Jagga Jasoos Review: Brave Attempt, But Not Everyone’s Cup of Tea

The much-anticipated, much-delayed Jagga Jasoos is finally here!
The film, directed and written by Anurag Basu, plays out like a fairytale musical. Almost every dialogue is in the form of catchy rhymes and tunes. The rhythm of the film will take some getting used to, but once you’re comfortable with the tempo, you’ll see that this truly “hatke” adventure is a far cry from the formulaic Bollywood love stories we’re so used to.

Jagga is a bespectacled little boy who chooses to stay silent so that he can hide his stammering. His life changes after he runs into a man who tells him how to overcome his speech impairment. Just sing, the man tells Jagga. And so he does. From this point on, the film transforms into an audiovisual treat, with every word and movement being beautifully synchronised.

But all of it loses its sheen because of the pace of Jagga Jasoos. With a run-time of 162 minutes, there are whole chunks – especially in the second half – that could have easily been avoided.

Overall, Jagga Jasoos is a brave attempt. It tries its hand at something new, and gets it right. But the slow and indulgent pace will ensure that the film isn’t everyone’s cup of tea.

I give it 3 Quints out of 5.
