Deaf movie review of Jagga Jasoos
A hearing perspective:
Jagga Jasoos is a Hindi film starring Ranbir Kapoor (as Detective Jagga), Katrina Kaif (as journalist Shruti) and Saswata Chatterjee (as Jagga’s guardian Bagchi / TutiFuti) in important roles.
The mystery fantasy musical adventure romantic comedy film is written and directed by Anurag Basu.
The film introduces Bagchi as a college professor who gets trapped in Purulia arms drop case.
After meeting young Jagga and knowing his speech problem, Bagchi motivates Jagga to converse with others through songs.
Bagchi adopts Jagga and they both live a happy life. However, one day Bagchi gets a job as a secret agent and decides to leave Jagga in a boarding school.
Jagga grows up as a shy, young boy with strong detective skills. He gets a VHS tape every year from Bagchi on his birthday.
When Jagga fails to receive a VHS tape on his recent birthday, he decides to find the details of Bagchi’s mysterious life and sets out on a journey along with Shruti to find his missing father.
I think the film is a one-of-its-kind experiment by the makers for arts and music lovers.
Undoubtedly, Ranbir is an effortless actor and fits the role perfectly but Katrina was average throughout the film.
The film could have been better if the story was less confusing and its climax was a little more compact and done properly.
Overall, Jagga Jasoos is a one-time watch movie for a new Bollywood experience.
