OneWordReview… #JaggaJasoos: Unbearable. This one’s a misadventure… EPIC DISAPPOINTMENT! Ranbir shines in a film that’s a costly, boring and an overstretched experiment.

But it’s a shame “Jagga Jasoos” is never more than the sum of its parts. The film’s heart – the moving father-son dynamic – is buried somewhere under all the manic Tintin-like adventure and the sensory overload it triggers. Clocking in at 2 hours and 49 minutes, much of what’s good in the film is lost amidst the many indulgences.I’m going with two out of five. It’s a disappointment, no question about it, from a team capable of so much more.

On the whole, Jagga Jasoos is a very costly experiment and a classic case of over-indulgence in a film which hardly has audience to lap it up. It is a terrible waste of resources and it should never have been made in the first place – at least and definitely not at the cost at which it has been made. At the box-office, the film will prove to be a major debacle and will be remembered as a blot on the reputations of all the people connected with it.

This is fine advice, for Basu’s film is not only intricately written and plotted, but filled with clever visual flourishes and details, some of which are clues and some of which are magical – and several, like the elephant turning a tiny, twisty street up a hill, are a bit of both. This is a dazzling, inventive and deliciously fun film, a musical mystery fable that curious children (of all ages) should watch at the soonest. This is, for want of comparison, Tintin by way of Amélie.

Dispensing with the notions of realism, Basu sets up a frothy space around his adventure fantasy that revels in its lavish imagination, meddlesome inquiries and delicious Bongness, never once pausing to catch a breath or make sense.Jagga Jasoos isn’t a particularly bright caper. It’s about seeking nirmal anand whose playful ingenuity is held together by a bag of unending tricks that lend the trip wind in its wings and cheer in its will.

It was meant to be a mega film but it turned out to be a mega mistake. You may go in with an open mind to see India’s first musical film. While it’s true to the genre, eventually the length will make your patience run out. You will be miserable if you are not a fan of musicals. Katrina Kaif is also horribly miscast and is awkward throughout the film.Ask yourself if you are ready to watch a script-less film with singing dialogues and there’s your answer.

For a film industry that adheres to certain rules of using music, Jagga Jasoos is an undeniable experiment. The screenplay is structured as chapters from a comic book; the movie uses a classroom full of kids and their teacher, Shruti (Katrina) as its main storytelling device. The films unfolds as she narrates stories from the book, and we’re pulled into Jagga’s (Ranbir) world of makeshift houses, merry characters and rhyming dialogue.Parts of Jagga Jasoos are greater than their sum. But there’s no reason you shouldn’t head to a theatre and investigate for yourself.

Except Kapoor is too old to pass off as a school-boy. And the bits between his purported teenage self and the pretty bumbler of a journo, who goes bumpity-bump through tough terrains, get a little questionable. The best part of the film is between the young Jagga and Chatterjee. A couple of the spanking songs are great fun. That’s when the movie speaks in its own voice : in the rest, it is trying to be a desi Spielberg without any of its verve.At one point in the film, a character is made to ask : bore ho gaye na? The answer, of course, is : haan bhai haan.

Jagga, throughout the first half, is shown singing while conversing but stops doing it for most of the second half. The result: Jagga stammers heavily and needlessly and after a point, it tests viewers’ patience. All these goofs would have still been redundant if the finale had some punch. Shockingly, the film ends on an abrupt and laughable note. On the whole, JAGGA JASOOS is a badly written and very poorly executed musical. The film doesn’t offer any entertainment value for either children or adults. At the box office, the film will have a tough time.

Katrina Kaif, as a mishap-prone investigative journalist, is hard-pressed to match strides with Ranbir, but the free-flowing nature of the yarn allows her enough opportunities to catch her breath when she needs to and continue to saunter along for company. It is just as well that she plays second fiddle, letting Ranbir do all the heavy lifting. He carries the weight of the film without letting the strain show. If Jagga Jasoos passes muster, it is largely due to a pivotal star turn that is worth its weight in gold and the surreal touches that Basu imparts to the fantasy.

A unique and interesting story. Anurag Basu pens an intriguing tale of a father-son story. But there is more to it than just father-son bonding. Jagga’s father Professor Bagchi’s secret mission and Jagga’s search for his missing father is what takes the story forward. I would highly recommend watching this musical with a fresh and interesting script and nice music. This is surely one of Ranbir Kapoor’s best performances.

The stuttering and singing song way of talking gets tiresome way too soon and the interest in staying with the narrative of solving these mysteries dies a premature death. Jagga is also way too long, a risk that lot of musicals take. In the case of Hollywood films like La La Land, Moulin Rouge or Chicago, the storytelling felt organic and natural, in Jagga it feels like a staged effort to impress you with every scene. Basu needs a pat on his back for trying the genre with full enthusiasm, but sometimes it also pays to curb the same Jagga Jasoos is only worth a watch for Ranbir Kapoor’s class act. As a musical, the film falters on several notes.
