Shared below are views - Beyond the initial review with some more interesting insights.
As an exceptional team work JAGGA JASOOS truly shows a strong will to make a breakthrough exploring a rarely tried genre in Hindi cinema of ‘a dedicated musical’. The attempt is no doubt a praiseworthy one, but it does lack a lot in terms of commercial requirement of a project, capable of entertaining the audience, now habitual of watching their typical Hindi film with its key essential elements.
Having said that, it’s unarguably a big irony that in an industry known for its films full of songs and dances, we don’t have even five committed musicals to name that have been widely accepted by the viewers becoming big hits at the box office. The sad truth is sure going to be the same with the present JAGGA JASOOS too as the film is not entirely a highly entertaining venture having a lot of uninteresting moments coming at regular intervals. In fact as mentioned in the review one needs to be well-prepared with a pre-conditioned mind of a child if he or she really wishes to enjoy the unusual proceedings on the screen presented in a musical format.
It seems both the director Anurag Basu and his lead actor Ranbir Kapoor were quite convinced about their collective creative vision but many in the team were not, including the main financers of the film or the production house. Probably that is the reason it took so many years in the making with some repeated obstacles and then faced a lot of trouble in the post production too affecting the final outcome. Kartina’s poor dubbing and chopping off Govinda’s cameo from the film are the clear evidences of the same.
In short, a few directors here are certainly trying to break the set-pattern experimenting with their fresh ideas. But they are unfortunately not hitting the bulls-eye proving their novel vision. Hope JAGGA JASOOS turns out to be a crucial stepping stone in this noble process and we soon get to see an innovative, experimental film where both the makers and the viewers are on the same wave-length.
Ratings : 2.5 + 0.5 / 5 (with the additional 0.5 for the creatively novel effort made by the entire team)

Great to know that kids and everyone loved it Saravjit.

I was expecting a huge write-up on this film.There are certainly a lot to talk about it....and providing a detail write up would have benefited readers in coming time and reconsider the movie. Especially when we want such movies to be made in future.  
Bobby Sing

It all depends upon the movie Mustafa. I surrender my writing to the film and its the film only that can extract a detailed or long write-up out of me. Sadly Jagga Jasoos coudln't do that, coming up as an innovative but not upto the mark attempt by a courageous team.
