Encouraging attempt to adopt a Comic Character on screen.
15 July 2017 | by kinshuk-gaurSee all my reviews

First thing straight Jagga Jasoos might not be one of the most magnificent movies made. But it still stand apart because it give you a sense of Nostalgia and those who have been born and brought up in late 80 and 90's will understand the comic book style imparted to the movie. Comics were craze during that era.

The movie is heavily inspired from the Iconic comic character Tintin created by Herge. The protagonist Ranbir aka Jagga is smart , Intelligent , young and cheerful , depicts all the qualities courage when he sets out in the hopes of finding his father with a fellow companion .

He considers his father alive and well against all odds, no matter who tries to tell him otherwise . Also, shows character of a pure friendship while helping Katrina in one of his ventures. These are the similar qualities depicted by Tintin in numerous of his comic characters. To relate to this movie you have to be a bit of a comic book fan. Though the movie depicts a serious message but still it shows the event with a witty flair. Jagga Jasoos is different in its treatment as here Jagga does all bond style histrionics but does not have any tact in doing whatever he does. He is no macho who will beat several guys or some high profile spy who has all the smartest gadgets to get his work done. The simplicity of the character will charm you.

You can watch Jagga Jasoos due to the following strengths. The cast is is very well balanced and all the actors have done what was expected out of them. Ranbir and Shashwat Chatterje are a step ahead among st the characters. The Cinematography is excellent and gives you a great visual treat. CGI is good. Some sequences are exactly a reproduction of few Iconic Tintin comics. Those who have read will get it.

The movie where it struggles is due to its varying pace in the first half,pathetic editing (some scenes you realize are just repeat while explaining to the viewer) I have watched such bad editing after long. Direction is not that great. Movie becomes monotonous with the sing song tone that it carries throughout though understandable the lead stammers.

To sum up Jagga Jasoos is a good and different attempt and is encouraging to see that we can also adopt comic characters may be not with the exact astuteness. Watch it for Ranbir as he shows his spark after few fiascos in the past. This will remind of the finesse of Ranbirs ability last seen in Rocket Singh and Rockstar. This might also give a lease of life to Katrina as well.
