Ranbir-Katrina are like two stars in this first-ever magical and musical galaxy in Bollywood
Let’s just take a pause and hail Ranbir for not only his talent, but his idea of experimentation, his zeal to take risks and the gift he delivers us with cuteness-overloaded films.
We still aren’t over with the sweetness from Barfi, and here we are, not in a film but in a land of magic, colors, and joy.
But only if the script wasn’t so down sliding, this film would have created wonders.
But let’s applaud the makers for trying something completely out of the box in Bollywood.

Read Detail Review
Produced by Ranbir’s production company (Picture Shuru Productions) in collaboration with director Anurag Basu, UTV and Disney, the film has a fell any Disney movie would have and that’s one of the most lovable parts in the film.
Alekh (Story) – Patkatha (Screenplay)
If you are hearing all or some negative things about the film, the reason is the script. But just take our words, if La La Land was such a great hit worldwide (which we don’t get why), then Jagga Jasoos certainly falls in the league of ‘do watch’ films.
Of course, everyone has variable taste, and we shouldn’t be comparing films, but you must watch this one for its newness and cuteness.
The script is interesting overall, it has some great moments and scenes in both halves, but it caved in close to the climax. The reason was visible, the film seemed incomplete and everything was rushed in the end, the makers could have waited more to complete all scenes. Apart from being too long, predictable and collapsing, the script went unconvincing many times too.
But three cheers to the treatment and presentation. Even an emotional scene had a happy vibe, such was the feel of the film; fun frolic and fantasy filled.
A little better editing and execution would have made this film an ‘impossible dream come true’. The storytelling is adorable though a bit kiddo. And wait till you watch Ranbir, he’ll make you forget all and any flaw in the film, he is that perfect.
Ranbir Kapoor as Jagga, this actor can never fail, irrespective of how a film is, he just stuns every time. He may not have given block busters but he has given performances to be remembered forever, count this film in it too.
Katrina Kaif as Shruti is almost flawless in the film. Kat doesn’t always impress but when she does, we are left speechless.
Ranbir-Katrina’s chemistry is dream like. They look adorably perfect together, you just don’t want their scenes to ever end.
Saswata Chatterjee as Jagga’s father puts up a convincing and emotional act. He had one essential role and performed nicely. Sayani Gupta’s role wasn’t at all established. Saurabh Shukla as Teacher is good as always in his scenes.
Geet Sangeet (Music)
The music is just appropriate for the film, it complements the film in every way. Its new, refreshing, unusually good and makes one smile unknowingly. The choreography is brilliant and out of the box.
Nirnay (FilmyCurry Verdict)
Its a fun film for kids, definitely. And well grownups with kid’s heart, it’s a film for them too. Don’t go by the story or script or whatever you have been reading, or for that matter don’t even go by what your mind says during the film. Because when it ends, you will realize you were watching a fairytale.
