhi has been presented in a glamorous way. The second half looks confused and clumsy. The climax looks like everyone in the film along with the audience have been lost. On the whole, Munna Micheal is a complete misfire in all the available ways.
