One Line Review: Fun movie, shot exotically with musical experience and many cute moments!
Positive Points: Strong plot, fascinating storytelling and brilliant cinematography packed with cute characters and many fun moments!
Negative Points: The song Ullu Ka Pattha is misplaced and creates a loophole, climax chase scene is too choppy and face-paced which creates confusion and momentary poor use of CGI which was unnecessary for Ostrich race!
JAGGA JASOOS is a surprise musical. The experiment by Anurag Basu is cinematic that gives a nostalgic and haunting deja vu of a Hollywood song and dance extravaganza. This falooda of our desi Feluda meeting Indiana Jones and TINTIN has something for those who love to cha cha cha (read dance in glee) for such cinema but what about the rest?I made a pledge that I won't count the 29 songs in this naacha gaana as I believed that in all this jaw droopingly gorgeous looking and courageously adventurous glory, JAGGA JASOOS will excite me more with its story.More »

Sing along musicals are a Hollywood forte. Hindi films may have their share of singing and dancing, but to have a full blown musical with very little spoken dialogue, is a unique and rare proposition. Anurag Basu's Jagga Jasoos is a certified Disney powered children's musical film. Sadly, it's not as polished as usual Disney products. Full marks to the filmmaker for trying, but this whimsical adventure story panning across continents is not exactly as good as it could have been.More »
