Katrina Kaif and Ranbir Kapoor are back on screen after a long time with Jagaa Jasoos. Directed by Anurag Basu, the musical adventure comedy film will finally go on floors this Friday after a series of twists, turns and delays.
The movie revolves around the character of Jagga, a gifted teenage detective who along with his female companion are on a quest to find the former’s father. Taking a look at the movie trailer, it introduces you to a very different side of Ranbir. It takes you through the character of Jagga, a young lad who sports a Tin-Tin like hairstyle. The simple, nerdy and stammering Jagga sings out his emotions in cute little songs as part of the musical.
Seconds later, there is a throwback to the past and we get to see Jagga as a child whose father promises to return from a journey within a few days. The wait for young Jagga’s father becomes eternal when he is told that his father has passed away in an accident.
But Jagga decides to rubbish away all rumours and gets on an adventure to announce to the world that his father is alive. What follows is a journey full of magic and action accompanied by Katrina who plays the character of a journalist in the movie.
The stunning visuals coupled with the fun songs makes Jagga Jasoos a perfect watch for kids. The movie has been shot over several picturesque locations in South Africa and Thailand. There will be a total of 29 songs in the movie which will be part of the narrative. All the mesmerizing tracks have been composed by Pritam.
The film also features Adah Sharma, Saurabh Shukla and Karan Wahi in supporting roles. Amitabh Bachchan and Jackie Shroff were also considered to play the role of Jagga’s missing father before Anurag Basu finally settled for Saswata Chatterjee after his convincing stint in Kahaani (2012).
