The Ranbir Kapoor-Katrina Kaif starrer, Jagga Jasoos, has been in the making for over two-and-a-half years and is finally set to release in 2017.
Director: Anurag Basu
Editor: Akiv Ali
Background & Story:
Set in a whimsical, visually imaginative and deliciously madcap world, Jagga Jasoos revolves around a young stammering and singing detective (Ranbir Kapoor), who, with a female companion (Katrina Kaif), sets out to look for his missing father. It is this journey that takes him on a life-changing adventure.
Katrina Kaif and Ranbir Kapoor, who have also worked together in Ajab Prem Ki Gazab Kahani (2009), completely nail the nerdy look in this flick. While Ranbir looks extremely fresh in his Harry Potter glasses, Katrina is seen wearing an array of spectacles and glasses.
From what we see in the trailer, the film seems to be devoid of dialogue, barring one where Ranbir Kapoor's character struggles to blurt out in the last shot. Apparently, Anurag Basu's ambitious project, Jagga Jasoos, will have 29 songs through the duration of the movie. Composer Pritam revealed that the audience would see Ranbir stutter throughout the movie. The only time he would speak and express himself without stuttering is in the songs, all 29 of them. Reportedly, the songs are a part of the narrative and take the story further.
The trailer also gives us a glimpse of varied scenes of adventure, parachutes and airplanes. If you haven't seen the trailer yet, here you go!
Stay tuned for the Jagga Jasoos film review!
