While "Bombay Velvet'was an absolute disaster, "Jagga Jasoos" is a little above average but we must commend Ranbir Kapoor, Anurag Basu & Disney for backing this project". In the times when only newer stories are working and audiences are shunning away anything that is routine, Jagga Jasoos deserves cheers for truly attempting something as fantastic as this and scoring well too.

Veteran Bollywood movie critic and business analyst Taran Adarsh strongly put down Ranbir Kapoor's Jagga Jasoos as a misadventure.

Court denies bail to actor Dileep
Later, the police took the actor, arrested on July 10, to the Aluva Police Club for interrogation. When asked by the judge, Dileep maintained that he had no complaints against the police.

The film stars Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif in the lead with music composed by Pritam. It is directed by Anurag Basu and got more than 1800 screens in India and 610 plus screens overseas. Mumbai and Bangalore saw major footfalls on the first day of the film's release.

In the film, Jagga solves crimes while the narration is in the form of songs. Although this figure is comparatively lesser than Ranbir's previous film Ae Dil Hai Mushkil with more Rs.13 crore, it is said that his latest release is expected perform well on Saturday-Sunday considering its target audience. Katrina Kaif also does justice to her character, the support cast especially Sawata Chatterjee as Jagga's father is splendid. In his attempt to find his father, Jagga goes on an adventure that makes for a fulfilling experience. Ranbir has also gestured (to me) to not work on a film together. Both, Jagga Jasoos and Barfi seem on the same page on its day 1.
