After a 2-minute-44-second-long teaser and four songs, the trailer of Jagga Jasoos starring Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina kaif, has been released two weeks prior to the film. The trailer finally throws light upon the plot. A stammering Jagga (played by Ranbir Kapoor) becomes a detective, investigating a possible murder in his school while Shruti (essayed by Katrina Kaif) helps him. He is also searching for his father, played by Saswata Chatterjee. In one scene, Jagga is shown being dropped at boarding school by his father with a promise to return in ‘6 months, 7 hours and 8 minutes.’
The reason for the film being a musical is that Jagga’s incessant stammer only subsides while singing. The film features 29 songs by music composer Pritam. After multiple delays due to reshoots and budgetary concerns has been in production since 2014. Four of the 29 songs – Ullu Ka Pattha, Galti Se Mistake, Jhumri Tallaiyya and Tu Hi Hai have also been released.
Jagga Jasoos marks the second collaboration of director Anurag Basu with Ranbir Kapoor, after Barfi! (2012). Ranbir Kapoor turns producer with this film, which is co-produced by Disney India. The film is slated to release on July 14.
