Jagga, a child orphaned at birth was growing up in a hospital. One day a man lands in the hospital with a broken leg. He is a key witness to the Purulia arms drop case. Introducing himself to Jagga as Tooty footy, he adopts him and takes him to his place. However, within a few days, he gets Jagga admitted into a boarding school and disappears mysteriously, leaving Jagga alone again. Jagga grows up in the boarding. Unsolved mysteries intrigued him and he started helping the local police inspector in solving cases.
Shruti is a school teacher who narrates Jagga’s story to kids. Jagga’s story also features her in a major role.
What is her role in Jagga’s story? Where did Jagga’s father go? Is he alive?
Jagga Jasoos Movie Review: Script Analysis
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.
Katrina Kaif’s character has been created in such a way that till the end the viewer would feel confused whether she is Jagga’s sister or friend. What is she? Find it yourself after watching the film!
Another major confusion being the locations, in one moment it’s Moynaguri, the next moment it’s Purulia and then Manipur’s Ukhrul. At times it’s difficult to make out where they are. Also, I think there was a major confusion between Kenya’s Mombasa and Brazil’s Mombaca.
Jagga Jasoos Movie Review: Star Performance
Ranbir Kapoor as Jagga shows what he is capable of. He is a gem of an actor! Watch the film for Ranbir if not for anything else!
Katrina as school teacher Shruti tries her best and does a decent job.
Saswata Chatterjee as Professor Bagchi is excellent, Rajatava Chatterjee as police inspector and Saurabh Shukla as the antagonist are good.
