What Went Wrong With Jagga Jasoos ?

Jagga Jasoos released with box office heavy weights like Ranbir Kapoor, Katrina Kaif, Anurag Basu, still the movie was not able to cater to Indian audience.

The film as a whole is actually not a bad movie, its just not ready for the Indian Audience, you would understand what I am saying, if you have watched a typical Disney Musical Movie !

Jagga Jasoos” is not a bad movie, but it failed to convey that its an out-an-out Musical Movie and Indian audience are not ready for it.

I remember watching the movie for the first 10 minutes and saying to myself “My god, its a musical movie !!“, there can be only two things about a musical, either you like it very much or you just hate it.

I wondered, should I just walk out or continue watching the movie, finally I did endure the entire movie, but all this could have been avoided if the promos could have conveyed that its a musical movie and not the regular mirch masala bollywood movie.

The movie has a nice story line, the suspense is there and its an absolute delight to watch the veteran actor Saswata Chatterjee (Who plays Tuti Fruti in the movie). The movie has very nice backgrounds, cinematography and Katrina Kaif is looking gorgeous as ever.

If you love musical movies or may be going out with kids, then this movie is for you. I wonder was it made musical because Disney was involved or was it the idea of Anurag Basu ?

Absolutely nothing wrong with making a musical, unlike Hollywood we always have had music and songs in our movies, so I think it would be hard to find appreciation for an out-an-out musical movie.

I must say, Anurag Basu has done a fabulous job at creating the movie, its difficult to direct a movie with off beat format and excel at doing it, full marks to him on that !

I would have loved to see the movie in a regular Bollywood format, or may be going to the movie theatre knowing what to expect.
